Real Name:
Janne Hatula
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)
