After being away for six years I signed some music to nice labels and am finishing up more than a few albums.

Lowlights?
Seeing people close to me struggle and not being able to help them.

Robert Hood with his Floorplan project with the track “Tell You No Lie”

2017 Rewind: Fadi Mohem

Fadi Mohem

How was the year 2017 for you?
Fadi Mohem: 2017 was a really good year for me, mainly because I had a lot of time to focus on my music. I swapped some of my studio gear and built up a nice workflow, where I enjoy to finish my projects.

Highlights?
After several years of music making I finally got to release my first record on Werk, a label established by good friends of mine. Receiving the records from the pressing plant was definitely a big highlight! Another highlight was the ski vacation with close friends in Austria, where I was reminded how much energy I get from spending time in nature (especially in the mountains).

Lowlights?
When I look back there is nothing I can complain about.

Song of the year?
S.O.N.S’ “A New Life” (Planet Earth Mix)

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
To finish and release more music, play more gigs and spend more time with my family and friends.

Lowlights?
The album took us longer than we expected to finish but in the end it was totally worth it.

Song of the year?
Childish Gambino’s “Redbone”

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
To make our second album better than the first!

How has 2017 been for you?


Xenia Ghali: Really intense! My single “Places” went to #1 on the Billboard dance club songs chart. I had the busiest summer tour I’ve had so far, which included headlining three festivals in Greece, and I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of really talented and inspiring people throughout the year.

Highlights?


I can’t say that there was a specific highlight or moment that shines over the others. This year has offered me a lot of amazing experiences. A few include my second #1 Billboard dance club song, having the busiest summer tour I’ve had so far in my career, which included headlining three festivals in Greece, and collaborating with some of the most talented musicians and artist’s I’ve ever met.


Lowlights?


Having absolutely no vacation time.

Song of the year?
Camelphat & Elderbrook’s “Cola”

What’s your New Year resolution?
Balance out my year so that I can spend more time with my family and my friends and of course write and produce lots of records that I’m proud of.
