Visionary producer Whethan has released his wildly anticipated debut album, FANTASY. The groundbreaking project is highlighted by standout single “Drumdown Mambo,” which features fellow talent Jasiah.
“Fantasy is getting on a spaceship and teleporting anywhere your dreams can imagine,” Whethan shared. “I wanted to make a project that was full of energy and artists that I’m inspired by. There was an underlying theme of alternative meets psychedelic dance music and I wanted to be able to blast every song at my shows or have it feel like you’re at a show when listening at home or in the car. I grew a lot while working on the album over the span of the last 3 years and you can hear it through the different styles and feelings on each track.”
FANTASY sees Whethan uniting with a remarkably eclectic collection of fellow artists, including Chrome Sparks, Jaymes Young, The Wombats, and The Knocks to name a few. The genre-bending album was heralded last month with the acclaimed single, “Freefall.” The propulsive track marks the latest and perhaps greatest collaboration between the Chicago-based electronic artist and the one and only Oliver Tree.
