Fábel and Destiny’s Fables
What we are about to present is a magic carpet ride that travels the space-time continuum.
As we do, let me tell you about the music first: from old psychodelia and movie soundtracks to funk and electronica, it’s all there, but the selection and flow are so smooth it makes time feel like a waterslide, if you ever had that feeling. It’s the kind of session you hardly remove from your IPod selection and if you do, it comes back there after a while.
And the mix has a story that explains its current package: It’s a vinyl only session that was recorded on a cassette tape (hence the 2 parts), then later salvaged as mp3 on a computer, then lost, then found again, delivered to FFO and restored to its original glory. This is why I created a virtual boombox for it, it retains some of the tape feeling and it should come out of a vintage boombox.
Then we have the man to talk about!
This is just the intro for some big news: we’re welcoming aboard the DubKraft/FFO familiy this rare talent known as Fábel.
Fábel is something else! Not enjoying the fame he fully deserves maybe, but those who know him, more than a few, recognise his hugely valuable contribution to Spanish music scene, that is not limited to electronica.
His biography is spectacular actually: “Multi-instrumentalist musician (piano, bass & guitar, percussion, wind instruments, synthesizers…) and composer, his musical trajectory includes collaborations with bands from a variety of scenes, like hardcore, metal, jazz, folk, blues and hip-hop), as well as collabs for theatre, dance and performance events. Nowadays, he produces music covering a wide spectrum of styles, ranging from IDM to Glitch, Jazz, Electronica, Dub, Slo Mo and even Techno, having released on labels like Sinergy Networks (Klitekture branch), Permissive Records, AvantRoots, Redlight Music and Crosstown Rebels.” If you want to read and hear more, don’t hesitate to hit his Soundcloud!
Now just follow these two trajectories: The Music and The Musician. They have independent lives, they meet and part ways at times, but each instance they fully find each other, something grows somewhere, be it only a smile on your face ;)
That’s all I’m saying.
