Release Date - 16th November 2018
EARTHTRAX was formed in 2016, taking inspiration from many styles but with a shared focus on high quality bass driven music. Our musical productions can vary and span across many genres, including Dubstep, Reggae, Dancehall, Jungle, Techno, Electro and Ambient, but are unified by a common approach to production. We care a great deal about how we present our music and physical formats are integral. Externalising ideas and making song concepts manifest through art, both sonic and visual is imperative to us as a label. We aim to provide a platform that supports creative freedom and encourages artistic expression regardless of medium or form.
The ETX series focuses on sound-system oriented and vocal material. To kick off the series this first release consists of two tracks from two of the guys behind the label, Obeah & Prynox, longside Rider Shafique.
Track A 'Fix Up' is propelled by militant drums and thunderous baselines which support the sublime vocals Rider Shafique. Both the vocal and instrumental deliver a contemporary but authentic sound
Track B 'Influence' is undeniably of a UK sound with references to Grime and Dubstep, but holds on to strong Dub/Roots characteristics which are key to the ETX series.
