Luke Fair delivers a housey mix on the latest installment in the Balance series.
Fair first emerged as a producer in the early noughties, handing in big remixes for Max Graham and Satoshi Tomiie before later popping up on John Digweed's Bedrock label with one of 2005's biggest progressive cuts 'Ultraviolet' .
Next month Fair adds to his previous mix volumes on Yoshitoshi and Bedrock with a housey double-CD in the Balance series that includes cuts by artists such as Francois K, Tiger Stripes, Charles Webster, Timewriter, 16 Bit Lolitas and Tom Novy. A glance at the tracklist and it looks like Luke Fair will be spinning the housier end of progressive with a dash of electro thrown in for good measure.
