At the beginning of March the first album “Fear of the Unknown” by our producer “Agency666” will be released – which we can expect with great excitement.
Working on his album in the past few months has been exciting and a significant journey for himself.
Last year and with his debut in the label, he started with his track “Lover’s Revenge”. An absolute success that landed on a large number of playlists within a few days and has built up a high reach in a very short time.
What is behind the name “Agency666”? With the real name “Arda”, he lives mainly in Istanbul and studies temporarily in America. It is very multifaceted (maybe the next projects are already waiting: @psychocharmant) and still down to earth. In addition to music, he also runs various fashion label projects.
I would describe him as someone who clearly knows what he wants and who always improves his knowledge and deals with the changes.
His sound is more than profound and this shows what you can merge from different elements. That is exactly what he claims! Personally, I have never received a demo from him, which is like a listening sample sent in beforehand. Rather, it is always a further development and trying it out again. That is exactly what characterizes his first album for me, which could not be more individual.
The first track, which he would like to call “Hope you don’t Mind”, offers us an impressive introduction. As openining into his emotional world, this is really a successful intro track. The sound design of the track is very special and it uses three different tempos (deep tune, breakbeat, drum and bass). In addition, the beginning is melodic, but is supported by a really fat bass line.
“Running from Ghosts” catches up with that. I would rather call the speed of the track uptempo. The sound design is so varied, however, that it conveys that it can also go faster. The track gives 1: 1 exactly what it should be and that means for me to run away. But not for the reason that you are afraid, but for the reason to organize your thoughts and refocus.
Up to this point, I think his sound has swept us away. Now it’s time for us listeners to stay tuned. Therefore short relaxation and a sigh of relief – “Interlude666”
The next track in that order was released on 19/12/2019 as a coupling to the album (source: Beatport). “Deep Sleep” is the name of the good piece and was able to build on the past success.
Influencer @StellaBossi from Berlin had a short video about the track. Check out their content and let yourself be enchanted by their unique way.

With the next track it will be a bit more mysterious again. It feels like we’re trying to escape the police in an getaway car. Whatever we can do and we’re going straight to the dark. The synthetic encore at 2:00 min naturally supports my panic feeling, but with the use of the beat it gives me hope that we will make it. It’s like a little story that life writes. All in all, as a label owner, I am absolutely swept up here and I really want to know how it goes on.
We went through a trip with a lot of ups and downs! “Story of Dr. Gilbert” leads us straight into a new world. The seductive melody, led by a hard drum and bass tune, lets the sun rise and slowly leads us to the end of our journey. This track also contains a lot of varied elements that make it very valuable. You just notice that “Agency666” took time to work out all the subtleties. That’s how I know him and that’s how I like him.
The last track “Understand Me” brings us to the end of this journey of the first album from “Agency666”. This was also uncoupled on 23/01/2020. It was even so successful that it was included in the “ReleaseRadar” by the Spotify algorithm.
For me as a friend and more or less as an artist manager for and from Agency666, I can only recommend you to take a closer look. The album is no follow-up to his first big success “Lover’s Revenge”. But that’s not exactly what it’s supposed to be, it is supposed to create the opposite, and in what way you embark on your own journey.
