"REVIEW | PHILOSOPHY OF SOUND – ‘FRAGILE DISCO’ EP"

If you thought Disco was dead it was probably because you haven’t heard of Melbourne duo “Philosophy Of Sound”. Their EP “Fragile Disco” is one of the best dance releases of 2012.

Opening with “It Is Like That” it is kicked of with great samples funky guitar riffs and bass lines which could only be played by a black guy. P.O.S display a whole range of great synth sounds from harsh bass and cords to beautiful and melodic pads and strings. “It Is Like This” is definitely one of the strongest ways to kick off the EP as well as any club or DJ set.

The title track from the EP would have to be my favorite from the lot. Showing off an array of different phasing synths, twangy funk riffs, driving bass lines and hard hitting drums it is a perfect balance and sits so well. The driving force from the bass line is such a great and well constructed line. Very simple yet so funk filled and perfect for the track.

The EP also features remix’s as well as reworks of previously recorded pieces. It features remixes from Ilya Santana and A.N.D.Y. Remixing P.O.S’s tracks “It Is Like That” and “Freedom, What For?” they add such a great feel to the EP and really break it up from hard hitting dance tunes nicely.

The rework of “Freedom, What For?” works so well and although I never had an opportunity to listen to the original I really don’t feel like I miss out. I love the use of 80’s references of television and internet in british accents just makes it sound so sexy and funky. It is a great way to kick off the B Side of the EP.

I love of the EP is a perfect mirror image with it’s self on either side of the vinyl you start with a vocal sampled track featuring vocal artists. It continues to a great dance track suitable for any club or disco in the form of “Fragile Disco” and “Younger Lover” and finishes with a spreading of love for remixes from guest artists. All up the EP is a must have for DJ’s and for any party, full of funk and sexiness.

The new release – ‘Fragile Disco’ EP is out now on Discotexas on 12? red vinyl & digital formats! http://www.philosophyofsound.info/

Bio

Over the past few years, while many on the planet have been searching for meaning amongst the chaos, Australian duo Philosophy Of Sound have found their footing in music, steadily building a following for their own brand of conscious electronic music. In September 2012 they released their debut EP ‘Fragile Disco’ EP, on 12” vinyl, CD and digital download in through a Portugal based label Discotexas.

Springing to life less than 2 years ago, the project was originally the brainchild of Martin K, however when he and producer John Salmon got to mixing stage of the early recordings, the chemistry in the studio was undeniable, so the two decided that they would collaborate.

Polish born, now Melbourne based Martin K is a philosopher turned music producer who has spent the last few years producing music videos, film soundtracks, podcasts and in the studio with various international electronic and dance artists. Under the moniker ‘Koshowko’ he released tunes on Clan Analogue and Las Machinas as well as performed live at Renaissance Festival, Opoeia Festival, Electundra, St Kilda Festival in Australia and a tour across Germany. Martin was also a finalist of The International Songwriting Competition in the Dance category in 2009 and his music videos have also been screened around the globe in a selection of Film and Music Video Festivals.

Backed by a degree in Sound Art, John Salmon has been active in the music biz for almost ten years. As a live electronic artist under the name Freeform Human he has toured Australia, Russia, Finland, Belgium and Slovakia and has an established catalogue of releases including tracks on compilations released in Australia, Russia and France as well as releases on his own Gi’iwa Productions label. Taking on the role of tour manager, he has looked after the likes of Talpa (Ser) and Gappeq (CZ) but out of all of his happenings to date, his purest talent with music come out best in the studio.

The first single ‘It Is Like That’ features vocals by New York based Mereki Beach (ex member of the Peacocks), live bass by James Thompson (The Moonhops) and funky disco guitar by Brian Westbrook (Secret Masters). Originally released by Portuguese label Discotexas in September 2011, including a remix by Ilya Santana (Eskimo Records), the original mix and a video. The track was a ‘staff pick’ on Beatport and immediately debuted on various charts. Licenses have seen the single appear on various mixtapes by the likes of Mustang, Tronik Youth and Mighty Mouse, with strong support from the DJ network globally. Featured on ‘Fragile Disco’ EP is an extended, never before released version as well as a remix done by Ilya Santana, a Spanish nu-disco master and one of the most established international producers of this style. This version has spent several weeks on Beatport’s Nu-disco top 20 sales charts.

The second single ‘Freedom, what for?’ which delivers not only food for the feet but also for thought, raises the bar in conscious dance music lyrics. The song features lead vocals by Magnolia and again funky disco guitar courtesy of Brian Westbrook. Lyrically the song references ‘Po Co Wolnosc’ by the Polish artist KULT, which are one of Martin’s favourite rock bands. When the single was released in March 2012 through Discotexas, accompanied with remixes by Tronik Youth and A.N.D.Y. (Andy Faisca, ex-Mustang) and an ultra-cool video with world first interactive elements, once again the DJ community stood up and took notice. It spent 4 weeks in Beatport’s ‘top 30’ sales chart. The previously unreleased reworked mix that features on ‘Fragile Disco’ EP takes the best elements of the original mix and adds more disco oriented elements. The EP also features the cracking A.N.D.Y. Remix.

Their song ’Fragile Disco’ promoting the recent EP is an epic indie dance track featuring a synth line from Danish classical composer/ pianist Ben De Murashkin and the mysterious electric guitar talents of g-Quantum. Martin K played all the other instruments and also contributed some backing whispers to the track. A remix of the track by Sydney based label mates Coupons has been also produced and is given away as a ‘free download’ from the P.O.S Soundcloud site. A new music video has been produced and is currently enjoying extensive airplay on ABC TV Rage, including being selected for ABC TV’s online streaming system (iview). The video features P.O.S performing the song with a collection of innovative visual music production tools, including several iPad apps.

Capping off what has been a massive 6 months in the studio getting the EP ready, P.O.S have also just completed a rework of Leonard Cohen’s song ‘By The Rivers Dark’ which was met with a huge acclaim from international music blogs. On top of that they produced a remix of ‘Cairo’ by the Polish marvels Kamp! - one of the biggest electronic hits of 2011 - for ‘Discotexas' Bucket of Love Vol. 2’ album and an exclusive track ‘Ugliest Twenties’ with lyrics writte
