For those who missed Halls’ debut EP at the end of last year: rejoice. You’ve now got a chance to go back and listen to one of the most affecting and effective releases that 2011 had to offer, one of the few producers about with the talent and subtle nuances to produce something mildly downbeat and electronic without it being in overshadowed by either Fourtet or Burial. The new video for Fade to White is simply another excuse to get excited about it and the clip – frighteningly, given the content of the track itself – manages to live up to expectations, all bright eyed HD enthusiasm and intrigue.
Manchester will luckily be playing host to Halls for the first time this Friday (March 9th), as the evergreen Work Them teams up with Grey Lantern for another one of those unmissables. They’ve even put together a mix for the even, special like. Tuck in:
£4 adv. / Kraak Gallery. Don’t miss it.
