Shakti Collective is proud to present its next gathering, "Apparatus". Apparatus, a tool to move the universe around and to help restore order on Earth. This gathering is also a celebration of Canada's 138th birthday. For that matter, we are proud to present one of the best Progressive trance acts, Antix.

ANTIX (Iboga Records – New Zealand) LIVE!
Based in Auckland New Zealand, Barton and Hayden Strom are the producers behind the project ANTIX. The Strom brother’s dedication to pushing their style in new directions in the ever evolving Progressive Trance genre has made them one of the emerging acts to watch for in their scene. Both Barton and Hayden were introduced to music at a young age listening, to music from their parent’s vast record collections. They quickly became addicted to the hypnotic sounds of Trance in '95 when a friend handed them a tape urging them to check it out. Barton instantly purchased a mixer and started DJ'ing at small parties in the growing Auckland scene. Six months later he had moved to Japan to buy studio equipment and teach himself the art of production, and Hayden later joined him. Together they returned to New Zealand, setting up various studios around Auckland and refining a sound, which really came together once they moved to the West Coast of the North Island and set up Slow Burning Studios in '99. The sound that seemed to evolve was a kind of minimal organic groove influenced by the European sound being played by DJ PHILIPP from Plastik Park and ANTI from Spiral Trax. It wasn't long before a connection was made when Philipp toured Australia and New Zealand in 2000, and ANTIX were signed for their first 12", "Rainstick," on Plastik Park. Over the years the two have managed to put a few of the "big ones" under their belts, playing the U-Site Fusion Festival in Germany, The Boom in Portugal, and The Rainbow Serpent in Australia. And now three years down the line, ANTIX completed their long awaited debut album "Lull" released on the Danish label Iboga Records. The duo are currently touring the globe for the third year, they are only half way to completing this tour, but so far its been a huge success, playing parties in Denmark, Sweden, Croatia, Japan, the Voov Festival 2003 in Germany and then in London, where they played alongside other respected kiwi artists for the annual New Zealand music night at club Fabric. And now to continue the tour ANTIX will play in Portugal, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Austria and then to finish in France. On top of this they’ve also been involved in Auckland label Manta. The label has just released its second 12" and third compilation "Subduction" featuring a excellent selection of New Zealand and international, Progressive/Psy-Trance which are all available from Cyberculture Records at (www.cyberculture.co.nz). So at last... Here comes the second full length album from ANTIX - "Twin Cost Discovery." Since their first album - "Lull" - released on Iboga Records in June 2003, ANTIX had major success with their very groovy and unique style. They have been playing their live set at a great number of events and have made a very good name for themselves in the scene. Now two years later, Iboga Records is proud to be releasing another well produced album. From start to end the Strom brothers take you on a journey deep into their soundscapes. You can truly tell that ANTIX has spent many hours making this album come true, and once again they surprise with their style, going in a new direction.

Some go to Japan to climb Mt Fuji. Others go for the sake, sushi and karaoke. In 1996, Aucklander Barton Strom moved there to buy music equipment.

"They had a really big secondhand range [of gear]. You know, keyboards racked up like surfboards," he says. "It was an electronic music lover's dream really. At first I was making crude-type beats but I was just stoked to be making anything because I didn't really know what I was doing."

His brother Hayden, who was snowboarding in Colorado, heard about the music his brother was making and joined him in Tokyo.

"It was like a bug really, and we just found that we worked well together writing the tracks," says Hayden. They've been making music - a mix of house, trance and dub - as Antix ever since. Their second album, Twin Coast Discovery, is available now and they play tonight at the Studio on K Rd supported by fellow electronica duo, Pitch Black.

The brothers returned home from Japan - laden with music gear - in or around 1998. And for the record, the pair did climb Mt Fuji, not to the top, but they saw the sun come up from its famous slopes during an all-night dance party.

"Tsuyoshi Suzuki, one of the gurus over there, was playing this outdoor festival on Mt Fuji and we drove all the way from Tokyo, or maybe we were in Nagoya at the time, and it was killer, with thousands of Japanese people on top of this hill with the sun coming up. That's what this music is designed for."

Exactly what Antix sound is, is a hard one to answer. "We always have trouble with it," says Barton. He lists off terms like "housey", "progressive house", "techy house" and "slightly trancey", then concludes: "We don't really see ourselves in the trance genre. We see ourselves slightly in the trance [area] because we have the atmospheres that trance has, but then so does house ...

"It's dance music, that's what it is," he says.

"That pretty much sums it up really," agrees Hayden.

Antix is far from the manufactured barrage of synthetic beats usually associated with trance. Theirs is a more organic and natural sound with hints of the New Zealand dub influence, made famous by Pitch Black, and bands like Fat Freddy's Drop and Trinity Roots.

The brothers record a lot of natural sounds - including everything from putting a microphone in the fridge to nature recordings - and "chuck" those into their music.

"We try and keep away from the clean digital sound," says Barton. "We like our beats to be ... you know how the hip-hop guys cut up records and they've got that grainy feel, we like that same vibe. And like Hayden says, getting sounds that are outside the machines gives the music its flavour and its texture."

"There's also a lot of mood, even melancholy, in our tracks too," adds Hayden, "and it's also about a journey."

The duo's first break came in 2000 when they hooked up with DJ Philipp, from German label Plastik Park, who was touring New Zealand. That meeting lead to their first track, Rainstick, being released overseas and was also the start of a successful foray into the European market.

In 2001 they toured Europe for five months - they've been back every year since - and in 2003 they released their debut album Lull on Danish label Iboga Records.

Similar to drum'n'bass duo Concord Dawn, the brothers take turns to go on tour. In two weeks Hayden heads to Europe for a stint to promote Twin Coast Discovery which is in stores over there now. "It's a better way as well because when there's one person on the tour you make more money," says Barton.

They say for one hour playing live in Europe you can make NZ$3000 which, when you consider they do 20 or so gigs in a season, isn't bad money.

While one's on the road the other looks after their company, Slowburning Studios, which produces music for TV
