Exclusive Stream: P X A / Felix Castenzio – Phases (Split)

pxa felix

Invisible Guy have been enlightened by the apparition that is I Had An Accident Records. Which means, that in a sweet collaboration, we’ll be streaming three albums that are all due to be released on the 18th of June. This means that you’ll have a treat on set dates up until that particular date. The clock is ticking, the drums are beating and now you’re up for a sweet treat. Because now it’s the 12th of June, which means that our collaboration with this wonderful label has ended. Don’t fear, there will still be an exclusive stream for you to partake in. Somewhere in a lucid dream, Felix Castenzio is playing his sweet synthesizers, which morph into uncanny and simple melodies that holds the boat afloat. In between experimental electronica and noise, is where he’s at. But its hard to place him in any category, because his music is so orderless. Feel the nostalgic samples throw you into a totally different sphere, as you cling to the sweet sensations and arythmic pace that was created for you. But behold, because P X A is also on this cassette, since it’s a split. Here, we’ll be put into a somber mood, as its meditative tempo and outrageously steep vision of music shrouds your judgement. As it combines the idleness with contextualized rhythms that could put you in a state of trance. Caressing the wonders of a landscape filled to the brink with exciting sounds, noises and temporary timelessness. If you don’t know where to turn, pass on your thoughts for the oracle IHAA to analyze, in written text about this release:

Phases is one of the most beautiful releases we have had the pleasure to be part of, from the album artwork and cassette to the split sounds of P X A and Felix Castenzio. 
We begin with the retro feel of P X A, a project of Astro Nautico’s Paolo Xz. The mixes dance like silk dresses on a spring day, they are so light and rolling, it is an emotional decay, the perfect way to end a hard day and the perfect moments of relaxation. We are fortunate to have this Brooklyn based artist develop such a meditative relaxation piece, like glass gently tapping on ice, or the clink clink of champagne, the moment before sleep overcomes, the drag of the day dissipates like ripples in water. 
Felix Castenzio fuses the sounds of the 80’s and 90’s into a formidable cool respite from the summer’s heat. The feeling of the air conditioner on a hot body after returning from long-boarding or a quick game of tennis with your girlfriend and her white short shorts, this just feels right. It is all timed out like a distant buzz of a lawnmower or the lucid dreams from a nap in the hot sun. It’s the moments of bubbling bliss that makes this lo-fi soundscape sensational. Limited to 60 c40 pink tint cassettes.
