Premiere: Anton Borin - Forrest Jam EP - Monog Records


Berlin Mixtapes - Anton Borin - 038

We are proud to announce that we are to continue our partnership with Berlin label Monog Records. Linking up with our good friend and label owner Bruno Otranto, we will will be premiering Monog Releases over the coming months. A very exciting partnership and we can't wait to showcase the amazing sounds from this lovely imprint. This is a label that has been making waves for some time and has certainly attracted recognition and respect on the Berlin circuit.


In addition expect interviews and guest mixes from label artists as we welcome back our Berlin Mixtapes series too. Next in line is Anton Borin to Monog Records, kicking off the Spring season with his superb debut, Forrest Jam EP. Based in Moscow, Anton is responsible for a raft of releases across several labels. His work is championed by top jocks around the world and we’re delighted to have him here. Ronan Portela also joins Monog with a solid debut on remix duties. He boasts an equally impressive release count and support base.

Kicking off the release, Forrest Jam sets the tone with an atmospheric blend of tech and deep house which is laced with expertly crafted sounds and FX. A melodic interlude on the break takes us to the deeper finale. The original mix of Free Ride is up next, delivering eight minutes of quality deep tech. Darker basses and gritty synths are at play, joining a more cosmic inspired groove with an epic feel. Ronan’s remix of Free Ride rounds out the release, taking us on a sublime, deep and minimal journey filled with trippy filtered sequences and bubbling basslines which drive the groove. Wholly infectious and perfect for the later sessions.
