Haydn Farmer signs at Open House Records...

Haydn Farmer - DJ/Producer - UK
He is originally from Birmingham and started to get into producing music when he was 19 and has been producing since.
Haydn studied a Urban and Electronic Music Production course during his time at university.
He grew up listening to Northern Soul, Motown and Disco from a very early age, and his music has influences from early Detroit Techno, New York Style House and Disco.
Haydn started going to raves since in his teen years and loved the culture of the underground music scene. Listening to early techno legends such as Kevin Sanderson and Frankie Knuckles etc started his love affair for the underground music world and collecting records.
This intrigued him to go to local rave scenes around the Birmingham area such as Rainbow Venues. Watching DJ’s such as Doorly, Tom Shorterz and Pete Graham at these raves, fuelled his desire to want to learn how to DJ and got him inspired to produce his own music.
During his time at university creating an FMP was required for the final assessment of the course. For his FMP he got his ideas from being inspired by producers such as MK, Dennis Ferrer and Roger Sanchez.
The FMP has a tribal twist containing samples from recordings of a Tanzanian tribe on a few of the tracks.
