Mind-expanding house and warm electronic ambience transmit with pacifying effect, and Uone juxtaposes momentsof solitude and calm with a spiritual groove to preach a righteous truth. It'san organic sound, one leathered in the sun and rinsed in the open plain rivers.
Provocative guitars, harmonicas and indiscriminate field recordings are pulled together by the outlaw's call card: a clear, crystallised frequency; a whistle born during cold nights next to warmcampfires. Make no mistake: this right here is an aural tonic, a soundtrack tothe greatest medicine ceremony ever assembled.
Creative. Absorbing. Totally neoteric.
Mixed by Australian engineering legend Danny Bonniciin Dolby Atmos, a revolutionary spatial audio technology for the most immersive sound experience, the Phantom Whistler LP will unfurl itself over the course of three months: a new chapter every 3 weeks.
Alongside the album a collection of music videos and animations will accompany created by Australia's leading projection artist NickAzidis: expect a pastiche filled mood, with atmospheric transformations, nostalgia, and abstract forms. This is more than music, it'san artistic manifesto brave enough to buck the trend.
As the Phantom Whistler rides his trusty stead into a fantastic future, a captivating message is left behind: Dull the noise and find sanctuary in yourself. To find the treasure within, fuse with your inner beat to synchronise with the universal
groove. Travel light my friend, rap yourself in anticipation, and submit to 2023's most audacious release.
