Fairlight (Single)

Fairlight by Com Truise
Released: May 2011
Label: Ghostly International
Preceding his debut album on Ghostly, New Jersey synth freak Com Truise drops an EP titled in homage to the Fairlight, a digital synthesizer that played a huge role in the glossy sound of '80s pop. Similar to his debut EP, Cyanide Sisters, it brings together lurching electro-funk beats with glassy, detuned keys, shuddering and warbling like an overheated car stereo. No wonder he was tapped to remix Daft Punk's Tron: Legacy soundtrack; somewhere between Boards of Canada, Dam-Funk and Oneohtrix Point Never, it's music for a fantasy future-past, garlanded with unspooled VHS tapes.
