Phonat – Ghetto Burnin (2011 Mixes)
‘Ghetto Burnin’, a track written and performed with Yolanda Quarterly, has been the organic builder from ‘Phonat’ ranking over 500k views on Youtube and rising. With inner city violence and social decay the theme ‘Ghetto Burnin’ has become one of Phonat’s most popular tracks. Even the guys that put together the music for cult drama 24 spotted the appeal, quickly making it the title track for a Japanese airing of the series.
MofoHifi are proud to announce the issue of the Ghetto Burnin’ 2011 remix package featuring updates from Arveene & MiSK, MMMatthias, Bahar Canca, Sharooz and Johnatron.
Arveene & MiSK, who can count Annie Mac and Erol Alkan as fans, deliver a low lying flat beat full of acid, grit and wobble; one for the bassbin riders and the booty-shakers. Dishing out the nu-wave electro, MMMatthias applies a simple, but stunning sub-115bpm cosmic groove to his version. And Johnatron, the head-honcho from super-blog Discoworkout matches his namesake with a wicked disco-tinged recut. But it’s Bahar Canca that turns it up a notch with a solid tech-house big roomer. Completing the package MofoHifi redeliver the timeless minimalistic re-edit from Sharooz.
‘Ghetto Burnin’ is complimented by the 3rd in a trilogy of videos made for Phonat by Amsterdam-based Italian experimental artists the Savants Collective. Seamlessly merging stop motion animation of slices cut out of picture books with CGI elements it’s a visual feast with the trademark Phonat look.
