Sonically, he continues where his last record left off and feels like the perfect companion to that well-received debut for Phonica. The record as a whole is composed of field recordings, with the basis for the first half of the EP, 'Introduction to Lisboa,' utilising sound recorded in and around Lisbon. He explains, 'I wanted the music and field recordings to meld at times, to obscure what was conventionally the musical element and what were field recordings, blurring the line between found sound and composition in the creation of a whole other.
It melds into 'Baixa Saxaphone', where carefully paced percussion patiently enters over a wash of synth. From then on a delicate balance of restrained percussion and spine-tingling atmos- pherics interplay before descending into a blissful outro.
As with the previous EP, the 12' is packaged in technicolour artwork by acclaimed London designer Jack Featherstone. Phonica Special Editions' first release for comes courtesy of new signing Sad City. Northern Irish born, Glasgow-based Gary Caruth might not be a household name just yet, but with an EP on cult US imprint Underwater Peoples already under his belt, it's safe to say he's destined for great things.
His release for our Special Editions offshoot, is a magnificent four tracker of swirling synths, subtle detailing and melodic bliss. It kicks off with the reverb-drenched, hazy atmospherics of 'Polymath' and the trippy glockenspiel-inspired melodies of 'Easing' which recalls some of Four Tet's early output definitely a good thing in our books!
Phonica Special Editions follow up their inaugural release with an EP featuring three remixes of singer, producer and Toronto native, Sandro Perri.
Fresh from his recent outing on Resista, Tom Croose is kept busy with not one, but two remixes of mr Perri. All that, while getting boosted from a criminally short three and a half minutes to a more respectable nine plus He takes 'The Drums' a track from Sandro's debut album 'Tiny Mirrors' to places where it's never been before.
Rounding off this excellent remix 12' we have Tom Croose again, who returns for another version of 'The Drums' and harmoniously marries synth riffs and a laid back groove with Sandro's signature contemplative vocal, rounding off this excellent remix package in style. Phonica Records inaugurate a new series of releases that will fall under the 'Special Editions' banner; a series that will feature collaborations, one-off releases and anything that doesn't fit into the main labels' outlook.
The first release comes from Sinkane, a hotly tipped new artist from NY. Sinkane is the project of Sudanese-born musician Ahmed Gallab. He has emerged from it all as Sinkane, a project that identifies a renaissance within the space and spirit of the outposts of contemporary music. With an aesthetic range seamlessly shifting from soul to rock, and from jazz to pop, Sinkane's vibe is timeless and the sound is now. Runnin' is a song taken from a collection of songs simply titled Mars.
On this limited edition 12" from London's Phonica Records, the album version of Runnin' is re-imagined as an increasingly dense longburn club jam by Daphni Dan Snaith of Caribou fame and as a more angular headjam by Chandeliers of Chicago.
