"Blair French, musically known as Dial.81, is a producer, emcee, and visual artist based in Metro Detroit, Michigan. Most recently, French has scored the 2012 documentary, Detropia, which won awards at multiple film festivals including Sundance. French's score is suitably haunting; either as a stand-alone piece of work or when heard during the movie, the music is simultaneously haunting and beautiful, much like the city of Detroit itself. French manages to create an atmosphere of claustrophobia and intense industrial dilapidation, but doesn't allow the listener to wallow in desperation and misery. Like the film, the score offers hope. In support of the movie, UHF Records (based in Royal Oak, Michigan) will be releasing the soundtrack on vinyl, with ten selected songs re-worked for an international release. It was important to Dial.81 and UHF to keep the record Michigan-based, with the music being produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered in Detroit and the surrounding area, and pressed in Detroit at the historic Archer Pressing plant." Edition of 500 copies; includes download code.
