I always liked music, but I guess the first time it became something I wanted to do for a living was 4-5 years ago when I moved to London for a year. It was the starting point of my career. I was DJ-ing around and had started my first productions as Feder.
I’m a big fan of Jamie xx. His songwriting and productions are just great. Also, ‘Settle’ by Disclosure is also huge to me.
Previously, you’ve worked with the likes of Alex Aiono and Lyse, who would you say is next on your list of collaborations?
I’m currently in the process of writing my debut album. So it’s a bit hard to tell who exactly will appear on it as featuring artists. But I can say that I would like it to be a good balance between absolute newcomers and more established artists.
Zak and I are signed to the same label. I was looking for someone to perform on TV with me as Alex Aiono was in LA and I received a few clips from his live performance for BBC. I liked his voice quite a lot. Then he came to Paris, and we rehearsed together. He was a lot of fun to be around, he has such a chilled vibe.
I’d love to. My booking agents are actually based in London. So I’ll hopefully be playing there early 2017. I need to plan this with them soon. To be honest, London is one of my favourite cities in the world.
Christmas is usually not a busy time. I like to stay with my family and friends. But I might be in Dubai for NYE. That’s something else I need to discuss with my agents haha. And I’m touring and doing promo a lot before December!
Take a look at Feder’s latest release below.
