George FitzGerald is a DJ and producer who made his name spinning discs at the worlds greatest clubs. He has also been displaying his abilities as a resident DJ on Radio 1 for the past couple of years. Fading Love is his debut album and an attempt to recreate the intimacy of the smaller club nights he used to play. It can be thought of as the kind of thinking man’s electro that Caribou and Jon Hopkins make.

5/10 Laurie Staff review, 23 April 2015

While it may have passed me by completely, George Fitzgerald is currently holding a residency at Radio 1 and is DJing “big clubs”. Considering the Fitz I knew back in late 2011 who graced Leeds’ modest Mint club, it’s fair to say that he’s doing well after the house/garage/future-post-step-whatever scene dissolved and left DJs and producers with a crossroads. Go commercial as Disclosure did, or go esoteric, such as Koreless’ beatless meditations.

You can see where this is going. Fitzgerald has definitely gone for appeal, which is fine, if you can maintain the essence of your roots, which incidentally is Fitz’s primary motive here - to invoke those small club beginnings. I’m not sure if that’s what I’m hearing though, through the low to mid tempo synth-led house, there just isn’t much substance. The synthwork is basic, centering around restrained broken arps, the beats don’t consist of any creative sampling whatsoever, the vocals are a vapid ‘britsoul’ croon (see ‘Call it Love’).

Ian’s paltry attempt at sultry dancing to this pretty much sums it up, him being a cheap imitation of the real thing. It sort of reminds me of Portico’s recent one, watered down and lacking personality. Some cut up vocals hark back to those halcyon nights in a little Leeds venue, but the backdrop just screams festival pleaser. It’ll be great at a festival, and indeed, tracks like ‘Full Circle’ would do well in an earlier set on a big system, but the lasting power for this will be minimal.
