about

Fraxinus emerges from temporary suspension with a monolithic 6-track offering on his new self-release label Powerplant. This is his debut EP Position [Displacement], carved from a solid block of Devonian granite.

After a 4-year dormancy, the Amsterdam-based artist returns with a 30 minute transmission of earth-shaking kick drums, thunderous percussion and razor-sharp sound design. The label’s inaugural release simultaneously marks the first proper outing for the artist, following a run of compilation features & special edition vinyl excursions dating back to 2014.

Position [Displacement] is a journey of divergent moods & cadences, from the wistful flutes of opener 'Overland' to final track 'Laced'’s uncompromising arpeggios. Billowing melodies & piercing stabs run in tandem with a pummelling & steppy rhythm section; 'Source Code' builds steadily, paving the way for 'Pass One'’s warehouse-ready assault. The blooming, fluorescent synths of '115 (Kondo)' — named for the mythical Amsterdam club — create a mid-way moment of euphoria, before 'Larch' marches on with its clattering drums.

The tracks clearly contain DNA from Fraxinus’ foundations with the Her Records cohort — lean, direct & forward-thinking. This time around the aesthetic is more focused, transferred to techno schematics but veering away from 4x4 fare. The sonics have been compacted into dense slabs of energy, primed for soundsystem dispatch.

Wholly original, crafted with precision; Position [Displacement] serves as a powerful statement of intent for both artist & label.
