Antera is a retro-futurist dream. Linking a variety of tempos, styles and influences, LA-based DJ/producer Jarren has churned out an album of exceptional warmth and quality.
Described as “an ode to his upbringing and surroundings that left a lasting impression in his early years,” Jarren bridges the continental divide with timeless tunes for clubbing, cruising and chilling. Recorded between 2015 and 2020, Antera is 11 tracks of pure heat that traverse slow and low boogie, ‘90s g-funk and classic house, all filtered through some ultra funky analogue synth work. Along the way he rounds out the sound with guest appearances from fellow LA funk stalwarts Jacob “JD” Crouch, Damar Davis, Benedek & Brothermartino.
Crucial listening for fans of everyone from Dâm-Funk to Dr. Dre to Frankie Knuckles.
