Visceral Producer, Artist Esseks Drops Single Ahead of Upcoming EP, The Uncertain Future
Esseks reigns as one of the most unique electronic artists in today’s bass scene – adding intrigue with his unique ability to paint and convey emotion through art. For his latest act, the producer channeled his experience of the pandemic in an upcoming EP via new art and single, “The Uncertain Future.”
The track serves as the title track of his forthcoming EP (out this Spring), and was written over the course of the last two years. The track finds the producer reflecting on his isolation and anxiety that was brought on by the uncertainty of the pandemic.
The artwork is the first in a tarot card-style series that will depict Esseks’ Uncertain Future. An eery guard figure, cast in light red pastel colored armor, halts the viewer. The delicately flushed illustration is starkly outlined in an eerie detail that parallels the producer’s music, which garners attention via intricate sound design contrasted by invigorating dubstep sensibilities. The single itself follows suit by providing a thematic intro and build, before evolving into a high-intensity banger.
“These songs were written during a time in my life where a lot was changing and it was causing me a lot of stress and anxiety“, said Esseks. “I chose to make my own kind of tarot cards for the art because to me they represent the anxious need to try and predict or control the future.”
