His debut release was courtesy of UK label Black Vinyl (2002), the inspirational ‘Never Felt So Fly’ captured many peoples hearts, bringing together the warming soulful tones of fellow Swede Melo, with the sweet musicianship & guile that Rasmus is so well known for to incorporate into his sound.
After two original releases on US label Sub-Urban and remixes for, among others, E-Smoove and Kenny Bobien, people were starting to show this young swede some serious attention. He was hunted down by Defected chief Simon Dunmore to remix a forthcoming Dubtribe Sound System release.
Simon was so pleased with the work Rasmus delivered he quickly snapped up this unquestionable talent offering a management & label deal – Farplane Records was born. Soon after he got to rework Junior Jack’s monster hit ‘E-Samba’. Recording new vocals & completely reinventing the original, Rasmus´ remix went on to be played throughout the summer by the likes of Morillo, Tappert, Sanchez & Morales.
Released in 2003, ‘Ever After’ was Farplane Records’ debut release, and went on to become a major hit and a timeless classic. This took Rasmus Faber’s career to a new level, and after a faultless line of equally successful releases (such as ‘Divided/United’ and the Axwell remixed ‘Get Over Here’), his name was fully established as a major player, his production trademark being combining dancefloor friendliness and flawless musical quality.
Recent years Rasmus have been as busy as ever, flying around the world performing doing live shows, and DJ-ing in his own unique style, playing the piano over his DJ sets. He has had global sucess with his music, in Japan even crossing over heavily into the commercial public, with chart topping albums and singles releases. New musical adventures are in sight, both exploring the musical fields completely outside of the dance scene, as well as going deeper into the more big room sounds of house, releasing harder and more electronic tracks and remixes under the RaFa moniker.
Rasmus remains highly active in the studio, being asked to work with labels including Defected, King St, Salted, Code Red, Seasons, Shifted Music, Soulfuric, Knee Deep, Soundmen on Wax & Nero Records, while Farplane Records continue to grow as an outlet for quality house music. His endless talents & ambitious attitude have taken him across the globe. Completing remixes for such artists as Miguel Migs, Jay-J, Axwell, Sandy Rivera, Oreja, and Reel People only cement the fact that this talented Swede, still only in his late 20’s, is in high demand, and at the peak of his game!
