Nathan Fake – Providence (2xLP)


Artist: Nathan Fake
Format: 2xLP
Label: Ninja Tune
SKU: ZEN240LP Category:


Nathan Fake will release his fourth album Providence – his most personal and profoundly emotional work to date – via Ninja Tune on 10th March 2017. Crafted in the wake of a crippling two year spell of creative stagnation during which he was unable to compose any music at all, the esteemed British producer describes the record as a massive step up both in my career and in my life in general it felt like Id come alive again. Providence also sees the British producer collaborate with vocalists for the first time, with none other than Prurient (aka Vatican Shadow / founder of Hospital Productions) and Raphaelle from Braids. Both arose from chance meetings in Geneva and Osaka as their tour schedules crossed. Emerging from this extended period of creative stagnation with renewed vigour and lust for life, Providence was recorded during the first six months of 2016 in Nathans home studio / living room. The meaning behind the title is two-pronged: on the one hand its a nod to the aforementioned Korg Prophecy synth that features so heavily on the record. But on a deeper level it means guidance or divine guidance – not necessarily in a religious sense but more to be guided by a higher power – or more specifically to Nathan, music as therapy and a path out of a dark period in his life.
