FAUX – Take Back Time
“Nostalgic, infectious appeal” – Noisey
Take Back Time is the debut single from London collective, FAUX, a collaborative project centred around producer and songwriter, Josef Page.
The first of three singles to drop over the coming months, Take Back Time is a supremely confident debut; a hypnotic, 80s infused jam that demands movement and motion.
It was written by Page with Amber Simone and was mixed by Londoner Prash Mistry who has been on duty for Jorja Smith’s recent releases.
Page has worked with artists including Pixx, Raye, Dua Lipa, and Mullally among others and formed FAUX in the stolen hours between sessions.
“FAUX was something I’d been thinking about for a long time – I’ve been writing behind the scenes for people and I needed an outlet to make music I loved without compromise. It had to be fun, collaborative and not try to be anything but just be that.”
Currently working with MED on Stones Throw (long term Madlib collaborator) and with a Steve Arrington feature in the pipeline, expect more of the blend of early 80s funk and golden era hip hop that is at the heart of the FAUX sound.
The incredible accompanying video was shot in Hackney, London this summer.
