Erol Alkan: “Automatic”

Erol Alkan: “Automatic”

The 100th release on Phantasy Sound comes by label boss Erol Alkan.

Erol Alkan’s “Automatic” celebrates and anticipates resurgent dancefloor abandon.

The landmark 100th single on Phantasy arrives courtesy of label founder, DJ and producer Erol Alkan. Originally recorded less than a year after Phantasy’s inception in 2007, “Automatic” arrives in 2021 to both celebrate and anticipate resurgent dancefloor abandon, blending elements of French touch and disco psychedelia with driving, raw percussion, as charismatic and gloriously high-energy as anything from Alkan’s extensive back catalogue of productions and remixes.

In his own words: “I spent some of lockdown revisiting music I’d made that I had almost forgotten had existed, looking for projects that might be worth another look. Although I originally recorded it around 2008, ‘Automatic’ immediately shone through as a track that was a perfect distillation of many of the records that had influenced me from around then, as well as something I’d have played in a dark, sweaty club in 2020 or 2021, given the opportunity. There is a certain symmetry and arc of the then into now, which made it feel like the perfect record to release as the 100th single. It feels like a natural celebration of a part of Phantasy’s sound and sensibilities running from our beginning and into our future.”
