When Cop Shoot Cop broke up recently it opened up a whole new realm of opportunity for it's members to begin new solo and collaborative projects. Phylr is one such solo venture of J.F. Coleman which features a rather impressive array of percussion and found sound textured programming. Following in the footsteps of such prominent dub masters as Mick Harris of Scorn, Phylr has chosen to utilize a rather straight forward arrangement of percussion as the core of it's sound. However, the comparison ends there as J.F Coleman adds layered sections of strings, a random array of found sound elements and a little bit of good old fashion elbow grease to breathe a vibrant life into his music. He has also incorporated the vocals of Dawn McCarthy of 'Thistle' and 'Away' which give the music a very lush Pop element. Phylr is definitely an outstanding new addition to the Invisible Records table that should please fans of both the Dub and Drum'n'Bass scene while infusing a little bit of worldly culture into it's listeners with it's diversity.

Phylr is: J.F. Coleman
