Celestial Trax

Represented Worldwide
– also available featuring Rozay Labieja

Celestial Trax is a producer, composer and DJ. Dividing his time between Brooklyn and Europe, the multi-instrumentalist has crafted a unparalleled voice within the club scene and electronic music landscape. The artist’s sound – a mixture of ceremonious, psychedelic, and heavy hitting – is traceable across his myriad of productions, as well as his live and DJ sets.

After releasing two EPs with NYC’s Purple Tape Pedigree and a trilogy of EPs for Rinse, his debut full-length – Nothing Is Real, is an arresting evolution from his previous work. Released on PTP in the fall of 2017, the album moves into a surreally daedal and undefinable sonic realm, psychedelia and electro-acoustic compositions.

He frequently collaborates with fellow artists. The four-track compilation – Thru Our Eyes Vol. I features Jay Boogie, Quay Dash, Dai Burger and Rozay Labeija. The EP was released on NYC’s Escape From Nature; label founder and producer Orlando also collaborated on the project. 2016 saw the release of two EP collaborations between Celestial Trax and House of Labeija’s Rozay: New Flesh [PTP] and Roaches [Loveless Records // Materia]. Celestial Trax and MC / vogue artist also performed live for Boiler Room in New York, MoMA PS1 Warm Up, and at SXSW the same year.

Celestial Trax has toured extensively in Europe and the U.S., including appearances on Boiler Room and at SXSW. In 2016, he designed the soundscape for The Bug, a LACTIC Incorporated fashion performance, wrote and performed a live electronic score to Jan Švankmajer’s ALICE (1988) for Loveless Records, and produced the soundtrack for queer slasher film, The Killer Unicorn (2017).

“‘I Can Do That Too’, from the New Flesh EP, features Roosevelt on the mic and a mean tresillo shuffle, all wrapped up in an overarching sense of threat. It’s a haunting take on ballroom MCing and a reminder of how fertile the New York underground has been lately.” FACT Magazine • The 25 best club tracks of 2016

“Celestial Trax is still one step ahead, unflinching in his quest to create the undefinable. But these days the palette has changed and his tracks have evolved, become even more WTF?! and, most importantly, have dived right off the deep end, a full-scale immersion in that imagined dystopia.” Mixmag

“Celestial Trax continues to move away from the constraints of traditional club form and function, segueing into compellingly murky sonic territory. The EP’s fragmented structures are steeped in subtle shades of light and dark that will cement Celestial Trax’s position at the vanguard of a new generation of producers reformulating the DNA of the current club music landscape.” Dummy
