Hybrid, mutated strains of rave music with influence from the sounds of Detroit, London and Berlin – Aquarian makes raw, arresting and immediate music aimed squarely at the dance floor.
His sound draws from both sides of the Atlantic, combining Drexcyian electro, old school jungle and UK grime with vertical singularity. The Canadian born, Berlin based artist broke out with a trio of records for UNO NYC, with his 2014 self titled EP cementing him as an artist to watch while landing him a mix on Resident Advisor's coveted podcast series.
Since then he has released records through his own culinary-rave imprint, Hanger Management, described by RA as "Aquarian at his best: searing club melodrama, built from whip-crack breaks, ground-splitting bass and acrid techno adornments. Most recently, his debut collaboration with Deapmash as AQXDM on Bedouin Records has been lauded by leading publications while drawing support from Aphex Twin, Ben UFO, Objekt, Avalon Emerson, Dax J, Emmanuel, JASSS and more.
