Commissioned by basic.fm ‘PH03NIX RISING: UNFINISHED BUSINESS’ represents an antithesis to Larry's audible heritage projects 'MEH MOGYA' and 'MORE MOGYA'. PH03NIX RISING depicts a chronicle that harnesses the other varied sounds that Larry's parents jammed to. By moving their lives from Ghana to a working-class, Western society in east London, Larry's parents were bound to uncover a variance of music that they may have experienced minimally back home.
This audio work proceeds to explore the alternate universes of sound that Larry was exposed to as a youngster including the 8-bit/18-bit era of videogame sounds and obscure film soundtracks, while re-presenting them as beats to weave a story that compliments ‘MEH MOGYA’ albeit via the mysterious pseudonym he assumes – ‘BLACK PH03NIX’…
The story of the Ph03nix aired live, every Sunday morning on basic.fm for the month of April, 2013 from 10am GMT.
