PHONICAAM001

Regular price £9.15 (£10.98 Inc VAT)

Release Date: January 2022

Phonica AM is a new imprint curated by staff member Luther Vine focusing on a more ‘after hours’ sound. Think tripped-out Techno, Minimal, Electro and every shade in between.

Voodoos and Taboos are up first with the ‘If We Were’ 12”, a four track EP drawing on strains of Tech- House, 90s Breaks and Techno/Electro. The mysterious duo follow up a string of high calibre releases on their own imprint which have gained substantial hype both upon release and on the second-hand market, with Discogs prices skyrocketing.

A1 ‘Doorway’ is a nuanced, spacey Techno banger with intricate synth licks, underpinned by a pumping groove. Title track ‘If We Were’ is a rich and emotive track, blooming pads, euphoric motifs, fortified by a futuristic jacking groove.

On the flip, ‘Witch House’ is wonky, bassline driven Tech-House with a hefty splash of acid. Final track ‘Holyday’ is a refined modern homage to 90s rave, all swinging break beats and slick vocal fragmentation.
