Premiere | Cantor: “Recurrent (Alexander Robotnick Remix)”

June 18th, 2020

We introduced you to California based producer, musician, and DJ Cantor when we shared a top notch rework of his track “Hannet’s Dream” by Modular Project back in April. Now he’s back with hi great new EP “Convergence” on his own label Underground Pacific, after delivering some quality tunes on labels such as Correspondant, Trafico Music and Motordiscs. The “Convergence” EP is an emblematic rendering of Cantor’s attitude in sonic form – a sampling from his consciousness. Four tracks, three originals, and one remix, influenced by new wave and post punk, the record presents auditory concepts through which to explore the fundamentals of Cantor’s music: distortions, psychedelia, romanticism, and sonic cheerfulness.

With the original track “Recurrent” being simply majestic, today we are excited to premiere the track’s acid remix by the one and only Alexander Robotnick, who infuses the tune with his own character offering to the clubbers a mesmerizing atmospheric dance-floor trip. We love the repetitive arpeggiator motives, the hi-hats, and the strong beat. It’s one of those tunes that when you listen to, you close your eyes and you feel your body moving. Blast the track above, exclusively on LAGASTA.

Cantor’s “Convergence” EP drops on June 22nd via Underground Pacific. The EP’s vinyl edition is carefully tended featuring a unique contribution of the Italian artist Fabio Baggio (artbajo). Pre-order it here.

Good times! For its tenth release, Italian Nothing Is Real imprint welcomes the California based producer and DJ Cantor with his debut for the label, an introspective and contaminated production, entitled “Hannet’s Dream”. With a handful of fine releases on labels such as Correspondant, Motordiscs and Trafico under his belt, Cantor continues to craft quality tunes while exploring the sounds of Italo disco, Detroit techno, punk and new wave.

With “Hannet’s Dream”, Cantor has created something special, a powerful tune full of darkness, isolation and sparkling romance. And you can quite easily spot the cleverly used samples from Joy Divison and Human League’s classics. And if that’s not enough, the track comes backed with a rework by label founders Modular Project, the eclectic Italian duo of Alberto Iovine and Alessandro Fumagalli, which we’re excited to premiere here at LAGASTA. On their rework of “Hannet’s Dream”, Modular Project infuses the original track with an extra dose of energy, delivering a killer “Isolation” version that’s suitable for peak times on the dance floor. Play it loud, exclusively on LAGASTA.

The “Hannet’s Dream” EP drops on April 30th via Nothing Is Real. Pick up your copy here.
