Always under the excellent curatorial tutelage of Erol Alkan, UK based record label Phantasy has been around for 7 years but has hit it’s stride in the last 3 years.
Between the rise of wavy space cowboys Connan Mockasin and Daniel Avery, banging solo work by Chemical Brother Tom Rowlands, and Alkan’s own foray into producing original work…Phantasy is doing the damn thing.
And with the recent announcement of a full length …

Polish DJ/production duo Ptaki (which means birds in Polish) flew into discerning listeners radars like a full on flock sometimes registers on an air traffic controllers screen awhile back with a ripping 7″ on the Very Polish Cut-Outs label a few years back. “Krystina” is a laid back groover that by edit standards stands out as a shimmering example of what a savvy editor can do …

With their third unnerving collaboration with film director David Fincher, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have fashioned a dizzying and thoroughly hypnotic trip for Fincher’s version of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling suburban nightmare Gone Girl.
In a wonderful in-depth interview with the Wall Street Journal, Reznor claims that Fincher asked him to think of the “really terrible music you hear in massage parlors” as a starting point and …

Local producer/DJ/allaroundraddude Diego Herrera wears a grip of hats. The dublab DJ is a lynchpin in Pharoahs, produces wavy House as Suzanne Kraft and is set to release a brand new heater of a 12″ under the name Dude Energy.
The 2nd release on producer Tornado Wallace’s Animals Dancing label, Dude Energy finds Herrera flexing slightly less ambient muscle and with overtly chuggy intention. The 3 …

Being from Philadelphia, I admittedly don’t have a lot of love in my heart for New York.
It’s in my DNA as a Philadelphian underdog to snarl at “The Big Apple” (which is the corniest nickname for city I’ve ever heard.)
Last time I checked apples don’t smell like pee, sell $15 packs of cigarettes or charge thousands of dollars in rent for a closet.
Still, I gotta respect …

The brainchild of intrepid and enterprising DJ dudes who believe in the power of the groove, Rainbow Disco Club was going to be a new kind of festival and a concerted effort to bring about a new wave of Japanese club life.
That ship flew into deep space with …

If you ever happen to catch my show on Saturday nights, you’re probably aware of my long-standing admiration for legendary UK DJ, half of ….Wizard’s Sleeve and Phantasy label boss Erol Alkan.
His influence on my ears is undeniable.
His penchant for looking for (and finding) the place where dreamy psychedelia and dark teeth grinding bangers meet is a next level gift and something I can only keep aspiring to do.
Although …

Lauer: Artist You Should Know

A number of years back, on the strength of some really strong, super wonky graphic design I picked up a 12″ by Lauer called “H.R. Boss“.
A chuggy, lush slice of beachy sunrise House, it turned out to be a set fixture for awhile.
Fascinated with all things Lauer, I started following the German artists output…Lauer, Hotel Lauer, Tuff City Kids (his project with Running Back label boss …
