Phonat – Cockroaches E.P.

Italian-born wunderkind and producer to watch Phonat follows up his critically acclaimed debut album with the Cockroaches EP, a 4 track slice of underground electronica. Eschewing the temptation to cash in on his album’s tastemaker plaudits with a commercial banger, Phonat remains as original and adept as ever, choosing to paint an introspective and edgy audio picture of his Dalston junction bedsit and club culture environment, perfect for murky nights in and sweaty backroom bassbins.
Cockroaches, Spliff Dub, Intimate Confessions and The Microwave FX are the titles and perhaps they say it all. Dubstep, glitch and french house are the main influences – but created in a unique and totally original way, presenting his own take on the atmosphere of London’s underbelly.
Watch out for guest vocal snippets on “Spliff Dub” provided by one of London’s hottest grime MCs, Dizzee Rascal’s protegee – ‘Footsie’ from the Newham Generals.
Phonat is now back in the studio working on new tracks, so expect more surprises from this constantly fresh young artist later in the year on MofoHifi Records.
