"Paper Stars" is the kind of early 2000s electronic music made by humble guys in their bedrooms, teaming up with their PCs to pay tributes to poetry. It's slightly clicky, quite mechanical and repetitive, with a fragile and tiny/micro sound. This shy, simple, sometimes a bit clumsy but authentic mood is really a gem for me. I miss this lo-fi sounding electronica which ages so well.. If you like the "romantic" vibes à la Dial and Kompakt, "Paper Stars" is made for you. A soft, dreamy, discreet and charming creation.

Here, under his Alias Fairmont, Jake Fairley takes a ride to his contemplative side releasing this record on TRAUM ...
Used to his rocking, straight forward, driving bass lines and his dark-dance Tech-House (SENDER or DUMB-UNIT), I was surprised listening to this really beautiful album: Less to almost no bass, but stark and dark, repeating sound-planes (Minimal Techno) are the essences that leave you in a melancholic and thoughtful mood - Sit back, relax and ponder upon ... THX Jake !!!
