House, Techno | Fairchild’s “Titan” EP Most On Point Akrade Release This Year Thus Far

Posted by on March 5, 2017

Fairchild burst onto the scene two years ago with his hit single “I Just Want You” that almost broke the million play mark on Soundcloud. Having been producing for quite a while now FairChild gives us a two track EP with songs “Titan” and “Remnant.” The eerie house beats are the perfect combination of dark and progressive grooves that make for stellar club tracks. It’s tough to find artists that truly put their emotions into the music and with these two releases FairChild did just that.

Music can elicit all kinds of emotions. In Fairchild’s case, icy soundscapes bristling with trance synths and house rhythms evoke feelings of both unease and euphoria often within the same space. It’s this sort of cinematic unpredictability that defines the classically trained anonymous producer who’s bringing a film score sensibility to the dance floor. Releasing two new tracks for Arkade Records, “Titan” & “Remnants” and both in the seven-minute range, he sets a journey in motion propelled by sonic futurism and timeless musical architecture. A man of few words and a distant obscured binary image, he’s just started the Progressions Mix series on Soundcloud & recently released the Evergreen EP via NuIdeals. Listeners can take a step deeper into his world with “Titan” & “Remnants” now.
