WHO: Fanu, real name Janne Hatula, who is a drum 'n' bass DJ/ producer from Finland with a huge passion for breakbeats and syncopated rhythms. Fanu also runs a small label called Lightless Recordings. WHY: Fanu is very much the producer of choice for connoisseurs of d'n'b. His drum patterns are insane and his melodies often verge on the spiritual. As a DJ he excels but it's his live show that really distinguises him from the herd - a masterclass in using Ableton to its full potential with more drum breaks than you can shake a glowstick at. Fanu's work has featured on the Amon Tobin box set and the 'Breakbeat Brew EP' on Lightless is out December. 01. Fanu - Perky Percolator Jam (Lightless; http://fanu.bandcamp.com/). 02.
