OWSLA previews Phonat’s ‘Ride the Prejudice’ off new EP
Italian minimal glitch artist Phonat continues to demonstrate why Skrillex declared him the most underrated producer in the world. With his Identity Theft EP slated for a June 4th release on OWSLA, the eclectic producer elected to give the world a preview of what’s in store.
“Ride the Prejudice” is about as clean as it gets production-wise, opening with a flurry of divergent samples while a warm synth throbs its way through a glitchy stuttered backbeat. The tracks kicks into another gear as a pitched up vocal sample appears alongside restrained video game bloops and schizophrenic hi-hats. If this track is any indication, Phonat’s laudable attention to sonic detail should elevate his forthcoming EP into rarified air.
