Chris Fry

Chris is no stranger to us, as he has released his ‘Blind Spot‘ EP on Gents & Dandy’s around mid March 2017. That EP was really well received and supported wordlwide.

The man hasn’t been sitting still during that time. He’s had releases signed on one of the biggest underground labels from across the pond namely Nervous,  as well as on the UK vinyl-only label 124 Records, helmed by Owain Bellis.


Mr Fry’s single opens with powerful, crisp and slightly (over)saturated drums that give it a bit of lo-fi feel, a thumping bassline and short looped chord sample that builds towards the break at the two minute marker. That’s the place where everything is dropped and Chris introduces his lovely chord progession. The track builds up again with all elements underpinning the chords and sampled vocal that hints towards LTJ Bukem – Atlantis. Really well done and fitting the vibe of the track.
