Debut EP released on limited 12″ vinyl and digitally on June 29th

Favela ~ “I wanted the video to describe a juxtaposition between future and past, and what satisfies and what doesn’t. I think the setting nicely translated this concept of something that satisfies but doesn’t last.”

As 2014 drew to a close, Leeds-based producer Favela uploaded his track ‘Gong’ to SoundCloud and sent it over to the crew at Majestic Casual. 2,000,000 plays later – and with his University dissertation just handed in – he’s now set to release his debut EP on Transgressive Records imprint paradYse.

To date ‘Future Visions’ has already amassed over 120,000 plays on SoundCloud and received support from the likes of Noisy, Hilly Dilly, DIY and Best Fit.  It wasn’t just the online world that was showing the love as the track picked up half a dozen plays across BBC Radio 1 and and incredible 128 plays on Amazing Radio!

An impressive start for a truly exciting, and refreshing new artist. Favela’s is a vast, ethereal world full of delicate, soaring moments at once intimate yet always pulsing with the feeling of something unknown. Growing up playing classical music had a clear effect on the producer. The compositions constructed throughout the EP, coupled with a love for the likes of Bon Iver and The National as well as producers Jamie xx and Mount Kimbie, Favela arrives with a truly inspired sound.
