Red Axes return to Phantasy with a double A sided single 'The Phone Call' that captures and expands on the creative relationship forged between the cult Israeli duo and the label. Out now digitally, with the 12" vinyl release to follow shortly after in February.

Carving a hypnotic path against the maximalism currently au-fait in club culture, ‘The Phone Call’ is as peculiar as it is powerfully effective, a stripped back groove serving as the backdrop to the Axes’ playful deconstruction of an obscure broadcast concerning telephone area codes. A lesser staple of club culture, Sardnovik and Azri transform archival public information into club disorder, stretching a short burst of dialogue to absurd limits before releasing the tension with vampish pianos.
‘Sound Text XoX’ meanwhile finds the pair delivering a surprising alternative take on the lead track from their 2019 EP, retaining its central escalating countdown but adding a powerful, dystopian acid line. The resulting track transforms an already beloved club tool into a frenetic powerhouse.
The single arrives in tandem with a new compilation ‘The Phantasy Collection (Part 1)’ out now on streaming platforms and to download. Collecting an enviable run of EPs between 2018 that have resulted in Niz Arzi and Dori Sadnovil’s deserved prominence in DJ sets spanning genres.
