12" Vinyl Single Record
Have you ever felt like music sometimes imitates nature? That a song can invoke the same feelings and sensations as a day out in the forest surrounded by the sounds of life or an evening in listening to nature filtered through the windows? It's a strange sensation, almost dreamlike, weightless. It's that same sensation invoked by the delicate electronic music of 21-year-old Danish producer Sekuoia, music that effortlessly bridges ambient, hip hop and electronica.The 'Trips' EP was originally released in digital format by Danish label Fdselsdagsbarnets Pladeselskab in 2011, and UpMyAlley was so enamoured with the four tracks that it decided to remaster the EP, create new artwork and press it on vinyl - making it the first physical release for the young producer who, after time spent in Germany and Detroit, is now based in Copenhagen, Denmark. With previous releases on Project:Mooncircle, remixes for Tomas Barfod on Friends of Friends and Mieux on UpMyAlley as well as live support for WhoMadeWho, M, Veto and Active Child, Sekuoia is establishing himself as one to watch for 2014. The music on 'Trips' is a delicate balancing act between organic and synthetic sounds, woven together to create a gentle sonic tapestry the listener can rest on. Make time for it and discover a young artist full of ideas and promise.
