We’ve been keeping tabs on electronic producer FNP for a while now. He recently shared his acid-heavy, thunderous EP “Suburban Turbulence” to critical appraisal. Support came from Electronic Groove, Datatransmission, Dummy Magazine and The Classy Issue. Spotify even got behind the first track on their influential Techno State playlist.
For this one, he’s paired up with long-time collaborators OJ & Fridel for a remix of Riah Knight’s ‘I Will Roam’. The original, was an off-kilter piece of pop with a politically charged message, but FNP has took this one to a different dimension. One to hit well with fans of Four Tet, it’s got a nuanced organic groove with plenty of percussion samples. The track is built from a number of electronic harmonies building to an epic crescendo
I’ve known OJ & Fridel and the Sonicrew guys for a number of years now and they’re some of the best producers in London.. I was automatically on board when they asked me to remix their new single. The vocal was already so clean and anthemic it was just a case of finding some warm synth sounds to layer underneath. It’s an almost entirely analogue production”
