Boxwork – ‘Trench’

‘Trench’ is the second release from Boxwork, and released on his Boxwork Music label. It’s a cacophony of experimental and Eastern sounds somehow consolidating with radio broadcasts. It’s at once an aural assault as well as a pleasure to listen to.

‘Trench’ is in equal measures jazz fusion, funk, soul, electro pop, and dance. There are a multitude of tempos, odd samplings (such as the afore-mentioned radio braodcasts), and very experimental electronica. The listener is thrust down a rabbit hole of musical directions which somehow work together well.

‘Trench’ is Boxwork’s second release on his eponymous label, following on from ‘Heading North’, which was released last month, the soundtrack to a film of the same name. ‘Trench’ is set for release later this summer, and will be available as a limited-edition vinyl package, including an artwork print by Craig Johnson II. It will aslo be available to stream and download.

You can find ou more about Boxwork online on his official website, Twitter, Facebook, Soundcloud, and Instagram. Listen to Boxwork on Spotify and Bandcamp.
