Phoniks – Time Goes By

Also Available On: 12″ Limited Edition Vinyl & Limited Edition Cassette & Compact Disc

Coming off the heels of being highlighted in a new Netflix documentary “Underdogs” (link in sidebar) Don’t Sleep Records artist Phoniks is back at work releasing his new atmospheric instrumental tape titled “Time Goes By”. Phoniks weaves foreign jazz loops, soundtracks and soul b-sides together with apocalyptic movie samples, DJ cuts and vinyl drums to form a cohesive 18-track album. Phoniks continues to evolve his sound, bringing more live instruments into the mix than on any of his previous projects. The album opens with jazz chords played off a midi keyboard, using sound design techniques to make them feel like they were sampled out of a dusty attic somewhere, before homogenizing with real vinyl loops as the beat drops. Compositions such as “One Time” ft. DJ Eveready are completely sample-free. Despite the addition of more instruments, it’s still the crate digging ability and ear for melodic jazz samples that drives the sound across the albums 41 minute runtime. Available on CD, Vinyl and Cassette, Phoniks continues to bring his listeners on a journey that began with his debut solo album “Down To Earth” last October. Don’t Sleep.
