With the release of the EP, Sunder (Ninja Tune, 2018), Nathan Fake arrives at year XV of his career with his sound in full form. Implacable techno makes its way between the ethereal and emotional density of ambient and lo-fi that have characterized Fake since “The Sky was Pink”, a 2003 track devoted to DJ sets by James Holden. Fake’s discography is a kaleidoscope, each installment of which shows new forms and nuances in a combination of hard rhythms and dreamy textures. Performances, either live or as a DJ, transform into ceremonies uniting dance fans of Boards of Canada, Seefel, and Fennez with fans of The Field, Squarepusher and the most clinging of techno-heads. Six years after its presentation at MUTEK.MX Edition (2012), an exciting reunion awaits in November, with Fake as part of the Ninja Tune roster after performing one of the most outstanding acts at summer festivals like Dekmantel, Green Man and Roskilde.
