Iori

Galaxy - Lord Of The Isles Remix

LAs the first release on Phonica White back in 2009, ‘Galaxy’ by Japan’s Iori is an expertly crafted piece of dancefloor-focused Techno, led by a rolling bassline and crisp hi-hats, with hypnotic melody patterns skittering off the surface. As we described it upon release, it’s a trippy but accessible heads-down affair that has the depth and the bite to do damage at peak-time and in the after-hours alike. A decade later, those words still ring true and as it’s now one of the most sought after records on Phonica White it’s the perfect time to revive it - with a twist.

This time we have freshened up the record by swapping original B-side ‘Urge’ with a previously unreleased remix of ‘Galaxy’ from Lord Of The Isles, the producer behind two of Phonica’s best received 12”s on the main label; ‘Year Of The City’ & ‘Greane / Gigha’. Countering the original’s functional sonics, his remix takes the track in a deeper, widescreen direction, swirling the original’s components around immersive pads and piano.

To keep collectors of the first pressing happy as well as to differentiate the two versions, the label artwork is the same Pedro Carvalho de Almeida design yet inverted and slightly tweaked to reflect the new tracklist and catalogue number.

Another from Phonica's imperative white series: "Song For Mr. Lewis" a new record from Austin Ato. Possibly unfamiliar to most right now but you will have undoubtedly heard his music before. The man behind the mask - Colin Bailey - has a decade of music production experience under his belt using aliases such as Drums Of Death, Frankie Dreams and The Slumberjack. At the core of "Song For Mr Lewis" is a moving speech from civil rights activist Representative John Lewis on gun control in the United States, a message that sadly remains just as important to this day. Pure house! On the flip, the dub versions strips everything back to the drums, a raw counterpoint to the deeper original, perfect as a DJ tool but a powerful bare-bones track in itself. Finally, the blissful "Morning" closes the EP in style, with Colin laying keys over the top of a dubbed out drum machine and bass loop that could just keep going and going. 
Artwork as always is supplied by the talented Pedro Carvalho de Almeida.
