phil-gerus

These cuts sound a bit dated compared to his new work. When I say “dated” I don’t mean that in a sour way, but rather more mellow nu disco where as his latest release is a silky sexy mix of 80’s synth soul as if Al B Sure worked on track, put it away and it now just saw the day of light. Phil Gerus hails from Moscow. Fusing mellow beats over low fi drum and synths that are straight out of the opening credits of an 80’s flick.  Vocals sound like samples but man this is some heat!  Unfortunately I cant find any new videos but this is a great intro into his sound.  You can check out more of his sounds here.
You can also hear him on this past Monday’s KCRW show.  Take a listen.
