Incoming! We take a trip to Cork today, as we premiere a brand new track and first listen of ‘Close To Me’, the second solo release from Ant of the renowned Generic People.
An established visual artist, graphic designer, disc-jockey, VJ and music producer based in the creative hotbed that is Cork City. Ant has built his reputation as part of the Generic People collective, who have notched up a well-deserved standing for tearing-up clubs and festivals alike with their cutting edge Audio/Visual DJ sets and full live band shows.
Now for the first time, Ant is releasing music as a solo artist with a fresh, original sound that is highly influenced by his first love of disco and raw electronica, styled by his sublime live DJ sets, as much as they are by his studio sessions and personal record collection.
Following up on his critically acclaimed debut solo EP on ISM Records, Ant of Generic People delivers a slice of straight up club goodness via Irish label Lefty Shades Records. ‘Close To Me’ is aimed at those who prize experimentation and innovation over instant dance floor appeal.
Influenced by, and crafted for his own eclectic DJ sets, this dance floor weapon bridges that 4am ‘deep into a session’ gap between disco, house, tech and any other labels you want to throw at it, as that 5 minutes of escapism on your headphones.
Listen to it, stream it, share it, support Irish artists. You can purchase ‘Close To Me’ here.
