After he debuted on BPitch with the sublime Velvet Rag EP (BPC316), the Berlin-based producer Phon.o is back with three more of his effective hybrid tracks. The Fractions EP starts moving with the hypnotic drive of Run, in which the dramatic arrangement of the partly frisky, partly menacing Detroit strings evokes nostalgic memories file under soulful big room material. Followed by Brooklyn Shuffle with its swinging flow at 128 BPM, Phon.o is building another bridge between London, New York, and Berlin by unfolding his UK garage sound, including 2-step drums, melodic synths, and the well-known vocal bits. Finally, the subsonic bass lines and reduced percussion of the emotional title track Fractions creating a dark and gloomy atmosphere that is counteracted with contemplative melancholy thanks to those manipulated voices. No ifs, no buts: Phon.o is on fire right now.
