For you Boom Bap, Synth heads... Don't sleep on this release from Jon Phonics! You can pick this up on Itunes etc.. Google that shit!
From making his name through his work with a host of the UK’s best rappers, Producer/DJ Jon Phonics has since seen his style evolve to encompass 2step, boogie, expressive synth leads and calculated drums while still finding time to channel the spirit of Godfather Don.
Fast forward to 2011 and after dropping the seminal ‘Beats and Pieces’ and a series of free releases in the intervening time Jon had his biggest year to date, with shows from London to Madrid and back and ‘The One’ receiving spins from the likes of Kutmah (Brainfeeder), B Bravo (Frite Nite) and an appearance on Gilles Peterson’s ‘Brownswood Bubblers Seven’ compilation.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Jon has completed ‘Grid Games’, his first EP on PRISM and most progressive work so far, setting off what looks to be a busy 2012.
