Fading Love is FitzGerald’s first full length and his first record on the highly esteemed label Domino (aside from a 10″ and a 12″ on Domino’s Double Six imprint), which makes it a pretty significant step in his career. We’re pretty proud of him in the way you might be proud of a friend who once played on your high school basketball team and now plays in the NBA. His pop potential was evident on his early releases, the catchy anthems that appeared on cornerstone UK house labels like Hotflush, Aus, and Hypercolour—”Shackled” has been stuck in our heads since 2011. His earworm melodies and big room percussion has propelled him to big-time appearances in Ibiza and at festivals like Creamfields, Parklife, Movement, and Tomorrowworld USA. Yet, he clearly hasn’t lost his underground credibility, as he still plays regularly at clubs like Golden Pudel. Anyway, enough rambling about how George FitzGerald is God’s (or the underground’s?) gift to Tomorrowworld—just check out the album below.
