The globe-trotter extraordinaire finds his way back onto familiar grounds. Following his 2016 release on Kitjen, Fantastic Man returns on Igor Tipura’s record label, with his enigmatic blend of rhythmic and psychedelic-infused house music.

Whilst his Superconscious Records has been putting out a steady stream of genre-bending workouts – the imprint which he runs alongside Francis Inferno Orchestra – Fantastic Man shares his first EP outing since 2016. Released on Kitjen, ‘Solar Surfing’ shows the Melbourne native’s panache for mind-altering soundscapes, mystical breakbeat layouts and acid-infused rhythmics. Ethereal rave excursions for introspective exploration.

The hypnotic and fast paced title track locks in with an off-grid and cosmic layout, whilst Native Power’ features the classic sound of Fantastic Man’s 303, coupled cleverly with the sound of an extraterrestrial bird-song. A drop in tempo rounds off the release with ‘Avocado Conception’ – an expertly delivered exploration in slow, chugging nostalgia. Big tip!

Solar Surfing is scheduled for release September 13th. Grab your copy via Bandcamp and Phonica.
