Frankfurt’s favourite Roman Flügel returns to Phonica Records with the ‘Black Acid EP’, a four tracker of Flügel’s signature black magic.
Roman needs no real introduction. Let’s just say this prolific producer has a hugely varied discography stretching back to the early 90s, putting his hand to Techno, House, Acid, Electro, Ambient, Bass music... you name it, he’s done it. It goes without saying that Phonica are extremely proud to present a brand new release from one of electronic music’s truest talents!
The ‘Black Acid EP’ began life way back in 2013 as Phonica sourced material for their ‘Ten Years Of Phonica’ compilation. Roman’s hypnotic, restrained percussion jam ‘Giant Talking Vegetable’ was one of the understated highlights of the release. A few years and countless email discussions later, London’s leading independent record shop happily unveil a 12” with four new tracks of pure Flügel black magic.
