Ant LaRock

Ant is a true master of music both on & off on the decks. His passion towards his craft is clear through his skill in making music and in his music selection. Ant first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and then studied jazz at 16. This talent filtered through to electronic music in 1999 when Ant started producing electronic music & DJing, which he instantly fell in love with.

 

Constantly innovating, bending genres and refining, Ant LaRock demands attention. 

 

Ant was discovered in 2014 when his first ever house track was picked up by Todd Terry's InHouse Records, which instantly propelled him amongst House royalty. After several more highly accredited releases, Ant was asked to do some major label releases in 2015 on Giorgio Moroder's pairing with Kylie Minogue for "Right Here Right Now" and future pop icon Petite Meller's "Babylove". Ant's contributions enabled both singles land heavily on the US Billboard charts and the dance floors worldwide. As a direct result of this success, Ant also produced a dirty floor-stomper for Charlotte Devaney's collaboration with Snoop Dogg on Virgin/EMI. 

 

During this time, Todd “The God” Terry adopted Ant as his protégé and a close friendship also formed. In April 2015, a collaboration Todd himself, resulted in the Ministry of Sound release of "Back Around" and a subsequent remix EP package on InHouse.  

 

2016 went with a bang for Ant with a fresh EP on the venerable Nervous Records and continued success with releases on InHouse, Brobot, Drop Ready, Nervous and Dopewax. Ant was also featured on Armand Van Helden’s ‘Extra Dimensional’ album with Zhao on ‘Sacred Geometry’, which came out on Spinnin’ Records and was heavily supported by and played out on BBC Radio 1. Kenny Dope then did a remix package of his track ‘Sanctuary’ (featuring Agency) out on Dopewax, which was a strong nod towards the growing respect and status of Ant within the industry elite.
