Next up on Phantasy comes Cowboy Rhythmbox

Share

Outsider house misfits Cowboy Rhythmbox, return to Phantasy with a tri-pronged blitzkrieg of wildly singular tracks.

The lead track ‘Tanz Exotique’ is a pan global orgy of recondite sound sources, perhaps one of the most extreme examples of CBRB’s multifarious approach to date. Superlative 25th century electronic exotica.

Second up is ‘Cats’ Invasion’ which is a stark, glacial and sleazy lesson in poise, restraint and excess. Lysergic synthesizer motifs, deep breathing, and serious sense of menace ride a pleasingly rawboned rhythm. Music for darkrooms on interstellar pleasure cruisers and finally ‘Scream’ is a revved-up industrial beast of a track. Primal, animalistic vocals conspire with dub percussion and a sinister acidic arpeggio. A symphony of gut-level grit and abrasive alchemy.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
