Review: It's nearly three years since Bristol-based dubstep explorer Phaeleh released his debut album, the decidedly deep and murky Fallen Light. On this second full-length, he switches his attentions to the more accessible, downtempo-influenced end of the genre, matching his ever-present low-end heaviness with intricate melodies, breezy atmospherics, and woozy, trip-hop style female vocals. For the most part, it's a formula that hits the spot, with stand out tracks "Here Comes The Sun" and "Whistling In The Dark" offering a contemporary take on '90s trip-hop. Best of all, though, is the beatless title track, which is little more than a powerfully emotional exercise in sublime piano playing.

Review: Unlike the majority of his Bristol natives, Phaeleh likes to go beyond his immediate remit, to express himself in ways that look further than half-step beats, kick drums and hollow sonics. This new LP for Undertow represents a true shift in mood from the enigmatic 'bass' producer, one that sets its focus on the simplicity of sound, rather than a convolution of beats and dance floor arrangements. This masterful album is made of a whole plethora of field recordings and electro-acoustic wonder, and it feels like travelling along a vast, desolate plane of sonics. We've been told it's taken the producer a long time to put together, and it's clear from the very start that this is perhaps Phaeleh's most focussed work to date. Let's hope this inspires a whole new generation of UK ambient producers. TIP!

Unity - (6:25) 131 BPM
Review: Bristol producer Phaeleh has earned his stripes as an independent entity coming out of the UK's dubbier badlands with a stream of self-released music via his Undertow label since 2014. "Unity" presents a new single pulling together heavier dubstep leads alongside two-stepping drums and percussion set to a backdrop of classical strings, breathy vocals and deeper trance atmospheres caught up in the euphoria of an urban melancholia.

Review: Hot on the heels of his excellent album Tides comes yet more new material from Bristol's Phaeleh. Arm-in-arm with singer du jour Jess Mills, "Storm" is the ideal balance of lush pop vocalism and meditative dubstep production. With cool percussion and waves of bass texture it's as distinctive as it is deep. For added house funk and flare head for Applebottom's cheeky 4/4 remix.
