10TRAX#35: Journeymann Trax

Hosted by Undermad

Thanks to @journeymanntrax - This week's mix comes from the New World, specifically from Canada; which in recent years has seen its characteristic sound pumping all around Europe. Bobby Draino aka Journeyman Trax might ring a bell due to his contributions to the label 1080p. His album “Smoke Tape”, which combines ambient harmonies with a filtered analog sound, pushed us to get in touch with this week's contributor. In his 10TRAX he takes us in a journey (excuse the pun) through electronic and ambient sounds. When we asked him about his thinking behind the selection JT told us that “these are all tracks that are important to me for different reasons. It might be that a song has a deep connection to a certain time in my life, as most of our prized musics tend to have. It might be that a certain track puts me at ease or allows me to open up a channel of creativity. Either way you look at them, these happen to be some of my favourite tracks. I enjoy listening to them as i hope you will as well.” We would like to thank Bobby for his mix and for making us discover this music! - TL 01. Laraaji - Moon Shadows 02.
