Growing up on his dad's chillout compilations along with vocal albums from the jazz great Chet Baker, Australian electronica artist Nick Murphy combined the two and took the name Chet Faker when he launched his career with a downtempo cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity." Looking to avoid any confusion with the Australian singer of the same name, Murphy dubbed himself Chet Faker when he made "No Diggity" his first upload to the Internet in 2011. After the song became a viral hit, Faker released his debut EP, Thinking in Textures, on the Opulent label in 2012. A year later he partnered with fellow Aussie Flume on the Lockjaw EP released on Future Classic, while 2014 saw the release of the slow and serene Built on Glass, his debut album for Downtown Records.
