Tuesday Tunes: AN21David Akermanis | Tuesday, June 15th, 2010 | No Comments »
Being the younger sibling of Steve Angello must come with its perks. Antoine Josefsson aka AN21 appeared out of nowhere in 2009 with two rather large collaborations with his brother, ‘Flonko’ and ‘Valodja’.
The cuts were two of the year’s biggest singles for the Size Records posse, and ‘Valodja’ in particular became something of an anthem for the Ibiza summer crowd, immediately teeing up the youngster for an international career. Since then, AN21 has quickly embedded himself in the Size family, gaining respect through association.
A production partnership with San Francisco DJ Max Vangeli, resident of the city’s long-running Ruby Skye venue, certainly shows signs of future fruition. The pair’s progressive cut ‘Gama’ was recently included in Pete Tong’s Essential Countdown, and their mix of Steve Angello’s ‘Monday’ from late last year was a favourite amongst the share-o-sphere.
