It’s late Friday night over here in Germany.. by the time I’m finished it’ll officially be Saturday. But I’m excited I waited because Shayan Darabi, Jason Victorine and Gentry Jones, aka. Phonic Youth just posted probably their first ever live 1-hour mix recording of a show they played recently at Ten15 Folsom in San Francisco for the Yotto Hyperfall Tour 2019.
The reason this is so exciting is because I’ve known Shayan for a very long time. In their early days we even came together for a collaboration and wrote a progressive house banger track called 5am.. over ten years ago. This track includes live guitar by Jason and vocals by Shayan. Still one of my personal favorites in my collection. Phonic Youth has really come a long way and they were already friggin good back then!
Here is a little taste of 5am though I have to say they’re sound has really matured a lot since:
I know that it must have been really exciting receiving the news to be playing at Ten15. I played there a few times myself in the upstairs house room. Those were some of the best shows of my career back then. So I want to send out my sincerest congratulations on getting yet another step further and will dedicate this week’s Finally Friday to never stop taking these steps!
And now please chill or groove or full on dance to this Phonic Youth deep house set, recorded live at Ten15 Folsom in San Francisco, CA.
