Fjaak is an electronic music trio comprising Felix Wagner, Aaron Röbig and Kevin Kozicki, who grew up together in Berlin and connected with the techno scene in their formative years. They began to put out music in 2009, signing to 50Weapons in 2014, and here they are with their debut album on Monkeytown.
It’s a diverse affair, but there are some quite techy tracks in there. ‘Gewerbe 15’ brings forth Eurotech of the past while phat beats avail in ‘Fast Food’. And the highlight is ‘Fjkslktr’ (featuring label bosses Modeselektor).
Fjaak are big stalwarts of the live electronic music scene and have toured extensively with their live sets. Last year Fjaak let Fact into their Berlin studio for an Against The Clock feature, which resulted in a progressively building techno jam captured on film and released on this LP.
