“Originally Renaissance was created in celebration of Quentin’s daughter birth. It evokes a mixture of both ecstatic, joyful feeling but it is also tinted with doubts about all the unknown attached to such an event. We then add some world influenced sounds to keep a touch that we like to have in our production and to give a sense of space and feeling of reverie and voyage. . .

We like to let the listener making his own interpretation of the song. We don’t like things to stay rigid, and love the idea of a kind of happy nostalgia. Renaissance was created at sensibly the same time as our track ‘Kyoto’ and ‘Rwanda’ so it shares a similar energy, or at least we wanted to link these three songs together in some way. ”

[ Artist Bio ]
Angara portrays a landscape where seemingly opposed emotions are woven together.
Combining sensitive and soothing melodies with engaging rhythms and atmospheres, their music conveys the feeling of getting carried away in the world of the listener’s own imagination.

It all started in the late 2000s when Loris & Quentin met in the south of France, sharing their first music productions as teenagers. Almost a decade later, life brought them back together and shaped their musical complementarity into a proper tandem project.

They released their very first single “Side Roads” on music platforms in 2018 and it ranked #14 in Spotify’s ‘Top 50 Viral France’, followed by their downtempo track “Memory Lane” which brought them attention outside their native country. Shortly after, they started collaborating with influential YouTube channel and label ElectroPosé on several releases such as “Vision” and “Drive” that reached Deezer’s most-followed playlist.

They have then twisted to a more danceable vision and a true desire to bring their music to the dance floors and festivals, releasing two driving Melodic House EP “Rwanda” and “Prove” respectively on Monstercat Silk and Enhanced Music Colorize which received big supports from the likes of Lane 8, Above & Beyond, Sultan + Shepard or Don Diablo.

The name Angara originally comes from the eponym river in Siberia. It originally referred to natural elements and the movement/flow of it – ex : freedom of the water streaming along the valley and the imagination of landscapes.

[ Release Info ]
With their brand distinct brand of melodic house, French duo Angara portrays a landscape where seemingly opposed emotions are woven together. Their latest creation “Renaissance” beautifully epitomizes this sentiment as they lure us into a deeply comforting listening experience.

In a few years, Angara has ascended to become one of the rising stars of melodic house in France. The duo has not only appeared on ‘Viral 50 – France’, but has also received support from industry titans such as Lane 8, Above & Beyond, and Sultan + Shepard for their nostalgic sound. A year ago, the duo decided to dive into a more danceable aesthetic with their music and released Rwanda and Prove respectively on Monstercat Silk and Enhanced Music Colorize. Even though this is the style that put Angara on the map, with “Renaissance” Angara leans into an introspective mood while simultaneously carrying that dance-friendly style they’re known for. The track was created in celebration of their member becoming a father, making it no surprise that “Renaissance” is imbued with emotions that range from pensive to joyous.

Angara possesses a knack for creating journey-like experiences through bright soundscapes and organic textures, and this is exactly what we’re welcomed to on this release with Stereofox.
