Plastic Platform: C21 Antwerp
The delightfully heterogeneous producer known as Antwerp kicked up a bit of a stir on the internet this week with the unveiling of new tracks, such as this one that we premiered as a download.
This is down to the release of forthcoming EP, Permanent State, which is out on September 24th via digital label Noise Praise; and if you're into your subtly warped electronica with a playful Seams-vibe, then go and investigate. Listen to his mix for our Plastic Platform series below, and be sure to read the rather lovely intro below - and stream the EP here.
"This mixtape is made up of tracks to drag your mind over the stars, to explore the hidden realms of sonic dismay and chaotic geometry.
Since I was a kid, I always lost myself in feathery, ethereal thoughts. Growing up I discovered electronic music and I loved how the intensity of repetitive sounds could let my mind float away.
In my opinion this music reveals 'symbolic archetypes', deep inside our heads. A universal language that everyone knows and no one can define. Something that escapes from the extreme control of time and space. The exciting thing about music is: when you talk about it, everyone has a different impression about what they have been listening to. No matter what I say, you will always find something peculiarly different in the mix I made up here. It happens. I hope you enjoy listening to it."

The 'Plastic Platform' series continues this week with a bone crushing 53 minute mix from Faws. The one thing we know about Faws is that he's from Dublin. Actually, we know two things: he's from Dublin and he released a pretty wonderful EP late last year called Antonym, which we throughly recommend you check out. [read more]
Welcome to the third edition of 'Plastic Platform', our new mix series for 2012. So far we've had mixes from STRFKR, and Keep Shelly In Athens, both of which were amazing. This week's edition is brought to us by J£ZUS MILLION - a young man from the States who we're pretty obsessed with here at The 405. Once you've given his mix a listen, head over to his Soundcloud page and listen to all his jams. You won't be disappointed. [read more]
