Having been drawn to the whole mid-tempo do-whatever-you-want kind of dance music he's creating a brand new lineage of music priding himself on his genreless sound and the space within it. Big influences from thriving 808 music and random mid-tempo bass riddimz! Phantasma has already self released his first official LP Earthen alongside his LP on Really Good Recordings 'No Way Out', and contributing to Sub Antix's 80 Weight release on Firepower.
