CMU Approved

Approved: Fakear

By | Published on Monday 11 April 2016


Fakear, aka producer Théo Le Vigoureux, has been repeatedly knocking it out of the park with his fine brand of dense, warm electronic music in recent years. It’s sent him high up the charts back home in France and put him in high demand as both a remixer and producer elsewhere. Now he’s announced that he will release his debut album, ‘Animal’, through Counter Records on 10 Jun.

Tracks like ‘La Lune Rousse’ and ‘Skyline’ show instantly why Fakear’s made such a mark on his fans, as does latest single ‘Sheer-Khan’, a track inspired by the tiger of the same name in ‘The Jungle Book’. Using his instantly recognisable vocal cut-ups and an array of intriguing samples, it’s yet another unfeasibly good piece of music to add to his catalogue.

More details of the album are due soon, and you can catch Fakear live this week at XOYO in London on 14 Apr.
