Premiere: Autarkic – A Number Bt Ilia. Grosz


It was the midst of the morning rush, everybody had a place to be, their own mission to complete. The buzz of the cars waiting patiently in line and the hum of the trains racing underground made it hard to hear your thoughts, drowning out the plans formulating in your mind.

Nadav Spiegel AKA Autarkic and friend Neil Cohen launch their new label Age Of Self – a platform for both music and visual arts – with a three track EP from Nadav himself. Not willing to be constrained by genre, the label won't be navigated by a specific sound, only by what the pair are feeling. For their inaugural release their mission is simple: "to bring some joy and wit to the dark and grim dance floors of our recent times." Our pick is opening track 'A Number By Ilia Gosz' – a hypnotic and melodic cut punctuated by sharp synths and stuttering percussion.
