ZOO - Usine

Flagship of the Border Community label, Nathan Fake is one of those dream-makers, who can make us travel charting the stars and rises our heart with the magical melancholy that emerges from his melodic lines. Producer with a unique touch, the British artist has undoubtedly helped change the musical colour of our world with sublime tracks, essential classics of this early millennium.

Young prodigy born in Norfolk, England, Nathan Fake is only 21 when he revealed his talent to the world through the title Outhouse (2003) on Border Community, label of another genius of the genre, James Holden. Consecration arrives one year later, with the worldwide hit The Sky Was Pink, which takes everybody far beyond the sky dome. His ethereal, whimsical, groovy and melancholic style revolutionizes the music of that time and refreshes IDM in a post rock electro format with psyche tendencies. In the tradition of artists such as Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada or M83, he releases no less than three albums, Drowning in the Sea of Love (2006), Hard Islands (2009) and Steam Days (2012), and appears on numerous compilations. In 2014, he moves to the next level and launches, with his friend and producer Wesley Matsell, the label Cambria Instruments, inspired by Nathan Fake’s obsession for the history of England, Cambia being an ancient Latin name for Wales… This should help to keep the audience in a state of weightlessness.
The melodic flights and delicate harmonies of Nathan Fake should find a particular resonance in a Zoo that has been optimized with a quadriphonic system. Musical journey guaranteed!
