Earth Trax & Newborn Jr. – Bailando

Earth Trax and Newborn Jr.’s natural aptitude as a duo makes for satisfying results. Their partnership pricked up eyes and ears over here last year with the release of Sax & Flute on Peckham mainstay Rhythm Section, but the pair have already affirmed that there’s a lot more up their sleeve.

Bartosz and Adam have been hard at work on both their combined and solo pursuits. Under his Earth Trax moniker Bartosz released the atmospheric I Gave You Everything, on Shall Not Fade sublabel Lost Palms, while Newborn Jr. has been causing a stir with his Private Press project, charting a release on Poland’s Technosoul and locking in two forthcoming EPs for soul-searching techno label, Indigo Aera.

Now, hot on the heels of Mirage, the pair’s joint EP for Les Yeux Orange, comes Bailando/Aquamarine, a tropical tinged workout on Athens-based Echovolt records. With an extra hand on production from friend Annjet, A side ‘Bailando’ takes a solid kick and bright synth chords, and layers over nostalgia-inducing pads and signature reverberating pan flute notes. If these recent musical triumphs are a taste of things to come, we’ll have seconds and thirds please.

Bailando/Aquamarine will be released soon – available for preorder now.
