Q&A and Premiere: AnGy KoRe Releases 13-Track “Clarion” Album on Himmel

This past Monday Italian producer and DJ AnGy KoRe unveiled his latest studio project, a thirteen-track LP released on Himmel entitled Clarion.  

Himmel is AnGy KoRe’s own label, which he is introducing to the world with this special release. The album itself is a collection of powerful tracks characterized by strong grooves, distorted percussions and fat bass, mixed with dynamic synths and catchy vocals, all combining to provide a dark atmosphere that aims to break dance floors worldwide. It’s an album with eclectic ideas, that aims to break the normal standard with influences that bring together old school sounds with more modern characteristics, a kind of alternative techno that wants to smash the conventional rules by touching upon and bringing together different shades of electronic music.

From acid sounds to melodic, from hard techno to groovy, all of these tracks are different from one another, each with their own identity and soul. Yet their uniqueness combine to showcase Angelo del Core’s skills in the studio. After all, the veteran Italian artist has remained at the forefront of the industry thanks to decades of hard work and prolificness both as a producer and DJ, just as Clarion demonstrates now.

The album, which was released on May 8th, is available for purchase on Beatport. We are giving you the exclusive streaming premiere of “I Wanna You” from the LP, as well as an interview with Angelo himself. Enjoy!

Premiere: Listen to “Deep Gravity” from Anders Ponsaing’s Forthcoming EP on Favouritizm

After notching up a 1.7 million Youtube plays on his stunning ‘Don’t Tell Me No’ remix for Eva Scolaro and Steen T’, Favouritizm are thrilled to snap up talented Ibiza resident Anders Ponsaing for his debut EP on the label, Deep Gravity.

With the ability to craft charming, sophisticated sunset grooves through to high octane Tech House bangers for the peak hours, Deep Gravity sees Anders deliver a potent double tracker. The title track comes with an addictive hook that growls over balearic key stabs and melodic synth washes and punchy beats, whilst “Black Soda” comes with a twist of melancholy, where bold synth stabs and dulcet arpeggios unite over a deep, percussive groove.
