Resina: Traces - Remixes

Warsaw-based cellist Resina follows up last year's brilliant Traces album with a new EP featuring one of its standout tracks, 'Trigger', plus a set of remixes from four of her favourite artists: Ben Frost, Lotic, Abul Mogard and 130701 labelmate, Ian William Craig. Resina is the alias of classically-trained cellist Karolina Rec, a participant in Poland's vibrant independent music scene since the late '00s and co-founder / collaborator of some of its most influential alternative bands. She has steadily been making a name for herself through both her striking, emotionally-resonant recordings and her powerful live performances. Across its 30-minute duration, it opens out a broad and immersive spectrum - from visceral, live instrumental looping to deep, drone-based immersion and sharp, rhythmic deconstruction.

Across its 30-minute duration, it opens out a broad and immersive spectrum - from visceral, live instrumental looping to deep, drone-based immersion and sharp, rhythmic deconstruction. Traces - Remixes is a hugely impressive, diverse and high-quality set. Offering some insights to the cellist’s own sensibility and pointing back to last year’s Traces album, the EP also serves as a wonderful standalone release.
