Check out Daniel Avery's new 'August 2017' Resident Advisor DJ Chart HERE, featuring the likes of his new collaboration with Alessandro Cortini, Pitch and Mumdance, Volte-Face and more.
Listen back to James Welsh's first mix on Rinse FM, aired 18th August, featuring a play of recent club track 'Thread' and previous release 'Standing'.
Phantasy welcomed Future Four onto the roster back in 2013, an exciting project and alter ego of Andy Meecham (the brains and brawn behind The Emperor Machine, Bizarre Inc and Chicken Lips) & Erol Alkan. The debut EP 'This is the Sound of the Future Four' comprised of a trio of tracks that paid homage to the raw, unfiltered and brazen warehouse sounds of the early 90s, harnessing the hedonistic spirit of electronic music of the early 1990s.
The original tracks from the EP were created from the original sound sets from the 90s, discovered on a series of old S950 an MPC60 floppy disks. Now freshly remixed by the likes of some serious talent; Tuff City Kids, Dark Circles and Jacques Renault, giving their own visions of the mighty originals, the tracks breathe a new life as heavy bangers once more.
First up, the hugely in demand duo Gerd Janson & Phillip Lauer. Under their Tuff City Kids guise the pair take on the fearsome 'Gwad Bwash' and whilst the reigns are initially tight enough just to allow the keys to groove away, soon the beast can be held no longer and the synth riff raises the roof and arms in unison.
Dark Circle's monstrous remix of 'Into Orbit' sees a beautiful bass beacon shine bright as its piano riff calls out. Without a doubt a belter on the stereo and on the floor. DFA and Gomma artist Jacques Renault made his Phantasy debut on his remix of 'Phase Two'. Dominated by its synth melody and underpinned by its bubbling acid line the fresh new take from the Washington native is pure party music in the finest sense of the word.
EP1 Remixed [PH23RMX] Tracklist:
- Into Orbit (Dark Circles Remix)
- Phase 2 (Jacques Renault Remix)
- Gwad Bwash (Tuff City Kids Remix)

Our 50th release on Phantasy saw Daniel Avery emerge post 'Drone Logic' with 'Sensation/Clear'. The two tracks were remixed in distinctive fashion by two fellow outliers on the fringes of psychedelic, experimental techno.
Acclaimed producer and Eaux Records mastermind Rrose commits a typically ambitious and sonically experimental redux to Sensation. While retaining much of the original’s hypnotic, almost celestial groove, its atmospherics are transformed into something altogether more alien and overwhelming, culminating in an epic yet utterly earned conclusion of visceral noise.
Abdulla Rashim meanwhile guides the sound of ‘Clear’ into deeper territory still, engineering an initially unassuming remix that ultimately reveals layer upon layer of painstaking detail. Polyrhythmic bass lines interlock expertly from the beginning, gradually unfolding while never relenting.
Pressed onto heavyweight 12" vinyl.
- A ‘Sensation' (Rrose Remix)
- B ‘Clear' (Abdulla Rashim Remix)

Taken from Beyond The Wizards Sleeve's acclaimed debut 'The Soft Bounce', we released two expansive remixes from the album by Daniel Avery and BTU - a collaboration between producers Babe, Terror and U. Two very distinct trips into the outer reaches of electronic sound.
Avery ramps up the atmosphere of 'The Soft Bounce' with an airy, drifting electronic mantra, pulsing with gliding motorik propulsion perfect for late night escapades.
On the flipside, BTU, take album closer 'Third Mynd' and recast it as a mind opening sixteen minute collage of found sound, drone and atmosphere, a psychedelic opus befitting Jon Savage's otherworldly speech. Bliss.
Pressed onto a limited edition heavyweight white vinyl, it is part of a series of releases from BTWS on coloured vinyl you can find HERE.

Outsider house misfits Cowboy Rhythmbox, return to Phantasy with a tri-pronged blitzkrieg of wildly singular tracks.
Scream: A revved-up industrial beast of a track. Primal, animalistic vocals conspire with dub percussion and a sinister acidic arpeggio. A symphony of gut-level grit and abrasive alchemy.
'Tanz Exotique' Tracklist [PH67]:
A1: Tanz Exotique
A2: Cats' Invasion

For our 40th release we brought you a pair of monstrous remixes taken from Daniel Avery's remix album 'New Energy [Collected Remixes]'. Daniel Avery's 'All I Need', by a hero of the techno scene, hero of the house scene, hero of the everything electronic scene: Roman Flügel featured in Resident Advisor's 'Top 100 tracks of 2014' at #25 and Crack Magazine's 'Tracks of 2014' at #13.
On the flip, we welcomed Chilean sonic soundsmith Ricardo Tobar, who took 'These Nights Never End' and delivered the kind of beautiful, intricate rework that made his album Treillis such a beguiling trip.
