As soon as the piano melody starts on opening track “The Fourth World”, followed by a smeary drum loop, you know which direction The Phantom Record will be taking you. The EP is a sophomore collaboration between Hard Jazz 7 founder Orion (London, UK) and beatmaker/pianist/DJ Kazumi Kaneda (Tokyo, Japan).
They just released the instrumental track “The Fourth World”, preceding the full release this Sunday. The full EP will be up for stream below as soon as it drops:
“The 4-track project is themed after Orion’s dreams of record digging for rarities, only to wake up abruptly without the music he remembered buying while sleeping.” – Hard Jazz
