spa.RK first vinyl release could be no other than the vinyl debut of young American artist Phluidbox. “Alter EP” (sp5) is a box of surprises filled of broken rhythms, dubby atmospheres and enchanting melodies: devastating electronic dub, tunes full of breakbeats, clicks and bleeps, heartfelt landscapism and intense emotion. Pressed in luxurious 160 gr vinyl with a printed cardboard cover, is sold-out.
“Busily precise electronic music (…). For Fitzpatrick’s first release as Phluidbox, These Found Habits is very strong and should place him on the list of artists to look out for in the future.” Paul Lloyd. Igloo Mag.
“I am quite optimistic as I listen to the next release by Phluidbox “these found habits ep”. This is a mix between harder Mouse on Mars stuff (the distorted layers of sounds that sound a bit like a my bloody valentine guitar and the lively rhythms) and a bit rougher Arovane. I also think of the dancier stuff on Suction records. On the other hand he also gets quite friendly and calm as he stops the beats completely in the last track. Very good debut.” René Malgraff.
