My 5 Pieces of Gear ‘On Tour’ by Fatima Hajji


Young DJ, composer Fatima Hajji has been DJing for almost 20 years.

Fátima, Spanish by birth but with Arab origins is a confessed lover of nature and animals, as well as striking colours… and of course, she’s in steadfast love of a fireproof music genre like Techno. From its analogue and classical roots – she’s specialist in bringing up her deep African origins- through more contemporary sounds, including Techno-house. She stands for freshness, audacity and ruthless grooves, ideal medicine for having fun.

She is also an entrepreneur and owns three record labels StandbiteTaikatta and Silver M (her current techno imprint/event brand that’s growing month-by-month). She also releases her music on imprints such as Unity Records and Pornographic Recordings amongst others. 

Ahead of a busy touring schedule we are asked her to give us her 5 Pieces of Essential Gear ‘On Tour’.

Pioneer RMX-1000:
This is an essential item for my sets. It allows me to play and work with different effects in my sets and totally change some sounds. I really love it, especially mine (its a white one), and the transmission cables are very good as well. I carry it everywhere 🙂

3 x USBs sticks:
I carry 3 sticks with exactly the same music on, as you never know when one can fail. Also, one of them is in a different bag, just in case 🙂 

15 x vinyls: 
Usually I don’t play them but if all the sound circumstances are correct, I get a lot of enjoyment from bringing some with me and being able to play some in my sets.

Sliver clothing:
I’m always wearing something silvery, especially my jacket (it was more silvery when I bought it 😛 ) and my boots. For a long time I’ve liked to wear silvery stuff while performing. The silver colour attracts me incredibly.  

An energetic drink:
I’m used to waking up 1 hour before my set time. I need to sleep properly before I go on stage to have maximum energy and a drink helps make the “from the bed to the stage” process work a lot faster. I’d drink a maximum of 2, if I drink more I can’t sleep after the party and it’s not nice. During the week I don’t use it.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
