Discovery: Scalatrax

Scalatrax is an Swiss experimental drummer who created his far-eastern inspired new track Budhas Rhythm from captured sounds from around his house.

By Graeme Smith

Budhas Rhythm combines the modern with the ancient. Experimental percussion teams up with traditional far-eastern instruments and, perhaps more weirdly, documentary voice overs. As far as I’m concerned, weird is wonderful when executed well and Scalatrax has executed Budhas Rhythm perfectly.

Scalatrax is a solo project from Swiss drummer and producer Florian Haas-Schneider. He’s a man who certainly knows the rules of good music and how to break them for maximum effect. Check out Budhas Rhythm below.
