Released February 2017 on his own Ladies and Gentlemen imprint, Green Supreme is the fourth studio album from house music veteran Phonique: a collection of 11 remarkable songs from one of the scene’s most revered producers.
To describe Phonique as prolific would be something of an understatement. To date, he has amassed a discography of more than 500 original tracks and remixes – as well as three previous studio albums – for acclaimed labels such as Dessous, Poker Flat, Crosstown Rebels, Systematic, Souvenir and of course his own label Ladies and Gentlemen, a collection which includes some runaway successes.
The 2010 track ‘Feel What You Want,’ taken from his second album Kissing Strangers currently has over 36 million views on YouTube, while the 2012 track ‘Vincent Price’ currently sits at the 11 million mark, making Phonique one of the very few truly underground producers whose music has the ability to cross into the mainstream.
Despite working on Green Supreme, Phonique’s fierce production rate has continued unabated in 2016, with highlights including ‘T Groove’ on Katermukke and his stunning remix of Frank & Friedrich 'Coming Home' which landed on Universal earlier this year.
Phonique’s three previous critically-acclaimed albums attest to his evolving sound and diverse influences, his deep knowledge of house music, and masterful attention to detail, all of which are further established with Green Supreme, arguably his most diverse and polished album to date.
Throughout his career, Phonique has excelled in working with vocalists, a theme that continues with this collection. Tracks of note include the creepingly ominous deep tech of ‘Something To Remember’, on which Stee Downes delivers a phenomenal vocal, and ‘Taking A Chance’, a delicately melancholic deep house cut complete with sweeping synths and half-caught vocal samples.
“This is my most focussed album by far” say Phonique of the project. “An album should be a pleasure to listen to, even in five, ten, twenty years, so it can’t just be a club beats for 60 minutes. I need vocals, warm melodies and stories.
“Personally I really enjoy finding the perfect vocalist for an instrumental I made in the studio. So after getting in touch with the vocalist and giving them directions it’s always an exciting moment to receive their ideas, and my studio partner Tigerskin is incredibly talented in that area. I’m really proud of the end result and hope it will stand the test of time.”
