Out now: Antillas ‘Human Frames’

April 25th, 2014

Life on the road is a truly unique experience. While globetrotting, one gets to experience a different cross-section of life in each passing city and with every person met. It was from his tours and travels around the world that Antillas drew inspiration for his solo album ‘Human Frames’.

Antillas wanted every song on this album to be like a still frame – a moment in time that captures all of the different people, artists, and experiences he’s encountered while on the road that somehow struck and enriched him.  He wanted to bottle up the world as seen through his eyes.

Perhaps the best word to describe ‘Human Frames’ is “eclectic”. A cursory glance at the tracklist reveals an exceptional array of different vocalists, collaborators, and musical influences. The scope of the album is impressive, and every style between large-venue trance anthems, big-room bass, dubstep, and progressive house is covered.

On the vocal side, Antillas enlisted heavyweights such as Christian Burns, Lady V, Chris Madin, Jenson Vaughan, and Fiora, who each offer their very own touch to this record. Together with his studio partner Dankann, Antillas strings together several massive tunes aimed squarely at the dance floor.

With 18 breathtaking songs, ‘Human Frames’ is an impressive achievement. By the time you listen to the acoustic version of ‘They Took It All’ (with Anki’s stunning voice), you’ll understand what a journey this album must have been. Different frames —all handpicked and glued together by the one and only Antillas.
