Palms Trax is a producer and DJ based in Berlin, Germany. What began as an experiment in pad-driven Detroit workouts soon became Palms Trax calling card, the young producer building valve-heated, dust-treated slabs of house in his home studio, shot through with melodic synths and smooth, undulating drum patterns that recalls the likes of Legowelt, John Heckle, Tevo Howard, and Nu-Groove era Burrell Brothers.
In 2013 he inaugurated the Lobster Theremin label, the London-based imprint that quickly became one of the most talked about labels around. Jay Donaldson have since added to his run of quality efforts with two big releases on Dekmantel Records. When not travelling the world for prime-time gigs Donaldson holds a residency at the widely respected Berlin Community Radio.
Since his releases on Dekmantel, Jay has gone from strength to strength with stellar live sets at Glastonbury and Dekmantel festival as well as finishing number 1 in Mixmag's breakthrough DJ's of 2016.
