Chicago based musician Ben McFadden has been releasing music as “McFabulous” since he first learned how to burn discs on his parents’ desktop PC. From his early bootleg releases of remixes and instrumental beats, the project has evolved into a one-man synth-pop/R&B amusement park act. McFadden’s songs sound like leftover Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis material that’s been given a Max Tundra remix treatment.
