Listen to "DEGREELESSNESS," the first tune from a 12-inch that precedes the upcoming LP.
The UK producer, who was formerly aligned with Border Community, will first put out a 12-inch called DEGREELESSNESS on December 2nd. The title track is a collaboration with Prurient, real name Dominick Fernow. "Although our music probably seems pretty different from each other's on the surface, I felt there was a strong link from a rhythmic and melodic standpoint, and I admired Dominick's vocal performances in his Prurient material, which were both charismatic and masculine but not tiresomely so," says Fake.
He adds: "'DEGREELESSNESS' started off as a 16-bar loop jam which I'd adapted from an existing melodic composition, building rhythms around it with his voice in mind. Dominick delivered a spoken-word vocal piece inspired by the track, the lyrical content of which is heavily obscured in the final piece, purposefully so, the whole piece becoming lost in its own echoes, with the human voice emanating from the gaps in between."
DEGREELESSNESS will be followed by a full Nathan Fake album for Ninja Tune, though details on that are yet to be revealed.
