Fanu

Real Name:
Janne Hatula
Profile:
A bass music producer, hip hop beatmaker, and an audio engineer.

"Fanu has ever stuck by his long standing passion for erratic and evolving rhythms since his first forays into drum n bass in the early 2000s. From his energetic breakbeat workouts in stand out drum n bass tracks such as the critically acclaimed Siren Song, through his crunchy hip hop productions as FatGyver, up to his modern day D&B experiments blending breaks and 808s inspired in part by the fresh influx of new rhythms such as footwork, his productions exude funk, a veritable mishmash of styles that have always stayed true to style and shied far away from standardisation." (words by Lorna Smith of Inflect Bristol)

FatGyver is Fanu's hip hop alter ego paying homage to the 90s US east coast style hip hop.
Fanu is also a mixing and mastering engineer, mostly working with bass music, hip hop, and related styles.
