    REVIEW – CHRISTOPHER ANTON Ginger and Nuts

An Electrifying Journey through Time and Melody!

From his electrifying time with Information Society to his later ventures with the synth-rock band Pseudocipher, Anton has solidified his position in the synthpop Hall of fame. Reuniting with original band members Paul Robb and James Cassidy, Anton co-wrote several tracks, culminating in releasing the EP “Oscillator” and the full-length album “Synthesizer” in 2007.

During his tenure as the frontman for Information Society, Anton mesmerised crowds of up to 20,000 with his captivating performances across Oregon, California, New York, New Jersey, and even Brazil. Not content with that, he embarked on a thrilling collaboration with electroclash pioneer Isaac Junkie, delivering the infectious international dance track “I’m Lost in You.”

Anton’s solo endeavours further solidified his talent and dedication to the synthpop genre. His first solo EP, “Your Perfect Tragedy,” released in November 2008, showcases his collaboration with producer Nick James and live performances featuring Nick James on keyboards and synthesisers and Donna Jean on keyboards, bass, and percussion.

In 2010, Anton unleashed a dance maxi single, a spectacular cover of Visage’s 1980 hit “Fade to Grey” that will leave you yearning for more. He delivers with his captivating full-length album, “Destination:X,” released through the esteemed U.S. Synthpop label A Different Drum on July 20, 2010. This limited edition CD is a synthpop treasure that can’t be missed.

Anton’s dedication to his craft remains unwavering, evident in the release of an incredible remix EP featuring new renditions of his track “In Silence” from “Spaceships and Dreamers” on March 1, 2013. This collection and additional tantalising B-sides will ensnare your senses and make you crave more of his melodic magic.

Christopher Anton’s “Heartbeat One” is the perfect dance track to transport you back to the glory days. Prepare to be captivated, swept away, and downright obsessed with this synthpop sensation. Embrace the magic and let your heart synchronise with the beat of Anton’s remarkable talent.
