"Fairmont is the alias of Jacob Fairley and stands for his melodic techno soul side as opposed to his radical stripped down minimal techno releases on Dumb Unit, Sender, and Killer. Under Fairmont he has released two 12"s on Traum. Paper Stars features tracks that deliberately have been recorded over the last 12 months for a project that was to introduce Jacobs vocals, guitars sounds, drum machines and synths. With Paper Stars he departs even more from his status as a minimal techno producer, giving credit to his rock roots, which a city such as Toronto is known for. Fairley hums melodies, rocks basslines that sound like 1000 trapped bees ('Last Words') and then dives into a minimal groover ('True North', 'Inside') to end in a folk nurtured "Ignore Me'. Paper Stars tells a story, is spiced with pictures and emotions that allow the listener to rehash a bit of his life. In contrast to his new project, The Uncut, we witness a stronger pop influence drawing for example on Wolfgang Voigt Gas project ('Kinmount') stating a light quality with bits of heaviness. Ten tracks that fly by as if you were sitting on the back seats of a car letting towns and buildings pass by."
