AUTOMATIC (INC PALMS TRAX / LA PRIEST REMIXES)
Daft Punk / Roule like infected Summer Hit
The landmark hundredth single on Phantasy, Erol Alkanís ĎAutomaticí accompanied with two remixes that further take the London DJ and producerís psychedelic club vision in distinct directions. The original 12" pressing, limited to 100 and hand-numbered, sold out in less than an hour.
Palms Trax builds on the sensual reverie of Alkanís production with an electrifying rework full of touches both French and personal. Throwing out a gloriously chic bassline, the Berlin-based producer sprinkles carefully considered sweeps, stabs and filters on a trip to timeless house euphoria.
Mirroring the first ever artist to release on Phantasy in 2007 where Alkan remixed 'Engine', LA Priest proves a perfect candidate to reconstruct the labelís centenary single, a task he approaches with typically esoteric nous. Coaxing a heavenly aura from the originalís glorious loops, Sam Eastgateís collection of reengineered and self-made analogue equipment soon progresses to melt Automaticís rhythm into sticky cosmic bliss.
