London Producer FNP Evokes Summer Bliss on Nu-Disco Remix
East London producer FNP returns with an effervescent, Nu-Disco anthem by remixing ‘The Times’ by Hayes & Y. Drawing on the summer vibe and utilising his trademark Nu-Disco sound, it’s a track that’s perfect for the summer months. Filled with elements of funk, soul and classic disco, it’s an emphatic summer anthem sure to land with fans of Purple Disco Machine and Todd Terje.
Since beginning his musical journey playing drum and bass events at University, the multi-faceted producer FNP has added many strings to his musical career. Aside from his productions, he’s spent years working in marketing roles in the industry, as well as founding labels Slinkiemusic and Bottled Sauce, picking up some notable fans including Teki Latex, Avalon Emerson, Ross From Friends, Loxy & Resound & Palace.
On his own projects, the London producer has gained support from Thump Magazine, Clash, Data Transmission, Indieshuffle, Dummy Magazine and Complex with many more following suit. His releases in the last few years have pushed the envelope for leftfield techno, synthwave and house with significant support from streaming platforms. Across Spotify his recent releases have picked up over 700k streams worldwide, with Amazon Music also supporting across their ‘Electric Disco’ and ‘Progressive Dance’ playlist.
The result of a chance encounter between the two artists, FNP heard the original track and had a clear vision of how the track would adapt to his sound. Speaking on the inspiration behind the new remix, he states:
I had received a press release for the original version of ‘The Times’ and was blown away. I immediately got in touch, as I knew the chord pattern and the funky guitar licks would lend themselves to a nu-disco rework perfectly. New groove, a new structure and some analogue synth elements and we all love the result”
