Born in San Jose, CA, of Indonesian, Singaporean and Arab descent, Farid’s interest in Pop/R&B and general entertainment began at an early age, where he spent years informally singing, finding, learning and perfecting his sound.
Inspired by 90′s R&B greats such as Babyface and Boyz II Men, Farid hopes to bring back that quality of smooth Soul to “Pop” music, while not ignoring it’s fun-loving youthful nature.
Farid currently resides in Santa Clara, CA. He is a practicing Muslim and hopes to create quality, Islamic songs and Muslim music that is comparable to mainstream popular music. While he is Muslim, he embraces all parts of his identity, which he also expresses in his music.
His first mix, “Scratch”, is a fresh endeavor into the industry, and as indicated by it’s title, is a canvas for his musical experimentation.
