Whethan Takes Us Trough A ‘Fantasy’ With New Album
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.
