This platform is run by Ashes57. I created it to share music from the musicians I respect and have met on my travels.
In a world which is becoming more and more self-oriented, I believe that music has no borders and is for everyone. All 57TRAX and the mixes on this site are downloadable for free.
We concentrate on music at 160BPM, mainly footwork but with influences from many other styles. My love for this particular music started when I met DJ RASHAD and I joined TEKLIFE.
Sharing music all started for me with swapping mixtapes – my friends would record tapes for me to listen on the bus with their rarest beats and exclusive tracks that we couldn't buy anywhere. They gave me access to underground music which was rarely documented. When the internet made it possible to send music around the world at the touch of a button, I started to share tracks and mixes of the musicians I respect the most. Traveling around the world gave me the opportunity to open up my musical horizons and to meet many talented musicians who wanted to share their music with me. Towards the end of 2015, I started a monthly radio show on RADAR RADIO called the 160 SHOW. It is fun to finally have a place on the airwaves.
Music is the spark of life and my inspiration for my visual art.
If you feel like sending me a demos, stickers, a mix. Please email us!
