Hailing from Dortmund, Ante Perry has fast become one of his country’s most consistent assets within electronic music. Not only responsible for apeoffice, the agency known for throwing reputable events across Germany, but the producer has repeatedly collaborated with the likes of Tube & Berger and Kolombo and also seen releases on labels including Systematic, Kittball, Great Stuff Recordings as well as his very own Be An Ape imprint.
This release sees Ante Perry team up with a host of names in his very own studio in Dortmund. First up Belgian artist Maxim Lany is the first to accompany him in a deeply warm number named ‘Honigmitmais’, a track possessing a sullen resonating sub-bass and romantic piano stabs with male vocal coos scattered throughout. ‘XTC1’ with German artist Dirty Doering then shifts the mood, dominated by a low-end unmistakably Perry with the addition of pitched down vocals and eerie atmospherics make for a trippier track altogether.
Up third, Kittball’s leading lady Juliet Sikora joins the producer for a far more upbeat number called ‘Phoenix Humboldt’ that is comprised of playful chimes, cut up vocals and a lively bassline making this one best suited for peak time madness. Lastly Dutch producer Shimmer works alongside Perry on ‘Salty Fries’, a cut that features a salubrious arpeggiated hook, unintelligible vocals and trance-inducing synth washes to tie up an exciting and eclectic release.
