With the second cut of ‘Close Your Mind’, Fairmont ups the tempo of the track, takes us to a pace closer to the dance floor, more to enjoy flying in the center of the dance floor, throwing more light and optimism, bright melodies that illuminate the dancefloor, again Jake singing the song, and a remarkable progression and development, synthesizers with reverbs, electronic beats, a delight of track.
And finally, with ‘Neolith’ Fairmont redisplays a cut with a slow tempo, more rhythmic and hypnotic, dynamic progression, with synthesizers that describe those melodies which are directly addressed to our minds, to grab them and join us for a new trip, a new flight, with a more ethnic touches and mysterious voices, magical track.
