NEW PHONAT ‘NUFF SAID
For those of you not familiar with his work, Michele Balduzzi aka Phonat is known for being tall, having large hair and functioning as some sort of electronic production wizard. God only knows how he crams so many awesome ideas into each track - some black sorcery, no doubt - but he surely does.
His music is beautiful, dense, melodic, funky, moody, uplifting, groovy, atmospheric and it is - for me at least - the absolute gold standard of style and finesse in electronic music. Each element is controlled with what seems like post-human precision, and every single note seems like it was meant to be there. He juggles all this while bouncing between genres as if such divides never existed in the first place (which they don’t, not if you don’t want them to).
This release focuses mostly on laid back, atmospheric music. Phonat fans will already know it rules, non-fans should just check out this one track on youtube:
