Fareoh has been consistently cranking out some of the most anthemic tunes in the world of progressive house. Armed with a repertoire of fierce melodies and entrancing beats, this young talent is one performer whose ceiling has no limit.
Originating as a classically-trained EDM producer, FareOh’s recent transition to DJing has been smoother than anyone ever expected. Indeed, he seems born to command audiences from behind the decks. His music harks back to some of the more Ibiza-influenced strains of last decade’s house, while still maintaining some of the harder electro style of his early productions. Fareoh’s masterful use of uplifting vocals sets him apart from the usual flotsam and jetsam of dance music producers. His original mix of “Facepaint” (for Cr2 Records) was one of the hits of the summer in 2012. “Feathers,” a collaboration with beatmaker Archie, is likewise an inspirational club masterpiece.
No matter what source material he works with, Fareoh (aka Ian Spurrier) always displays an unmistakable melodic style. Whether it be an acid rework of the will.i.am and Felix da Housecat track, “Burn the Disco,” or a remix of Wynter Gordon’s “Buy My Love,” his sound will cater to both dancefloors and radio playlists alike.
A fixture at New York establishments like Pacha, Fareoh consistently brings a forceful energy to the decks. His mesmerizing beats entice crowds into uncontrollable movement and wreck dancefloors from coast to coast. Along the way, he’s opened up for the likes of David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Avicii, Kaskade, and a slew of other tastemakers.
