about

Astrophonica proudly presents “Philip D Kick – Pathways” and we’ll start by passing you straight over to Label boss Fracture...

“This is really a special record for Astrophonica. It could be argued that Jim Coles aka Om Unit’s Philip D Kick alias spawned an entire movement which dictated the sound of future. The three Philip D Kick ‘Footwork Jungle’ EPs released in 2011 saw Jim take classic Jungle anthems and footwork them. At the time, this was mind-blowing, I’d never heard anything like it. Even though I had been checking for Footwork and of course, have a history and love for Jungle. These edits spawned a generation of younger producers and revitalised older producers like myself. It also bought Jim and I together as friends and later on collaborators. So it is with great pleasure and genuine excitement that I present to you Philip D Kick’s first original material – Pathways.”

And now over to the man himself for a few words… Philip D Kick, Jim, Om Unit…

"I decided once I was done with my Om Unit ‘Self' project that I wanted to have some real fun with breaks again, and something drew me back to working at 160bpm, I wanted to make some more fun light-hearted stuff, and so I felt like returning to the Philip project would be a nice way of not only re-visiting something that was such a vibe back in the day but also now that all the fuss around so called 'jungle footwork' as a 'thing' has died down."

Pathways opens with ‘In Formation’ which sets off with familiar breaks before descending into uncharted Acid Footwork Jungle territory. ‘Work That’ traces the 4/4 UK hardcore lineage to plot a new course for the dance floor. ’Drown’ draws energy from drum-funk to discover an ethereal breakdown that leads to a sound killing Amen finale. Two worlds collide on the same course in ’Vibe Off’ with Chicago based Footwork pioneer DJ Spinn claiming he’s vibing off the beat and honestly, who can blame him? ’For Real’ is a fitting ending to Pathways. A lights out and headphones on journey from moody drum machine rhythms to euphoric synth lines.

Pathways is released 1st June 2018 on Limited Edition 12” & Digital with Limited Edition A3 Risograph prints, and Limited Edition T-shirts with DTG oversize prints on US-Import Tees. As always big shout Utile Creative (and Philip D Kick’s Reebok Classics) for the artwork.
