Esseks cut his teeth in the dance music space circa 2015 with his explosive debut album Bad Cartoons. It wasn’t long after his breakthrough that the industry embraced his forward-thinking, cutting-edge production styles. A mutli-faceted creator, Esseks also draws and paints the art for his releases himself. Despite the odds, 2020 was a successful year for Esseks as he released a string of celebrated singles, his 2-track EP Soul Stone with Shanghai Doom, and delivered a track for Bassrush’s compilation album The Prophecy Vol 1.
Maintaining a full speed momentum, Esseks has already made 2021 his own. At the heels of his single “Ellie’s Nap” which was released on CloZee’s self-curated album Emergence, Esseks is mapping the blueprint for his next album The Villain's Journey. Inspired by prog rock and other unconventional genres, the LP’s lead single “Watching From a Distance” is a dark, stormy track with hip-hop nuances and warped psychedelic breakdowns. A proper thriller, this lead single is expected to send a shotgun blast into 2021. Watch this space.
