Fakear Animal on 2LP + Download
Fakear is Théo Le Vigoreux - an uncannily suitable name for a young producer whose energy is seemingly limitless. At 24 years old, Fakear has already taken his globally-tuned dance music across the world, playing shows from London to Tokyo, supporting Bonobo and selling out Paris' prestigious Olympia in 2015.
The journey that's led to 2016 and his debut album, Animal, has been three years and 4 EPs long. Animal ranges from the flamenco refrain of "Sheer-Khan," through the original composition with Andreya Triana (Bonobo) on "Light Bullet," to a stunning collaboration with Rae Morris, a new pop star in-the-making with whom Fakear maintains an elegant complicity.
Throughout the album, Fakear ensured that his electronic methodology enhanced, rather than limited his raw instinct. He built sounds from memories and from talismanic items. The result is an album as suited to the dance floor as it to listening under the stars, or in the moonlight of the Lune Rousse. In the studio as on the boards, Fakear's music is lively, incarnated and instinctive. Definitively Animal.
