470 // Phun Thomas – Kites

Spring is coming... on Skalbiankė. Check Phun Thomas's beautiful contribution to this blooming VA.

Skalbiankė is a new independent music label based in Vilnius, Lithuania. With a focus on the local underground music scene with some spot-on occasional international collaborators, the project is described by its curators as “an occasional brainwash”. The good kind of brainwashing, though, not the bad one, we are safe.

For its third instalment, a beautiful VA was compiled, featuring some fine young and promising local talents. Named after the most beautiful season of the year, the compilation delivers twelve cuts ranging from Acid Balearic to Electronica, from Electro to Techno, plus some other hard-to-pigeonholing themes.

“Ancient civilizations have long recognized the power of Spring: a season of renewal and rebirth. In fact, many of them started their year count from the spring equinox, a time when the world seemed to come alive after the brutal winter”, states de official description of the release.

Premiered here, Phun Thomas’s contribution is definitely one of the highlights of the VA. His “Kites” flies high with its modular synth layers, mesmerising stabs, and dreamy pads. Just don’t think it is a soothing and serene piece – its gait is definitely frenzied and berserk, ready for peak-time appearances.

You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
