The Phantom follws last year’s smash EP with his debut vinyl release pays tribute to Wiley’s beatless Devil mixes from grime’s golden age but updates it with cinematic tropical flair.

Project Info: Synesthesia = Five Years // Five Senses
Celebrating five years of international bass exploration Senseless Records presents Synesthesia: a vivid spectrum of colours, shapes and textures drawn together into two pallets, one sonic and one visual to create five very special releases; a series of strictly ltd. Edition (of 250) 12" records with hand screen printed sleeves and an art print insert created by an exciting collection of international visual artists, each offering their take on one of the five senses. Cutting edge bass on each release from Senseless artists, new discoveries and legendary producers who have inspired the label. Confirmed contributors include Poirier, Rossi B & Luca, Oris J, Stereotyp, Cardopusher, Pacheko, DJ Eastwood, Phantom and JTRP but we'll announce the full line up for each record only as each is released.
Summer 2011 marks five years of Senseless Records, five years since the soundsystem culture of Leeds, UK inspired Sarantis to press up his first white label grime EP. In that time we've searched the UK and far beyond for international heat reaching out from Warsaw to Caracas. We've released almost twenty EPs and two albums of technicolour bass music from an extended family of artists including vocalists like Max Romeo, Warrior Queen, Badness, Foreign Beggars and YT and producers like Jack Sparrow, Starkey, Ghosttown, Phantom, Kanji Kinetic, Brackles, MRK1, Pocz & Pacheko and many more.
