It’s been a minute, but I’ve got something from the Minimal Wave family to write about. Specifically, this comes from Cititrax, a Minimal Wave imprint that holds modern artists on it (and I use that term somewhat loosely). Some of the producers on here have cropped up as recently as last year as their current iteration, but what you’ll hear within Cititrax is the stuff of the cold wave era – Minimal Wave‘s trademark. The cover showcases superimposed Polaroid shots taken within New York clubs in the 80s, which capture the fey glamour of that much written about scene/era all too well. These tracks will make you feel like you’ve set up shot in one of those sweaty nightclubs. Each track has drug fueled elasticity, supplemented with a filthy bass line. “Modern, uncompromising and guttural” are Cititrax has to say when describing this and I couldn’t agree more.

The Details

Cititrax is excited to present the first in a series of 4 song samplers showcasing the talents of some of the most innovative producers of the moment.

The overall sound can be described as modern, uncompromising and guttural. Each artist reinvents dance music by bringing their own unique vision to the floor.
