Our weekly rundown of new electronic music celebrates its third birthday with melody-loving UK favorite (and RBMA alumnus) Palms Trax.
Three years! As of this week, that’s how long Shawn Reynaldo has been popping up on Red Bull Radio every Thursday, each time with a fresh batch of high-quality electronic music to share. This episode is really no different, as he’s put together a cross-section of the week’s best new offerings, along with an exclusive premiere of a new track from celebrated videogame-music composer Lena Raine off her forthcoming debut album on Local Action. Plus, we’re paid a visit by British DJ/producer Palms Trax, who’s transformed from a plucky upstart to a celebrated core member of the Dekmantel family. With his new EP To Paradise dropping this week, he talks here about the record’s Italo influences, his father’s active electronic music fandom and how he strives to balance his self-deprecating nature with the need to take his career seriously.
