Salt & Pepper
Phonogramme, the house subdivision of parent label and integral Parisian record shop Syncrophone dedicates itself directly to the French music scene, with previous releases from the likes of Professor Inc, John Jastszebski, Aleqs Notal and a handful of other local heads. Phonogramme continues to keep things close-to-home through the labels next edition presented by Gibs, who’s most notably known for works on his own imprint, ‘An.Art Records’ – a family run label with music shared by himself and his two brothers.
‘Find an Oasis’ kicks off the release with rolling organic percussion before progressing elegantly into layered emotive lead synths and mellow bass stabs. ‘Jarkarta’ is a subdued deeper house cut, filled with an uplifting, undulating melody and raw lo-fi elements collectively creating a luscious calming effect. Last up, ‘Der Germain’ offers up a fluid, groove filled number balanced with charming, jazzy flutters and tender keys providing a warm, breezy atmosphere to the end the release.
