Deep House premiered “Away” by Tracya
Frequencies premiered “If” by Tracya “…un viaggio in compagnia di un avant Pop scintillante, ricavato da influenze IDM e progressive di grande impatto. Al centro l’emozione della melodia, libera di correre sorretta da bassi massicci o sussurrata a voce come una fiaba.” “….If di Tracya, una hit killer dalla presa solida e altissimo potenziale anthemico prog house.”
Rockerilla (n.448, Dec 2017) “…purissimo IDM che entra subito in circolo supportato dall’eleganza di un beat mai scontato e da suoni che viaggiano veloci rallentando un 4/4 che richiede l’assistenza della danza per essere assaporato in pieno.”
Feeder“…Crayon Mortel & Tracya. Following their debut releases on the label, they emerge here with the brilliant “Dawn-Dusk“, a mesmerising split-album that’s stuffed to the brim with enchanting melodies and melancholic moments throughout.”
Electronic Sound Magazine UK “Milanese label 51 Beats is adept at uncovering promising electronic producers. After the vintage synths and acid rhythms of Acid Castello’s ‘Woman5000’, the label gifts us with this more melodic split album. The first half has Crayon Mortel summoning
spacious pads and skippy garage beats on the left-field house of ‘Blossoms’, while Tracya’s segment is more ethereal, with the massed choir voices and
intricately layered rhythms of ‘Feathers’. It’s patchy, but there’s beauty to be found here.”
Crayon Mortel on RINSE FM France
Euphonics “Crayon Mortel who takes the reins for the first half of the release, getting things underway courtesy of ’Everything has to end somewhere’, a luscious jam with echoes of Gui Boratto at his Kompakt best. A track that quickly emerges into the sort of ethereal cut that Four Tet would be proud of, it’s immediate form the off that this is electronic music with soul. ‘Blossoms’ keeps matters ticking over with more twinkling melodies and unusual soundscapes, before ‘Cantalupe’ is characterised by its clever synth stabs and shrewd vocals. Mortel’s final contribution here is ‘The Third Night’. Another track that emphasises the producer’s eclecticism, it glides at a wonderful pace before it engulfs the listener in a warm glow. Truly stunning stuff, we’re sure you’ll agree.”
