Umut presents: Phace – Caged EP (Vision Recordings)
Hardly any other German artist has managed to get his own sound as well known as Phace aka Florian Harres. So it’s no surprise that after his shortest album ever, Between, the man from Hamburg easily manages to get an EP out on Vision Recordings.
The title track ‘Caged’ doesn’t play around for long because the intro already emits a rapidly rising atmosphere. In the end you are overrun by weird stabs and glitchy-wet claps. ‘Inside The Box’ is Phace in his purest form! Hard bass and effect-soaked vocal hits accompany animating rhythms to bring basically any dancefloor to boiling point. With ‘Spray’ you are chased around the arena by halftime interludes and furious drum shuffles. Sugarcoated’ is the rolling tail light. The perpetually marching sonic construct knows only one direction: forward!
Caged is what you expect from a Phace-EP: weird, on point and full of brute industrial power. Nevertheless, it can be heard that the joy of experimentation during the work on ‘Between’ did him more than good. Don’t forget the funk!
