Alan Walker

Who knows Faded? Yes, it is Alan Walker’s song. Because this song, he became a famous DJ. How was his carier to be a famous DJ? A true post-millennial child, Walker grew up surrounded by technology and became fascinated by computers. In 2012, he inspired by EDM producers K-391 and Ahrix, whom he’d discovered on YouTube, and film composers Steve Jablonsky and Hans Zimmer, he began to create his own music on his laptop. Working in the genre of “drumstep,” a kind of slowed-down drum’n’bass, he eventually uploaded the instrumental track “Fade,” which was soon picked up and re-released via the No Copyright Sounds (NCS) YouTube channel and free net label that promoted the two aforementioned EDM artists. “Fade” was a huge success, eventually garnering a staggering 65 million hits, and was followed by two more equally cinematic (if somewhat less popular) songs, “Spectre” and “Force.”
