Premiere: Earth Trax – Fade Away


Piles of photographs lay strewn across the floor, smiling faces and caught-off-guard expressions looked up at her. A scrapbook of times gone by, a collage of adventures and journeys she'd no longer forget. But these were more than just pictures, more than just memories. Without them she'd have forgotten everything but thanks to these, nothing would ever fade away…

Following his debut on Shall Not Fade last year with long-time collaborator Newborn Jr., Earth Trax returns to the label for his first LP under this moniker. Also known for his musings under his given name Bartosz Kruczyński, as well as The Phantom and one half of duo Ptaki, Earth Trax is just as comfortable crafting ambient downtempo cuts as he is dreamy breaks and driving cold wave. LP1 showcases his knack for different styles and sounds, bringing together different influences from early IDM to house, breakbeat and minimal synth.
