Inspired by a mythical, self-devouring serpent.
Berlin-based producer Aquarian is releasing his debut album, titled The Snake That Eats Itself, this February via Bedouin Records.
Listen next: JD Twitch presents a synth and industrial mini-mix
Drawing influence from the ouroboros, a mythical, self-devouring serpent that symbolises the infinite cycle of birth and death, Aquarian folds tape saturation and dense noise into ambient passages. Its industrial percussion rhythms were crafted from samples of a construction project that took place next to his apartment during the album’s development.
The Snake That Eats Itself follows Aquarian and Depmash’s AQXDM LP, Infrared – one of our favourite records from October.
