Just recently, we had the chance to talk to DJ and producer, Samy (@djsamy.infrared) who is currently making a buzz in the Kingdom’s music scene.
When were you first inspired by music and underground culture?
I was always drawn to electronic music in general. After a trip around Europe, specifically Berlin, I discovered a new culture and taste to the electronic sound, which kept growing on me the more I dived deeper into it!
What brought you to the music scene in Bahrain?
Being around music and being around friends who all had varied tastes in music. I also started out as a drummer when I was young, however, I was more into hip hop in my younger days. I even went through a rapper phase! I eventually settled on DJing, music production and events, which I found myself enjoying the most.
What has been your favorite venue/location you’ve played at so far?
That would surely be Calexico! It’s the perfect spot for an underground event or any other.
Tell us about your creative process – from an idea to your final product perspective.
I’m not very sure if I have an actual process. The creativity waves flow in and I do my best to put these ideas into plan, in a way that makes sense, is enjoyable, unique and shows attention to detail. This applies to all aspects of what I do.
Any upcoming events you’re particularly excited for?
I’m excited for all the events happening in Bahrain. There’s been a lot of hard work and effort put in by a lot of individuals or teams who care about providing people with the means of a good time and entertainment. From artists and promoters to sound technicians, and more. It’s cool to see the music scene in Bahrain growing stronger every day.
