This review covers the progressive house track Fehrplay – Phantom.
This track was released in 2013 as a single.
The track starts off interesting with a sub-melody and bassline. A major melody then gradually starts to fade in before fading out. After that, there is a chord melody that plays out which was pretty nice to listen to.
Once the drop hits, the main melody returns which is backed by a nice bassline-like pad. Eventually, the main portion of this track takes over which is a nice combination of chord melody and the main melody of this track. It’s a little difficult to describe, but it is a rather nice overall sound.
There’s really very little to criticize about this track. While it does use that big rise sound, this track uses a softer sound that has a sort of filtered white noise being a dominant sound in it. So, it wasn’t as cliche as other tracks I’ve heard.
Generally speaking, this was a rather pleasant listening experience. It has upbeat, yet calming melodies throughout. The way it was constructed was nice. An overall pretty good track.
