Payfone “Day & Night”

Production duo Payfone debut on Defected with ‘Day & Night’, demonstrating their strictly authentic sound that demands all elements of  a record to be 100 per cent original. Producers with a distinctive sonic aesthetic, an evocative top line provided by regular collaborator Louis  Howard Jones, who featured on standout record ‘Paradise’, is offset with a bass-led groove and chunky snare to add a hint of moodiness to the vocal house cut.

With just the right amount of 2010s deep house nostalgia to keep ‘Day & Night’ fresh for contemporary listeners, this winning formula has worked well so far for Phil Passera and Jimmy Day. Following releases on influential US imprint Golf Channel and a recent remix on Defected’s sub-label DFTD, ‘Day & Night’ continues to cement their reputation as one of electronic music’s most intriguing acts, while exhibiting the trademark Payfone sound.
