Electronic impresario Nathan Fake has just delivered a new album Steam Days, and he’s set to showcase his handiwork in Australia this summer on a Novel tour. It’s been a while since we last saw the Border Community recruit weave his magic here, as he’s been intently focused on album-making. Since the release of his mini-album Hard Islands in 2009, Fake set to work on a follow-up (while finding time for a remix effort on Radiohead’s KOL RMX 1234567 and occasional gigs). In late January, he’s set to play Rainbow Serpent Festival, then continue on to Perth and Sydney.
“The last two records sound really clean to me now,” Fake says. “This one has the perfect amount of grit in it, I think. I’ve put a lot of time into finding different ways to erode sounds, to make them sound wooden and earthy instead of plastic and metal.” You can listen to Steam Days in the Soundcloud embed below.
Earlier this year, the producer was also enlisted by Inverted Audio to helm the 50th entry in its mix series, and you can still listen to his session. As inthemix wrote at the time, his set weaves together atmospheric, sonorous techno and bass music with serious groove throughout – not the kind of music for gazing at your shoes. The tracklist ticks off everyone from bass innovators like Lukid and Zomby through to touchstones like Plastikman, Kenny Larkin and even The Prodigy (in remixed form).
Nathan Fake tour dates:
Sun 27th Jan – Melbourne, Rainbow Serpent Festival
Fri 1st Feb – Perth, The Likes of You
Sat 2nd Feb – Sydney, Chinese Laundry
