Remember how smooth and yet intense it could be playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater and other extreme sports-games back in the late ’90s and early ’00s? But what’s cooler than skateboards and snowboards? Airboards, obviously.
This EP from Beax is simply a few parts of the soundtrack to an airboard-game that never actually existed. Old futurism meets modern nostalgia.
Futuristic, yet laid back beats and synths. Lots of electronic sounds, a bass guitar and some soothing pads, sure, why not. Smooth, but moving forwards.
Northern Norway. Small town. Computers. Intricate Dance Music.
Like many other musicians, Stig Fostervold goes by many names. Having grown from a side project that released an EP late in 2012, Beax has become a main project that contentiously creates something, be it remixes for noise hardcore-bands, EPs or tracks for the world to hear, or just something to fill up even more space on a computer. Staring into a screen quite a lot, Beax focuses heavily on warm and soft electronic sounds wrapped within intense, abstract and absurd beats and breaks.
