Artist Review #2: Anton Cullen – Breaking Through EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With great pleasure, we are bringing back one-man EDM powerhouse Anton Cullen to the platform, and for very good reason.

Since our previous review of his single “Breaking Through”, the elite producer has put together an EP of the same name, featuring two more very diverse and mind-bending singles that clearly shows evolution of Cullen‘s artistic merit and versatility.

First new single is “Heaven On Earth”. An uplifter with a very subtle intro that eases into a solidification of melody, progressive measures, and a nostalgic euphoria for the ears. It’s a great track that really shows a whole different angle to Anton Cullen and his innovative take on EDM and production value. It’s a toned-down, feel-good song that definitely expresses a unique and universal tone that skyrockets the likability factors of this EP altogether with this single alone. In essence, this is a track that is impossible to dislike.

Shifting over to a different shift of moods, we have the second and final fresh single “Warfare”. Where Cullen really kicks it up a notch with some very effective twists and turns and video game pacing that really puts the throttle into overdrive. With some 80’s influences into the mix, we have a modern take on some of the classic root-elements of electronic music with some industrial touches, making this song one of the most versatile listens you’ll run into on this EP. From tempo changes, fast keyboard action and masterful production elements, this song really puts out a relentlessly energetic feel that will likely put your mind into a physical plateau of musical lust. It’s a brilliant track, and some of Cullen‘s best work to date.

All 3 songs from this EP (including the self-titled track we previously reviewed) are all different sides to a brilliant producer well on his way to something much bigger. Each song brings different components to the table, and even though you never hear the same thing twice, you can still sense that it’s coming from the mind of the same creator. If you haven’t discovered Anton Cullen yet, you’ll be glad you did now.
