Motrade: Together We Grow

SEEN loves Motrade’s hypnotic electronic groove and suggests you check out the new single.

Swiss Electronic duo, Motrade are set to release their debut EP on Subsonic Foundation Records on the 9th of December 2016.
The ‘Together We Grow’ EP was recorded over the last eighteen months in their own studio in Lugano, using a mix of Analog and Digital equipment to get the best result out of both worlds. They tweaked and experimented for hours with sound waves, using traditional and alternative production techniques.

Featuring three brand new tracks including the single, ‘Together We Grow’, the EP will be released as a special limited edition CD and will be available to download at all the major outlets. The new tracks will provide the first indication of what to expect from their forthcoming debut album, which is set for release early next year.

EP Track listing:
01. ‘Dreaming of you’
02. ‘Together we grow’
03. ‘Touching paradise’

Originally from Switzerland, the Motrade duo of Anja (Vocals / Bass) and Kevin (Synths / Drums / Sampler / Keys) moved to Amsterdam so the latter could complete a Bachelor of Arts in Audio Production. Inspired by the thriving underground music scene there, they began writing together in 2010 and are constantly developing their very own musical style. They have released a series of low-key singles over the last few years and recently contributed a track under their Techno Alias, MTRD to a recent compilation on Planet Rhythm Records.

Citing the likes of Apparat, Howling, Bob Moses, David August, Ellen Allien, and Burial as musical influences, the EP sees the duo dip into Deep Electronic, Techno, UK Bass, Garage and House to produce a stunning set of songs that mix pop vocals with melancholy dark sounds to great effect. To coincide with the forthcoming EP and album release, Motrade will be announcing DJ and live dates in the very near future.
