Time for Number 7 in our sporadic Record Label Profiles series. This time, step forward Erol Alkan and Phantasy Sound.
If you don’t know Erol by now we might as well give up. But just in case: indie / electro DJ for 15-odd years, man behind London’s legendary Trash night for a decade, remixer of Franz, Hot Chip, Klaxons, Justice, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and many more. Pyschedelic warrior as Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve. Producer on Mystery Jets’ ‘Twenty One’ and Late Of The Pier’s ‘Fantasy Black Channel’ and now record label owner.
He’s stumbled into our sphere on the Daily Download a few times already (most noticeably with the specially-commissioned mix during the Klaxons Takeover) but without further ado here’s his favourite bits on his label right now.
First up, ‘Engine’ from Sam Late Of The Pier Dust’s side project LA Priest, as remixed by the man himself. Then a couple of Connan Mockasin tracks before my favourite pick, a mental mix of Boys Noize / Erol’s own ‘Lemonade’, and man-of-the-moment Chilly Gonzales.
Finally, Brazilian instrumental / electronic genius Babe Terror, an interesting new proposition who’s already starting picking up remixes from the likes of Memory Tapes and Four Tet. Let us know what you think of the tracks.
