  • The 100th release on Phantasy Sound is a single by label boss Erol Alkan. "I spent some of lockdown revisiting music I'd made that I had almost forgotten had existed, looking for projects that might be worth another look," Alkan says. "Although I originally recorded it around 2008, 'Automatic' immediately shone through as a track that was a perfect distillation of many of the records that had influenced me from around then, as well as something I'd have played in a dark, sweaty club in 2020 or 2021, given the opportunity. There is a certain symmetry and arc of the then into now, which made it feel like the perfect record to release as the 100th single." Automatic, which is out today, is available digitally and on limited-edition vinyl, though the latter has already sold out. Alkan launched Phantasy Sound in 2007 and has released music by the likes of Daniel Avery, Wilted Woman and The Chemical Brothers' Tom Rowlands. Listen to "Automatic."
