The influential British producer behind Border Community returns for a headline slot at dollop's next party
Tonight, mega-promoters Dollop are bringing their upstanding eclectic line ups to Heaven in central London for a mid-week blow out. Nathan Fake is heading up the line up a much loved and unique artist belonging to James Holden’s Border Community family. Nathan’s melodic yet banging techno also takes influence from the broken beats of IDM forging live sets that move people’s souls as well as their feet. Joining him on the line up are recent break through analogue psychotics Factory Floor, Japanese post-rockers Bo Ningen, and Numbers resident Jackmaster will be backed up by Rough Trade and Dollop DJs.

DD: What would be your dream place to live?

DD: What’s been your favourite experience travelling as a DJ/artist?
Nathan Fake: Recently it was the mini UK tour I just did with James Holden, Four Tet, Caribou and Rocketnumbernine, all of us in a flashy tour bus sleeping in little bunk beds between shows. Other times - I think getting called a "fucking asshole" (in an American accent) by a mad Italian "fan" for not playing a particular song in my live set in Rome a couple of years ago.
DD: Where do you want to go that you’ve never been?
