Sensek – Mount Meru EP [Norse Projekt]
Norse Projekt presents yet another amazing 12”, this time the protagonist being Sensek, an inventive producer and DJ coming from Greece. Titled “Mount Meru EP”, the wax features three original tracks and a remix signed by local artist Incolor. The release is designed with an alluring minimalistic vibe infused with deep tech patterns and stands as an argument for the label’s unique sound. Established by Muninn in 2015, the label is known to deliver hot rhythms, with artists like Giash, Anton Pau, Pascal Benjamin, Venda, Rich NxT, VincentIulian and Dubtil contributing to the catalogue with incredible tracks.
Influenced by the underground culture of his city, Sensek started experimenting with electronic dance music a long time ago, playing sounds without limits. Incorporating various styles and subgenres of techno into his carefully crafted selections he managed to surprise every time, although he’s a mysterious character. Last year when he visited Bucharest, the adventure ended with the release of “Linear Momentum EP” with Complatt, which includes a remix by Cosmjn. Focused on production ever since, it was natural for him to follow up with fresh works. For this one, he teams up with Anastasiei Claudiu Andrei aka Incolor, known for his releases with Capodopere, Pleasure Zone Limited, Senzorial, Palavre Records and Hibit Records.
Sensek manages to capture a distinct minimalistic sound in his music, designed with deep, strong basslines and hypnotic soundscapes. On Side A, “Haumea” unfolds as a driving rhythm spiced with whispering voices and spacious textures while “Dama” flows deeply into uncharted territories of minimal techno. The water drops reverberate with energy while the long pads vibrate like a choir over the fuzzy percussion. The vibe is transferred to Side B as well, with “Geover” delivering a ghostly frequency sweeper and a delightful wobbling bassline. Closing, there’s Incolor‘s playful remix, adding a groovy balance to the wax. A smooth EP that brings forward an intriguing approach to producing electronic dance music.
