The electro/indie music maker’s career is only beginning and although it may sound like a cliche, his music really does have something new to offer. A debut album has just been finished and fresh new tracks will soon be published on the Internet. I for one can’t wait to hear the album as if it maintains the quality of what I’ve heard so far, our ears are in for one hell of a treat.

According to the man himself, Mr Fogg’s music sounds like “One man living in the woods with only a computer for entertainment.” When you hear his tunes you get an idea of what he means but the gentle and easy listening electro pop is to be savoured. Whilst synth melodies give a dirty sound, pitch perfect vocals and gentle jingles help make every Mr Fogg listen a great experience.

The BBC’s Radio 1 and Radio 6 had many compliments for the mysterious man and there are two tunes that certainly live up to the hype. “Moving Parts” is a superdooper easy listening masterpiece that can sooth to the core. Its radio friendly tone and simple layout makes it an awesome tune. Meanwhile “Keep Your Teeth Sharp” has a bit more flare and could be stuck on in any mood or time of day and would please. I’m not going to kid myself. Mr Fogg’s music is hard to imagine at the top of the charts but he sounds like one of those Glastonbury artists who you’ve never heard of and only impress every time you hear them.
