Few artists have captured our attention like Fakear. His unique sound music is nothing short of a sonic dream. Recently, the French phenom released his beautiful new album, Everything Will Grow Again, and it is packed head to toe with bouncing bass lines, effervescent synths, and free-flowing eastern themes.
We’ve gotten a glimpse of the album previously, with the mystical “Carrie” and the cosmic “Tadlo” giving us tasty samples to tide us over till the rest of the album released. Now, the project is out in full, and if you haven’t listened to it yet, you are seriously missing out. With eleven tracks of bliss including the driving energetic “Sekoia,” the enchantingly wavy “Rituals,” and the native groover “Tokai,” this new project offers such a complete and fulfilling listening experience.
We were able to catch up with Fakear and have a conversation about the release, and what else is going on in his life currently. Check out our interview with Fakear below, as well as the stream for his new album. Enjoy!

Based on your Remedy playlist, you listen to a lot of house/techno. What’s your favorite thing about that style of music?
If you could play a set anywhere in the world with no restriction, where would it be?
I guess in some dark basement with a bunch of people and good beers. Or on the top of a mountain with some birds and goats. I like extremes.
Someone passes you the aux at a house party. It’s 2:00am and things are starting to die down. What do you play?
