Brighton-based Producer & DJ Braxton makes his return to Anjunadeep with the stunning three-track Indigo EP.
Following his acclaimed My Stripes remix collaboration with Marsh, Indigo EP demonstrates why Braxton has become such an in-demand producer with a truly unique and exciting sound. After revisiting each track during the 2020 lockdown, Braxton wanted the Indigo EP to explore how the previous year’s restrictions changed people and forced many to look internally.
One of the highlights of the recent Anjunadeep 12 compilation, title track Indigo is a sumptuous and exotic creation, featuring dreamy flutes combining beautifully with cascading synths and shimmering breakbeats, building to a euphoric crescendo.
Opening with gentle, glistening beats backed by a hypnotic female vocal refrain, Wilderness then bursts through with a powerful energy and an explosion of vibrant synths and percussion, symbolising a new hope. As Braxton says: “It’s about uncharted territory. Inspired by the empty streets and the hope of coming out of this nightmare as wilder but happier people.”
Final track, Sakura, closes the EP perfectly. Openly gradually, akin to a tropical flower as the majestic beats continue to build throughout, Sakura is about the feelings of renewal and optimism, experienced over the last 12 months.
