Antonio De Angelis – The Relative Size Of A Planet EP (incl. Ed Davenport remix)

October 14, 2010

After the summer break Safari Electronique are back, with a vengeance. Kicking off proceedings we welcome back label regular and hot property, Antonio de Angelis. Whether under his own name or that of his alias Toni D, Antonio has consistently turned out exciting releases on a number of great labels. 2010 has already seen him release music on Paulatine, Off, Climatic Sound, and he is fresh from his debut 4 track EP on Steve Lawler‘s VIVa MUSiC. A key mover on the London party scene, Antonio is now building a strong reputation through his music. His last appearance on Safari was alongside label chief Arnaud Le Texier on June’s ‘Down Is The New Up’ E.P. . We are all aware of his House talents, but today Antonio reveals a darker, more sinister, but oh so welcome side, on ‘The Relative Size Of A Planet‘ E.P. Four original tracks (Neptune, Two Venus, Dark Mars, Saturn) from Antonio transport us from the sun filled terraces of previous releases to the equally hot, and undoubtedly more sweaty Berghain’esque floors. This is classic material, created for big systems. On the remix of ‘Dark Mars’ is Berlin-boy Ed Davenport, who adds his own brand of industrial muscle to the elegantly deep original.
