Drumsound & Bassline Smith don’t open the books very often, but, fresh for 2017, they have a brand new exclusive signing to report. For them to add to the elite Technique Recordings roster alongside artists like Tantrum Desire, L Plus and Document One means they’ve found something special. And, in this case, that something comes in the form of T Phonic & Deadman, about to make their mark with their debut release “Scare Tactics” / “Reflections VIP”.
Of course, the Technique faithful will already know this production duo from euphoric, sunlit tracks like “Show Me the Way” and the Radio 1, Kiss and Apple Music-supported “Reflections”. But, although those tunes mark the beginning of their collaboration, these two producers’ musical roots go a lot deeper, and way more eclectic.
T Phonic is only the latest in a long line of Doctor Who-style regenerations. His accomplishments have been as diverse as collaborating with Sigma, releasing on labels like Viper and Titan, featuring on a 200,000-selling compilation, garnering support from deejays ranging from Hype to Fearne Cotton... And that only just scratches the surface.
Then we have Deadman, with another packed award winning CV. Mid-nineties whistle and horn crew may well be more familiar with his hardcore alter ego, DJ/Al Storm. Or, maybe you know him from his bass & breaks personae Eat Rave or Black & White. Taken altogether, it’s an array of credits to make any producer jealous.
So, even though the T Phonic & Deadman team-up is relatively recent, these two artists are proper, battle-hardened veterans. Excitingly, they’ve each carved their own path, and the the concoction of their disparate musical journeys is bound to be powerful. We’ve had a small taste so far, but now that they’ve signed to Technique exclusively the countdown is on. Get set for the detonation. T Phonic & Deadman are here.
