After a slew of original singles on tastemaker labels, it was only a matter of time before the vibrations of DJ/Producer Phil Soda’s music landed on the radar of a major label. Signed to Columbia Germany, the young electro-pop talent comes forth with his first single, ‘Look Back’, featuring Thandi on the Berlin-based imprint.
‘Look Back’ transmits a brooding neon-lit atmosphere from its opening bars, delving into the progressive verge of Phil Soda’s musical range. Then, entangled with deep power chords and the tinted vocals of Thandi resonating top line, ‘Look Back’ sharpens the view with its enthralling synth-heavy groove.
Talking about ‘Look Back’, Phil Soda said, “Having spent the last 16 months working on this project. I feel the final version of the song being unleashed fits well with everything going on, the zeitgeist and everything we’ve all been coping with. So, I really hope people make it their own, and it impacts everyone giving them a boost.”
In his short but successful production tear, Phil Soda’s already planted strong foundations on established labels ChillYourMind, Mr. Revillz and Selected. A self-taught producer and DJ, his releases on those imprints have accumulated millions of plays within just a few months. Additionally, fans and music artists have become familiar with Phil Soda and his taste in tracks through his Soda Pop Playlist on Spotify. Across his socials, Phil Soda has amassed a large community of fans that includes more than 1.4 million TikTok followers and 195k Instagram followers.
Marking his first single under the Columbia Germany banner, Phil Soda drafted in 21-year-old artist Thandi to deliver a sombre tone to the pulsating, nocturnal energy that ‘Look Back’ emits.
