After sending Scala to Berlin, twirling his Hélice in London and colonising Bapteme in Cologne, Agoria declares Independence in Barcelona. An anthem thats been a highlight of the summer for Maceo Plex and Agoria, Independences date has finally being fixed.
Agoria on Independence "Since I moved to Paris last year, I have had the chance to meet amazing artists including the Russian pianist Mikhail Rudy and the sound designer of the movie Gravity, Nicolas Becker. The three of us are animated by curiosity and the will of playing with our specifics boundaries. I guess this is just the first step symbolizing our state of mind: Independence. When I met Eric [Maceo Plex] in Ibiza last year, we instantly connected, we both can play all kinds of music so I thought Ellum was the place to release it."
Agorias debut release on Ellum is an equally sinister and experimental affair. Apocalyptic drum crescendos are broken up by warm synths tones and washed against baritone basslines on the title track. Architecturals stunning rework elevates it to an eerie, cavernous space. Gravity featuring Nicolas Becker, features spoken word layered over a driving, hypnotic groove and Stephen Barnems remix builds an intensity in simple, pulsating frequencies.
