We are so proud and excited to have this week dedicated to showcasing the amazing talents of the “Godfather of SA Electro music”, HAEZER. He has just released his latest EP, Gold Plated Frequencies, which has been received with great enthusiasm and interest. We got to chat with HAEZER ahead of him releasing the EP, this is how it went down:
MA: Hi HAEZER, how you doing?
I’m good, it’s hitting the busiest time of the year now and I’m super pumped and ready for it!
MA: Its the end of another awesome year for SA music in general, what has been some of you highlights of the year?
My biggest highlight was playing southside and hurricane festival in Germany alongside chase and status and gessafelstein
MA: Today is the release of your latest EP “GOLD PLATED FREQUENCIES”, tell us a little bit about this EP.
It’s been more than a year since my last release and there’s a reason for that. Partly because of all the touring, but also because I’ve taken my sweet time sitting on tracks I’ve made since The Wrong Kid Died and refining them until I’m 100% happy with them. This ep is much more calculated and thought through. Every synth, sample and sound in every track has been meticulously placed and worked on until I was absolutely certain that I’m happy with the overall product.

MA: Where did the name come from?
I guess you hear this a lot, but it just came to me. Music is just various frequencies put together and as an electronic producer you stare at the waveforms for hours and that’s how the name came about.
MA: Which track will be the dance floor shaker this summer?
Bass addict for clubs and minted for festivals.
MA: You will also be doing your first LIVE visual show called”GOLD PLATED & LIVE”, what can we expect from that?
You can expect the usual crazy energy on stage from me, but this time with specialized stage design, lighting and visuals to accommodate the music and create a synchronized audio visual experience that will hopefully blow everyone away! It’s also the first time that I will be playing solely my own productions which is very exciting. It’s easy to dj everyone’s favorite tracks, but to keep an audience engaged playing only your own productions is a huge accomplishment.
MA: Where did the idea for such a show come up?
Touring Europe and playing with big artists with their specific setups really opened my eyes. It just made the shows so much more enjoyable.
MA: Who have you teamed up with to create this LIVE visual show?
GRIET ARTISTS. Golden circle, cape lazers, darkroom contemporary and fiancé knowles
MA: Is there anything else that you are working on that we might be interested in?
I’m touring Europe with my new Ep for 3 months from June next year and I’m currently remixing Italian duo Cyberpunkers
MA: Where can we follow you?
MA: Is there any International festival that you still wish to play at one day?
I love techno and tomorrowland
THANK YOU HAEZER FOR ALLOWING US THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS WEEK EP RELEASE, REVIEW AND INTERVIEW WITH YOU!!! GOOD LUCK FOR THEE REST OF 2013 & FOR A MASSIVE 2014!!!
