Anoluxx Releases His First Single of the Year, ‘ID666’
Following the release of their debut track ‘REALM333’ towards the end of last year, anonymous producer Anoluxx has rolled out his newest and first single of 2023 titled ‘ID666.’
Whilst keeping his futuristic sounds intact as with his previous releases, the new single further branches out his artistry that explores cyberpunk and deep techno. “‘ID666’ begins with ethereal atmospherics, slowly taking you into the record’s mechanical stream,” read a press release. “As its drum sequences begin to build underneath the mix, with each kick stuttering against its structure, ‘ID666’ gradually expands in depth.” The single is accompanied by an equally riveting video that features the anonymous DJ. In addition to his debut single, Anoluxx also shared ‘ID777’ and ‘ID444’ last year.
