    Default Chet Faker

    Anybody else listening to Chet Faker? He's gaining some considerable attention down here in New Zealand/Australia, and wouldn't be surprised to see him to big things. Absolutely stunning debut EP. And even better cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity"

    Heard a remix of MS MR he did on their soundcloud a month or two ago and started listening to him, definitely good stuff.

    Speaking of Australians, Chet Faker's new tune with Flume is pretty great.



    Really hope we get Flume in 2014

    Flume is another one that needs to be on the 2014 bill. That Flume/Chet Faker EP is pretty good. Along with the Flume track Chet Faker featured on awhile back...

    The woman singing is a dear friend of mine. Her brothers are two of my best friends. Grew up with them and I've known her since she was 5 or 6. That's the only reason I knew about FF, but they are super good.

    One of the my most anticipated acts of day 1 at FYF. He has a great live sound. Not many people are doing what he's doing right now (well).
    THIS IS SOME REAL SHIT.

    These comments are all making me happy! Supposed to see him for the first time in October when he comes through NYC. If he was this amazing at FYF I'm hoping he's a shoo-in for Coachella.
