With live percussion, organic keyboards, house beats, and broken grooves, Journey to the light and Illusion will hopefully participate to keep Phil ‘s memory alive on the dancefloor or on your sound system.

Originally released on Resound Records, a one-off subsidiary of the classic Gherkin imprint in 1990. The title track is a deep hypnotic 12 minute ride through the Chicago underground.

With a DJ DOG on the remix, for the simpler feel. On the B side Fett Burger provides another party oriented underground party house tune! Straight to the point vintage sounding house music with Fett Burger’s typical touch. Here PST on the remix, continues the vibe, with a live mix version, with big room heaviness and original underground sound!

This album was compiled in 2020 during dark, dystopian times. As we searched for answers inside ourselves, Dan Piu’s artificial mind bubble manifested into a thick mass of confusion. Today in humanity’s journey, a science fiction foresight has become reality. The dawn of this new era has been essential for the frame of mind of this album: “Inside Universe”.
