Fakear is Theo Le Vigoreux – an uncannily suitable name for a young producer whose energy is seemingly limitless. Fakear has already taken his globally-tuned dance music across the world, playing shows from London to Tokyo, supporting Bonobo and selling out Paris’ prestigious Olympia in 2015.
The journey that’s led to 2016 and his debut album, Animal, has been three years and 4 EPs long. One of them reached the top 10 in France, and his music has drawn the attention of artists and tastemakers alike, from Annie Mac and The FADER, to ODESZA and Years & Years – two of many peers who’ve asked Fakear for remixes. Fakear has also produced a track on M.I.A.’s latest and hotly anticipated album AIM.
In the studio as on the boards, Fakear’s music is lively, incarnated and instinctive. Definitively Animal.
