Released March 3rd 2020 on all digital streaming and download formats, this is the first single to be taken from the London duo’s exceptional new album “Panacea”.
“Cosmic Soul” is straight neck breakin’ hip hop as Phoenix reminisces on his alien abduction encounter and shamanic background, while the flip side “Seasons of You” is a slick r&b floor filler featuring Natalie May who you’ll remember from Rudimental’s “Sexy Sexy”. Includes a remix courtesy of Soul Brother Juice

Out April 24th, this is the third single installment from the album “Panacea”. “The Humans are Coming” incorporates a powerful and highly creative fusion of electronica, dub and bass as Phoenix pens a letter of contrition to the mystical Gaia for crimes against her realm, while the soulful electro of “Travlling Buddy” featuring Chantelle Small is an extremely poignant take on mental health issues.
Phoenix da Icefire & Husky Brown – “Panacea”
Released Tuesday May 5th, this exceptional debut partnership brings a fresh perspective to the genre with Husky’s kaleidoscopic productions fusing hip hop, r&b, soul, dub, bass, reggae, electronica and jazz.
As expected of a Triple Darkness member, Phoenix uses all of his creative verbal artillery to address a number of highly relevant issues for these volatile times covering the environment, mental health, racism, disengagement, knife crime and social decay, all with the aspiration of healing and reconciliation.
A truly astounding and ground breaking piece of work which has broken from formulaic convention and common held perceptions of London’s rap music scene.

Each individual track can be downloaded, or if you opt for the whole album, you will automatically receive three additional bonus tracks, those being “Travelling Buddy” remixed by Chemo aka Telemachus, “Sins of Gaia remixed by Kashmere and “Seasons of You remixed by Soul Brother Juice”.
