“The track -Ascent- is a real gem in the genre of downtempo. Noticeable and distinctive rhythm, sometimes reminiscent of classic trip-hop and warm ambient layers. Its hypnotic effect is guaranteed.”

“Трек -Ascent- настоящая находка в жанре downtempo. Выраженный и характерный ломаный ритм, местами напоминающий классический trip-hop и тёплые слои ambient. Гипнотическим эффект гарантирован.”

AONIAN brings his new single 'Ascent', fusing melodic, trippy electronica with Mediterranean soundscapes.

The first glimpse to Aonian's world as the first single of his upcoming debut album, it showcases a blend of contemporary electronic synths and swirling melodies, colliding with dreamy traditional and ethnic soundscapes.

With references to traditional and folk elements from his home country, the Greek born and London based producer successfully pays homage to our past and present whilst remaining loyal to an ever-changing cultural identity.

Having already established a trusted reputation in composition across media and brands (including Louis Vuitton and Glossier), AONIAN emerges from five-years of conceptual and instrumental experimentation, delivering a refreshing sound, listeners need.

His recent remix for the Glastonbury brothers - Speakman Sound - has been supported and played by DJ John Digweed in a Bunker Sessions set and his upcoming debut album has attracted interest from the likes of London start-up Remixology HQ and the recently awarded music blog Give it a Spin.
