We’ve made no secret of our love for Pablo Nouvelle, aka Fabio Friedli. Our first encounter with the Swiss-born producer can be traced back to 2012, when we featured him in our “Introducing” series. At that time, the producer already had an impressive collection of songs, including “You Do Me Wrong” and our ultimate favourite, “Is It Ok (feat. Fiona Daniel).” But while a lot has changed since then, those two songs continue to spin in the back of our minds—and we weren’t the only ones obsessing over them.
Black Butter Records, the same label that boasts a wealth of talented British musicians (Rudimental, Jess Glynne, Sinead Harnett), recently caught wind of Nouvelle‘s talents and quickly snapped him up. He hit the ground running with his label debut, “Poison (feat. Tulliae),” and now he’s done it again!
Alongside ALX, Friedli has whipped up a creamy little soul number entitled, “You Don’t Understand.” With Friedli on the drums and ALX on mic, these two multi-instrumentalists quickly develop a symbiotic relationship that feels distinctly unique and effortless. It’s not often you find music that strikes a balance between passion and tranquility, but when it does happen, you can bet Pablo Nouvelle is involved in one way or another.
“You Don’t Understand” is the title-track of Pablo Nouvelle‘s new EP, which you purchase [here].
