© Systematic RecordingsSystematic Colours Volume Three mixed by Phonique is a not-to-be missed snapshot of Marc Romboy’s vision for his record label, Systematic Recordings...

Mixing classic releases with newer material, it is an opportunity to revisit some memories and to look to the future.

Taking the reins for the third in the series is Phonique. He deftly stitches the compilation together, blending tracks with a very nice effect. Phonique is an international performer who regularly spins in Brazil as well as playing a regular spot at Panorama Bar in Berlin.

The vibe in the early moments of the album is very much deep house. This is not Systematic’s most typical genre, but a firm Phonique favourite as he has won several awards for the style. Spirit Catcher’s Frequent Traveller is a case in point. As the album progresses, things become warmer and by the time track 5 drops, F.E.X’s Hedonism, there has been a palpable shift in mood.

It is intelligent mixing and is reminiscent of Phonique’s club sets. By starting deep he gives a neat context to some of Systematic’s more recognisable tunes, making them appear even more special than they would on their own.

Something immediately noticeable is the broad range of instruments it is possible to pick out. Check out the muted trumpet on Audio Soul Project’s Traditionalist. Or the reedy sounds on Pharaoh by Dimitri Andreas, which by the way is as evocative of ancient Egypt as is possible for a dance tune to be.

It’s refreshing to see Phonique thinking outside the box with tunes like these. It adds depth to the mix and gives Systematic Colours Volume Three a jazzy feel that is incredibly enjoyable.

Marc Romboy features heavily which is no surprise but always a pleasure. A highlight is the popular Couleur de L´Espoir by Rodriguez Jr. vs. Marc Romboy. Bass-heavy, Detroit inspired and totally tasty. The album’s final moments yield some straightforward-yet-spacey tech house courtesy of Romboy and Stephan Bodzin‘s 2010 smash Triton, still sounding fresh a year down the pipes.

Overall, Systematic Colours Volume Three flies the flag incredibly well for Systematic Recordings. It’s an accessible delight that will please both the casual listener and those with a more vested interest in the label’s releases alike.

Systematic Colours Volume Three mixed by Phonique is out from today on Systematic Recordings and available on Beatport and all other online music retailers.
