Hometown: Bern, Switzerland.
The lineup: Fabio Friedli (sampling, production).
The background: Fabio Friedli is a former architecture student turned film-maker and musician, who makes songs from a combination of new sounds and old samples. He works under the name Pablo Nouvelle, out of a love of the French cinematic nouvelle vague of the late 1950s and early 1960s. All his interests are brought to bear on the song and accompanying video to Is It OK? his first single, from earlier this year. It has the feel of one of those stylish and existentially vague French movies starring Jean Seberg, although we can't quite recall whether the actor went to the bathroom in broad daylight in A Bout De Souffle, as the female protagonist does here at 2'01".
