PALMS TRAX

Astral People are proud to present Palms Trax’s majestic return to Aus for a string of summer dates.

Drawing from a vast array of cosmopolitan influences, Palms Trax has cultivated his own twist on house that is so beautifully distinct it elevates him above all else in the game. The Bristol native now bases himself within the avant-garde underground music scene in Berlin, crafting a unique blend of Chicago and Detroit house that is as nostalgic as it is innovative. Taking inspiration from Chicago jazz as much as the late 80s powerhouse Nu Groove records, Palms Trax unmatched talent lies in his ability to create a signature sound that situates itself within the past, present and future.

Signed to Amsterdam-based label Dekmantel alongside innovative artists such as Vakula and Matrixxman, Palms Trax has also remixed tracks for influential record labels like Hivern Discs and Let’s Play House. His signature use of hazy synths, swelling drum patterns and smooth house melodies that straddle the Chicago-Detroit axis, are simultaneously perfect and unpredictable.

Following the explosive Australian tour in 2015, we’re ready to welcome him home with open arms, catch one his diverse performances at Melbourne’s Sugar Mountain Festival, Astral’s own Summer Dance in Sydney and sideshows around the country this summer.
