As Artificial Intelligence’s boundary-pushing Integral Records continues to celebrate its tenth year of delivering world class liquid funk and future soul to the drum & bass masses, Philth and Phil Tangent surface with an epic four-track EP that is out of this world. Designed to debut their newly minted Phil:osophy moniker, the duo’s Heavy Hearts EP is a stunning exploration and celebration of all the subtle flavors the heavier side of the liquid funk subgenre is capable of.
Searching for some soul-cleansing dancefloor journeying? Head straight to “Dissipate” and “Remember” as Phil:osophy bring on the shivers with expertly crafted grooves that bring together elements of future soul and tech-driven atmospheres that are destined to lay the foundation for all that’s still to come.
If you like your beats with a little more bite, head straight to “Wednesday’s Child” and “Heavy Hearts” as both bits bust out the darkness but do it in a way that still effortlessly features goosebump-inducing vocals and an ever-evolving structure that keeps things grounded no matter how rough or smooth the dancefloor. Swirling atmospheres, well-placed stabs, and a growling bottom end provide the perfect frame for an absolutely stunning debut EP.
File under “music for the mind, body and soul” and be sure to buy on sight. This one hits the streets October 6 so lock your preorder in here.
