“Bursting with character”
“The most anticipated track to come out of the wave movement”
YourEDM on ‘Children of Gaia’
Canadian wave producer Sorsari will be sharing his new track, “Monster” taken of his upcoming EP, ‘Patterns’, scheduled to be released October 30 via prominent wave label vibe.digital Recordings. Composed, mixed and produced by Sorsari himself and mastered by electronic musician Blake Bratcher aka Guilt Chip (Tynan, Tommie Sunshine, Wuki), the 8-track ‘Patterns’ EP also features a remix track by respected Wavemob musician Deadcrow. Sorsari has played a huge part in growing the identity of the emerging wave music genre and, last year, his endeavors earned him a coveted place in the formative Wavemob collective, as well as an official remix collaboration with Om Unit. Sorsari has already garnered support from tastemaker publications including Mixmag, Nest HQ, YourEDM and YouTube channel The Accidental Poet, as well as gained impressive airtime from Rinse FM (with legendary selector Plastician). Sorsari has also been working the festival circuit over the last three years, with successful appearances at Astral Harvest in 2016 and 2017, Odyssey Gathering 2018 and Borealis Festival 2018.
Hailing from Edmonton in Canada, Sorsari was born as Alex Jensen and grew up listening to the electronic music of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. He began his music career when a friend send him a copy of FL Studio and he immediately fell in love with making electronic music of his own. Even before Sorsari adopted his current moniker, he was immersed in the world of music. Initially exploring his own sound and creating a blend of dubstep, EDM and trap, Sorsari began to open for acts like Feed Me, Flux Pavilion, Downlink, Kozee, Gemini and Eskmo, to name a few, and collaborated with UK dance music group LMC. Also cutting his teeth on local festivals and Canadian events, it wasn’t long before Sorsari found his signature chilled-out wave sound and got the attention of music giants in the wave scene.
Citing names such as Om Unit, Jake Robertz, MRKRYL, MssingNo and Yung Gud as inspiration, Sorsari could best be compared to the attention to detail of wave producer Klimeks, the brooding production of Skit and the versatility of Kareful. ‘Patterns’ is certainly Sorsari’s most daring release to date.
Sorsari’s single ‘Monster’ immediately draws the listener in with a melody of carefully manipulated vocals and ethereal synth-sounds. As the track grows with every layer of bass and synth, Sorsari anchors the soundscape with the simple yet powerful vocal line “monster”, which shines hauntingly through the churning blend of crisp drums and reverb-soaked melodies. Sorsari commented on ‘Monster’: “It’s my take on a what a higher energy wave track means to me, the vocal called out for a bigger sound so I tried to approach it with a mentality that would suit a club or festival environment. It’s a nice hybrid between 808s and reese play for the sets.”
