In the Trance music scene
Farhad is a new rising star
- Armin Van Buuren
What is trance without emotion? According to Farhad Mahdavi, they are one and the same.
Hailing from Iran, Mahdavi’s production efforts revolve around giving his listeners the opportunity to feel alive. He believes that music comes from nature, and like the roar of a mighty jungle cat, it should resonate deep within one’s soul.
Born in 1993, Mahdavi’s musical journey began during childhood when he found a toy keyboard. It was an instant fascination that evolved into a passion for music and nature. And it inspired a dream to make a difference in the world.
His new and inspired life started when he grasped the passion embedded in trance. He found himself inspired by its uplifting qualities and felt liberated to experiment. Propelled by a desire to create his own style, he fused elements of classical and orchestral music into his work.
While most trance is imbued with positive energy, what makes Farhad’s work special is its capacity to make listeners feel something real. Believing in the magic of traditional instruments, Farhad endeavors to help his listeners find the romance within themselves.
But music is not his only passion. Farhad also works as a film composer, and his second genre is orchestral music. As such, he has produced music for many films and TV series, bringing life to moving imagery.
Still, music is Farhad’s first love. As an artist, he strives to always consider himself an amateur, thereby maintaining the perpetual motivation to soar above the bounds of limitation.
His remix for Matt Chowski’s One Wish played 2 times by Aly & fila also his “Peaceland” played 3 times by them. His track “Warsaw played 2 times by Armin Van Buuren and voted as Future Favorite.
In 2016 he released a collaboration with one of the legends of Trance history Paul van Dyk with a vocal by Sue McLaren.
