Competition: Sub Club Pres. Phantasy Sound W/ Erol Alkan
COMPETITION: Sub Club Pres. Phantasy Sound W/ Erol Alkan
It’s fairly easy to get overly emphatic about Erol Alkan’s influence on modern club music. From his legendary Indie Disco, Trash to career defining remixes and reworks for Justice, Franz Ferdinand and more recently, Metronomy and Tame Impala, Erol has become one of those living-entities who will always be right at the forefront of what is considered exciting. Becoming somewhat of a DJ’s DJ, his legacy has made him one of the dance world’s biggest names, proved unquestionably when Mixmag named him DJ of the year in 2006. Other accolades have included supporting Daft Punk at Global Gathering at their own request and of course producing records for the likes of Klaxons and Late Of The Pier. But it’s his ability to move with the times while staying true to his roots which has made him so popular, and that will certainly be self-evident this Friday at the Sub Club.
Showcasing his achingly slick Phantasy Sound label with the help of rising talent Daniel Avery, this will be his debut appearance at the world-renowned venue, in what will undoubtedly be a special night for all involved. Launching in 2007, Phantasy Sound quickly fulfilled the expectations of his enormous fan base, but most importantly became the necessary outlet Erol needed to share his passion.
Far from just a club label putting out club singles, Phantasy has been responsible for some truly inspiring records, including Connan Mockasin’s stunning ‘Forever Dolphin Love’. An imprint defined by Erol’s diverse and inclusive background, its back catalogue can boast some of the most intriguing (and yes, damaging) releases of the last five years. New addition Daniel Avery being a perfect example, with his ‘Need Electric EP’ striking all the right chords for House and Techno heads alike. With a Fabric Live Mix incoming and a reputation for exceptional skill behind the decks, there could be no one better to ignite the floor this Friday…
