Anthony Arcana aka Ayarcana is a Berlin based producer and DJ that truly embodies the heavy hitting, relentless, acid-tinged, industrial menace that he creates and routinely executes clubbers with at any gig he plays. Originally from Italy, Anthony normally listened to metal whilst often playing guitars and drums in various bands during his time a sound design student. Being a student eventually led him to electronic music, specifically break core and IDM. Books, art and especially movies played a major part too, with all these individual elements finally conjoining to help forge the sound he is known for today. Strong, hard and dark sounds have an overwhelming importance in his output. Distorted basslines rip up the fabric of his productions and the DJ mixes he constructs are a testament to that approach. Sonically Ayarcana is comparable to UK producers Ansome and Ossian who he’s collaborated with many times since coming to prominence in the few years he’s been at the forefront of the underground techno scene. Leading this vanguard in that respect has led to extensive touring all over the World including bookings in the most hallowed of techno mecca’s Tresor.Berlin. A place he relishes playing for the sound system alone. He’s also gained invaluable experience
