Discodromo's "Boi" makes the ceiling drip on Phonica compilation


Opened in 2003, London’s most regarded dance emporium/label, Phonica Records, is set to release a 33-track compilation to mark their first decade. Ten Years of Phonica features new and old masters, cult favorites, and party virtuosos, including Berlin based Italians, Discodromo. Known equally for their queer night, CockTail d’Amore, and regular appearances at Berlin’s Panorama Bar, this duo drops disco-inclined gems to onslaughts of dark tech house with a devotion to the dance floor.

“Boi” verges closer to Discodromo’s sinister house side. Delayed, atmospheric synths, foggy and frigid as dry ice, smear atop a rummaging and reverberating bassline. The track’s murkiness is deepened with downcast murmurs, waning more wistful still by a swirl of cathedral chorals. Made for night's lost hours, “Boi” falls between the cracks of deviance and repentance, beginning in an abrasive pound, floating upwards, but ultimately keeping us grappled to a soiled grind.

Strong and diverse artists like Discodromo are what will make Ten Years of Phonica a future classic, out on vinyl, digital, and CD February 17th
