Antrim – Black Night [Or Two Strangers]

6 min read

The latest release from Or Two Strangers finds label boss Antrim back in the spotlight with a new EP. The Cordoba resident continues to be a favourite of the genre’s premiere tastemakers in Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren, while laying claim to releases on Sudbeat Music and Hope Recordings. A prolific 2020 has seen Antrim collaborate with fellow progressive music stars Interaxxis and Alex O’Rion, for releases on Cid Inc’s Replug Records and Roger Martinez’s Higher States, along with solo outings for Guy Mantzur’s Plattenbank Records. Now returning to his comfortable home of Or Two Strangers, Antrim present a four-track artist showcase entitled ‘Black Night’.

Getting the release underway and sitting as one of Antrim’s most powerful productions to date is the title selection ‘Black Night’. Punchy beats and a robust groove set the foundation for a narrative of rolling rhythms and quirky arps. Pushing a peak time narrative, percussive flurries and emotive chord changes continue to elevate mood across the first act, before melting down into a well-crafted centrepiece. Tranquil and spacey at the outset, the interlude shifts moods with drummy loops and white noise building tension, before dropping out into a pulsating groove and emotive finale. The second selection ‘Hopelessness’ continues the EP’s peak time appeal with it’s bulbous beats and electric lines. Powerful, driving and a touch trippy, the narrative delights with its astral arps and growling synths. Pensive atmospheres carry the rhythms below, before a striking break provides the perfect prelude to a gigantic final act.

The EP’s midway point finds Antrim diversifying his portfolio in collaboration with vocalist Nahuel Chiarella on ‘Last Dance’. Dark and compelling in equal measure, it’s a collage of vocal edits, buzzing synth lines and astral effects which captivate across the eight-minute journey. Radically shifting mood into deeper, more emotive territory is the final selection ‘Perspectives of Love’. From its warm, submerged groove comes placid atmospheres, creamy tones and a spoken word vocal narrative. Thought provoking and emotive, it carries the journey as hopeful overlays drift across the framework, before reaching a tranquil apex amidst muted pianos and fragmented melodies.

In a year that has seen Antrim unveil his most highly regarded work to date, he continues in auspicious fashion with ‘Black Night’, which makes for a fitting return to his Or Two Strangers imprint.
