The Radar 96: Mixed by Fairchild en route to his Fortitude headlining slot
The name “Fairchild” might have a familiar ring to it — this is because he’s worked under Kaskade’s mentorship the past couple years as flourishing talent on Arkade. Having captures his well-established boss’ attention with sultry deep house cuts, he first made waves on his new home label with a grooving, “I Just Want You.” Afterward, the Arizona native continued to explore the depths of dance music, entering into progressive territory with his debut EP, Touch The Sun.
Fairchild adds a refined, polished flavor to Arkade, putting out work that is not only consistent in its quality, but also showcasing his grasp of melodic manipulation and sonic arrangement. While Kaskade mans the main stage arena, Fairchild rules the underground aspect of the label, earning support from the likes of Guy J, Henry Saiz, and more.
The burgeoning producer is truly coming into his own, securing his first ever headlining slot in California with Fortitude, a premier promoter in LA that strives to bring high-caliber talent to the city. In celebration of his upcoming gig, scheduled for August 19, Fairchild has kindly put together an exclusive Radar mix packed with eight new original works of his, in addition to some other gems lighting up the progressive world as of late.
“Last time I was here, I had the honor of playing at the Hollywood Palladium alongside Kaskade for his Redux show. What an incredible evening to look back on. Very very excited to be back in LA, this time as the headliner for Purgatorio. I have so much new music I can’t wait to show off. You can hear some new ideas in this mix!” – Fairchild
