Phantom Runners is the moniker of pop producer ADAL (aka Adam Al-Hilali).
Forged through a love of R&B, pop and 80’s music, Phantom Runners are embarking on a journey of collaboration. Working on an album featuring several vocalists, the initial track is the aptly named ‘First Time’, featuring Brooke Bailey.
“‘First Time’ is a track about chasing that first feeling you get with someone, that initial rush,” explains ADAL.
Co-produced by John Beck (Izzy Bizu, Delilah, Corinne Bailey Rae), ‘First Time’ is three minutes of scintillating 80’s nostalgia over fresh electronic beats, boasting retro synths eloquently blended with sun-splashed soulful vocals.
