Experimental hip-hop and freeform producer Fauxe will be releasing his album Ikhlas on vinyl for the first time as a limited release under The Analog Vault’s newly launched record label, TAV Records.
Having spent the last 6 years of his life in dedication to his craft, Fauxe is one of the few artists in Singapore that continuously pushes the boundaries of music through his experimentation across different musical styles. Pushing the format of freeform music, he has originated multiple musical projects and worked on a myriad of musical collaborations – all of which stem from Fauxe’s humble aspirations to grow as an artist and to musically affect the peoplearound him.
Ikhlas, an album originally released in 2018, is now seeing its release via the vinyl format. Ikhlas is an exploration of the Kuala Lumpur music scene told with samples from traditional Malaysian music. Inspired by an eight month visit to Malaysia, this 30-minute album is a true modern ode to the sonic legacy of the country. Ikhlas covers a wide range of styles through the roots of hip hop, disco and the use of breakbeat inspired textures. A recontextualized project, the album highlights Fauxe’s ability to take music from the past and interpret it with his own flair and individuality to create something truly original.
