'Listening To Old West Coast Rap' is not not a bad activity at all. It's also the title to Phasen's latest album on I ,Absentee. Phasen is the pseudonym of Orlando, Florida producer Ryan Palmer. The album has a fine chilled vibe with acidic squelches and lush spacey synths. There is a bit of a quirky feel at times that recalls Plaid or possibly even Luke Vibert where the sounds blur the lines between electronics, techno, house and hip hop with some of the acid lines making me think of old G-Funk records from Dr Dre and Co. All quality melodic, playfull and charming electronica that' s arrived just in time for summer. Most pleasing.
