US-mainstay Phill Celeste AKA Life On Planets lands on Palm Recs for the first time with ‘Stay/Real High Key’ including a remix of ‘Real High Key’ courtesy of man of the moment Demuja. Life On Planets spoke about what the EP represents, stating: “Stay/Real High Key is a return to form focusing on grooves, storytelling and the raw feeling of live music. I recapitulate moments from the past and transmute them into fuel to create a brighter future.”
That nostalgic sense is felt right from the offset, as ‘Stay’ begins with funky guitar riffs residing atop driving kick-hat combos. Phill’s feel-good vocals feature throughout, whilst swinging synths create that signature upbeat feel. ‘Real High Key’ completes proceedings, taking the form of a gentle pop cut. It’s groovy, reflective and devilishly danceable, three traits that have come to epitomise Phil’s music in recent times.
Life On Planets is the solo project of singer/guitarist Phill Celeste. Melding hip-hop, R&B, soul and house in his original productions, the artist’s eclectic style has taken him from the streets of Baltimore to cities the world over. Releases on Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap, Double Standard and a myriad of other esteemed labels have propelled him into the global spotlight, whilst performances across the US, Europe and beyond continue to bring his sound to worldwide audiences.
Launched in May of 2021 by the established artist management company Palm Artists, East London based imprint Palm Recs has thus far welcomed Girls Of The Internet, DRAMA and Preditah to the label, with Fideles, Tensnake and D Double E featuring as remixers respectively. Receiving top tier coverage along the way, Palm Artists has been supported by the likes of Clash, DJ Mag, Mixmag, NME and more.More Like Stay - Life on Planets
