Anthiliawaters is a collective based on one simple need, a sound track for starting your day. It’s the music score for that first cup of espresso, that hangover, or when you are sitting there half awake eating toast trying to motivate yourself to go get dressed for work. For those sexy moments that music these days just can’t give you. Whatever the case maybe we are here for you. So relax and breathe deep as we get you going. From the deep soulful intro track “The Glades” with it’s deep dub baselines and sexy vocals welding themselves to a heavy electro-house grooves, to the dark 808 sounds of “Midnight”, we will take you with us on our sound track to life. Our one objective is to make moments not music for moments. So what is Anthiliawaters? It’s sexy breakfast electro resistant to time coming from here and there.
Miami's Isophlux label has already provided a launch pad for electronica heavyweights like Lusine, Lexaunculpt and Gosub, but now the imprint's just limbering up for a second life, having been off the radar since 2001. Isophlux spearheads its return with Anthhiliawaters, a project once described as "breakfast electro" (an odd idea given support by the label's website). This is far more than mere music to eat cereal to: the production taps into a Detroit-influenced vision of the future, with warm, jazzy synth pads supplying a melodic counterpart to the softly crunching, electro-tinged beats. The bizarre breakfast theme rears its head once again on 'Morning Coffee', in which a voice tells you to "wake up" repeatedly. Crazy. Once again though the simplicity and warmth of the production wins out - this is solid home listening fare that allows its warehouse roots to show through just enough to avoid being tarred with an IDM brush.
