PHI is a Slovenian music platform for mature artists with clear vision and distinct sound. Their goal is to allow their artists to express themselves in their own way, therefore providing the label with intimate, innovative and unconventional electronic music for different listening settings. Their first release features Evano and now PHI returns to your favourite record store with the Pragmatism EP from Vid Vai.
Vid Vai - Pragmatism EP
The Pragmatism EP opens with a subtle yet catchy electro rattle crawling from a wet basement, soon opening rusty iron doors with an "early 90s electronica" sign with the help of a massive atmospheric push. Dial-up Terror manages to recall the boundless sounds of pioneering techno days only to give hand to the playful and jacking after-hours stomper that is No - Fun + Compute.
Crossroads between ambient and electro rarely sounded as dreamy as with timeless Ultrasonic Sensei Particle and its kaleidoscopic arrangements, that might have landed one of your favourite early Warp releases. PHI002 saves best for last with cinematic hypnotism called Memento Mori, a perfect closure for a colourful release that carves a soundscape deeper than trendy genre names.
