Tonelab presents ‘Inhale Exhale EP’


Flow Music doesn’t need an introduction thanks to its impressive release catalog and numerous mix series that feature the hottest acts from around the world. Tonelab‘s original music as well as remixes by Nōpi and El Mundo are included in the imprint’s most recent release, Inhale Exhale EP. Philip Rex aka Tonelab is an Australian artist based in Melbourne who has also been released on labels such as Traum.

Philip Rex has been involved in music from a young age and before his career in electronic music, he was a jazz musician famed for being one of Australia’s most in-demand double bass players. He has performed at festivals all over the world, including Vuuv, Glade, Wonderland, Rainbow Serpent, Earthcore, Eclipse, and Maitreya. He was also one half of the Decoy duo.

El Mundo worked on a remix with his regular production partner Zazou for the most recent Flow Music release. This time the German producer is working in a solo capacity in the deep and organic style he has previously featured on the likes of Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical and Akbal Music.

Young Ukrainian producer Nōpi is making his Flow Music debut after appearances on prominent record labels like Anjunadeep, Do Not Sit, and All Day I Dream.

The EP’s original song, “Inhale Exhale,” has a slow-burning groove, haunting male vocals, and poignant chords layered with soaring pads and percussion designed for the dance floor. Nōpi’s remix of Inhale Exhale takes the original track and strips it down, adding fresh tribal percussion and a sub-heavy bassline to create a techy, atmospheric version. El Mundo’s remix introduces a new piano riff to create a spine-tingling version that’s full of suspense, while the original’s vocals fill it with emotion.
