Fox Trax Records represents the Moscow based techno/house record label, managed by DJ Cross a.k.a. SickDisco and founded in 2013.
Fox Trax Records is a small Moscow-based house and techno label with a string of really on-point releases from a range of local and overseas talents in recent months.
The label’s first release was ‘’Cremia’’ which was prompted by the sounds of Dubfound, a Moldovan artist. The release caught the public ears with its rusty, tribal and, at times, slightly ‘sinister’ melody, layered with one or two spooky vocal loops and few glitchy analogue trips. It’s not summery whatsoever, more akin to a dank Russian basement club, but it’s raw and a bit industrial with a driving bassline that really gets those limbs pumping.
The fact Cremia is a vinyl-only release, of which only 200 will be pressed, adds to the rather mysterious character of this track. It’s a bit wonky and dark, but very nice. Thumbs up.
Fox Trax, in fact, is the current publishing outlet for two artists, who operate on stage as Black Lenin & SickDisco. In more mundane situations, those same two DJs are known - respectively - as Anton Lymarev and Stanislav Kardonov. Lymarev is the more social and promotionally inclined of the two. He is not lacking in confidence, either. His social networking profile at Vkontakte is currently headed with some English sentences that appear on many online greetings cards.
