Electronic Press Kit (EPK)


Bio

Over the last eight years, Fantomacs, born in Berlin and currently working in Switzerland, released a number of singles/EPs/albums, cover songs and even poetry songs. In his songs the borders of the genres of electro, ambient & chillout, jazzy or funky to rock styles melt together, classical elements up to excerpts from political speeches are skillfully woven into the innovative grooves, whereby much surprising elements reach the ear. Other talented musicians and singers are added as "featured guests" and enrich the songs with their skills. 

 

Fantomacs began his musical education at the age of 8, first in the classical field, later on jazz, blues and other styles were added, which laid the musical foundation for his current forms of expression. The musical possibilities of expression grew continuously from the initial instrument piano, the jazz organ to keyboards, synths and work stations. His favorite instruments for many years is Roland`s flagship workstation - the Fantom-series. For music production he`s using the Apple Mac platform, together these two systems formed his stage name - Fantomacs

 

Fantomacs creates non-boring electro- /jazz, ambient & chillout music since more than 20 years, but more recently he brought his music projects to a broader audience on Bandcamp and many streaming platforms. To the quality of his musical work, Fantomacs  brings in a profound knowledge of midi & audio sequencing, mixing and mastering that has grown over the past decades. In context with his photo and cover art a complex whole is created that holistically reflects his personality.

Current AlbumS

This is my second album after the release of my debut album 'Fade out lines' in 2019 and several singles in 2020/2021. During the special Corona crisis, there was plenty of time to work on new songs and create the respective artwork and fotos. So this album is about these lonely times during the crisis, it's about hope and the desire to "fly away" to visit all the other beautiful locations of our world.

"... he very first song I wanna recommend is 'Aus Silber wird Gold'. This is an awesome song released by  Fantomacs and Ralf Gremmer. The music starts with a exclusive bass and beat. After that a soft drum plays comes which is really great to hear. The whole music consists of beautiful and soothing voice. Thus i recommend you to hear the song with Headphones on. "

"... Fantomacs and Heidi Marlen Grau , this release ('Riding the Waves') is also a noteable one from "This is Fantomacs" playlist. This is a really unique release from them. A peaceful voice with peaceful instrumental sounds. It felt like the instruments wanted to express their feelings to the world.  "
