Glossy Center

“‘Glossy Center’ reveals two tracks that maintains that same bass weight, while blossoming into the sort of arrangements that would render cyborgs dewy-eyed with unprogrammed emotion. Meanwhile, a club interpretation from Kim Ann Foxman, a linchpin of club culture in both the US and Europe, is singularly weaponised to melt their synthetic brains. Out digitally on 20th May.

On the title track, Wilted Woman’s spacious, analogue arrangement conjures a refreshing kind of machine-funk that flirts between the motorik grit of Detroit machinery and glistening kosmische with dreamy effect. In contrast, Kim Ann Foxman comfortably bursts a dam of serotonin for her take on ‘Glossy Center’, working in pure strains of trance and rave to deliriously enthusiastic effect.

Composed with equal sensitivity, ‘Close To Stone’ offers a chance to decompress, catching waves of spectral frequencies from Wilted Woman’s studio that seem to disintegrate leaving traces of bittersweet melody. Perhaps the most outright soothing track in Davis’ impressive back-catalogue, it underscores a thrilling return to Phantasy.”
