Since its inception in 2019, Beartrax’s Melodize imprint has consistently pushed deep, musical house and techno with contributions from John Tejada, Fort Romeau, Carl Finlow, and many more standing alongside Beartrax’s original productions throughout the label’s back catalogue.
Leading the sixth release, ‘Phantom Night’ sees haunted atmospherics nestled amongst ethereal synth licks, before a cinematic violin takes centre stage. Johannes Albert’s remix peppers elements of the original with
slick acid lines and punchy drums, re-imagining the dramatic violin for a fresh and highly entertaining take.
On the flip, the uplifting ‘Valor’ runs through a series of modulating basslines, glistening pads, and sizzling drums, topped off with a majestic cello performance throughout. Rounding out the release, Lauer adds rubbery low end, floating keys, and hands-in-the-air piano stabs to ‘Valor’ for a high-energy end to another stellar EP from Melodize.
Beartrax ‘Valor EP’ lands on Melodize on 30th July 2021.
