Gareth Psaltis’s Voriulk EP was one of my favourite dance releases of last year, so it’s interesting to hear him bounce ideas off a collaborator in this newish sideproject. phile. is Psaltis with Hannah Lockwood, and together they create muted techno with a slightly brighter approach compared to Psaltis’s solo material. It’s still pretty dour, but you know, Voriulk is one of the most oppressive records I’ve heard in a very long time.
It’s worth rifling through the phile. Soundcloud account for two other extended live sets, with the beatless Outer Space track a beatless highlight.
