Antenna Happy (the electronic music project of Nathan Pope) has been away from music for a full twenty years. He’s coming back with the excellent Pinto EP, but one isn’t enough now he’s recaptured the bug, so we also have this nice white label release of Rotor / Late, self-released on a self-named imprint. Two great, atmospheric cuts.
7/10 Laurie Staff review, 24 July 2015
Antenna Happy is the new project of a man called Nathan Pope, who was well into house and techno back in the day but gave up because of all the gigs Tiesto was getting. 20 years later, he’s back, with this duo marking his second (i think) set of tunes. ‘Rotor’ has a funkier house feel, very cleanly produced, building to a bright, beachy wave of melodic synth layers. It’s punchy and would make a fun late night groover no doubt, but it’s over on the other side that things get interesting. You could call this tech-house I guess, but not too obvious, with tech-y percussion layers on the edge of breaking up and a relaxed Chicago chord progression fizzing away til the end.
