We recently had the pleasure of getting to know the wildly innovative and highly skilled composer/performer/session musician Anton Cullen.
Anton Cullen is a highly sought-after and widely revered composer and session musician based out of Dublin, Ireland. Anton has been steadily gaining exposure and mass acclaim for his incredibly versatile composing/session work and has recently developed an incredibly unique take on the EDM and electronica genres. Showcasing an innovative combination of electronica, ambient, dance, post-minimal, and trance; this composer has certainly crafted a sound that he can distinctly call his own.
Anton has recently expanded upon his already extraordinary range with his venture into the EDM genre. This on-the-rise artist has been meticulously crafting his inventive debut into EDM with a yet-to-be released album. Judging by the newly released Single entitled “Breaking Through”; Anton is utilizing a diverse palette of influence and crafting an album that effectively reinvents the wheel and carves out an entirely unique sound.
Hear for yourself! Listen to the immersive and dance-inducing Single here:
While Anton has only recently took on EDM genre, he has already had quite a remarkable music career leading up to this new venture. You may already recognize Anton’s distinct musical style through his earlier catalog, including the acclaimed debut instrumental album entitled “Attic Melodies”. This artist has already gained a profound reputation within the industry for his vast work in composing, live performance, and session work. Through this work, he has cemented his reputation as an ambitious artist who is well-versed in pop, rock, gospel/worship, electronic, jazz, and classical music. It also is impressive to note that Anton also balances his time working as a choir director and music instructor.
It is an unfortunate reality in the current world of music crafted by today’s generation. It seems as if fearless, ambitious artists are becoming more and more rare and undiscovered. This is mostly due to an unapologetic desire by most new-coming artists to shamelessly reach into existing successful markets, void of any integrity, and follow an incredibly safe musical formula of commercially appealing and catchy copy of a copy Singles.
While this approach may work well if your goal as an artist is to make fast cash, albeit becoming forgettable, it certainly isn’t the winning formula for industry longevity and lasting notoriety.
In a refreshing twist, the multi-talented and musically ambitious Anton Cullen is fiercely rebelling against this trend and quickly emerging as a fresh EDM sensation.
The audio production exhibited in the freshly released Single is nothing short of spectacular. This is especially remarkable considering the music itself is ferociously dynamic and unrestrained; we imagine this must have been very challenging to mix. Each layer within the track is uniquely stunning, with each complex sound given space to breath and evolve. This definitely an artist that you need to WATCH CLOSELY. We are certainly eagerly awaiting what he does next!
