‘Lost Time’ sees the Bristol based producer showcase his production versatility and diverse range of influences. It features the atmospheric sub heavy melodies Phaeleh is traditionally known for, alongside the vintage synthesisers and field recordings of his recent ambient albums, all with an increased use of live instrumentation as a result of rekindling his love of guitars and other instruments through his live shows from recent years. On 'Feel You Fade' Phaeleh is joined by singer Augustus Ghost who previously featured on ‘Whistling in the Dark’ and toured with Phaeleh in 2013.
2016 saw Preston returning from what he describes as 'a few years lost within the music industry abyss' with the ‘All That Remains’ EP, along with remixes for Cloud Boat and Roger Goula. This was followed with a North American tour, ending with a headline performance at Sonic Bloom festival in Colorado. His return to the UK involved the release of his critically acclaimed ambient album 'Illusion of the Tale' which was supported with sold out live shows in London and Bristol, alongside some select DJ performances.
