Baltra’s work breeds other worldly sounds, creating something hugely evocative and unique through both his DJing and productions. The NYC-based producer has been known to allow “his inner-self to speak through his sound”, creating a delicate, highly emotive brand of lo-fi haziness that sets himself apart in the bustling scene.
Rightly so, his glimmering work is getting the attention it deserves. The dreamy video for his single “Fade Away” has surpassed the 1.4 million view count on YouTube, with a highly-anticipated digital premiere on the horizon. In addition, his self-released cassette tape ‘No Regrets’ has been supported by the likes of Matt Werth of RVNG Intl., and saw a whitewash in sales through Baltra’s Bandcamp.
The future shines bright for Baltra, having just finalised his vinyl-only EP ‘Sophia’ on Catz N Dogz’ STEP Recordings, set to be gracing the shelves October 28th, before a vinyl re-release of ‘No Regrets’ in early 2017 – this time through Lobster Theremin affiliate Of Paradise.
Over the past year, the emerging producer Michael Baltra, has accelerated himself to the forefront of the scene representing the raw edginess of NYC in the mix with house beats. Artist’s distinct musical motif is rough and edgy, but complimented by a beautifully melancholic essence aimed directly at the heart.
