Mitchell Claxton from Canada is making his debut on Claudia Cazacu’s Couture label with an EP called “Phobia”. Since his first release “Shadows EP” he has upped his game and who knows – this might be the next tech trance star in the making.
01. Mitchell Claxton- Ouranophobia
02. Mitchell Claxton & Matthew Antolin- Keraunophobia
First phobia is Ouranophobia which is a faster paced tech trancer sitting comfortably at 140 bpm. It kicks things off with a heavy bassline from bar one and keeps pushing the energy with teched-up synth lines and underlying acidic touches.
Second phobia would be Keraunophobia and a collaboration with Matthew Antolin. It’s a fast-paced techy affair with hard hitting percussion, heavy beats and a brief but spot on orchestral themed break.
Another round of dark and techy beats from Couture!
