FarragoL, formerly known as Luviia., is an up and coming beatmaker/collage maker out of Taiwan. instrumental production can be classified as soulful hip hop, filled with groovy, organic vibes. The sounds of 70's and 80's jazz/soul/funk music heavily influence his instrumentals.

Boiler Room says...

Based out of Tainan, a city in southern Taiwan, FarragoL writes soulful, grooved out hip hop instrumentals. This isn't his first time on Boiler Room either—FarragoL made an appearance on Sofie's MAILOUT 001 mix under his previous Luviia. moniker with Rainybar. When asked about the recent name change, he said, "I hope this name could fit my sound works better."

FarragoL was originally tapped to play our first Boiler Room session in Taipei a couple weeks back, but due to last minute timing and venue shifts, he ended up not being able to make the show. But it's not all bad, as we're now blessed with just under an hour of gorgeously flipped samples, lo-fi textured goodness, from FarragoL and his friends across the globe.

With releases on Inner Ocean Records, Darker Than Wax, Modal Aspiration Records, FarragoL is just getting started.
