about

Last year City Fly unearthed a raw diamond in the form of Russia’s Alexander
Lay-Far AKA Lay-Far with his ‘Perfect World’ track being the choice cut on City
Fly’s ‘Visions Volume 2’ EP – its dream-like harmony, yearning female tones and
warm bass culminating in a transcendent production. Since his contribution to
City Fly the Moscow native and ‘In-Beat-Ween Sessions’ host has already built an
impressive discography with releases on Dutch tastemakers 4lux, Moscow’s Shanti
records and JD records with Detroit marvel Terrence Parker remixing him – not to
mention further releases out on distinguished house labels including Amp Art,
Visky Recordings, Fifty Fathoms Deep and a forthcoming 12” with Jonny Miller on
the Atjazz Record Company imprint.

However, it was the release of his acclaimed debut album ‘So Many Ways’ on
Chicago imprint Glenview Records Inc that saw him receive some deserved exposure
and gain a wider audience – putting him firmly on the house map. Though the
album has its roots in house, its melting pot of influences and genres with
lashings of funk, soul and R&B elevated it above the usual house fare and found
its way into the record bags of revered tastemakers such as Osunlade, Mad Mats
and Inkswel.

Having monitored his progress closely since there last collaboration it was only
a matter of time before City Fly brought Lay-Far back into the fold. Having
planted the seeds to grow an alliance that has come to fruition with him flying
over for an exclusive DJ set and now launching his debut ‘It’s On’ EP for the
label, this Kindred Spirit is definitely one to watch…
