On his debut single, TS000002, Teo Mattress establishes himself as a fresh voice within a new generation of artists in Vancouver’s after-hours scene while honoring the signature baked-melancholia that skyrocketed the city to prominence in the early 2010s. Out February 8th, 2019 on Seattle imprint Tech Startup, TS000002 presents three emotionally-charged versions of the track Fairfield. The release evokes the grief and disorientation of heartbreak and questions the importance of home and place in one’s sense of stability.
The record kicks off with Fairfield (Speedin’ Mix), whose frenetic beats and expansive pads are sure to illuminate dancefloors in the early hours of the morning. Fairfield (Coastin’ Mix)—with its stirring melodies and subtle, swung percussion—arouses sentiments of contemplation and solitude. Bristol-based artist LT contributes the compelling remix Fairfield (LT’s Truckin’ Mix) that resolves the project with an entrancing downtempo finale.
