Product Notes

The latest release from eclectic artist Phontaine. 'Imagine a craftsman that re-imagines music and presents it in new ways: that's Phontaine. Although I don't fully understand the world of remixing, it's clear to me that this album took more than just a great set of ears to create. A true craftsman not only understands how to use his tools but also when NOT to use them. That's Phontaine: less is more.' Tim Tamashiro, Host TONIC, CBC Radio 2 Bibliotec features 4 vocalists adding their styles to phontaine's smooth and retro grooves. There are hints of the 1950's and 70's blended in a sonic journey of fresh tones. Phontaine even makes a banjo sound sexy. As heard on The O.C, Dirt, Without a trace, IMAX Sacred Planet,Las Vegas, Tru Calling. BIO Born in Brighton, England and now hailing from Western Canada, Phontaine released 'aqui' in late 2001 under the name 'earball'. The appeal of the album reached all over the globe. 'I just tried to make something familiar but fresh, something I'd like to listen to'. Phontaine doesn't take a conventional approach to creating music; ' I don't listen to music as most people do, I've always absorbed tones and timbres before notes and arrangement. I blend instruments, ambience and sounds and maintain the sonic quality of their era. I hope this brings a sense of nostalgia to the listener.' 'It's electronic music for sure, but less abrasive than alot of the stuff out there, I want it to sound as warm and authentic as possible, like warm 70's electronic music but with some new modern tones mixed in.' After the indie success of 'aqui', Phontaine had songs released on the compilations 'Blue Light One' (Upstairs Recordings/Nettwerk) and 'Global Groove'(Sugo Music) alongside peers Thievery Corporation.
