Antares lands on Locked Up with his ‘Angles’ EP


Locked Up Music welcome Antares to the camp with his ‘Angles’ EP. The EP consists of 4 tracks of precision engineering with enough vibe to make the crossover between the technical and the dancefloor. Locked Up have had Antares and his music on their radar ever since he started the project in January 2019. Having had several releases on hard-hitting labels such as Ballpark Recordings and Danger Chamber, Antares is set for big things in 2021. 

Opening up the EP is ‘The Gate’ which begins with Rhodes licks and intricate live drums until the breakdown; the drop is hard as hell with chopped breaks and reece stabs. Antares continues to take you on his trip and the tune keeps developing until the end. Next up ‘Baphomets Tears’ cleverly switches drums over a devastating bassline, balanced with atmospheric pads and fx to make this track a true journey tune. Our premiere ‘Remnant’ takes Antares out of his comfort zone by providing us with a deep roller. Packed full of emotion, this track has been getting support from Kolectiv, OB1, Section and Taelimb. To round up Antares’ debut EP is the almighty ‘The Order’. It’s an amen lover’s dream with precision choppage and sinister samples, what more do you need? 

Antares hails from Florida and is a dark and atmospheric, break heavy Jungle project by Josh Stotz. Conceived in January of 2019, as his Illicit project was put to bed, Antares is influenced by darker cinematic landscapes and ambient works. Antares has a string of releases on Danger Chamber Digital, Ballpark Recordings, Force Recordings, Hangry Records, Monkey Business and now Locked Up Music. Older releases under the Illicit name can be found on Ruffah Ras Records, Mos-Hi, Top Ranking Records, Nuff Stylez (France), and Hum-Fi Drum Digital. Antares aims to bring a darker cinematic soundscape to modern Jungle.
