Lay-Far is a DJ / producer, based in Moscow and host of “In-Beat-Ween Sessions” podcast.
He has been producing and releasing a steady flow of top notch beat driven dance floor bombs for a few years now and with the release of “So Many Ways”, his first album in November 2013 registering on so may influential radars, he has hit the road and has guested at many clubs across Europe in 2014 and many more already lined up.
We were lucky enough to host a Lay-Far DJ mix on our podcast about three years ago which showcased Lay-Far’s wide ranging love of music.
We also had the pleasure of catching his two sets at the Suncebeat festival in Croatia in 2013 and it could be argued that he stole the show and was definitely the most talk about artist at the festival. You need to catch this guy’s live dj set to experience his phenomenal skills.
