12" + CD
Fair is the first release for Bryce Hackford on new experimental label PRAH Recordings. Against the warehouse-wrecking "Another Fantasy" and luminous synthesizers of "I Want More," are the chiming spirituals of "Heart to Beat" and "Slow Motion." Bryce's atomized formulation of electronica and dance echoes the classic Detroit house of Moodymann and Theo Parrish. Since 2007, Bryce has been making experimental recordings and collaborating with visual artists. One of his first recordings was the 27-minute electric guitar performance "Modern Propeller Music." Constructed with guitar, effects, and tape loops, it gets a re-release here as a bonus track with another long-form soundscape, "Run-On Cirrus."
