DJ Phantasy is set to drop his ‘Generations’ LP
Following on from a crazy three generations on the Drum n Bass circuit, legendary figure in the scene DJ Phantasy, who is also a key member of supergroup SASASAS, is soon to release his next album, ‘Generations’. This album includes collaborations with some of the hottest talents in both the Drum & Bass and the EDM worlds, drops on 26th June.
‘Generations’ is a 10-track-package with collabs with Murdock, Ben Snow, Macky Gee, Ragga Twins and Doktor, as well as some solo numbers destined to propel Phantasy’s career even further. Ahead of the ‘Generations’ album release date, DJ Phantasy will be giving his fans a taste of what’s to come with the release of ‘Tell Me’ with TC Ft. Cammie Robinson which dropped on 29th May and ‘Never Letting Go’ with Murdock on the 12th June.
A more commercial leaning track, ‘Tell Me’ features soulful vocal hooks from Cammie Robinson, whilst DJ Phantasy and TC add their perfected production with fiery synths and massive bass to make it a danceable yet emotive track.
In contrast, jump up weapon and collaboration with Murdock, ‘Never Letting Go’ features beautiful vocal chops which soar over a ferocious drum pattern to leave you wanting more from the duo.
The whole album is a wonderful mix of styles and the energy it emits is crazy!
Since the birth of Drum & Bass 3 decades ago, Phantasy has been and is still at the top of his game and the scene he has helped shape over the years. He was one of the first DJs to release his own music and has produced some of the biggest underground Drum & Bass singles in history, including his track ‘Animal’ with Harry Shotta which beat Eminem’s Guinness World Record for the most words in a song. A record that still stands today. He has also held almost every job in the music industry so his knowledge is vast and incomparable with almost anyone and everyone else.
Following on from the release of his book last year, ‘Three Generations Deep’ which he wrote with Dave Jenkins and documents his life in dance music and his career which has spanned over 30 years, this album once again reminds us of Phantasy’s legacy that has been a foundation for the scene to build up till today. If you haven’t read ‘Three Generations Deep’ yet, then I highly recommend you do! It’s insightful, educational, eye-opening and jaw-dropping in parts, hands down one of the best books I’ve read this year and Steve is one of the nicest guys on the scene.
