Download a free remix from Fanu

Share

fanu.jpgWith the September release date of his ‘Paracosm’ / ‘Yin Dub’ 12″ fast-approaching, Finnish beatsmith Fanu is offering up a drum-laden freebie for your enjoyment.

A juke-flavoured remix of ‘101 South’ by Two Fingers (a.k.a. Amon Tobin), the track is a medley of atmospheric jingles, tough vox and, as is to be expected from any Fanu tune, a host of finely crafted drum work. After expressing his great admiration for Tobin (“he’s fucking insane with his drums – and with his everything”), Fanu’s self-written promo goes on to explain how the remix came about:

“I was working on my now soon-to-be-released FatGyver hip hop works in early 2013 and asked Amon if I could do a hip hop remix of 101 South,” says the Finn. “I got the samples, but for some reason, that remix never really picked up, but I kept the samples. This summer, I went to the countryside, and the weather was just being pretty bad. The inspiration can really hit you when you’re in nature, so I wrote this one in a few good sittings.”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
