Back to All Events


Phonseca returns to Cafe Kino after the sell out Between A Dream album launch in February.
Since the release it has been extremely well received with airplay and reviews from online radio stations and magazines globally. BBC 6Music's Steve Lamacq was quick to play tracks on his daytime show and also his "Recommends" show with plays from fellow 6music DJ Gideon Coe too.

Phonseca is the ambient/electronica project from Bristol’s much respected keys/synth player, Matthew O’Connor, who over the years gained vital experience in bands with styles as diverse as Britpop, Psyche, Shoegaze, House, Soundtrack and Electronica.
His training as a classical pianist also had a subtle influence on the sound, which in addition to Phonseca, led to composing Library Music where his work has been synched on primetime T.V. like BBC1’s - The One Show, Channel 5 programs and National T.V. in Poland and Romania. This is also where his taste and knowledge for film scores and soundtracks had a big influence on the Phonseca sound.

“All in all a professionally assembled and beautifully executed album from a man with genuine talent that cannot afford to go amiss”
- Jason Small - Small Music Scene Blog (UK)

“People say that a good album or piece of music is one that you will remember for a long time. This is one of the contenders already for that end of year top ten. Marvellous!”
- Dave Goodwin - PennyBlack Music (UK)
