New Music Worldwide is a weekly mix series hosted by Thris Tian.
This week’s New Music Worldwide comes from Relaxer.
Emerging from New York in 2016, Relaxer is the latest project from Daniel Martin-McCormick. Influenced by two decades of innovative US underground, McCormick uses contagious bassline grooves and psychologically charged atmospheres to form his unique sound.
With over five EPs released via the Relaxer alias and his hardware live set being performed at places such as Berghain, De School and many more, McCormick also runs the label Lovers Rock Recordings. He also has a collaborative project with Aurora Halal as Halal & Relaxer and co-directs the NYC based Sustain-Release festival.
For his NMW mix, Relaxer explores the ideas and influences from his latest tape “A Family Disease”, with a pick of hazy ambient and techno selections, all combined to form a lagoon of solace.
