“A studio jammed full of gear is a lot more vibey than one with just a computer, a controller and some monitors.”

So says Timothy J. Fairplay – synth collector, studio partner with Andrew Weatherall and self-described “contrary fucker”. Last week, FACT TV went to the Shoreditch studio that Weatherall and Fairplay share, and coaxed him into a five-minute-plus synth jam for the cameras, as well as a short tour of the studio.

Fairplay will be playing live at Field Work on April 4 at the Grosvenor, Stockwell, London, alongside an extended DJ set from Jack Savidge (Deep Shit / Friendly Fires).
