Listen to the first two singles from An-Ten-Nae’s forthcoming ‘Acid Voodoo’ LP
CE favorite An-Ten-Nae (real name Adam Ohana) is coming off an amazing few sets at Envision Festival‘s landmark tenth anniversary celebration. While down in Costa Rica, the veteran bass producer performed once as An-Ten-Nae and again under his DnA alter-ego alongside Dov1. However, that’s not all that going on in An-Ten-Nae’s world. He’s gearing up to embark on his Acid Voodoo tour in a few days.
While on the road, he plans to steadily release music from his forthcoming album by the same name. Of course, fans can count on hearing many of the LP’s unreleased tracks being played out live for the first time on the road. Ahead of Acid Voodoo‘s May release, Ohana has already begun steadily teasing singles from the full-length project. He’s released one track per month, with the Morillo-assisted “Twilight” arriving in mid-February and “Do You Believe In Magic” landing this past Friday.
Whereas “Twilight” utilizes more exotic textures and worldly tones, psytrance-tinged builds, and indigenous chanting vocals, his latest release is a heavier bass production that keeps listeners riding low at the sub bass line. At the same time, both fall under the umbrella of Ohana’s “acid crunk,” a signature stamp which calls up psychedelic-tinged, bass-heavy hip-hop beats. This is music that is amorphous, atmospheric, organic, and entirely free form; all the things An-Ten-Nae has championed in his chameleon sound over the years.
An-Ten-Nae is an instrumental figure on the west coast—from his role producing legendary events at San Francisco’s iconic 1015 Folsom, to his signature “Acid Crunk Compilation” series, which helped define an era of bass music, to releases that have helped lay the foundation to what is now the “West Coast Bass” scene. One thing is always constant for Ohana, and that is constant evolution. With over 200 releases under his belt, as well as collaborations reading far-and-wide with artists like Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Dirtwire, and Desert Dwellers, listeners can count on Acid Voodoo already being a taste-making piece of work.
