Release Date: 7th August 2020
Main Phase returns to Warehouse Rave with a four tracker 12" that shows the Copenhagen native take on both 2-step, grime and breaks. The release, Cool Down EP, sees the rising garagehead Main Phase explore the murky and dark areas of 2-step with direct nods to the grime scene generals as well as early rave sounds and euphoric breaks.
First cut on the 2-step dominated A-side, "Eski", sees Main Phase go dark with tight syncopated beats, heavy basslines and a little help from the godfather himself.
Staying in grime-ish areas, "Bluku" delivers clear nods to the grime-scene with icy synths and sirens while still maintaining the freshness of 2-step. Oh my gosh!
The B-side of the record opens up with the title track "Cool Down ('93 Mix)", an homage to big raves, hefty breaks and slashing reeses.
From slashing reeses to gully subs, the final track of the record, "All of the People" sees Main Phase make breaks workout side-by-side with playful synth melodies and mc-samples from way back when. Hold tight!
