Interview with Haokah (Fake Society, RO)





They perform an analog live set and sounds vary from minimal to techno. Their tracks are supported by artists like SIT, Arapu, Sublee and they can be found playing events such as Picnic Fonic Festival, Dakini Festival, Dubla or Eden in Bucharest, sharing the decks with artists like Cezar, Herodot, Sublee, Sedee and many more.




Where or how did you come up with your stage name?

Well, in the forest tasting the beauty of nature and life with friends and tents we got to the story of heyoka, the sacred mirror of yourself that shows you spiritually who you really are, keeping the balance in the world between lightness and darkness.


If you had to describe your sound in 5 words unrelated to music, what would you say?

Soul, balance, light, dark, vibrations.


Who is your biggest inspiration?

We can't say a person when they are so many but Arapu and Sublee's style and energy meant a lot for us.


Are you able to share any of your tricks with me?

We don't have any tricks, we belive work, passion and work, takes you on the right path.


What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it?

Trentamoller - miss you

Frankie knuckles - the whistle song


If you could eternally be stuck in one year’s music scene, which year would it be?

This year because the romanian minimal scene comes from a culture "with an eye" for the high quality music, rythm and sound so we are happy to see how it's growing everywhere in the world.


Do you have a favorable equipment?

You need to try many to choose which one fits you well but we love Korg Radias, it was bought in 2006 and showed the way.


What is the vibe or style you wish to cultivate? 

We have a romanian word, "fâşneț", which means a lively and soulfull style.


Where was the three performances you cant forget this year?

Well, our last really vibrating performances were Meet me by the lake, in Codlea, the last Dubla party in Iaşi and of course the last one with Fake Society in Istanbul, we had a brand new set and the crowd from the Minimuzikhol club was amazing.
