Tobias Antar – Memories EXCLUSIVE TRACK


Tobias Antar brings some exclusive minimal chill to Acid Ted.

This is on DryCry Records, a London-based record label. Its ambition is “to uncover and deliver new and exciting alternative and electronic music“. That’s a very good ambition. Tobias is a Parisian producer. Of his work, he says “The music I create is rooted in the inspiration gathered from artists such as Arovane, early Apparat, Autechre, Boards of Canada, Kettel, Mu-ziq, Telefon tel aviv, Plaid, Xela, Nobukazu Takemura and many more. I play with sounds, noises, I shape, distort, shorten and extend, to build original forms of expression within the parameters of electronic music.” His previous few tracks smear themselves along the IDM / chill border. There’s too much hissing for chill and too much piano for IDM. But you can hear things like Boards of Canada and Plaid infuse his work.

Memories is more minimal than the others. It offers drones and odd hisses before allowing the synth to unfold. Although it offers small peaks, the prevailing mood is wistful yearning and speaks of lost opportunities. He says “I want the listener to generate mental images when listening to my music. That was my wish when I produced “Memories”.” But as the goalkeeping philosopher said “Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.” (Albert Camus)


Released 7th October on DryCry Records

Blurb: Tobias Antar is a Parisian producer tastefully creating a blend of electro, electronica and IDM. The first release, Circumstances, was incredibly well received and is a must for anyone interested in quality IDM, bedroom producer music. Tobias is releasing new music throughout 2013.
