about

Like a heatwave burning the skin with no kindness, Rio de Janeiro based producer and sound engineer a_hank light things up with "Phase In", his debut EP on Domina label.

Dragging dance floor energy, bass science, and junglist feel, the EP reunite 5 killer jams from a_hank, and a remix by Ananda, juxtaposing metallic chords, modular synthesis and rusty drums with syncopated rhythms.

As our 11th statement, "Phase In" draws a personal portrait of a low-key figure from the rave movement in Brazil nowadays, breaking the limits of post-apocalyptic body music.


"Canteer" kicks off at a high pace as a hard-hitting jam with harsh snares, bold kick drums, and an evolving electro feel.

"X-tex" and "Ravo" morph fast drums with incisive stabs and nasty chords, reflecting on classic-influenced old school rave bangers.

"Assay" fuses peak-time modular experimentation and floating grooves with a breakbeat flavor.

"Kintsugi" takes us to a more mental place, with its hypnotic groove and entangled patterns.

"X-tex Midnight Scream Remix", signed by upcoming producer Ananda, brings a mysterious trance vibe with a persistent kick drum on top of echoing pads.
