Traumer kickstarts a new edit series with one of his most sought-after pieces.
The French workhorse is known for his bottomless pit of edits, bootlegs and secret mixes heard frequently throughout his sets. After over two years of teasing this heavily requested ID from his 2019 Mixmag Lab, the sweet sounds of Leonidas’ ‘Taff’ finally get an official release on his label Gettraum.
Fresh off the launch of his latest Jinger alias, a full-length album for Berg Audio, as well as four releases this year as Traumer; the minimalist is showing no signs of slowing down his relentless studio habits.
Back in 2017, the Frenchman left the minimal world gasping for more after the leaking of his edit of Floating Points. The slick reshape of Sparkling Controversy was heard in Praslesh’s Dommune, and heavily in many of the Romanian’s sets.
After frequent requests across social media, the saught after edit eventually gained a release via Trommel, alongside a trio of edits including work from Einzelkind & Villalobos, and Bjork’s ‘Undo’.
The creative mastermind behind each of these in-demand cuts continues to deliver with his stunning rework Leonidas’ ‘Taff’. Pumping a fiesty bassline into the mix, energies lift through the roof as his signature, slinky percussion grows around a delightful guitar solo from the original.
Traumer’s unique approach to both edits and music production blurs the lines between live, acoustic music, and the world of electronics. A punchy kick and clap slap dart between neat bass notes swimming with subtle details and textures, wrapping around the guitar part like a glove.
Leonidas – Taff (Traumer Edit) is coming soon to both vinyl and digital formats. Stay tuned for announcements on the label’s Facebook.
