green supreme is the fourth studio album from house music veteran phonique: a collection of 11 remarkable songs from one of the scenes most revered producers. to describe phonique as prolific would be something of an understatement. to date, he has amassed a discography of more than 500 original tracks and remixes - as well as three previous studio albums - for acclaimed labels such as dessous, poker flat, crosstown rebels, systematic, souvenir and of course his own label ladies and gentlemen, a collection which includes some runaway successes. despite working on green supreme, phoniques fierce production rate has continued unabated in 2016, with highlights including t groove on katermukke and his stunning remix of frank & friedrich coming home which landed on universal earlier this year. phoniques three previous critically-acclaimed albums attest to his evolving sound and diverse influences, his deep knowledge of house
for their resopal debut, the italian duo metrophonique have delivered a trio of tracks that have a bunch of techno elements at their core. -high fidelity- brings together raw, jackin funk with a warm, driving bass line and scything, techy stabs while -something wrong- matches its fun, bouncy groove with an infectious and spritely melody. -deep- comes heavy with the oldskool, delivering a bed of beats and samples beneath the very heaviest of techno kicks.
incl. mihai popoviciu remix ! llongtime globetrotter and dessous affliate phonique joins forces with acumen for the latest slice of deep, emotional house music on the irrepressible label. acumen, the multi-talented frenchman who also runs the renowned the time has chan- ged imprint, brings his trademark fair for melo- dic inventiveness to phonique s dance-foor edge - and the results are exceptional. the moment features boot slap on vocal duties, and dives deep into the underground party vibe - a sick groove that grows into a fully euphoric late night foor destroyer.
a true master of the deeper arts, phonique has, since his first steps into the world of production back in the early 2000s, become synonymous with and eulogised for his beautifully cultured productions. labels such as simple, buzzin fly, souvenir and of course systematic have all played host to his music, but it s his work for steve bugs dessous imprint for which he is most renowned. first up is phoniques solo production, >2 my jungle< which sees him step into jacking tech-house territory. lovely open hi-hats are paired with the punch of the kick drum. a trumpet riff enters the fray, backed by the grooving throb of the bassline. its vocal samples are twisted and filtered throughout as phonique creates a wonderfully trippy summer anthem. on the flip he teams up with desolat badboy, guti. still riding high on the wave of support for his fantastic debut album >patio de juegos<, the argentinian producer phonique show just how much fun they can have in their electronic playground. beautifully deep and with a lush rhodes melody, >divertimento< entices us with its sultry summer vibes. a polar opposite, yet complete match to the a-side
the long term, super-productive story of class-act producers phonique and tigerskin continues with the next installment on ladies & gentlemen. over 4 tracks (and one more digital bonus) the pair explore their passionate, freaky and funky sides in this, perhaps the most functional release on the label yet! phonique throws us two hot ones with sandman and longdrink. the former skips through tripping, tooly and percussive territories while the latter goes all out with addictive rolling bass and hedonistic synth passages. marrying an old-school flavour with high-end, modern moments, phoniques side of this unmissable 12inch is just as strong as his legendary dj sets! tigerskin then takes centre stage with loop back in time and tonys riff. >in time< grows from a rolling drum array into a surging disco fueled killer, that whisks us away to a brighter age with its soaring strings!
guti on a2 is the south american talent enjoying a recent boom with his post-tribal, neo-minimal grooves. he remixes >perfect stranger< into a roaring percussive journey, full of tumbling congas, dramatic fills and fx. its a heady, psychedelic mix for thelater hours!

the pump ep is a typically genre-bending mixture of pumping, groovy house tracks, exploring the many sides of this highly regardedproducers fruitful repertoire. lead track the pump is a vivacious number that takes a clean, modern house aesthetic as a base and later infuses it with a dirtier, earlier morning vibe, with phoniques playful use of the resplendent chord stabs. its a slow burner indeed, and yet another example of his effortless arrangement talents. fancying a spot of fresh air and a trip into the audio countryside, bike ride is an even more playful journey into the kooky electronic world of phoniques studio outings. solid drums and warm sub bass provide the energy for all manner of pops and tweaks to unfold. its another deeper track but be warned it still has the power to lift a crowd up onto its tip-toes. going down more of a techno route, tooltime completes the package and breaks out the big guns for some serious heads down dancefloor ignition. urgent and tight late night action, not for the faint of heart, the tracks title is too modest - it should really read ‚ peak time
