Ghost Culture


The Erol Alkan‘s label doesn’t stop to launch high quality releases. Phantasy Sound has established itself as one of the most respected labels on the European scene, and, with eps like the one we have in hand, will remain so. The London label is home for artists like Daniel Avery, who recently released his first album here, Drone Logic, Jimmy Edgar, who remixed the latest Phantasy release of Nadia Ksaiba, Future Four, In Flagranti, or even the great Tom Rowlands (Chemical Brothers) released an ep by Phantasy last April.

About Ghost Culture, we know it is a promising young talent, also a native of London, and presents three tracks riding between Depeche Mode and Deetron. The track that gives the name of the debut ep of this new release, Mouth, is a journey between the acid and the groove, with an intro that prepares you for the pleasant surprise of a drum and a powerful bass. The acid notes are growing in length and release, while we know the voice of the artist, as we say in an eighties style. Mouth also features a dub version, for lovers of the darkness. The track is perfect to open a room.

With Red Smoke we put on our dancing shoes and go to the floor. With it, we know the tech-house side of Ghost Culture on a peak-time focused theme, more effective, and with some 303 touches. Halfway between Detroit and European techno, Red Smoke leads to a breakdown, where we take a breath and get strength to face the rhythm back again, with more marked hats that will delight the Richies and company. We believe we have Ghost Culture for a while. Remember where you heard it first.
