- After the release of their standout Ten Years Of Phonica compilation, Phonica Records keeps up its momentum with a solid 12-inch featuring Luv Jam and Prosumer on their sub-label, Phonica White. Luv Jam, born Andrew Cole, made his name through releases on labels like We Play House, Tsuba, and Rawax. This isn't his first appearance on Phonica White—his previous release, Mature Oak, was an earlier highlight in the series.
Prosumer takes up the A-side with his remix of "Quip22." It's a fat house groove that builds slowly, eventually climaxing with a cloud of fluffy synths before cooling off in style. The original "Quip22" has a melancholic build-up of piano and synth strings, which winds down into an unexpected bouncing bassline. "Synth68" nicely balances the EP. A slow-mo robotic dialogue is set in motion by a flurry of snares. Evoking an early' 90s soundscape, its understated personality makes it sound lost in a moment—a timeless DJ tool.
