Earth Trax should be no stranger to loyal readers, having consistently remained in our periphery since 2017, staff writer Jonathan Mcmahon has reviewed all three of his albums for Shall Not Fade. Now the revered Polish producer steps up to release his first album for Barcelona’s ever expanding imprint Lapsus Records.
Earth Trax, real name Bartosz Kruczyński is prone to delivering melodious swathes of house, ambient, breakbeat, IDM and acidic melancholies – displaying just how adept and versatile he is. Written and produced in Warsaw, ‘Closer Now‘ is a 10 track album exploring downbeat electronica.
Inspired by liminal spaces and evoking surreal and dreamlike qualities, Earth Trax’s latest album ‘Closer Now‘ engulfs you in dense layers of warm trance-like textures, acidic jams and downbeat IDM / electronica. Swerving into fervent territories, ‘Today‘ delivers deep waves of pads, downbeat drums and heartstrings of emotions. Reserve this one for jaded sunrise sessions.
‘Closer Now’ is scheduled for release on 24 February via Lapsus Records. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
