Mix of The Day: Exclusive Fobator Mix
Occasionally we like to go off the beaten track here at DT and deliver something that catches our fans by surprise and for today’s Mix Of The Day we’ve crossed over the Channel to France to introduce you to sounds of Fobator.
We’ve been enjoying Fobator’s Gallic flair behind the decks and in the studio for a while now here in London and so to celebrate the French DJ and producer’s returns to Pointé Records for his ‘Always Gone’ EP invited him to deliver an exclusive mix for your aural delights this afternoon.
Speaking on the new EP Fobator explains that in many ways the tracks are an expression of the early stages of his career and were in fact just waiting for the right time for release stating: “Always Gone and Welcome Home emerged in November 2012. It was a busy period of my young career, as I had been working on many productions and performing lots of gigs at the Social Club. I wanted to release them on the label as soon as possible but I was producing many other tracks at the same time. I decided to keep them in the bottom of my drawer for the right time. The idea of this EP was to combine a catchy “Club” beat with smooth breaks. And here is the result.”
As a producer Fobator has released music on numerous labels including Finland’s Top Billin and as a DJ he’s shared the stage with the likes of Dusty Kid, Flight Facilities and Maelstrom. He’s also a member of Get Monet, a DJ collective who’ve performed with artists and labels such as Ed Banger Records, Cherokee and Chateaubriand.
With big plans for 2014 we’re sure that you are sure to enjoy his bass driven house set.
