Rising Leeds producer Favela has deftly developed a voice of his own. Highly individual, his hazy sound fuses electronic fractals into a yearning sense of emotion that falls from each melody line. Favela’s is a world full of intimacy, yet always pulsing with the feeling of something unknown. A sound that combines the patient structures of singer-songwriters like Bon Iver with the more immediate production sensibilities of Jamie xx or Mount Kimbie.
His debut Future Visions EP racked up millions of plays on SoundCloud and YouTube, with the title track reaching the Spotify UK Top 10. Upon finishing university, singer-producer Favela returned with the equally powerful English Letters EP, now in heavy rotation by tastemaker DJs on BBC Radio 1.
