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. Before long he’d joined a ska-punk band with Gabriel Legeleux, who’d go on to become fellow rising star in French electronic music, Superpoze. By 2013, he’d kindled a buzz in Cargo de Caen, creating a reputation under the name of Fakear His electronic collages were inspired by influences as divergent but inspiring as the post-dubstep scene in London, and the films of Miyazaki. Subsequent single “La Lune Rousse” gained millions of listeners across Spotify, Soundcloud and French radio, and this helped him to debut on the international level. It was in this new setting that Fakear crafted his debut album Animal. The album title recalls the wolf silhouette that he has tattooed on his forearm. Chez Fakear, the machines never filter the instincts. Animal ranges from the flamenco refrain of “Sheer-Khan”, through the original composition with Andreya Triana 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. In the studio as on the boards, Fakear’s music is lively, incarnated and instinctive.
Princess Nokia is the alias of rapper Destiny Frasqueri. The New York native’s proud individualism is related in a confrontational, often-humorous style across conceptually varied projects such as 1992, A Girl Cried Red, and the simultaneously issued Everything Sucks and Everything Is Beautiful, all of which have been self-released. Before they named themselves after a brand of phone made available to low-income earners in the U.S., Frasqueri went by the names Destiny and Wavy Spice, collaborated with the likes of Ratking, and became known for offhanded tracks such as “Bitch I’m Posh” and “Yaya.” After label interest heightened their skepticism of the music industry, they changed their alias to Princess Nokia and built a fan base with the mixtapes Metallic Butterfly and Honeysuckle, as well as an EP, 1992. A remastered and expanded edition of 1992, 1992 Deluxe, arrived on the Rough Trade label almost exactly a year after the original edition, and registered on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. Frasqueri toured extensively – including club and festival dates across Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Oceania, and the U.S. – in support of the release. The following year, Frasqueri issued the mixtape A Girl Cried Red, a cathartic synthesis of cloud rap and pop-punk. After some intermediary singles, they simultaneously issued Everything Sucks and Everything Is Beautiful, half-hour LPs showcasing contrasting sides of their personality.
