2007 release. The smart and charming Berlin-based producer Phonique (Michael Vater) returns with his second album, featuring a limited edition bonus CD with 12 more new Phonique tracks in one mix. Good Idea is a twinkling rainbow, teeming with positive vibes and breathing the cosmopolitan creativity of a widely travelled mind. Good Idea can be described as modern electronic music in the broadest sense, it's difficult to pigeonhole the album as it combines so many influences, ranging from deep- to electro-house, from nu-disco to hip-hop, from lounge to minimal and techno to pop. Phonique and his production partner Alex Krüger join with the talents of well reputed artists like Erlend Øye (Whitest Boy Alive, Kings Of Convenience), Richard Davis, Ian Whitelaw, Shadee and Rodney Hunter of Aphrodelics, Data MC and Marc Hype as well as top electronic producers like Steve Bug, Gui Boratto, Vincenzo, Zoo Brazil, Badmouth (Mazi & Cass) and talents such as Ruben or Liora. The collaboration highlights of the album include "Casualities" (featuring Erlend Øye), which merges uplifting airiness with melancholy in the distinctive Erlend way; the soulful "Worked It Out" (featuring Ian Whitelaw and Meitz) and the powerful "Computer Kidz" (featuring Shadee). But the flow of the entire album makes it difficult to pick out just a few tracks. On the second limited edition bonus CD, you'll find the more dancefloor-dedicated facet of Phonique's creativity in a homogeneous and highly dynamic mix by Phonique. Another twelve all new Phonique tracks fall into place perfectly, ranging from deeper to electro to more minimal and techy house tracks. The mix reflects the unique dynamics of a Phonique DJ set. Good Idea is a strong musical statement; fresh, inspiring and innovative.
