Following Anton Zap’s debut album ‘Water’ released on Apollo Records back in June 2013, Anton Barbashev, the Russian electronic producer returns to the R&S Records sub-label for another foray into his highly distinctive, deep and ever evolving productions.
‘Subculture‘ pencils a new page in Anton Zap’s sound-traveling notebook, deploying an array of chameleonic outbreaks, echoing from fantasy jazz spheres to expressionistic post hip-hop drops with a devoted taste for sharply designed synth-scapes.
Opener ‘Pauspapier‘ presents a convolution of echoed drumming and ephemeral synths rolling into parallel territories. Grounded, stiff percussions hit and fall implacably but Zap’s spaced-out dub leaves you floating in a reverbed vacuum.
Subculture EP is released on 1st June 2015 through Apollo Records.
