Glenn Astro and Hulk Hodn are connected through a long-lasting musical friendship. With their Detroit-inspired house releases, they gained wider recognition by critics and listeners alike. Nevertheless, they’ve never been one-dimensional artists. Berlin-based Glenn Astro‘s diversified approach to production as showcased on labels such as NinjaTune and Tartelet bridges the gaps between ambient, hip-hop, techno and bass.

Ahead of their new full-length record Ghosts via Kommerz Records on August 26th, the duo kick starts by dropping singles “Deep” featuring super talented singer AGGi from Aarhus and lo-fi garage beat “RX5“. For “Deep” producers Glenn Astro and Hulk Hodn invited Danish singer AGGi (formerly known as AGGi DiX) to refine their spacious and detailed production with psychedelic layers of neo-soul vocals.

The young songwriter explores her desire for intimate and meaningful encounters with herself, explaining,“I wrote “Deep” in a period of time when I was frustrated about my life situation and how my relations were going. I was not paying attention to the ones I love and I was not paying to myself either. Music was my only friend – and enemy – at that time. I wanted to be accepting and let go of my ego.“

B side track “RX5” is a deep, but hard-hitting solo instrumental featuring progressive UK garage aesthetics and a funky bassline. The duo develops their exploration of new aesthetics even further through synthesized soundscapes and numerous collaborations with young talent from all over the world.
