Based out of Tampa, Florida, Phantom Phunk’s creative genius continues to shine with their new single titled Memory’s A Ghost. The group has an extremely inventive guise, as their fusion of alternative rock and hip-hop has opened the doors for new avenues of musical innovation. I first learned of Phantom Phunk’s compelling sound in my review of their song Everywhere You Go. Phantom Phunk is embarking on a tour of the South East in a couple of weeks.

Memory’s A Ghost is a very impressive expression of Phantom Phunk’s artistic evolution. Outside of a few album skits on works by A Tribe Called Quest and their esteemed Can I Kick It, Phantom Phunk is the first group to record a hip-hop song that makes use of call and response harmonics as an integral part of a track’s structure. I was immediately drawn to the cadence of the bars being recited and also the track’s acoustic production, which gives Memory’s A Ghost its overall organic appeal. Phantom Phunk’s latest offering has resurrected a bit of soul in all of us.
