PHFAT’s latest EP follows the trajectory of a relationship from beginning to end
“I’ve been obsessed with love songs for the longest time, it was only after I started really working on my voice and my singing that I could actually explore the format properly. I threw myself in headfirst.“
PHFAT’s latest release ‘sex | love | heartbreak’ sees him mixing his signature dark electronic rap sound with pop and R’n’B elements to create an EP that is both as dark as anything that he’s ever done, and at the same time is as polished and as catchy as anything you might hear when you spin the FM dial. This is a complete re-invention for the Cape Town-based rapper.
About ‘sex | love | heartbreak’
This EP contains exactly what it says: Songs about sex, love and heartbreak. From raunchy one-night stands to boyish infatuation, from heart-wrenching goodbyes to isolated self-reflection, this work is all encompassing.
On the production side of things, PHFAT opted to work with underground pop wunderkind Omri Dahan (“Get Some” and “Catherine”) Johannesburg-based hip hop trio Ganja Beatz (“My Lady”) and his former PHFAT co-conspirator, Narch (“Dark Dance” and “Feeding Time).
