This is the third full-length release by Berlin-based producer Phonique for Dessous. Phonique released his debut album Identification (DES 009CD) on Dessous followed by Good Idea (DES 012CD) as well as countless acclaimed 12"s on labels such as Poker Flat, Dessous (including the hits The Red Dress and For The Time Being), Crosstown Rebels, Brique Rouge, Global Underground, Renaissance, Fine, Mood Music, Simple, Systematic and Tiefschwarz's label Souvenir. He's also a highly in-demand remixer and has worked for Thugfucker, Erlend Øye, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Manuel Tur & Dplay, Zoot Woman, Kevin Yost, Will Saul, and many more. His DJ skills have helped him become one of the leading tastemakers for the open-minded house-heads and he has already delivered high-profile mix albums such as Erlend Øye's DJ Kicks and Erotic Moments In House for Dessous. More focused and mature than the forerunners, Kissing Strangers is brimming with modern, soulful, deep house music that spreads an airy, summer vibe. Phonique has also been elected "Best Deep House Act" by Beatport and "Best Deep House DJ" by the Ibiza DJ Awards. Kissing Strangers was co-produced with Alex Krüger aka Tigerskin and features a host of guest collaborators and co-producers including Kiloo, Ian Whitelaw, Ruben, Louie Austen, Pupkulies & Rebecca, Georg Levin & Kikiorix, Nadeshda, Abyss, H.O.S.H., and Gui Boratto.
