The world is in urgent need of women who can be role models for a better future – TriXstar is here to help. In times of crisis, with growing national tendencies, TriXstar presents a multicultural world, combining her Persian heritage with German education and Jamaican culture.
Her new EP “Dear 2020” is her reflection on the past year. The global situation has intensified feelings and problems for people around the world, and the same way for TriXstar. With “Dear 2020” she tries to express her very own experience. She doesn’t talk directly about the obvious topic, while still dealing with the effects.
2020 was a year full of highs and lows. It started with her first CD release “#TrixStylez” including her promo tour with ten shows in Jamaica, just to find her European tour canceled after her return. Still, she managed to make use of the time. With a remix competition, new music, and video material shot in Jamaica she kept the link to her fans. Nonetheless, the situation with limited options triggered a process of self-reflection on priorities in life, that are processed on this new EP.
The opener “Love” is a love song, dedicated to the universal love, the best friend, your sister, or your partner – the one person who lets you smile and make you stand up in the morning, the one you care about. “You”, the second song on the EP, is based on a true story she experienced in Kingston in early 2020, where she tried to help after a car accident and was confronted with the harsh reality of inequality and the lack of knowledge about first aid in Jamaica. In general, self-care and care for others are two topics you can find in all songs of the EP. “Own Way” and “Smile” are two songs reasoning about the way you go in your life. “It’s hard to find your own way, but all the steps on the way, even the so-called mistakes, are important to form the person that you are today. So, don’t let anyone tell you, what you have to do, you’re beautiful the way you are “. And even “Satisfy Me”, a song about breaking up a toxic relationship, is strongly about self-care, and about what’s good and what’s bad for you. Finally, “Wonders” is the closing song of the EP. It takes the listener on a journey through the wonders of life. “Make sure not to take anything for granted, but enjoy the wonderful things in life to the fullest.”
“Dear 2020” is a huge step for TriXstar and marks the beginning of a new era in her career. Both musically and lyrically it’s a grown-up release, with reflective and authentic songs, that are musically versatile. The instrumentals are strongly rooted in Jamaican music culture, yet still adding the extra spice with additional bridges, synths, and textures. The EP was produced in collaboration with Jon Moon and Yutman Records, with most instrumentals being played by musicians from The Evolution (the band of reggae superstar Gentleman). Definitely, a release not to miss, that will make a mark on the international reggae scene.
Boomrush Productions will release “Dear 2020” digitally on May 28th, 2021.
