Phantom Runners – First Time | New Music

Phantom Runners 23.07.2016ANDREW


Phantom Runners is the guise of future-pop producer Adam Al-Hilali, better known as ADAL, and has a track out called “First Time”. It also features the talents of Brooke Bailey, to boot. The track is coproduced by John Beck, known for work with people the likes of Izzy Bizu, Delilah and Corinne Bailey Rae. It is about forever chasing that first feeling with someone.


“First Time” opens with cut up vocal sample, before earnest keyboard and deep, clapping drum. There are some excellent dynamics, as the backdrop pulls back a bit, and the vocals breathe. The impassioned vocals are definitely moody, melodramatic and very, as is the intention, Eighties.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
