Following on from his debut hit Real Joy, which was heavily supported by the likes of Annie Mac, Todd Edwards and Zane Lowe, and the impeccable follow up Everybody Knows, Brighton producer Fono is releasing his debut 5-track EP ‘Kinetic’ on Polydor Records.
Opening track CLOUD 9provides a smooth introduction to the EP with reverb’ed female vocals from Australian singer, E^ST whosevocals float on top of modulating piano melodies and house beats, with Fono’s signature synth sounds later entering the track. The more up-tempo Feet On The Ground is armed with bouncy synth chords, club-facing beats and soaring female vocals, playing true testament to the EP’s title.
Levitateis an amalgamation of catchy hi-hats, booming bass lines and jumpy synth melodies, whilst NRG is punctuated by buzzy synth chords which compliment the pitched down vocals and drive the track as the infectious synth hooks push it over the edge into a plethora of infectious club grooves. Providing a polished finale to the EP, final track Light Upfeatures the male vocals of D/C whose smooth vocals provide the perfect counterpoint to the low-end grooves.
