Enter the elusive Ghost Phone. The finest purveyor of sensual chopped ‘n’ screwed cuts, this Bristol label has fast become iconic in its own right. Known for taking your favourite r’n’b slow jams, dancehall bops, and rap trax and giving em a full-on Ghosty re-rub, as well as their 100% mixtape series – deep dives into the sounds of Sean Paul, Mariah Carey, and more – Ghost Phone’s heady blend of oddball sounds, sensual vocals and infectious edits have seen the platform stand out from the crowd, garnering devoted global fans.
With previous mixes for the likes of the Wire and Crack Magazine, a highly sought-after sell-out mixtape for Accidental Meetings on their recently launched cassette series, it’s a real pleasure to have this hot and heavy Ghost Phone selection, soundtracking the overdue of long balmy summer days.
Alongside a series of V/A releases and last years spaced out soulful R&B refixes on Lockdown Body Edits – their recent ‘Summer Body Edits’ is a must listen – a killer collaboration with fellow Bristol-based soulful garage producer Wilfy D that sees Nipsey Hustle, Sza, K Young, Dej Loaf and Koffee get the GP treatment.
Ghost Phone on the mix, “I’m never sure what to say about mixes or Ghost Phone, I like to let people make their own minds up and take from it what they will. I wanted to do something that will rattle your speakers and tug on your heartstrings, beautiful but also weighty, where sexy meets weird. It’s probably the most ‘dancefloor’ GP mix yet but then again that depends on what you think the dancefloor is or what it should be. In my world, this is what it looks like.”
