Another week, another stunning new release on Anjunabeats.
It was only a matter of time before US talent Adrian Alexander and Aussie act The Antipodes were picked up by Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats label and rightly so. Their debut single ‘Nyquist‘ on the imprint is absolutely mesmerising. ‘Nyquist’ radiates an atmosphere so enthralling you won’t be able to pull yourself away.
With its blissful atmosphere and astounding build-up, this link-up between the two rising acts truly is out of this world.
“This really is a lifetime dream come true. I remember being a 14-year-old kid sitting in my room with a bunch of crappy hi-fi speaker trying to replicate all the tracks that I loved hoping one day something would be good enough that Anjunabeats would sign. All I could think of was my name next to that iconic Anjuna A!” Jared Rieger aka The Antipodes exclusively told Trance Project on his label debut.
The Aussie champion also shared the inspiration behind the track: “It was the beginning of last year and I had just relocated to Berlin to look for work and cheaper living. That turned out to be less true than I thought Ha! I was also struggling personally with creating music after personal life difficulties and lack of lift direction. I had just settled into my new flat and was feeling a burning desire to create again. I created the chords to Nyquist and sent them over Adrian, who I’ve worked on several collabs with, and track just sort of clicked! Before we knew within a couple of weeks we had the final version in our hands.”
“The track is called ‘Nyquist’ in reference to Nyquist theorem. We both have science degrees, and all of our tracks have had some theme of science to them. Incidentally, it turns out that a horse named Nyquist had won the Kentucky Derby (which takes place ten minutes from Adrian’s apartment) a couple years prior, so we figured the title was all too fitting.”
The new release will enchant listeners all across the globe. Listen to ‘Nyquist’ below and get it here.
