Alt-electronic maestro Crywolf and the groundbreaking alt-bass producer AWAY have united their musical genius to form ANTAGONÏZER. Their debut EP, OMNIVIOLENCE, has officially been released under Rezz’s prominent label, HypnoVizion. This much-anticipated EP boasts the popular singles ‘STATIC’ and ‘BOW DOWN’.
Diving deep into the shadowy realms of bass music, ANTAGONÏZER's OMNIVIOLENCE is as avant-garde as it is audacious. Infused with narratives of authority, resilience, and survival, the EP is a profound reflection on the chaotic and insurgent essence innate to human nature. Crywolf's intense and unfiltered lyrical prowess seamlessly fuses with AWAY's audacious production techniques. The result? A six-track masterpiece ranging from spine-chilling to electrifying, pushing the boundaries of electronic music and revealing the intricate layers of ANTAGONÏZER’s artistic soul.
In the words of ANTAGONÏZER, “OMNIVIOLENCE is the auditory manifestation of raw energy and primal instinct. Nestled in the profound depths of the psyche, this EP is not just another musical compilation but an introspective journey. It's a head-on confrontation with the raw chaos and stark realities that define our existence. With OMNIVIOLENCE, we've embraced our internal storm, presented in its purest form.”
Both Crywolf and AWAY are celebrated as trailblazers in the electronic music sphere, amassing over 330 million streams collectively. Their solo releases have consistently topped charts and earned widespread acclaim. Having previously collaborated on three tracks, each amassing millions of streams and instant fan adoration, the decision to merge their artistic talents into the ANTAGONÏZER project was inevitable.
Crywolf, whose real name is Justin Taylor Phillips, hails from Los Angeles, CA, and is renowned as a producer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. Often credited as a pioneer of the “Post-EDM” genre, his avant-garde releases have not only won him a dedicated fanbase but also a significant commercial success. His tracks have been championed by global icons like Ellie Goulding and Skrillex and have graced the pages of eminent media outlets, including Billboard and Vice. With over 250 million online streams and a fiercely loyal fanbase, Crywolf stands tall as a luminary in the electronic music domain.
Boasting over 100 million streams, AWAY has carved a niche as one of the most promising artists emerging from the indie scene. His distinct style of electronic bass music, laced with soul-stirring melodies and evocative lyrics, resonates deeply with listeners. Often described as an amalgamation of Flume, Gesaffelstein, and Nine Inch Nails, AWAY's music is influenced by his passion for alternative and industrial sounds. Steering clear of genre constraints, he crafts music that is refreshingly unboxed.
