An artist of considerable range, Chet Faker - the name taken by Melbourne-raised, Brooklyn-based Nick Murphy - writes, performs and records all of his own music, giving it a warm, homespun feel that also sounds like one of the world•s sultriest bands cranking at full steam. His critically acclaimed debut album Built On Glass was released on Downtown/Future Classic in the spring of 2014.
After being named to a number of "Best of 2014" lists including NPR Music's "Favorite Songs" ("1998"), Entertainment Weekly's "Best Videos" ("Gold") and Yahoo! Music's "Best New Artists," Faker kicked off 2015 by performing his hit single "Gold" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and will perform on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! Outdoor Stage this April. His popularity in the U.S. was cemented when he sold out his spring 2015 headline tour in a few short days. The dates include several nights at New York City's Terminal 5 and a headline show at Los Angeles' Club Nokia, taking place between his two Coachella weekend performances.
The singer / producer also continues his rise across the globe. Faker recently received five ARIAAwards in his native Australia including Best Male Artist, Producer of the Year and Best Independent Album. He also took the #1 spot on the Triple J Hottest 100 (Australia), and the critics from The Guardian (UK) named him one of their "artists to watch" in 2015, among other accolades.
In 2015, Chet Faker recorded a collaborative 4-track EP with Marcus Marr. Titled Work, the EP was released on 4 December via Faker's own label, Detail Records. The EP features 'Birthday Card' (Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 first play, #1 Hype Machine, #6 triple j Hottest 100). 'Learning For Your Love' (Beats1 first play), 'The Trouble With Us' (#1 Hype Machine) and 'Killing Jar'.
Chet Faker's follow up album will be released in 2016.Kaytranada
Born in Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, Canadian artist Kaytranada has experienced an explosive rise in the past couple of years with his irresistible production and live sets, but the hard work and success did not happen over night. Before touring the globe and amassing millions of hits online with his series of beloved tracks and mixes, the young man came up as a true disciple, absorbing hip hop and RnB culture since his childhood and finding ways to make the music his own.
Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and the following year when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. As he explains, "after he showed me the basics, from that day on I couldn't stop making beats," pumping out a beat a day for the next couple of years and soon after self-releasing a series of EPs and beat tapes that quickly began to expand his reach. Official releases on HW&W and Jakarta Records soon spread his name like wildfire and some instant-classic remixes by the likes of Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson,TLC, Danny Brown and others have cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla's, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines.
In the past year, he was approached by Brodinski to drop the single 'Free Things In Life' on the hotly-tipped French label Bromance, has headlined tours in Europe, Australia and North America, and released his newest single and video 'At All' which has already conquered dance floors worldwide and introduced his face to the world with an unforgettable video. Now, as he continues to bridge the gap between the dance world and hip hop/RnB, he is prepping a solo album for 2014 and a series of high profile collaborations that will confirm his position as one of the most important producers in today's musical landscape.
