Detroit born Kamau Baaqi moved from the Motor City to Sharjah, U.A.E, in 2008, aged 16. As he tells it, the music scene he found on arrival felt as barren as the surrounding deserts. A ban exists in Sharjah on playing music in public, but somewhat paradoxically, it was in here in the Middle East, rather than the birthplace of techno, that he began treading his unique path as Darling Farah and experimenting with music production. Too young to play in clubs and without peers to offer feedback, he looked to the internet where he connected with Civil Music, the London label identifying early on something special in the young producers music. Soon followed three EPs, each displaying a distinct continuity of vision and loosely using the 4/4 structure as a frame on which to hang influences ranging from to techno teutonics, deeper house and classic IDM, to London bass music and Germanic electronics. Farah says “I wanted a refined sound, a mature, lasting sound”
