Hybrid, mutated strains of rave music with influence from the sounds of London, Detroit, and Berlin – Aquarian makes raw, arresting and immediate music aimed squarely at the dance floor. His latest release on Houndstooth with collaborator Deapmash under the pseudonym AQXDM perfectly exemplifies the forward, hybrid sound you can expect from Aquarian.
His sound draws from both sides of the Atlantic, combining Drexcyian electro, old school jungle, and UK grime with vertical singularity. The Canadian born, Berlin based artist broke out with a trio of records for UNO NYC in 2012 and has since released records through his own culinary-rave imprint, Hanger Management while collaborating with Caen-based producer Deapmash as AQXDM on Bedouin Records and Houndstooth.
Recently, his high energy and eclectic mixing style has found its way to Berghain, De School, Tresor, and Unsound Festival, with a recent standout mix for Dekmantel’s podcast series. His solo and collaborative releases have meanwhile drawn support from from Aphex Twin, Nina Kraviz, Call Super, Objekt, Avalon Emerson, and more.
