in the third of the ‘phobiza trilogy’ we are invited through the ethereal haze that separates our world from ramzi’s flourishing kindom. guided always by the deity’s music. we are given passage through the arcane archipelago that ramzi calls home. a place where animals. children and wild spirits share territories and cooperate in harmony in their plight to protect these ancient islands from the ceaseless threat of the great grey invasion. with the night closely following us. we are welcomed to these lands in dusk’s light. with the warm tones of ‘bibwel’ (featuring asaël robitaille on synth) carrying us across 11 different islets. all with unique climates. flora and fauna. after travelling for many a sunrise and sunset we take pause at mid day on ‘det calash’ isle (with some beats provided by regular fantasy). we ending our journey with a final sunset. this time on the foggy island of ‘warhasu’ (recorded on vancouver island with hashman deejay). amor fati (meaning “love of fate” or “love of one’s fate” in latin) comes as the inaugural release on phoebé’s own fati records and is the new nesting place for ramzi and its’ extended family. the record ends the ‘phobiza’ story. following ‘phobiza dia’ on total stasis and ‘phobiza noite’ on moodhut.

in search of the sublime. contemporary electronic musician steve hauschildt has designed grids and panoramas of sound across multiple releases through the rise and dissolution of his former band. emeralds. an american touchstone of 2000s home-recorded psychedelic noise music. consistent with his solo work is hauschildt’s ability to coil his craft in precise. varied. and distinctly physical forms. gently spinning arpeggios converse with post-industrial decay. sonic fibers sway like pendulums from static melancholy to motorik bliss. dissolvi. the artist’s first full-length with ghostly international. engages sublimation from an ontological perspective: by dissociating the self. hauschildt steps out from the singular path. for the first time in a traditional studio. to compose and arrange contributions from friends. as a result. his most collaborative work to date extends a vast. vibrating framework in which to consider the state of being. the vinyl release includes a download code.
