Description

Galapagos4 presents ‘Starcrossed’, a stunning instrumental album by Batsauce. Born Britt Traynham in Jacksonville FL, Batsauce’s resume includes production work for artists such as The Abs, Mr. Lif, Vinne Paz, Dillon, Qwazaar, Akrobatik, Patrick Evan, Bahamadia and George Clinton. He has produced hundreds of tracks over his 12-year career, and has built a reputation as one of the world’s adept and adaptable beat-makers.

Batsauce may be best-known for his work as one-third of The Smile Rays, which includes his wife Lady Daisey and Paten Locke, both of whom have joined him for extensive bookings across Europe and the United States in recent years.

‘Starcrossed’ takes to the Shakespearean notion of forbidden love epitomized for all time in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and gives it a futuristic-or shall we say contemporary-twist. It tells the story of an alien who falls in love with a woman on Earth, which often leads to trouble, even for other Earthlings. Batsauce draws on a wide range of cultural influences, but brings them all into harmony for the kind of progressive beats that he and his circles have dealt infor ages, but which have lately returned front-and-center to industry dominance.

‘Starcrossed’ follows up on Batsauce’s acclaimed collaborations with the MC Qwazaar (Typical Cats) on the ‘Style Be the King’ EP and the later ‘Bat Meets Blaine’ LP, both released on Galapagos4 in 2011. It deviates somewhat from a tradition established by ‘Gypsy Diaries’ (2008) and ‘Spy Vs. Spy’ (2009), both of which were inspired by his travels. ‘Starcrossed’ is a more hard-edged, sample-driven affair with heavy bass and propulsive rhythms which adds to Batsauce’s legacy as one of the greatest instrumental artists of this era.
