A meeting of two very talented minds provides the backdrop to the duo known as Faul & Wad. Over the last four years they have enjoyed individual success, combining their skills in 2012 to form a potent creative partnership that has resulted in their musical prowess being employed by Mercedes, Lykke Li and Galantis playing high-profile events like TomorrowWorld (Atlanta), Pukkelpop (Belgium), Solidays (Paris), Kaballah Festival (Brasil) and Nature One (Germany). The Frenchmen are just getting started, with youth on their side and a desire to continue pushing their limits, reaching for the highest heights and making the very best music for people to dance to, the story is only just beginning…
Faul fell in love with music when he was eight years old, taking piano lessons, which gave him a firm grounding in composition and understanding the universal power of frequency. Meanwhile, Wad learned violin at the age of 10, again, this was a key moment in his life, when an appreciation for rhythm and melody entered his subconscious, staying with him until this very day.
The two men continued to follow music throughout their formative years, and they became best friends at high school. They spent all their spare time exchanging ideas and philosophies about music, listening to favourites, introducing each other to new artists and building the foundation for their dynamic production partnership. Inspired by the French touch pioneers; Ed Banger, Justice and house kings such as Fred Falke and Alan Braxe, Faul & Wad started to make music of their own.
Faul’s turning point came when his track ‘Happy Endings’ was released online and notched up more than 10 million views on YouTube, an incredible feat for an independent French artist.
