Introducing Fakear, the brightest star of France’s electronic new wave. Like William the Conqueror, Théo Le Vigoureux, AKA Fakear, hails from Caen in Normandy, but his own invasion of British shores promises to be rather less traumatic. Combining the European nouse for depth, quality and irresistible dancefloor groove with a globally attuned ear, his music sits somewhere on the axis linking Bonobo, Jamie XX and Daft Punk.
Already a rising star in France, Fakear has sold out Paris’ legendary Olympia, and his debut mini-album Sauvage breached the top 10 chart. Embedded in a crop of new electronic talent that includesDream Koala, Stwo and Superpoze,
Fakear’s debut full length will arrive in 2016 on Counter Records but until then, we leave you with “De La Luz, ” meaning “of the light” in Spanish and taken from the Light Bullet EP out 13th November.

We’ve already heard Andreya Triana‘s “Gold“, the lead single from the Soulful Londoner’s highly anticipated album, ‘Giants’, out on Counter Records on March 23rd 2015. The single is out on March 16th and is supported by the Momentum Music Fund. A testa-ment to her love of music and an expression of her joy of singing and songwriting, “Gold” is a confident and self assured track. A joyous stomp of a single, combining an incessant beat with Andreya’s raw, layered vocals, “Gold” is sure to captivate and inspire the listener.
You can now stream four great remixes of the track, by the likes of Hackman, Fakear, Nikich and Fort Romeau (here). Andreya plays Village Underground on April 2nd and releases her new album ‘Giants’ on May 4th.
