Ant-Zen

Ant-Zen

Profile:
Full name: Ant-Zen audio & visual arts.
Selfpromoted as Industrial Music, Chilling Ambient, Technoid Rhythms & Power Electronics.

Ant-Zen is deduced from "Anti Zensur" (= anti censorship).

Ant-Zen is the most important label in the newer German Industrial scene. It started in the early 90s as a tape label that later also released vinyl and cds. Mastermind S.Alt (Stefan Alt) also did most of the layouts and packaging of the releases. While the earlier releases are more into noise, the new output has a more technoid style that is still very experimental.

Ant-Zen was the German distributor of a lot of other labels and ran a small mailorder until 2019.

Ant-Zen is the most demanding and interesting experimental Noise Label for at the least the last 10 years!
Which is not only for they are excellent trendsetters, but also because both main protagonists (Christian Palentin and Stephan Alt) are most friendly and charming charachters. Stay the way you are!

Most Ant-Zen releases with "ikon" cat #s are merchandise such as shirts, mugs, etc. Only ikon 1, 2 & 4 were used for music releases.

The "jed" cat #s were used for a series of four 7" releases in 1994. It is unlikely that the "jed" prefix will be used for any future releases.

ant-zen, or Anti-Zensur in it's full name, is a label that focusses on quality music with an experimental feeling. be it noise, dark ambient, drones or full on digital hardcore ... it's good if it's released on ant-zen (of course, this is subject to personal opinion :)
