The Cosmos EP
£0.90 – £4.30
Following on from the success of his LTD debut early last year, Philth is back on Dispatch, for the main label this time, with a first EP entitled ‘The Cosmos’.
The attention to detail is instantly notable from Philth’s output and much like the cosmos itself, very complex entities are carefully controlled and manipulated for maximum effect. Despite the destruction each track causes on the dancefloor, they are also composed, with the master in charge consciously aware of every element.
‘The Hunted’ sets this off as Philth collaborates with Belgian producer Bredren for a shadowy, sinister encounter, delivered with haunting with atmospherics and a fierce progression that continues to gather momentum.
‘Incantation’ is an industrial stepper that hits hard on the bottom end, with London based Agman Gora featuring on vocals, with techy mids smearing across in signature Philth style. Title track ‘Cosmos’ is marked by an intro of epic proportions, as orchestral elements coincide, building anticipation to cinematic levels; a perfect set opener.
Philth also links up with Nottingham based P-Fine on vocals to form a deadly combination on the mighty ‘Greed’, alongside an added Dub Mix as well. Concluding the EP is ‘Souzou VIP’. The original featured on his Dispatch LTD single last year) and the VIP twists this into oblivion, with drum switch ups that bring Souzou’s original soul back into focus for this 2015 release.
