The reason for this success is, simply, his music. Unlike many young DJs, Anton refuses to play ubiquitous “in your face” tracks, insisting instead on music that demands more careful listening, music whose truth is in the details.
If that runs counter to mainstream commercial trends, Anton couldn’t care less. “There are a lot of DJs who want to get big to make a lot of money. But I don’t want to compromise just to go up the ladder. I want people to come and hear me, of course, but I want them to be there strictly for my music. If there’s a way for me to grow and keep that vibe, then I’ll do it. But I am not going to compromise. I want to be able to enact my vision without restraint. Otherwise, I don’t really see the point.”
As well as hosting his own intimate events where he showcases cutting edge International and local talent, Anton is currently a resident at Monday Night Social; LA’s longest running weekly club night.
