This is Vienna-based Phillip Quehenberger's long awaited full-length debut, after the 12" EP Q.B.B.Q on Cheap in 2002. Phantom in Paradise seems to be immune to quick categorization. Based on a wondrous forwardness, the prevailing instrumental tracks neglect predictability, never lose their mysteries, opening psychedelic trap doors and windows, bunching imagination and closeness. Phantom in Paradise captivates with intelligent dancefloor confusions, hypnotic maelstroms and darkly gleaming pop. Quehenberger has taken the raw energy of his ecstatic live performances and crafted a diamond of a release. From the catchy riffs of "Loner Goner," to the polyrhythmic UR-like "Varad" and the scorching twisted keyboard distortion of "Verdammst!," this is dance-heavy pop-eclecticism.
