This new Frank B track goes hard. It’s taken from a cassette/download compilation called WHEREIIDANCE Vol.1 from Brighton based label Where To Now? which will also feature the likes of U, Lumigraph, Tuff Sherm, and Boya. ‘Phosphenes’ is a rough shaker, the kind of tune that’s perfect for a cassette. It sounds vaguely distant, dynamically repressed (though it may just be ripped from the tape or deliberately lo-fi) and nods to the kind of mixes you might have found on an untitled blank tape in the mid-’90s.

After news of last week’s 12″ release for ‘Chain Of Fools’, comes Frank B’s remix of White Collar Boy’s new tune ‘SUUU’ which will feature on WCB’s new Bodytonic-released EP on vinyl on july 29th and digital on August 12th. Frank’s remix features thudding beats and sprightly synth lines in a hypnotic five minutes, reminscent of an dancefloor edit of AFX or The Orb to my ears. Lovely track.
One of the tunes of 2012 is getting a belated 12″ vinyl release. Frank B’s ‘Chain Of Fools’ , which samples Aretha Franklin’s track of the same name is coming out in under two weeks on white label. The 12″ comes with two remixes from Lumigraph. Purchase links here and samples here.
