Coming soon - qd08 anthéne - balance

Hi friends!

Hope you’re well :)

New release announcement time - so pleased to welcome one of my favourite artists to share their interpretation of quiet details, one of the finest exponents of ethereal and melodically immersive sound-worlds - Brad Deschamps as anthéne.

Out next Wednesday 13th September x

Revered artist and curator of the wonderful Polar Seas label, Brad’s unique style of ever-expanding sonic creations has been evolving for many years - seen through his vast back-catalogue of solo works and collaborations - with releases on labels such as Home Normal, Hidden Vibes, PITP, Oscarson, Dronarivm, Whitelabel Recs, Archives, Ambientologist, Constellation Tatsu and many more - and collabs with qd favourites Ian Hawgood (as Rosales), Stijn Hüwels, Simon McCorry, Andrew Tasselmyer, IKSRE and more.

Fusing electronic explorations with electro-acoustic manipulations and field recordings - this new album, balance, is anthéne at his very best.

Taking the qd idea and in his own words:

“Embracing imperfections.

Finding aural balance with amplified hiss, static and white noise in unison with melody. Magnifying the smaller details.”

I also collaborated on a couple of tracks as Fields we Found - Brad sent over some pieces, I worked on them here and then returned for him to create the final versions. Lovely to be a part of it - and of course mastered here too.

Limited edition CD with long-form version and Bandcamp digital available as always.

This is a gorgeous and blissful album, huge yet full of intimacy - so looking forward to sharing it with you all x

So much anthéne to check out - here are three of my favs (although could easily have chosen many more!) - highly recommend digging for all his work, all just so good.

Rosales are anthéne and Ian Hawgood - enough said!!

Exciting times! Out this time next week - more then!
