Fono Feat. Anna Straker – Everybody Knows (Original Mix)

Once in a while an artist appears out of nowhere and cements themselves¬†impressively high in the food chain. This was the exact plan of action for UK prospect Fono, the Brighton-based producer who entered the radar with remix duties for Joey Bada$$ and Major Lazer and has since maintained an impressive upward spiral. Picking up where Relentless¬†debut ‘Real Joy’¬†earlier in the year, his latest original alongside rising vocal talent Anna Straker continues a weird and wonderful spike in the eccentric indie dance talent’s musical repertoire.

‘Everybody Knows’ is a far calmer and collected take on the signature Fono sound. It still sweeps and subtly grooves in all the right places, but takes the form of something of a glitchy electronic ballad with a modern soul twist and less obvious club teeth. You’re going to struggle to find a more convincing balance of pop panache and left-of-field electronic conviction outside of the likes of Disclosure, but Fono’s far less hackneyed approach has him pegged as an essential up-and-comer where the UK front is concerned.

Release Date: November 2
