Hybrid, mutated strains of rave music with influences from the sounds of London, Detroit, and Berlin – Aquarian makes raw, arresting, and immediate music aimed squarely at the dance floor.
His sound draws from both sides of the Atlantic, combining Drexcyian electro, old-school jungle, and UK grime with vertical singularity. The Canadian-born, Berlin-based artist broke out with a trio of records for UNO NYC in 2012 and has since released records through his own culinary-rave imprint, Hanger Management, while collaborating with Caen-based producer Deapmash as "AQXDM" on Bedouin Records and Houndstooth.
Recently, his high energy and eclectic mixing style has found its way into Berghain, De School, Tresor, and Unsound Festival, while his releases have drawn support from Aphex Twin, Nina Kraviz, Ben UFO, Objekt, Avalon Emerson, and more. 2019 brought his LP debut, "The Snake That Eats Itself," to Bedouin Records, expanding on his stylistic hallmarks to include industrial-flecked IDM, drone, and pop through a cinematic lens, while collaborating with acclaimed artist and researcher Sougwen Chung on a live A/V show.
