In our view, there are so many talented people in the Hague producing their own music, but since the underground music market is not that big and interesting commercial wise, they rarely get a record deal. That’s why Antilounge offers a recordlabel and platform featuring these new talents, giving them the audience and attention they deserve.
The Hague has been known to offer progressive electronic music for decades. Genres such as electro, dubstep, jungle, industrial, tekno, grime, breakcore, worldcore, IDM, noise drones and terrorsalsa: they’re all represented on the Antilounge albums.
NEW RELEASE : RAW BROS – LET IT RUN
At first Alkaloid mainly made it’s name in the international breakcore underground by touring together with the home-based Unfinished Monkey crew but Rob finds even breakcore too constricting and tries to shift those boundaries as well. The demo/EP in 2012 varies from peacefully flowing Dub, IDM and Garage permeated by psychedelic, filmic passages, that, through many spherical and stylistic shifts, often builds to an explosive and expressive postrock climax. Live the wall of sound was enforced by Thomas Van Den Reydt (Monomyth) or Barend Spaan.
