Singapore-based producer Fauxe has, time and time again, proved his chops as a producer in both in his recorded material as well as live performances. With the exception of a select few who actually know the producer personally, to most of us regular folk he’s the mysterious, masked producer delighting our aural senses with slick beats, tunes and remixes. His music is more than just a selection of carefully selected samples, for Fauxe clearly invests his own feelings into the sounds he crafts in the sanctuary of his bedroom studio.
I finally got down to checking out his two latest tracks, ‘Night Ride’ and ‘Hold Me’. On first listen both tracks seem to have different vibes about them, but it soon becomes clear that the moods presented aren’t entirely dissimilar.
‘Hold Me’ in particular, quickly became a personal favourite. A heart-wrenching string sample added the right amount of emotional drama to the track’s ambient soundscape, and a slightly disconcerted drum machine rhythm brought about the right measure of uncertainty needed to accentuate the track’s innate vulnerability.
Stream and download both ‘Hold Me’ and ‘Night Ride’ via Fauxe’s Soundcloud page.
