Phantasy are proud to release the title track and centerpiece from Daniel Avery’s hugely acclaimed “Drone Logic” album; a swirling, hypnotic mass of modern techno accompanied by three remixes from some of the most important electronic artists around. A huge amount of mutual admiration between the two acts led to Factory Floor remixing Avery in typically driving and astounding fashion; Matthew Dear dons his Audion mask to remake “Need Electric” and prove why he remains the king of that breathless, late-night sound whilst Matt Walsh, boss of the hugely exciting Clouded Vision label, applies his effortlessly stylish techno workings to “Free Floating” to complete the package.
The debut album appeared in a diverse range of end-of-year polls including The Times, Quietus, Q, Resident Adviser, Mojo, Data Transmission, Mixmag and DJ. Additionally, Guardian readers voted it their number 2 album of the year and Rough Trade Shops placed it at number 4 in their albums of the year!
