Boasting a cinematic energy that deeply snags the soul of those who take the time to listen, STRX has outdone himself on the release of “Shadows,” featuring Ava Silver. Showcasing thick basslines and trap-influence in the percussion, the melody is strongly brought out given the other structural elements that are in place. As heavy as it is melodic, there’s several aspects going on here that put it’s hooks within the listener, all of which were painstakingly selected and blended into the creation here.
Set to release on Frequency Music, this is one of many indications that this guy is on the way up. Containing immersive atmospheres and influences of trap, bass and psytrance, STRX goes big here and sets the tone of what the rest of the year will be like for this guy.
“In the midst of the pandemic, I found myself feeling hopeless and somewhat depressed sometimes. The negative voices in my head naturally transferred onto the music script, even though I was trying to make uplifting club music. As a result of this crossover between energy & vulnerability, ‘Shadows’ was born. Due to the extent to which this feeling was relatable to Ava Silver, we managed to make a vocal that perfectly connected. All in all, we created a piece with a message that I hope people can relate to and get empowered by.”
