Phantasy is the name of the original from Betoko, a man who releases his influential tunes on labels like Nervous Records, Smiley Fingers, Hedonism Music, Einmusika Recordings and many more. It is a deep, moody tune with teasing bass and rubbery drums. The centre piece is an emotive, dreamy male vocal that really imbues the track with a sense of forlorn romance. Drop this one in the club and it is sure to get plenty of attention.
Sezer Uysal makes it into something a little darker and deeper, with driving drums and cosmic synths, Monkey Brothers layer in poignant bass and treat the vocal well so that it becomes a spooky, echoing whisper and Simone Vitullo layers in arpeggiated chords that add colour and intergalactic energy. Last of all, Sirus Hood goes for a spine tingling version with delicate chords and melodies raining down from above.
All in all this is a varied and vital package from a hugely consistent label.
