Review: Canadian minimal/tech house legend Fairmont is back with the Obsidian EP. As always it's sleek and slinky tech house on the darker and mysterious tip, particularly with the title track with its dark and wonky synths, razor sharp bassline and sombre atmosphere all working in perfect aesthetic harmony. The remix of it by Heretic is much funkier, energetic and uplifting: a high octane groove that's just perfect to transition in to the peak time. Second original track "Onyx" is very epic: after the massive drop there's some killer synth riffs, emotive strings and a tight rhythm that shows us that this is how you make a dark journey track! It's guaranteed for dance-floor mayhem. Finally its a remix by Samuel Berdah which strips things back a lot, creating a much more sombre atmosphere and throws one seriously mesmerising melody over the top which does most of the work and rather well.
