Artist to Watch: Anton Zap
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Who: Anton Zap
Where: Moscow, Russia
Although he only began releasing records in the past couple years, Anton Zap is no newcomer. During a seven-year residency at Moscow's famed Propaganda nightclub, Zap honed a serious love for soulful American house, disco, funk, and gospel, but when his party abruptly ended in 2005, he began producing his own tracks. Acclaimed for their combination of deep house and classic Detroit techno, his releases have quickly led to high-profile gigs both inside and outside of his homeland; his foreign debut was at Berlin's Panorama Bar in January.
