Many people know Antoine Garcin for the two very successful labels he runs, Time Has Changed and Time Is Now, but you would be wrong in thinking these was the only arrows to his bow. In fact he has many and being a talented producer is one of them, as Richie Hawtin recognised when he praised him as the best breakthrough producer of 2009. With many releases to boast under his artist name 'Acumen', which have been put out by labels including Diynamic, Upon You, as well as his own imprints, he is now gracing Leena music with his presence for his latest EP "The Guardian".
With his style firmly planted in the tech house scene, legends such as Laurent Garnier, Loco Dice and Joris Voorn have used his tracks in their sets and "The Guardian" is set to follow a similar route to fame. With bouncing, warm chords, and building synths, title track "The Guardian" will fill a room with deep sounds and energy, whilst "Personal Feeling" keeps the warm bounce afloat and introduces a soulful vocal. B side track "Numa" has a more stomping bass line with a slightly twisted and mysterious vocal, and B2 "Over and Ever" seems to bring all the elements together. With a bounce and punch, warmth and mystery, it's the perfect conclusion to a fine collection of tracks. Enjoy!
