Blaxter is the musical project of a Melbourne based DJ and producer, who has pioneered an electronic composition style transcending any definition based on adjectival discourse by simply naming the sounds. Whilst loathe to use words like Squelch or any other hipster terms, any attempt to classify musical movements within the shifting sands of genre diversification is pretentious. As one genre dies another rises to replace the overused words to elicit hype within elitist collectives of the priviliged participants. The glitchy synth squeeks will not be Squelched.. Nor will they resonate with the trees after the dread locked campers have gone home to their middle class houses.
