Oppikoppi 2010: Nechama Brodie Falls in Love with DJ Haezer
It was love at first bassline beat: 26 year old DJ Haezer’s unique stylings and hypnotic rhthyms had even Nechama Brodie in a trance. Brodie learns that it’s Haezer’s fusion of his own tracks with popular remixes that gives him that special edge. As for his secret to success; it’s all about the crowd for Haezer:
Haezer’s sound falls under what he calls the “trash electro genre. It’s distinguished by the heavy, distorted basslines that have more of a guitarish sound then a clean synth.” It’s the kind of music that’s hard to sing back to the guy at the CD shop, but sounds just right when you’re in a club — or at a wild party under the stars.
I fell in love with Haezer a little before 1.41am on August 8 at Oppikoppi. I posted it on Twitter: “I think I am in love with the DJ.” And, I swear, that never happens to me. I blame it on the dust, the Red Bull and the energy of a slightly scruffy 26-year-old who doesn’t like interviews very much (our entire correspondence is conducted by email, at his request) but loves performing for a crowd.
