Turn up the smoke machine and ready the handclaps. Phantom producer E. Myers lines up all your favourite 80s house sounds for a third white label mission, delivering the soundtrack outtake from Beverly Hills Cop you always wanted.
Bursting out of the stops with a muscular kick and some very tight 808 drum hits ‘Untitled’ is sure to prick the ears of wallflowers and have heads hastily abandoning the bar queue. Mesmerising glass-like sequences snake through the beat creating a taut mystique, and then add in a very substantial widescreen bass, the edges of which are surging and shifting all the time. Add some very distant Teutonic pads, and it becomes a manifesto for sweaty basements.
Clearly a record intended for DJ use, Myers supplies two alternate mixes for maximum playability, ontop of the ‘Main Mix’ that we premiere today. The ‘Heat Mix’ keeps the huge lead, ramping up the drama, while the ‘Beat Mix’ does exactly what it says on the tin, with extra whistles and the fatness turned up across the board. Considering Ben UFO and Honey Soundsystem have been supporting previous productions, expect to hear this on the relevant dancefloors soon.
Untitled is out 28th July – pre-order from Phonica.
