Fanu has been making electronic music since the early 90’s. Growing up he was drawn to early hip hop which soon morphed into drum and bass & jungle. Attracted to the dope beats of The Future Sound of London, Underworld, Photek, Metalheadz, Dj Shadow and Dj Krust motivated him to make organic, rich-sounding electronic music. Fanu has had his music picked up and released by Metalheadz, Commercial Suicide, Warm Communications and Subtitles. His own imprint, Lightless Recordings, started in 2006, has gone on to have countless memorable releases including his 8 solo studio albums.
Fanu’s Dj sets are equally as exciting and sonorous as his productions. A true reader of the crowd he is able to skillfully captivate on a multitude of levels. Not one for formality or similarity his sets excite whilst not conforming to the status quo. He is able to tickle the brains of old school ‘headz’ whilst exciting with those looking for the next weighty dub. Fanu aims to live long in the subconscious memory.
Fanu’s energetic breakbeat workouts have always stood out. Drum n bass tracks such as critically acclaimed ‘Siren Song’ and ‘Recharge’ have also been noted by his peers. His hip hop productions as FatGyver, have allowed him to showcase his experimental pallet and repertoire for the love of beats and tight production. His modern-day D&B experiments blend breaks, jungle and 808s that are inspired by an ever-growing influx of new rhythms. Fanu’s cuts have always exuded funk, soul and classic r&b. It’s this veritable mishmash of styles that have stayed true to his vision.
2020 sees Fanu back in the studio with more inspired breakbeat crate-digging knowledge in development and on the way.
