A groundbreaking new artist emerges as rising dark, minimal DnB producer Ainonow makes his debut with the release of his forward-thinking ‘Exile’ EP. Serving as the launch point for his induction into the New England-based Goop Troop Collective, this innovative project is set to redefine the boundaries of the Bass music genre and captivate listeners with its unique sonic journey.
“My message is simple and it’s connected with why I make art. My hope is that listening to my music is a cathartic experience for my listeners and a way for them to feel seen and understood. I want it to connect them emotionally to their darker feelings and realize that it’s okay to feel these emotions, it’s part of being human. I also want it to act as a conduit so that they can channel this energy into something helpful, comforting, and somewhat healing.” — Ainonow

Kyle Kroeck is at the helm of the enigmatic music project Ainonow. His musical journey began playing the viola in an orchestra at the age of nine, where he began to fall in love with music. However, the classical world alone was not enough to satisfy his musical curiosity. Swirling in and out of bands while playing bass guitar, he experimented with different styles until eventually discovering underground electronic music and Hip-Hop. Inspired by the hypnotic beats and hard-hitting Bass of these genres, he dove into electronic music production and the infinite timbres permitted by this new approach to music creation.
With such a diverse background and range of influences, Ainonow’s tracks traverse a broad spectrum of sonic landscapes. Combining elements of dark and heavy DnB, broken beat halftime, and experimental Bass music, he takes his listeners on a musical journey soaked in organic textures. As one of the most forward-thinking, rising artists in the world of underground electronic music, Ainonow’s music speaks to the power of experimentation and the limitless possibilities of creative expression.
