Many dj who play house music will probably tell you this , « yes i have almost one record of Dj Fudge in my case »
Barcelona-based French producer Fudge is a brilliant musician and DJ on his own right, always delivering, wether as a solo artist or in the bands he was a part of.
He and his school buddy Bruno Banner founded his first two-men band, Savannah, around 1995.
They released a moderately succesful auto-produced first EP "Rumeurs", who luckily found the support of Laurent Garnier, and so made a little underground impact.
As the success was still to come, they got convinced by the Paris-based Kif Music to sign as artists under a new moniker, Trouble Men, They reached the underground fame they where expecting for a long time as soon as their first EP "Do It" was released in 1999.
The "French Touch" was now hitting the clubs worldwide and Fudge career really took off, Djing abroad, getting residencies in Paris Queen, Concorde, Wagg, a weekly radio show Paris' Radio FG and still releasing succesfull records and remixes as Trouble Men.It's a natural move for an artist to want to go solo at some point, and in 2002, Fudge started releasing music under his own name and started thinking of setting up his own label. He was still collaborating with his partner Bruno Banner, playing keyboards with the newly founded "Savannah House Band", a six-pieces band, and even formed the shortly lived but highly acclaimed "Afromento" project with percussionnist Hedi ben Romdan.
When he moved to Barcelona in 2006, he finally created "Tejal", his own
