Anton Zap - SUBCULTURE EP - Apollo / AMB1509
Following his stunning Apollo debut album *Water* in 2013, Anton Zap AKA Anton Barbashev, the Russian electronic pioneer returns to the label for another foray into his highly distinctive, deep, and ever-evolving productions. Without doubt one of the leaders of the burgeoning generation of Muscovite electronic producers, "Subculture" sees Zap building on Water s seismic achievements, expanding on his trademark luscious house sound into verdant new areas. Once again, as we've come to expect from an Anton Zap record, the production is impeccable, with sounds ranging from the blissed-out hip-hop stomp of "Free Fall" and crunching beats of "One Week", to the slender, mysterious jazzy breakbeat workout "Incident" and dubby space-tech of closer *Pauspapier*. A vital release from one of electronic music's most original and singular voices.
