Fuga Ronto «Invisible Escape»
Phantom Island's founders Kejeblos, Lexx and Foster all delivered the goods over the last two years of the young Swiss label's existence. Now the fourth incorporator Ron Shiller, who’s also responsible for renowned Zurich imprint Drumpoet Community, teams up with his longstanding friend Foster for this delicate endeavour. Releasing music years ago with Soultourist the twosome seems to work magic. Over months they brought their new project Fuga Ronto painstakingly to simmer. You literally can hear how rigorously they tinkered around with these five precious tracks at hand to form a story-telling, mood-setting unity. The intentional eclecticism and the adept on-point beat savviness is the common theme and makes it utterly hard to put a finger on Fuga Ronto's music. From ambrosial downbeat dubbed-out to the max (“Camel Ride”) to appeasing guitar licks, original Swiss cowbells and inspirational words (“Daydreams”) as well as a bunch of carefree anything-can-happen-mentality (“Journey Unknown”) and phoneticized Italian poetry (“L'Uomo Invisibile”) you can find the best Phantom Island has to offer on “Invisible Escape”.
