Phonetix makes his first appearance on Downplay, a subsidiary of the mighty Slime Recordings Group.
Harking back to a time when the UK Garage sound was exploding in different stylistic directions, the EP showcases some of the key sounds that made the genre such a powerful creative force in the early noughties.
'The Pay-Off' begins proceedings with a cheeky sample & a dark 2 Step groove reminiscent of Oris Jay & Zed Bias' early work.
'Lighting Fires' takes the tempo up a notch for a thunderous bass-heavy 4x4 roller, designed directly for the dancefloor.
'Get On Down' rolls back the years to the Bingo-era of Breakstep mayhe, complete with crazy percussion & rapid-fire basslines.
'Goodbye' features the talents of Alyssa on a classic UKG join packed full of soul in the best MJ Cole tradition, that exudes class & style.
All tracks arranged, engineered & produced by Phonetix. Mastered by SC Mastering.
Scheduled for release via Downplay on 28th May 2021, more info to follow.
