Kontrax is the solo night time project from young Mexican blaster Cesar Franco. He grew up in the city of Monterrey in Mexico, an industrial and financial powerhouse in the northeastern state of Nuevo León. He started this project in 2010, with the idea of giving people an inside look into what makes him tick on a personal level in terms of his beliefs and convictions. He believes this is what gives any piece of music that special touch, feeling, experiencing and hearing what the artist “had to say” about a particular theme or concept… His music can be described as dark harmonic layers intermingling with only the most powerful of straight edged bass lines, interlaced with some huge psychedelic elements, guaranteed to propel you into the next universe.
His early exploits have left a discernable mark on the Mexican psychedelic scene, having released on and worked with many South American labels, including Subtrance Crew, Speedsound Records, Ataxia Corporation and Dementia Society Records.
We exist in a time where cultural and religious beliefs still play an important role in people’s daily lives, and in most cases, and even in this ultra-modern era, your personal belief system or values would most likely dictate the existence of a “higher power”… Now for some people that would be a reference to God, Allah, or any of the myriad of names and references to the creator. For others it can be a reference to a more esoteric form of belief or spirituality… Whatever your beliefs dictate, we can be sure of one thing – that in an infinite universe of possibility and by the sheer scale of how nature has sustained and connected life on this planet, that there is something much more than what the eye meets, a universal energy of love and intention that binds us all together in this life and the transition to whatever may lie ahead…
He now presents us with his brand new artist EP, featuring some massive twilight blasters that will most certainly set the night on fire!!!
