Playlist: FNP

FNP by Jonathan Wilcox

FNP by Jonathan Wilcox

British electronic artist, FNP (“Fake Name Preferably”), likes his dance music fun and nostalgic. His new single, ‘Weeks Of Rain’ is perfect, disco-infused house with lashings of hazy synthwave and retro drums.

Inspired by indietronica, we asked FNP to put together a playlist for us, and here it is below:

Nina – My Mistake
Love a chugging bassline…Actually heard this first on a Mercedes advert and spent a long long time trying to find out what it was! Beauty…

Baynk – Settle
Really lush mix of organic and electronic elements. Sinead Harnett’s vocal just makes it pop as well.

Shura – 2shy
Massive fan of pretty much everything shura does but this is a favourite for me.. Proper summer vibes on this.

SG Lewis – Chemicals
This one is just summer in a bowl – The lyrics are quite clearly about getting off your bonce as well which is bonus points for me.

Breakbot – Be Mine Tonight
Pretty close to a perfect Nu-Disco track this. Can’t fault it in any way. The little synth melodies are so, so lovely.

Lou Hayter – Cherry on Top
Epic use of a classic sample. Really nice work on this, pure beach vibes and her vocal works perfectly on it.

Charlotte Gainsbourg – Sylvia Says
Charlotte Gainsbourg might just about be the coolest most chic person on Earth…Considering she does a lot of acting and other muse stuff, she ain’t bad at music either. Probably takes from her dad on that.

Confidence Man – Out The Window
Could have chosen any confidence man track to be honest but this one is a bit special. Proper screamadelica, uplifting 90’s vibes on show here.

Blood Orange – EVP
For me, the best of many great Dev Hynes productions – Those chords are just sublime, much prefer this album to the newer stuff, so much more funk.

Frances – Borrowed Time
Simple yet effective – The production here is really lush but there’s really not much to it. Love the chord sound contrasting the sharp vocal.

Chromatics – Cherry
An absolute monster of a tune this. Chromatics are absolutely stellar at what they do and for me, this is their best work. That guitar melody is just..

IRAH – Into Dimensions
Really powerful new artist from the Eastern Bloc – Thick, warm analogue synths are the order of the day on this one.

Sounds like: Bronski Beat, Todd Terje, Theo Kottis, Palms Traxx, Joe Goddard
