In an age of digital perfection Traxx is analog; when he DJs he plays vinyl and when he's in the studio he uses hardware. His sound recalls the past but pushes for the future with an overtly emotional and experimental approach. In addition to releasing music for other imprints Traxx also started his own label Nation in April of 2007 which has allowed him to develop and recontextualize the various aspects of his sound.
But it is perhaps on his many mysterious 12"s that Traxx has set the ground work for this his first solo album in the last five years where there's been a constant stream of them burning up dance floors with their wild new jakbeat sound recently releasing an 'Adjustment Production' for Gavin Russom of DFA's LCD Soundsystem for a sombre tingling cosmic, deep disco brilliance concept and also releasing with another New York label Rong Records adding the quite excellent Mutant Beat Dance to their roster with this excellent release Another World/New News Is Old News to releasing a stunning solo-project on MOS Deep Under The Poetic Painter M pseudonym, with a frenetic yet hypnotizing house track that echoes memories of downpitched Newbeat material and the hooky coldness of new wave.
"Traxx is possibly my favorite DJ in the world. And while many DJs can't successfully execute their ideals in their own productions, his music is exactly the kind of amazing stuff that he would spin. His overwhelming passion for great music comes through in his production. The pinnacle of his art, whether he is DJing or producing, is his ability to seize the moment and make crucial changes only when they are necessary. His art is not just a 'back to basics' approach, but a refinement of styles that have been abandoned for music with slick transitions and needless ornamentation. This is Jakbeat in its rawest form." Tadd Mullinix aka James T Cotton, Dabrye, Saturn V, 2AMFM, X2
