Phantasy are proud to present their 50th release.
With two years having passed since 2013’s hugely acclaimed Drone Logic, Daniel Avery returns to Phantasy to offer a much anticipated taste of his restless studio experimentation.
Sensation projects Avery’s distinctive feedback and engrossing modulations onto his widest canvas yet. Surges of noise link the track to artists such as Cortini and Basinski in its ability to echo purposefully across vast halls, yet proving to be just as absorbing in more intimate circumstances. Still, tough drums amid the shifting atmospherics nonetheless hint at Avery’s continuing stride towards techno’s more relentless facets.
While Sensation floats freely, Clear continues Avery’s occasional forays into unapologetically trippy realms. Revisiting an evolved but no less addictive form of the acidic psychedelia touched on throughout the duration of Drone Logic, Clear spirals seamlessly into both paranoia and euphoria.
This year Avery launched Divided Love, a “semi-regular gathering for like-minded sonic souls” at London’s fabric which has also travelled to Paris, Lisbon, LA, New York and Lyon’s Nuits Sonores festival. Guests have included Rødhåd, KiNK, Factory Floor and Roman Flügel, acts who all contributed to Avery's New Energy remix collection released last winter which also featured reworks by Silent Servant, Powell, Ø [Phase] and Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve.
