Bass, Trap | STRX Shares Stunning Pop-Trap Single, “Shadows” Featuring Ava Silver 

Posted by on May 13, 2022

Marking his debut on acclaimed label Frequency Music, STRX has returned to the scene with what might be one of his heaviest releases to date, bringing together atmospheric verses and bass-driven drops on “Shadows.” Incorporating the vocal talents of Ava Silver, “Shadows” is a truly versatile tune that is bound to start lighting up dancefloors in no time, and become a staple in STRX’s energetic sets. 

“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,” said the producer. 

An accomplished musician and producer, STRX has been playing the drums for more than 10 years now. With a strong drive and ambition to find his own path within the music world, STRX oftentimes blends multiple genres into one song, while infusing his energetic sets with trap, dubstep and psytrance, aiming to tell a story to the audience.

The single has influences of future bass and chi trap, while subtly injecting them with a glitchy sound design and gritty textures for a stunning end result. Tune in above now and read a quote from Juuko on “undo” below!

“this song is about me finding some sort of serenity in the fact that i cannot undo my most painful mistakes, and that i need to find hapiness moving forward alongside it”
