Twenty-nine year-old Trazmo is an up-an-coming French artist. Specializing in electronic genres, the producer has been making music for 10 years now. His latest offering is the Tropical House track, “Moving On”, out via the Music Revolution label. Trazmo is a horse of a different color when it comes to Tropical House music. The way he incorporates the vocals and lead synth in his pieces is absolutely brilliant. He combines the progressive melodies of Tropical House with a soulful sound that melds perfectly; creating a blend that is both soothing, and euphoric. Trazmo’s drum patterns are extremely good, and overall his music just sounds really well composed. With a strong rhythm and a catchy melody, the vocals are added in to give the late night summer vibe that you won’t hear on the main stage of a large outdoor festival, but rather in NYC night clubs or on the intimate sets at your local auditorium.
And that’s what sets Trazmo apart from his contemporaries and peers. His brand of Tropical House on “Moving On”, is a lot more snug and warm than the regular anthemic motifs doing the rounds. Usually, electronic dance always has a habit of throwing everything, including the kitchen sink, at the listener.
This happens with the volume turned up to 11 and an explosive electronic riff usually substituting for the refrain. But then you have exceptions such as “Moving On”. The track is a unique, smooth take on a genre usually filled with loud noises. “Moving On’s” marquee of catchy riffs, vibrant and spacious atmosphere and incredible vocal talent will be a crowd-pleaser.
Trazmo delivers a warm and relaxing experience that will have you feeling like you’re floating towards heaven. There’s never an array of different electronic melodies and effects flying around at once. There aren’t any loud drums or earth-shaking bass to be found.
There is only the attractive craftsmanship of Trazmo and his ability to create a soulful song out of the same verse-buildup-drop structure of the traditional EDM track. He accomplishes this electronic music production by regressing to a melody and its surrounding harmonizing chords.
“Moving On” succeeds in the form of well-crafted, calm and collected electronic music that keeps to the form of the traditional EDM song structure, while avoiding the precarious clichés. Throughout its length, the delivers a relaxing experience through a lush style of production that creates a space of elation and composure in the otherwise noisy world of electronic music. Another strength of “Moving On” obviously stems from the amazing female vocal talent featured on the track.
In many ways, Trazmo gives electronic music artists tasked with navigating the post-EDM landscape a roadmap of sorts. It gracefully pays respect to the influences at its foundation while simultaneously refusing to adhere to its restrictive boundaries, incorporating instrumentation and a style with such taste that the track sounds like the logical next step in the creative journey of a navigated creator.
Once again, whether it’s the delicate chords in the verses which intertwine with the rhythm, or the bouncy keyboard stabs underneath the smooth vocals in the chorus, Trazmo’s talents as an electronic producer shines here. Add this to vocals – which has the ability to be both soft and soulful – and you have a successful track which certainly sets the tone for future releases from the artist.
