The man. The machine. The Legend. Phace is one of those Drum and Bass producers with a sound design that you can identify from anywhere from the clubs to festivals. No one has made it more clear in terms of sound design in the Drum and Bass scene that they are not messing about in the slightest. I was first put onto phace probably from their Energie EP with partner in crime Misanthrop. His technical abilities truly transcend whats capable from humans in electronic music.
Phace has returned with another smasher titled ” So Excited ” a show thrower of a tune that reflects on all to common nightlife scenarios with a aggressive and smashing twist.
“So Excited” starts off with a quizzical display of vocal samples that question the listeners nightlife choices. Well if your feeling down don’t worry because Phace is here to change that. The tune quickly goes into a fist full of Phace’s signature synths resembling an robotic stampede pummeling into the soundscape as ” Drop it Hard” comes into the foreground literally dropping into a machine gun assault of laser sharp reece bass stabs throwing listeners into a full on frenzy of energy. The the cuts to half time at the break with a hard head nodding sound.
Overall for me this is quintessential DJ material and is sure to set fire to the dance in any circumstance. Phace shows once more he has zero plans on lightening up his diabolical and technical Drum And Bass.
