ERS002 – Timothy J Fairplay – Somebody, SomewhereSeptember 2, 2012
Shortly after Emotional Response was started Timothy’s solo productions came within our orbit and Somebody, Somehwhere was quite literally formed in 24 hours.
Starting with the Carpenter meets Detroit chugger, Aim For The Yellow Sector we get the slice of late night East London encapsulated in 5 odd minutes. With the label’s rhetoric for experimentation to the fore with the following title track mixing his love of 80s new wave with a modern dub aesthetic to create completely different headspace.
For the flip side there is the further exploration of man and machinery in the uplifting groove of Saco Bay before finally finding the post-dub “reversion” that is ‘I Do Not Believe…’ completing an EP that deliberately find a cross section of Timothy’s mind and talents.
