But this year new ATAXIA records will come out on Planet E Communications, 20/20 Vision, This and That label and the groups 4th release on Seth Troxlers Play It Say It. We are happy to feature 3 new tracks by ATAXIA on our label Trapez.
The EP opens up with "Your Mind" an energetic tour de force that works in the fashion of a stream of music, kind of live played all funky & full of live.
A firework of rhythmic music and you can sense a lot of their material might be in particularly devised for a live PA.
"Serves Madness" is equally hi-energy and pulls you into the track with its rhythmical determination to rock the dance floor. There is no time for the dancer to be lazy.
"No Reason To Panic" is a drum machine powered fast paced piece of techno with a deadly funky programming, raw and without any compromises.
