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.

Phoniks – Down To Earth

Also Available On: 12″ Limited Edition Vinyl (Pre-Order), Limited Edition Cassette & Down To Earth on Compact Disk

Phoniks returns with his first full-length solo project. An 18-track instrumental hip-hop beat tape titled “Down To Earth”. Nearly 2 years in the works, Phoniks dug through over 250 hours worth of recorded material when piecing together his solo debut. The album is comprised of 2 to 3 minute jazz-tinged lo-fi head nodders connected with thought-provoking spoken word samples from 50’s sci-fi space movies. Crunchy 12-bit drums, spaced-out filters, and delays and a sprinkling of horn loops and soul vocals captivate over the albums 40-min run time. The goal is to take the listener off to another place, floating through the cosmos on a one-man spacecraft with nothing but a pair of headphones and all the time in the world.
