Brooklyn-based Esseks is a creator who goes beyond the realms of the norm with his art, pairing a fluid, experimental production style with a carefully curated vision unlike any other. Blending intricate sound design, unique samples and pulsing basslines is what Esseks is good at, as proved by his latest EP A HOLE IN THE FOURTH WALL.
A HOLE IN THE FOURTH WALL EP touches down upon a glitchy sonic landscape in delectable fashion; 7 meticulously crafted tracks that glide effortlessly between varying genres and moods. Delving deep in to the realm of Esseks’ creative genius, the EP highlights elements of glitch-hop, freeform bass and pure, unabashed experimentality as it builds atmosphere with every beat. This is one EP to appease the appetites of those who like their bass music deep, mysterious and distinctly off-centre.
Alongside his sonic creations, Esseks hand-paints all the artwork for his music. It’s this kind of all-round vision that Liquid Stranger’s label WAKAAN has been championing from the get-go. You won’t find any run-of-the-mill music producers here, which is why Esseks’ new EP has found its perfect home in WAKAAN.

One of the few albums that every track makes my hair stand on edge. Constant arousal of drums and heavy bass lines, while keeping a melodic atmosphere, puts this out there amongst the best bass albums to exist. Consummately written. Perfect. NarBonezz
