Friendship & challenge are two values that define Phil pretty
well so it is no surprise that musical collaborations & versatility
tightly express his musical approach and personal ethic. After

Recorded in 2007 with his good friend Ralf Petter, an “old cat” of the Hamburg music scene, this track managed to capture the essence of these great studio sessions : Phil’s natural obsession to create hybrid club material & Ralf’s amazing engineering skills matching perfectly to create this sub-aquatic dream that resulted in the track name. Lost in the world of analogue synths of Ralf’s studio, they created a 9 minutes odyssey crossing the lines between Deep House, Disco futurism & Detroit influences topped by a surprising “ravy” breakdown.
Phil approached naturally 2 of his longtime favorite producers to give their own perspectives of the timeless feel of the original : Russ Gabriel, who Phil has always admired for the depth of his output on Ferox, Planet E or his own Soul On Wax, has signed a beautiful version of the track. Extremely subtle & hypnotic, this remix is a true blessing & a great pride. Mood Music’s honcho Sasse, old friend of Phil, retouched with lots of love & care the track that he went crazy for and even realised 2 versions of it : a deep late night rendition and a more tooly dub for peaktime moments.
