Through the rollercoaster of a year that 2020 has been, music has been a consistent form of escape and entertainment for many people. Whether it’s a new album drop, a live-streamed performance or writing one’s first song in the confines of quarantine, Miller Genuine Draft has continued to celebrate the artists, creatives and fans who give energy to the music space, even as our typical ways of consuming it have changed. Celebrating the hustlers who provide us with exceptional music experiences, the beer brand has launched Behind the Creative, a new initiative that spotlights Canadian musicians, dancers, choreographers, producers and writers. Each talent pulls back the curtain on their process, starting off with DJ Fafa Khan, who shares insider tips for live streaming a DJ set.
The Montreal-based DJ has made her presence in the EDM scene known thanks to an eclectic style that made her sought after for underground parties, festivals and events. Recently, she’s been providing fans all over the world with a dose of her distinctive musical style with live-streamed sets on Twitch that maintain the same energy as her in-person performances. “Online, I’m coming to a space where I get to do what I want and people tune in because they want to know what I personally listen to and what I personally vibe to,” she says. Doing things on her own terms, Fafa taps into the places that inspire her taste the most, including her hometown. “I’m really influenced by Montreal, just based on the fact that we’re bilingual here — French rap, Dancehall, Tribal…it’s been a blessing to be a DJ in this city.”
Check out the video above to watch Fafa share her must-have equipment and DJ essentials, preferred streaming platforms and how Miller Genuine Draft captures the creativity of her community.
