Jacob Fairley Cossack

Jacob Fairley (aka Lotus) is a superb DJ who is known to play alongside Adam Marshall, making them partners in delivering first-rate house and tech house to the most discriminating club connoisseur. The debut release from Jacob Fairley, the Cossack EP, on Dumb Unit Recordings, is a four-track EP that resonates with the influences of Mathew Herbert's abstract quirkiness. Among the more exceptional untitled tracks on this EP is track two, which has a distinctly dubby Force Inc. feel that would work well in a kinetic rump-shaking minimal house set. The EP has whetted my appetite for more music by this promising producer. (Dumb Unit)
