NUDE067: Portax


‘Dark and punchy’ that is how you would describe this Portax’s music.

Portax is a French dark techno producer. This artist broadened and constructed his musical identity by frequenting raves and well-known techno clubs from the South of France. He soon expressed a taste for deep and dark sounds.

Portax decides to produce his sounds and promote his own musical identity. He signs with some underground techno labels like Perfekt Groove, Earporn, Infekted, Biotech to released few EPs and tracks. The deep sounds of these tracks cannot match the artist’s style better.

Mid 2020, he released his first 10 tracks album: PANIK on Space 92’s label. Few tracks from the album like ‘CORE’ or ‘YOU ARE THE POWER’ are well known now by the techno world and played by big names.

With a slew of hard-hitting releases clocked on the on the likes of Perfekt Groove, Infekted Records, Biotech Recordings, Krafted Underground and Beenoise Records over the course of his career, hotly-tipped French techno talent and Panik label boss, Portax, now returns to his burgeoning imprint for the first juggernaut release of 2021, with A Lucid Dream.

Out now via Panik, A Lucid Dream is everything we have come to expect and more from the French artist, who has been going from strength to strength with each passing release since he burst on to the scene back in 2019.

Speaking about the release Portax commented: “My mission on this production was to give to the public my own vision/sensation of a lucid dream; a mix between a nightmare and the perfect dream, where everything is possible”.

Today, he joins the NUDE Techno podcast, with an hour of Techno. Listen to it below on SoundCloud & Mixcloud. If you are feeling this series, then please consider supporting it on Mixcloud Select.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
