After sending “S​cala” to Berlin, twirling his “H​élice” in London and colonising “Baptême” i​n Cologne, Agoria declares “I​ndependence” i​n Barcelona.

An anthem that’s been a highlight of the summer for Maceo Plex and Agoria, the date of release for “Independence” has finally being fixed.

Agoria on “Independence”:

“​Since I moved to Paris last year, I have had the chance to meet amazing artists including the Russian pianist Mikhail Rudy and the sound designer of the movie Gravity, Nicolas Becker. The three of us are animated by curiosity and the will of playing with our specific boundaries. I guess this is just the first step symbolizing our state of mind: Independence. When I met Eric [Maceo Plex] in Ibiza last year, we instantly connected, we both can play all kinds of music so I thought Ellum was the place to release it.”

Agoria’s debut release on Ellum is an equally sinister and experimental affair. Apocalyptic drum crescendos are broken up by warm synths tones and washed against baritone basslines on the title track.
