Delving into darker more techy realms, the unstoppable Hot Creations imprint welcomes M-nus favourite Heartthrob with ‘Odyssey’ – two original cuts straddling the boundaries of house and techno, filled with glacial atmosphere, moody melodics and serious dance floor drive.
Steaming in with a powerful pumping bass and dense, mischievous chords, title track ‘Odyssey’ is a tech-house dream of the highest stature. Metallic drips echo in the deep waters, while pacey percussions soon creep into the mix, rolling a tight and trippy rhythm. Spacey electronic keys swell and rise through the top tiers creating a cosmically charged hypnotic wave, which is destined to swarm your senses.
Moving into darker territory, ‘The Liar’ sets off with heavy-duty bass, subtle claps, shakes and deep, moody keys. Tense breakdowns escalate into sinister, dramatic synths, while the dark vocal haunts create an alluring energy, both seductive and disturbing. Progressing into sensational synth patterns, the track has a compelling energy, without losing its dark and moody edge.
Originally from Michigan, U.S.A, Jesse Siminski aka Heartthrob was exposed at an early age to the fresh and exciting sounds that were coming out of Detroit, Chicago and New York. Inspired by the Midwest rave scene and by artists such as Richie Hawtin, Jesse began to produce his own music and through his productions began to explore the intersection where tradition and innovation cross as much as aesthetics and concepts; where the ideal is function and entertainment as well as experimentation and emotion. Jesse soon became an integral member of the M-nus family and still resides in Berlin where he continues to explore his passion for music. Venturing from his M-nus home ground for this special release, Jesse makes a fresh and distinctive leap with this new project for Hot Creations. Thrilled to have the M-nus legend on-board, the label continues its musical evolution.
