simiah & the phantom ensemble: connections

Francisco Espregueira

The Phantom Ensemble was formed in Bristol, England and consists of 3 members; Simiah - on MPC - leads their ideological approach while Dan Somers - on keys - and Craig Crofton - on tenor & soprano sax - give a sublime instrumental texture to it. Their debut album, Connections, comes out on February 15th through one of best houses for underground hip hop in the UK: KingUnderground Records.

Connections is a collection of jazz inspired, hip hop instrumentals with MPC drums and live instrumentation. Simiah is well known for his live double MPC show cases and has performed alongside other live musicians so this new project is like a studio album of what he does naturally on stage. The unique sound came after a period of playing together with the other bandmates and that eventually led to improvised new material and fine tuned ongoing compositions. A very limited vinyl edition wil lbe available for collectors.
