Fresh from his recent release 'Standing/Slip' [PH59], we asked James Welsh to select some tracks that reflect his musical taste, and some that have inspired him along the way. Get lost in the first one from Byetone 'Plastic Star'.
“Big fan of Olaf’s label and this track is killer. Bass is amazing."James

Alongside the Drone Logic album, we've repressed the first 2 Daniel Avery EP's on Phantasy, featuring non-album tracks 'Taste', 'The Eagle', 'Reception', 'One In The Wave' and 'A Quiet Life' across two vinyl releases. Listen to 'Reception' above.
