Fraxinus emerges from temporary suspension with a monolithic 6-track offering on his new self-release label Powerplant. This is his debut EP Position [Displacement], carved from a solid block of Devonian granite.
After a 4-year dormancy, the Amsterdam-based artist returns with a 30 minute transmission of earth-shaking kick drums, thunderous percussion and razor-sharp sound design. The label’s inaugural release simultaneously marks the first proper outing for the artist, following a run of compilation features & special edition vinyl excursions dating back to 2014.
Position [Displacement] is a journey of divergent moods & cadences, from the wistful flutes of opener 'Overland' to final track 'Laced'’s uncompromising arpeggios. Billowing melodies & piercing stabs run in tandem with a pummelling & steppy rhythm section; 'Source Code' builds steadily, paving the way for 'Pass One'’s warehouse-ready assault. The blooming, fluorescent synths of '115 (Kondo)' — named for the mythical Amsterdam club — create a mid-way moment of euphoria, before 'Larch' marches on with its clattering drums.
