Snax Trax – Sarah Maria Elvira [R&S]
As well as featuring new releases, The Snax Trax blog profiles DJs, writers, musicians and internet nerds, who each choose three of their favourite tracks – one for breakfast, one for lunch and one for dinner.
Not content with being main girl in Holland at R&S Records, Sarah also pulls strings as a partnerships/PR manager at Pause. Having worked with, in and around music in one form or another for a number of years Sarah has developed a broad and extensive musical knowledge. It is a knowledge that has seen her try her hand at a number of roles shape shifting from DJ / producer to promoter and now label manager.
Honed through her A&R experience Sarah has an insatiable hunger to unearth, discover and develop new talent and, of course, find new records:
“I’m always open for new stuff, new music etc, and helping people out. I like working on the background, support new talent, that’s who we do it for. oh and records.”
In keeping with Dutch tradition, Sarah has an affection for deep / darker sounds (clearly audible in her selection below) citing her latest record purchase as Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient records. So as they say in Holland; “Eetsmakelijk ” (enjoy your meal!) Here’s Sarah Maria Elvira’s Snax Trax!
‘Fluxion – Motion 1 (Traces Album)’
‘Theo Parrish – Falling Up (Carl Craig Rework)’
‘Julien Neto – Voy (Le Fumeur De Ciel)’
After a good meal I often tend to get a little after-dinner dip, so I lay down on the couch to relax. Julien Neto’s melancholic but also quite sensual track Voy is something I really enjoy listening to at a time like this. I love subtle dark music, organic but clean sounding tracks with a deep deep bass. And with the right music, like Voy by Julien Neto, you’ll now slowly drift away from reality. Time to go to bed folks.
