Erol Alkan - Automatic Remixes [PH100]
The hundredth single on Phantasy, Erol Alkan's 'Automatic' returns to vinyl, accompanied by two contrasting and compelling remixes from Palms Trax and LA Priest. Released on 30th April and available to pre-order on 12" vinyl.
Palms Trax builds on the sensual reverie of Alkan’s production with an electrifying rework full of touches both French and personal. Throwing out a gloriously chic bassline, the Berlin-based producer sprinkles carefully considered sweeps, stabs and filters on a trip to timeless house euphoria.
Mirroring the first ever artist to release on Phantasy in 2007 where Alkan remixed 'Engine', LA Priest proves a perfect candidate to reconstruct the label’s centenary single, a task he approaches with typically esoteric nous. Coaxing a heavenly aura from the original’s glorious loops, Sam Eastgate’s collection of reengineered and self-made analogue equipment soon progresses to melt Automatic’s rhythm into sticky cosmic bliss.
12" vinyl comes with a free mp3 download, or wav files on request.
