This is our story...

This delightfully strange single from Esseks comes to us from his brand hew experimental bass LP Broken Bones out today on Wakaan, who accurately describe their label sound as “Free Form Electronic Music.” On “Sticks” Esseks comes in playfully with bouncy synths and a seductive progression backed by an eerie electric guitar, but we soon find him opening bass portals to unknown parts of the universe that eventually let in what sounds like a distant choir of extra-terrestrials – hear for yourself in the premiere below.

“I wanted to create a softer, more melodic EP (Sticks) and a darker, heavier EP (Stones),” Esseks explains. “After finishing both, it just made sense to bring them together making one complete record that has range, depth and experiments with different styles and moods. I’m extremely proud of this LP and excited to integrate it into my live sets.” Take the wild, wonderfully weird trip on the whole collection if you’re looking for something to blast off on.
