My name is Sasha. I was born in Ukraine, (then a part of the Soviet Union). I currently live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In the mid-2000s I started writing pop-oriented music and releasing it under the name Renkas. After a while, I started searching for a more care-free and direct approach to making and recording music. That’s when I began the Antenna project. I got my sounds from the unexpected errors and limitations of hardware equipment from the ‘80s and ‘90s, recording tracks on the fly.
Under my Antenna project, I played live sets, DJed, and released music on labels like Clone, Pinkman and Beats in Space. Then I decided that it was time to take a break and work on a full-length album. I recorded hours of jams in my studio in Rotterdam and then took a small set-up to Kiev, so as to edit and finish the tracks there.
My friend Kai Hugo, who I’ve known for many years since we both released music with NON Records, approached me with the idea to start a music label. This became World Of Paint. ‘Quiet fx’ will be the first release. Together we worked on the visual concept of the label and created the videos for my album.
Antenna ‘Quiet fx’ is distributed worldwide by Clone.
