Phantasmagroria is a surreal sonic noir advancing Linev's masterful compositional expanse well past the structural confines of his debut, a delicately constructed dance between the warmth of reality and the cool transience of dreams.

"As it grew, Phantasmagoria was the hallway, the doors that glued each room to the other," says Linev. "The word embodies the subconscious path that flows through each piece of music, and their unique physics. And in these songs, each guest becomes a curator - a storyteller giving the room math to explain that ebb - that change of state and the metamorphosis of grief into hope."

Phantasmagoria is a communal affair for Kan Wakan, bringing on several of Linev's friends to tell stories across each of the three LP's definitive moods. He developed this emphasis on the value of community in Bulgaria at a young age - his parents divorced when he was one, and growing up in poverty meant his family might only eat that day if they got to the bread line early enough. It was during these challenging times that Linev was rescued by a strong bootleg tape community in his hometown of Sofia, nourishing him with an array of new musical input.

Elle Olsun's mysteriously moody croon haunts Phantasmagoria's first LP faster than you can say 'ethereal', while Rachel Fannan's soulful delivery bookends the second LP's adventurous, varied sonic exploration. For the final act, Linev's old touring friend SAÍGO's upbeat energy dominates the third LP, completing a journey more intimate than any loose consortium of auto-tuned EDM vocalists could ever possibly facilitate.
