DNB Dojo Mix Series 51: DJ Trax

The latest entry in our exclusive mix series comes from a bona fide scene legend as we welcome DJ Trax to the Dojo decks! With over 25 years experience in the scene and releases for the likes of Moving Shadow, Outsider, Paradox Music and many more, Trax has been plying his breakbeat-driven style across the world and shows no signs of slowing down.

For his Dojo mix Dave has gone in with a selection of drumfunk riddims including cuts from his brand new EP for Tempo and forthcoming music from Djinn, Tim Reaper, Ilk and longtime collaborators Nucleus & Paradox. If you appreciate the art of break chopping then this one is for you!

You can check out the mix via Soundcloud below or head to Youtube or iTunes to stream. You can also grab a download from Google Drive.

Classic Track: DJ Trax – The Beat Freak

beatfreak

Wind back to 2006 and the (now largely forgotten) drumfunk style was at a relative peak, with artists like Macc, Fracture & Neptune and of course Paradox chopping up the breaks on the regular. One of my favourite tracks from this era remains The Beat Freak by DJ Trax. Released on Paradox’s Outsider label and featured on the Nucleus mixed The Age Of Outsidersthe ambient-influenced compositional approach sounds as fresh today as it did then.

Lovingly chopped funk breaks provide the backbone of a tune under simple, soft melodies, giving the track at once an insistence and a laid-back vibe. Check it out below and relive the glory days of choppage.
