Phil Kieran Makes His Debut For NovaMute

Recent productions have seen Kieran team up with Funk D'Void, releasing three singles on Soma Recordings which have combined acid-house nostalgia with flinty, broken-beats. Now Phil Kieran makes his full artist debut for NovaMute.

On 'Skyhook 1' Kieran manages to produce another masterpiece of dark, minimal glitchy techno fused with off-kilter beats, twisted atmospherics, dirty old school Chicago riffs and of course, all mixed up with a heavy dose of bass to ensure it will be a club favourite for 2007. 'Skyhook 2' brings in some electro styled breaks as a slamming EBM companion and finally 'Greasepaint' is a tough, dubbed out affair full of brooding menace to take you into the darkest corners of the dancefloor.

Phil Kieran (aka Alloy Mental) should by now need little introduction. With numerous releases and remixes for the likes of Kingsize, Soma, Skint, Bugged Out, Shine, Loaded, Tronic and Yoshitoshi he never fails to deliver a dose of head-imploding basslines, skiffling glitches and an injection of razor sharp electronics. His remixes of Motor's '1X1' , Nitzer Ebb's 'Murderous', 'Blitzkreig Pop' by T. Raumschmiere and Agoria's 'La 11'eme Marche' highlight his recognisable, dancefloor driven style, evident yet again on his debut release for novamute, the 'Skyhook EP'.

Bonus mix 'Skyhook 3' is available via Beatport only.
