Michael Fakesch used to be one-half of Funkstörung (alongside Chris De Luca). From 1994 until their break-up in 2006, the two electronic wizards have been pioneers in combining weird beats, digital electro-madness and beautiful melodies. Their merciless remixes for Björk and Wu-Tang Clan marked their breakthrough and gained them international fame. After the demise of Funkstörung, Michael Fakesch concentrated on doing sound-designs for commercials (e.g. Toyota, Sony, Vodafone, Kia, Phillips) and even won the Grand Prix 2009 of the Cannes Golden Lions. He has made music for short films, he has reprocessed soundtracks, composed drafts for Hollywood scores, and -- of course -- also done remixes. For the remix compilation Exchange, Michael Fakesch collected all his best remixes and therefore builds on Funkstörung's milestones Additional Productions or Viceversa. Due to the fact that most of these remixes have never been released or have only been available in very limited amounts, this remix compilation can be considered a new Fakesch album. Featuring remixes of the following artists: Mr. Oizo, Booka Shade, Scaffolding, Bomb The Bass, Paul Conboy, Shadowhuntaz, Raz Ohara, Towa Tei, Taprikk Sweezee, Hecq, Von Südenfed, Hexhead, B+, Kidkanevil, Her Bad Habit, Herbert, Jean Jacques Perrey, Notwist, The Broadway Project, and Franz Kirmann.
