Phantasy 100: PH11 – PH20

PH11 Brazilian artist Babe, Terror was introduced to Phantasy with two releases in quick succession, having been discovered at the time via Myspace. His unusual work was, at that point, unlike anything on the label so far. Indeed, it was much removed from almost anything anywhere, and still sounds utterly unclassifiable a decade later. Arriving on Phantasy with his debut single, ‘Summertime, Our League’ (PH11), the sometimes abstract music of Babe, Terror was investigated in depth and whipped into unexpected shapes by a golden class of remixers including Four Tet, Appleblim & Arkist.   It was released on 12” orange splatter...

Meanwhile, 1 year ago...Beyond The Wizards Sleeve - Daniel Avery & BTU Reworks

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.
