Melodize label-boss Beartrax announces his ‘Valor EP’ this July, backed with remixes from Johannes Albert and Lauer.
Since its inception in 2019, Beartrax’s Melodize imprint has consistently pushed deeply 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 catalog.
Leading the sixth release, ‘Phantom Night’ sees haunted atmospherics nestled amongst ethereal synth licks, before a cinematic violin takes center 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.
Release Date: 30/07/2021
