Jake Fairley has had quite an output with long players this year, but it seems that the best has been saved for the label with which he's had his most recognisable track to date, James Holden's Border Community. Its now three LPs into Border Community's life and they keep getting better.

Gazebo doesn't feature on this album but everything that is present is absolute electronic bliss. Little shades of Boc-esque synths without falling into Nathan Fake's trap of homage-athon. Trademark Border Community beats and sounds with electronics panning around your head and percussion falling in and out of time yet not totally alienating the listener with patterns that upset your internal metronome.

Compared to the other Fairmont LPs of this year, Coloured In Memory is much more of a pleasure to slip inside. 'Head in the heavens' moments like the robot techno peaking to glorious synths of Mobula, electronic low key vocal tracks Fade To Saturate and I Need Medicine bring a bit of variety, as does the odd BoC style vignette from the likes of Pomegranate. Plus its nice to see a 3/4 house number in the form of Darling Waltz that thankfully doesn't come across sounding like you'd expect to suddenly hear "....in the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight" float over the top of it.

I've listened once, loved, left it for a bit, come back to it and still loved. The sign of something great and a rareity in house albums. One to check.

weird - kind of dull and flat but i keep hankering to hear it and often have to play it. sort of works emotionally as much or more than musically

A great album! 7 Dec 2007
By gislefar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent album with electronica that suits just as well for the dancefloor as it does on your headset for your sundays walk. A very "complete" album that integrates up-beat psychedelic mind-funk, with ambience as well as melancholic, analogue elements with indie-references, in a very successful musical journey. The sound is heavy, compact and precise, yet opens up vast, airy soundscapes. A must for everybody with some interest in the developments at the electronic frontier!
Fairmont - Coloured In Memory 11 May 2012
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com

As the chords that start off Fairmont's COLOURED IN MEMORY merge into a phased set of vocals, you know what you're in for: a unique mix of shoegazer techniques with modern tech-house. "Darling's Waltz" is thick with the layers, even as the high-pitched ringing tones pierce through. "Pomegranate" goes for a more sedate mode, as does the slightly more moody "Sedatives For The Sentimental," but "I Need Medicine" brings back both the beats and the vocals for a full dose of tech-psychedelia. "1995," meanwhile, insinuates with a sleazy slide, while the languorous "Calm Before The Storm" drifts along. "All Good Things" starts to reach for transcendence, and "Time's Fool" fades out gently. Perfect for listening to while driving through a thick fog.
Solid production.. genius ! 19 May 2009

Superb lush electronic sounds. If you like James Holden, Nathan Fake, Border Community label, you will love this. The production is excellent and its great music to listen to anywhere, anytime.
