- Braxton


Since his debut on Anjunadeep with ‘When the Sun Goes Down’ in 2019, Braxton has established himself as a label favourite, with remixes for the likes of RUFUS DU SOL, Tourist and GRADES have previously won the support from BBC radio royalty. His latest single ‘Chiaroscuro’ brings back breakbeat with a 90s inspired sound perfect for clubs and headphones moments alike.‘Torn’, the chilled B-side, sees vocals of Brighton newcomer Danni Wells tell a tale of heartache, whilst subtle cello lines meet soulful chord progressions to create a dreamy warm-weather hit. Speaking on the double A-side, Braxton explains “‘Chiaroscuro’ is about contrast. That’s the theme in a lot of my music, melodically and sonically, I try to find a balance between darkness and light. ‘Chiaroscuro’ means the contrast between light and shadow – and the track was inspired by a world that exists between two opposing states. ‘Torn’ is a pure, moody progressive house record. I was in a darker place when I wrote it, which the tone of Danni’s voice really suits – it’s a good track to get lost in.”
