DON’T SLEEP: Jon Phonics “Grid Games EP” [NEW PROJECT]

Team PIK‘s Jon Phonics had one hell of a 2011. He dropped some of the biggest jawns of the year in his Chakra Sounds single “Bruck Out”/”The One” (which landed him a spot on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Bubblers 7 compilation) and the mix  “Gutter Beats For Rapping” showcasing slaps he had available for purchase on the Producers I Know Bandcamp.

Jon’s new project is the “Grid Games EP” which dropped on PRISM February 6th but goes into wide release on February 20th. It shows off the full range of his immense creativity and versatility, featuring collaborations with PIK’s own Pete Cannon, former team member Jeeks and BUG. It also features remixes from Kidkanevil, Pedestrian & Ghost Mutt. The digital version will include additional tracks featuring S-Type, Jaisu, SirOJ and Bobby Tank. Here’s the PRISM Bandcamp link.
