Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound returns with more killer dancefloor business following up great releases by Daniel Avery and Cowboy Rhythmbox. This time it's courtesy of Frenchman Kamera who delivers a fine selection of moods and grooves on the Ventoux EP. Conceived during a series of gruelling training sessions while cycling Mont Ventoux. First track "Consignia" sits somewhere between house and techno with its rapid fire house keys, bleeps and shuffling beat which is pretty fierce; this would sound great pitched down too. The title track goes for the same vibe on this soulful and melodic journey track that is reminiscent of John Tejada's early works. "MF15" is the real stomper on here; a roaring, peak time acid techno track. Finally "Voodoo Canape" explore the sinister and esoteric on this darkly studding ambient piece.
