Fabrikate are Francis and Chuck — two guys with similar tastes and interests digging into the past to uncover some long lost musical wisdom.
Their devotion to this quest grants them laser focus, working like madmen to create bumping, neon-flecked sonic landscapes for their listeners to wander through, from the slick, sultry grooves of their 2016 LP Bodies, right up to latest disco/hybrid album Made Me Feel. Historically, both Francis and Chuck have their own personal tie to the disco era and the forgotten magic left with it. They grew up listening to celestial funk throughout their childhoods in Montreal, an island with deep disco roots of its own. With their new work, Fabrikate take the spirit of disco and filter it through house music. Francis and Chuck both grew up immersed in disco in their own ways, and the music and the culture of that era has always been a deep influence on their own productions. Disco culture was very inclusive and non-judgemental: it was always about the vibes and the experience, and with Fabrikate they’re creating their own interpretation of what disco music means today. Across 12 unique tracks, Made Me Feel blends both house music and disco influences into a sound that while heavily influenced by the sounds of the past, also manages to remain rooted in modern-day dancefloors, and takes inspiration from the US, Europe and of course their native Canada.
