Jon Phonics "Face of Spades"
In the hands of Jon Phonics, the funk is very much still alive. The London transplant—who also runs the Astral Black label/club night—is set to issue his White Neckle EP next week, from which "Face of Spades" has been pulled. Spanning over just two minutes, the track is led by a walking bassline, which sags just behind the tune's slightly skittered drum programming. To this base, the producer adds thick analog chords, which pulse and swell languidly around the funk-swung beat. Set to be appear in 7" vinyl form, Jon Phonics' White Neckle EP is out on July 7 via the First Word label.
