Achtwaerts by Aantigen


A new release “Achtwaerts” by Aantigen has collected drifting compositions, where features great globs of synths and vocal lines interwoven with the percussion and provides tension to drive these songs forward.

The crown jewel of this EP is “Decompensate”, which features great globs of synth and a vocal line.This track is the most nimble, with a break beats, which are time to time changing a straight kick and percussion rhythm that lightens the gravelly bass and diabolic vocals.

“Same as Next” has masterful arrangements of shuffling percussion, moody chords and female voice. This dark and mellow blend is great for blissing out in the wee hours. This track is focusing on the deep-burrowing sounds; wich can belong to soulful club music.

“Stairways” is a bit different in texture, reveling in the gloom not as the rest of the release. However, within the darkness of atmosphere, some of synths burn bright. Track has an effective bassline, wandering its way down a scale with notes complementary to the low-passed pad in the background. Industrial hum and buzz is overlays the spooky soundscape with hi-hats and drums that rattle like heavy chains.

This is collection of most versatile DJ tool, and shows that being an effective craftsman of modern club music doesn’t always need elaborate structures. Viewed from one angle, it’s a simple, effective take on minimal music; viewed from another, it’s a sound with originality.

AantiGen has lived his early years at the bottom oft he black forest. During his youth and early twenties NTGN started producing mainly hiphop and singer-songwriter music and had quite a few shows on stage that time. After moving to Berlin in 2008 NTGN´s passion for Techno and Housemusic got bigger and bigger and soon he signed his first release on Klangwild Records. Many more followed. After loads of live shows, DJ gigs and parties along side artists like Monika Kruse, dritter Raum, Butch and many more NTGN decidet to start his own Label. Now he is taking care of the the small underground label zoned-recordings and released several ep´s and a vinyl. NTGNs style is not easy to describe but we can say it is a mix between deep and experimental elements, deep basslines and spheric synths with a tendency tot he dancefloor.
