Now, Anton Cullen is back with another incredible Single entitled “Warfare”.
Listen to “Warfare” here:
Anton is quickly proving that with his addictive, unique, and highly engaging tunes; music, as an artistic medium, can transcend the label of “commodity” and become something much more intimate and immersive. This artist does not strive to make one specific genre of music, and is clearly dedicated to the development of his music through experimentation and blending between atmospheres. Upon first discovering this artist, we were immediately struck by what may be his strongest asset: his courage to be entirely unapologetic in his assertion of his own unique identity.
Musically, Anton Cullen has effectively unleashed his wide-spanning musical tastes and influences into a giant boiling caldron, seasoned with style and flair — and much like a mad scientist, he has stirred ferociously until what has emerged is unrecognizable — an infectious monstrosity of incredible, emotive sound. It is important to note that Anton has taken on the undeniable challenge of being a fully independent artist. We find that one of the most glaring setbacks for new-coming independent artists is the lack of professional mixing and mastering that is necessary to break through into the mainstream markets. This certainly isn’t the case with Anton.
Anton Cullen is definitely one of those increasingly rare transcendent artists that doesn’t abide by the typical genre limitations and standards. Regardless of your specific musical tastes, regardless of any bias or animosity that you may broadly have against the EDM genre; the sheer uniqueness and thoughtfulness of Anton Cullen’s newest Single will inspire and ignite applause and appreciation out of even the most reluctant listeners.
It’s pretty damn refreshing to hear somebody so incredibly versatile pursuing music. Shying away from the typical clichés of both of the genres that he borrows inspiration from, Anton Cullen has a remarkably unique style and sound which he maintains throughout his tracks. While Anton certainly pays homage to the greats; he frequently veers away the genre’s increasingly tired tendencies, making the listening experience feel entirely new and unpredictable.
This artist will almost certainly be continuing his rise!
