Agonis’ deep-tripping tech speeds up
Up to this point Swiss producer Agonis has generally been known for rolling out impeccable techno of a deeper persuasion, both in his own productions and co-running the excellent amenthia label. But his new album Neutropia takes that sound palette of moody pads and dub-licked spatial awareness and straps it to some faster tempos and broken rhythms. It’s another sign that faster tempos are providing plenty of inspiration for artists outside the predominant bassweight mindset, and we’re here for it.
