Phoelix has been a homie of us here at POD for a while now and after seeing him play live for Eryn Allen Kane and Noname, along with his contributing to projects by the latter plus Saba and Smino, peppering in solo releases here and there, we are glad to share with y’all today his debut EP, GSPL. The 7-track effort is the result of this artist/producer’s massive growth in his still relatively young career, bearing the fruits of his creativity for all to hear.
The experimental production here is a real highlight, mixing Industrial and other futuristic elements with the genre that provides the project its namesake, Phoelix elevates his game to greater heights as he turns into the protagonist now and takes a well-deserved leap into the spotlight. “Red Beans & Rice,” “Heartless Sonata,” and “Half & Half” are some of the gems you’ll find here.
Hear GSPL below.
