The first release on Phonica’s newly founded label Phonica AM, curated by staff member Luther Vine, is set to drop in September to ring in some musical autumn madness in four acts. Responsible for the latter is artist duo and label heads of an eponymous imprint Voodoos and Taboos, who deliver a four-tracker that smoothly combines influences across genres, such as (Tech-) House, 90s Breaks and Techno/Electro. The EP’s title track, If We Were, comes in with a partly jacking House groove that’s compressing character adds a futuristic note as it sounds like one would imagine beats in space that are staggered transmitted. Provided with a spacey and recurring chord sequence as well as supporting pads If We Were is a worthy way to create those early morning vibes on dance floors pooling those emotions that emerge at this specific time in one track – a quality Phonica AM has dedicated itself to as the label name already suggests and Voodoos and Taboos perfectly turn into practice with this track and EP
Voodoos and Taboos’ EP If We Were will be released on Phonica AM on September 3rd, 2021.
