User Bio

I am a musician, songwriter, music producer, media composer, sound designer, DJ, remixer, music collector and all-round music enthusiast.

I have worked in music since I left school at 16. My big break came working as a ‘tape op’ at Beatles producer George Martin’s flagship recording facility AIR Studios in London.

In 2012 I soundtracked Ice T's seminal hip hop documentary and Official Sundance Film Festival Selection "Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap". I compiled and edited the commercial recordings and also composed the original cues for the film.

In 2010 I scored my first full-length feature documentary, "Bodysnatchers Of New York" directed by Toby Dye,
which has since gone on to win a prestigious Grierson award.

My original compositions have been used in worldwide advertising campaigns for Adidas, Toyota, Nokia, Sky, Carlsberg, General Electric, Kellogg's, Johnson's and many others. I’ve written music for TV programmes broadcast on BBC One and Channel 4 and have been nominated for a D&AD Award for my work with directors Tokyo Plastic.

I've worked with artists as diverse as soul singer John Turrell - whose debut solo album I co-wrote and produced - Ivor Novello winning songwriter Alison Clarkson (better known as Betty Boo), Icelandic singer/songwriter Emiliana Torrini and the hilarious Cuban Brothers who were featured on BBC television’s Let’s Dance For Sport Relief. I've remixed chart acts including Kylie Minogue, The Sugababes and Badly Drawn Boy as well as underground guitar bands.

Having started out as a "tape op" at Air Studios where I worked with George Martin, Chris Thomas, Stuart Levine and others, I went on to release material on various indie labels including Marble Bar, React, Pussyfoot, Body Clap, Wall Of Sound, Ultimate Dilemma and XL Recordings offshoot Rex Records.

I pride myself on the originality and high quality of my work; I thrive on collaboration and not only enjoy working with other driven, creative people but usually produce my best work that way.

"A guy to watch out for is Nick Faber. He has such a wide range of sensibilities. He can do something very dance-floor oriented or something much more mellow and deep for home listening but it's always really funky. He's come from being into hip-hop and jazz and funk and combines all these aesthetics into really storming work. There's a buzz round him..." Theo Keating a.k.a. Fake Blood
