GEORGE FAYA - VERBOTEN
A born and raised New Yorker, George Faya has been DJ'ing since 1992, longer than many "house" and "techno" fans have been alive...
Like many, Faya had been a devoted fan of seminal electronic acts like Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode, then discovered classic deep house during its early heyday of the 1990's, while at the same time exploring industrial and EBM artists like Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb. Meanwhile, Detroit techno had made it's way to NYC and offered yet another color in the palate, and with the additional influence of artists like Aphex Twin, Autechre and Funkstörung, it all clicked.
He was fortunate enough to have been able to enjoy NYC's nightlife before then-mayor Rudy Giuliani's crackdown changed everything. Limelight, The Tunnel, Vinyl, Twilo, Save the Robots, The Palladium – they all suffered the same fate, but not before they made their indelible mark on him.
Nowadays, Faya's range extends from downtempo/"nu disco" sounds to peak hour tech-house to hard-driving techno, but he considers his sweet spot to be a mix of pumping modern deep house and atmospheric edgy & dubby techno.
