Jake Fairley Touch Not The Cat
- Words: Sean O'Neal
- Label: Paper Bag
Toronto's Jake Fairley is an inexhaustible minimal techno maker and relentless punk rocker at heart. On Touch Not, Fairley pumps out 10 vigorous dancefloor killers-some accompanied by his own gritty Brit-pop vocals. Stepping beyond his singles on Sender and Dumb-Unit, this raw techno grindcore shuffles and drives with mind-numbing abrasiveness. Ultra-distorted synthesizers splice cleanly through your body while mechanical melodies bring out the punk in all of us. Imagine Kompakt's Reinhard Voigt meets The Misfits, get out your best bottle of whiskey and Touch Not The Cat.
