Bridging together impactful atmospheres and hard-hitting drops alongside an intriguing vocal line from none other than Ava Silver, STRX’s latest tune is certainly one you don’t want to miss. Marking the Dutch producer’s first release in 2022, “Shadows” is out now on all platforms courtesy of Frequency Music, and makes up for a great showcase of STRX’s genre-bending style. As the artist explains about the song’s creation:
“In the midst of the pandemic, I found myself feeling hopeless and somewhat depressed sometimes. The negative voices in my head naturally transferred onto the music script, even though I was trying to make uplifting club music. As a result of this crossover between energy & vulnerability, ‘Shadows’ was born. Due to the extent to which this feeling was relatable to Ava Silver, we managed to make a vocal that perfectly connected. All in all, we created a piece with a message that I hope people can relate to and get empowered by.”
STRX hails from the Netherlands and kicked off his career back in 2019 with his single “Forget You.” Gathering inspiration from his many travels during his early years, as well as his impressive ambition and desire to leave his footprint within electronic music, he boasts a distinct production style that is defined by intense, bass-heavy breaks, immersive ambiances, ethnic instruments, and high energy drops.
