Len Faki has released music on record labels ranging from Drumcode to Ostgut Ton.
Berlin-based, renowned techno artist Len Faki has announced the release of his next 4 track EP ‘Fusion EP 01/03’ and last week on his record label Figure he released a single from it titled ‘Don’t Be Stupid Day’.
Len Faki is a highly influential techno artist who has been releasing music since the late ’90’s, and during his career he has dropped many influential tracks and remixes on record labels such as Ostgut Ton, Rekids, Drumcode and Soma. He also heads up the iconic imprint Figure which has not only become a home for his own music but has been influential in the careers of other artists ranging from Charlotte de Witte to Setaoc Mass.
Layered with intricate sonics and centred around the namesake vocal, ‘Don’t Be Stupid Day’ is a deep, slow-burning techno roller. The single is a powerful introduction to a significant project that will land later this year and plays into the artists’ eclectic approach to electronic music.
The following EP tracks, ‘Hymn (In The Name of Fantasy)’ contrasts a dreamy, wisp-like melody with heavy punches of broken up bass. ‘Hymn (In The Name Of Freedom)’ borrows on the trancey lead synths and booming bass from those early days, making for an unusually euphoric and uplifting Faki track. Finally, ‘Tempel’ aligns with his reputation as a DJ, steadily layering mechanic percussion for an ever-increasing sense of rhythmic urgency.
