Phantasy Sound initially founded in 2007, what began as a springboard for new artists has grown into something far more expansive. With so much to share on the near horizon, we’re taking this opportunity to revisit each single release so far, counting forwards from our debut. Each day we’ll be delving into our archives of over 400 tracks, sharing artist insights whilst exploring our unique psychedelic sensibility.
This very interesting label -Phantasy, approaches it’s landmark hundredth-single release with another impactful single from one of the label’s key artists, James Welsh. Regularly played by producers from Midland to Charlotte De Witte, Welsh’s masterfully dense take on techno and electronica reaches new complexities on ‘Pan’, without ever-sacrificing his singular industrial groove.
The title track is a tunneling electroid roller layered informed by complex conversations seemingly taking place between man, machine, ghostly human speech and a veritable wind tunnel of noise. Perhaps Welsh’s finest connection yet between the blissful and the ruthless, ‘Pan’ demands submission.
On ‘Sink’, Welsh builds yet another perfectly-executed club weapon around an imaginative spoken-word sample, loosening up the tension of it’s more severe partner with a lucid and rhythmic trail of wide-eyed electro.
Phantasy Sound will release James Welsh\’s \’Pan/Sink EP\’ on October 16th 2020.
