Agenth took its initial form as a playground of two friends and former bandmates from way back - Jussi Karvonen and Uolevi Holmberg, started jamming again during the dark months of 2005-2006. We had shared a mutual taste before as we love the music of bands like Kyuss, Tool, Meshuggah and Ozric Tentacles (to name a few) ..now toying around with fast bpm, Suomi sound -induced rofl lolz and various beat styles thrown together.
Since then, the feeling and taste of The sound has matured into slower bpm, progressive, kind of hybrid sound. Being all time curious of the cutting edges of progressive, techno, house, psy, glitch, step and bass music - to throw a line. What crosses them all, is their swingy rhythmic touch and hypnotic build up. That defines a lot of what thrills Agenth in electronic dance music.
The flip side of the thrill side, being a long time practitioner of the aboriginal Didgeridoo and having a playful touch with the throat singing traditions of Central Asia.. not until recently have dared to blend these massive spectrums into the setting. Ready maybe?
Agenth will be releasing an EP on Planetaria Recordings on the first quarter of 2014. Deep and proggy swinging. Also new soft and gear has been purchased for extending, crushing and morphing the human voice. Can't really wait to try a deep kargyraa singing with some qlitching and lfos. Meanwhile, been falling in love with the 2step beats. Rubbs the brain. Will see how these will work together out with a hybrid approach.
