Biography of Acumen
|Real name / ||Antoine Garcin|
Acumen is producer for:
Time has changed
Safari / Robotronic
Antoine, a man in the beginning of his thirty’s, a proud father and a Pharmacist can’t spend that much time in the clubs anymore but stays well connected to the club scene with his labels Time has changed & Time is now.
His love for music began early and he was always open for all genres. Discovering the After hour club “Barlive” fascinated him in a completely new way. >> It was amazing to experience, the location, people, atmosphere and the music <<, he still says today.
He has been producing his own music under the name Acumen for about two years and has managed to make a name for himself in the deeper Tech House scene; even Richie Hawtin describes him as the best breakthrough producer of the year in 2009.
Legends like Laurent Garnier, Loco Dice, Joris Voorn and Peter Kruder play Acumen’s tracks in their sets.
The season 2009/2010 looks like it will give him another giant push up the ladder. After releasing 5 EP’s so far, 2010 will see further releases on Anja Schneider’s Mobilee Records, 2000 & One’s new label Bitten, Berlin’s Upon You Records and of course on his own label.
While his music is circling and spreading across the world, his bookings as a live act are increasing rapidly-he can be booked through Upon You Bookings. His sets are dance floor orientated whilst not ignoring his Deep House roots, the warm sound that he came to love and cherish in the clubs.
