At this point it's safe to state that Polish artist Bartosz Kruczyński probably lives in his recording studio. He enthused us with “Baltic Beats II“ - which was released under his own name - last year, he's one half of the shamelessly underrated duo Ptaki, he publishes disco/house-infused goodness as The Phantom, and this forthcoming March he'll return under his trusted Earth Trax moniker.
Simply titled “LP1“, the album marks Kruczyński's debut for Shall Not Fade, a stunning musical love letter to clubland that confidently cites the heydays of breakbeat, cold wave, house and early IDM.
“The LP was recorded as an extension of some of the artists moodier singles on Shall Not Fade sister imprint, Lost Palms. It explores a more experimental approach towards House music, whilst drawing influence from some of his more downtempo style releases as Bartosz Kruczyński. LP1 features the stunning photography of Kasia Zacharko & graphic design of Kaja Kukuła.“
“LP1“ is limited to 300 copies worldwide and will be released on March 6 via Shall Not Fade. Listen to the album sampler below - and pre-order the album here.
