AN21, a prominent name in the electronic music scene, has made a triumphant comeback with his latest single, “Liquid Gold.” Released under the esteemed SIZE Records, this track represents a decade-long journey of self-discovery and artistic evolution for AN21. His resurgence in the music world is not just a return; it’s a rebirth, marking a rediscovery of his artistic voice and vision.

“Liquid Gold” is a captivating blend of melodic and afro-house elements, offering a refreshing yet deeply nostalgic musical experience.
