Album Notes

Going by the absence of levity in the way he presents himself and his work, Archie Fairhurst evidently has an angle on appropriation that is less crass than that of countless European dance music producers (the misleadingly named Amsterdam duo Detroit Swindle, for two). Through his 2012 and 2013 EPs for Black Acre, Fairhurst dodged scrutiny with vital, sample-laced juke- and house-inspired productions admired by BBC DJs Gilles Peterson and Benji B, among others. Projections, Fairhurst's first album, designed more for home listening than for dancefloors, often sounds more like a project than a form of expression. The album's best tracks, "Prison Blues" and "Roots," when heard from a certain distance, could be mistaken for the work of Theo Parrish and Moodymann. ~ Andy Kellman
