Premiere: Phondupe drops a smooth slow burner, Street Volcano
Production duo Phondupe are set for a massive end to 2015.
After a lengthy hibernation, production duo Phondupe return with a new heater crafted from the chaos of New York City and a sample-hunting trip through Havana. Off the back of a packed Sydney launch, Paradise festival (VIC) a support with Ninja Tune's Maribou State and an upcoming slot at Lost Paradise Festival (Jamie XX, Four Tet), Rich Lucano and Nathan Chan have released the second track from their The Ecstasy Of single series - Street Volcano.
Following on from first single So To The Raker, Street Volcano finds Phondupe at their most k-hole inducing (lifted this from the presser but it's way too good a descriptor not to use). On the track, Lucano (who takes the duo to the stage solo when in Sydney) had this to say: "The inspiration for these new tracks came while living in NYC. I’d take myself to the most chaotic parts of the city, throw on headphones and play ambient electronic music; Boards Of Canada in Times Square, Ryuichi Sakamoto in Chinatown, Triosk at the Myrtle/Broadway stop... The contrast would create this vortex, like you were floating above the crowd. You’re in the middle of a shitshow, but completely at peace. We’re trying to recreate that portal."
The Ecstasy Of will feature artwork exclusively by Sydney’s Robby Bennett, with each single featuring five limited edition prints of the the raw cover art for sale, available via the Phondupe BANDCAMP page.
