Antwerp - 'Erin' [Download]
He's Genoa-born, he's London-based, yet he goes by the moniker Antwerp. You are the sum of your parts so the traveling saying goes, and this seems evident in the rather varied and chilled, dulcet electronic tones of his creation.
'Erin' is taken from his 2nd and forthcoming EP Permanent State of Jet Lag, and mixes the warm, benevolent ambience of Boards of Canada with a more dreamy vibe akin to Southern Shores.
The eclectic EP is to be released on digital label Noise Praise (who also operate as a club-night in London) on 24th September. Download an exclusive track below.
