One of Dessous‘ key recording artists, and something of a legend in his own right, Phonique returns triumphant with his next EP: ‘Vincent Price‘, a digital only release. Three tracks of pushing, warm and melodic modern House music are presented with all the high standard and gusto that we‘ve come to expect from one of Berlin‘s longest standing Producers.
Lead track ‘Vincent Price‘ is a conceptual slice of nu-wave electronic disco. Emerging elegantly from atmospheric field recordings, a haunting moog-style synth refrain leads us into open, warm and almost balearic zones. Wonderfully melancholic, and dramatically charged at its peak, ‘Vincent Price‘ could just as easily be the soundtrack to a stunning cine- matic scene, as it could be tomorrow‘s next club hit. A reduced and more straightforward ‚dub‘ version is also included for lovers of the hypnotic groove.
With its melodic flourishes and insistent, powerful groove, we are urged to ‘Turn Off The Lights‘ as ‘Baku‘ takes to the scene. Smooth, growing harmonic elements wash over us in ethereal glory as this emotional journey works its way into our psyche.
