London indie dance hero Tim Fairplay returns with an awesome EP on his own Work For Love, the label's sophomore effort that has been only two years in the making. Bold and striking vintage jams bridging the gap between first wave Chicago house, Italo disco and EBM: much like his recent efforts on Rotterdam's Charlois and his other label: Crimes Of The Future which he runs with Scott Fraser. From the spooky and hypnotic jack of "Going Solo" or the menacing midnight mood-lighting of "The Search For Jessica" on the first side, to the the B side highlight that is "Shape Of Rage" awash in analogue pads and vivid modular textures over its dusty drumcomputer rattle. This is definitely one for all the retroverts out there. From his beginnings in the early noughties with London post punk trio Battant (with Chloe Raunet aka CAR) to his known collaborations with local legend Andrew Weatherall and Daniel Avery - Fairplay always delivers.
