Following his most recent lead single “Flip The Switch,” An-Ten-Nae returns to WAKAAN with his full-length EP Is There Anybody Out There.
The renowned West Coast producer cultivates an eclectic mix of seven solo tracks for this transformative and otherworldly EP. The extra-terrestrial sonic experience is brought to life via An-Ten-Nae’s intricate and individualistic sound design. An array of transcendent atmospherics and technological glitches amplify the imagery of the mysterious and unforeseen universe. The assembly of An-Ten-Nae’s deep, gritty bass lines and cascading synthesizers are at the centerfold with each track delivering a unique interpretation of his West Coast Bass sound.
While each track is an impressive testament to An-Ten-Nae’s artistic prowess and musically rich EP, several standout tracks for myself are, “Shake The System,” “Freaky Fungus,” and the titular track “Is There Anybody Out There.” As An-Ten-Nae describes, “This New EP, explores the boundaries of deeper dub fused with west coast flavors.”
Is There Anybody Out There by An-Ten-Nae was released on Friday, April 1st, 2022, via WAKAAN.
