We Move As One
For those who know Antigone and DEMENT3Ds co-founderFrancois X, it is impossible to draw the line between theircollaboration and friendship. Three years ago, when the duo beganexchanging tips on records, production techniques and gears, theyhad nothing particular in mind. This strategy, or lack thereof,revealed to be much more beneficial to both. One night of 2013,Francois X invites Antigone to DSCRD's studio ' a creative bunkerin Paris suburb that was DEMENT3D's inner circle headquarters atthe time. This friendly, spontaneous session quickly turned into acreative workshop and by the end of the evening, 'The Hated SZ'was already there. As you may imagine, projects spanning over sucha long time can be risky. You get lost, but that's what the boyswanted. While slowly affirming their personal sound signature, theywere crafting new textures, where their mutual sense of fine dancemusic and detailed production would hit a new freedom threshold.Francois X admitted to be under the spell of Aposuspita, an artperformance and mystical character created by French artist LauraO'Rorke for which he created the soundtrack. The result is adouble-EP, the soundtrack of a powerful rite de passage betweenreality and fiction. A carefully crafted dance music record that tellsa story and alters your mind. Just like Aposuspita sucks the painaway from her tribe, Antigone & Francois X's 'We Move As One'offers a modern day catharsis to the listener. After three years ofwork, what began as an innocent one night stand turned into one ofParis most exciting release for year 2016.

The Parisian scene has grownfrom a sparkle to an organized community of like-minded people, sohas the relationship between those two bad boys, and we are proudto crystallize this wild energy on wax.
