Northern powerhouse Perseus Traxx is on spaced out form with this four-tracker celebrating ancient Greek mysticism. Basslines as deep as sunken treasure, acid that’s worthy of the psychedelic origins of its name, and synths that spin off into infinity make up an uncompromising, mesmerising EP.
Perseus Traxx / Mantra – Acid Avengers 015 [AAR015]
For that 15th Acid Avengers split EP, Tripalium Corp welcomes two providers of acid music who know each other very well, as they’re also associated in the duo Nite Vision. On the A-Side, English producer Perseus Traxx, known for his raw house & electro bombs on Bunker, Solar One, I Love Acid or his own imprint Future Flash. On the B-Side, Barcelona-based producer Mantra, also know under his aliases Myriadd or Acid Phreex, and responsible of several ravey bangers on Pinkman, Creme Organization, Bunker and Polybius Trax.
Perseus Traxx – How the Mighty Fell [SBOX009]
Perseus Traxx makes his Schrödinger’s Box debut with a 4-track EP of experiments forged in the depths of Northern England. Pristine plateaus and eerie sweeps cover the entire first side, a Perseus Traxx from 2090, shimmering in and out of phase within a murky acidic landscape. Introspective and thoughtful throughout. Timothy J Fairplay finishes off the final quarter with a summer-garden Techno banger.
Northern Powerhouse – Northern Powerhouse [NP006]
Northern Powerhouse kick things into gear on their sixth release with snarling and grizzly analogue bass on the A and machine heavy percussion and distorted tones on the flip. One for dark rooms and deafening sound systems
Nite Vision – Sight Beyond Sight [WOD006]
New from Nite Vision who are Nigel Rogers (Perseus Traxx, Northern Powerhouse) and Craig Stainton (Acid Phreex, Mantra, Monofonix, Myriadd) with a slamming techno track plus a wicked remix from Canadian mainman Rennie Foster, pressed on limited edition, hand stamped & numbered one-sided black vinyl housed in a white paper sleeve with a printed insert info sheet.
Perseus Traxx – Simulacra [DWT004]
Distant Worlds present their fourth transmission from the multi-talented, Perseus Traxx. He delivers four deep, warm and fuzzy takes of analogue goodness that fit the Distant Worlds aesthetic perfectly.
Northern Powerhouse – Slapdash Bass [NP003]
The full range of frequencies have been lovingly captured and set for eternity into nice and solid, hand pressed plastic before being bound in gorgeously minimal white paper ”inners”. Adding individual nuance to each and every record, is a stylised image of the visionary York philanthropist, Joseph Rowntree. Details of which tracks are which are lovingly incorporated into this image using a black ink to stand against Mr Rowntree’s brilliance. The hand screened label, uses the latest in dual pizza/kitchen table printing technology™ with a tried and tested lounge floor drying system to ensure any moisture is gone before the vinyl is shipped, so that transport weight can be kept to a minimum and savings passed on to you.
Northern Powerhouse – House Of York / Bell Pit [NP002]
Alex Handley (Auto Sound City) and Nigel Rogers (Perseus Traxx) catch up on a regular basis to casually jam out on various machines in a Kippax basement, then edit, twist and re-jam them in a York flat. Housed in a white paper sleeve, this is a fantastic example of beautifully handcrafted Yorkshire electronics, with a distinctively raw and rustic feel. The label, screen printed on a kitchen table, is a reflection of the punk ethic of the duo just doing as they please to please themselves.
Perseus Traxx – Drowning In Your Eyes [GNOSIS003]
Following well received EPs from Myriadd and Q-Chip, Gnosis are ecstatic to have prolific UK producer Nigel Rogers (aka Ellis De Havilland, Operator Tracey, Orpheus, Pagan Ritual, Sir Leon Greg etc.) on board for their third release. ‘Drowning In Your Eyes’ is a four track EP recorded under his Perseus Traxx handle.
Perseus Traxx – More Songs About Girls [LVNO011]
A great pairing here as the rugged basslines, emotional melodies, and vintage percussion of Perseus Traxx seem right at home on the Love Notes stabel, who seem to be taking a quick break from showcasing artists from their homebase of Brooklyn, as they have on their last 4 records. More Songs About Girls is a cohesive EP of 4 original tracks and neither fans of this artist nor fans of this label will be disappointed.
Perseus Traxx – Creatures From The Edge [HM010]
Perseus Traxx makes his debut on Hissman’s Hardmoon London imprint with a unique set of acid-free sonic experiments.
Perseus Traxx – Hypnotic Groove Mix 118
Perseus Traxx – Take Your Chance [BAR008]
Killer old school analogue hardware jacking acid tracks by Perseus Traxx. Expect those raw bunker/acid planet vibes on this new Barba release.
Perseus Traxx – 716 Exclusive Mix
Perseus Traxx – Secret Gang 001 [SG001]
Perseus Trax returns to wax with this first outing on new imprint Secret Gang. Three scorching hot electro/acid excursions. Bustling percussion and squelching synths meet head on, resulting in pure dance floor destruction.
Perseus Traxx – ILA007 [ILA007]
Seventh release in the I Love Acid series. Perseus Traxx in action with some lush acid techno – melodies submerged in deep reverb amongst clattering drum machines and 303 snarls. All original analogue kit, all the real deal.
Perseus Traxx – The Magic Garden [TC003]
Next up on Titanic City is Nigel Rogers AKA Perseus Traxx. He has been a staple part on most record bags, a man dedicated to performance outside the box. There’s a rough and raw DIY feel to this music that makes it jump out of the speakers and arrest your attention, as is always the case with Titanic City.
Perseus Traxx – Goddesses Of Inspiration II [FLR012]
18 months after Perseus Traxx brought us his first E.P, dedicated to four of the nine Muses of ancient Greece, Flight Recorder now brings you the second installment dedicated to four more Muses, on “Goddesses Of Inspiration II”. The feel is the same as before with jagged cutting tones jammed live then edited down. Heavy synths and scattered drums perform an ode characterising the appropriate Muses, as tangled wires and a pair of hands wrench the overload of inspiration they give from basic machines. Once again Perseus’ release on Flight Recorder is a unique set of acid-free sonic experiments, that sometimes feel as cold and edgy, as they do warm and carefree.
Perseus Traxx – Dr Burisch [COTF006]
The new release from Perseus Traxx ‘Dr Burisch’ on Crimes of the Future, is a four track soundtrack to some forgotten alien abduction documentary… maybe. Starting off with ‘Rainy Tuesday’ and its skipping pitch shift melodies, and followed by ‘Lotus Protocol’ and its almost Richard D. hook. On the flip we have the title track, slow and building, very much the ‘theme’ of the piece. The EP finishes with ‘Electrical Surge’, and its static crackle of radio interference and damaged power lines.
Perseus Traxx – Harmony Of Elements EP [PF007]
Perseus Traxx, aka Nigel Rogers, is returning to Photic Fields with a four track outing. This young Briton has time and time again shown his ability to sculpt soulful soundscapes using the building blocks laid down by Chicago House. Harmony of Elements is further proof of this. From the outset lush key strokes are laid down, warmth and texture brushed with subtle beats. Percussion patterns are used to scaffold achingly delicate bars. Autumnal tones swirl amongst warm winds and colder currents. Darker moments are present, nightskies bruise under weighty bars. M>O>S man ASOK is on remix duty, blotting “Grey Skies” with his ink-stained sounds; eclipsed moods balanced with honeyed notes. Harmony of Elements sees Nigel Rogers full range of ability on display. There’s a revived and renewed complexity to this layered EP. A landscape of emotion is lovingly created, edges are smoothed and richness flows.
