Tune into DHTV on September 26 for ‘Resonate’ Release Party—featuring Sharam, John Monkman, Township Rebellion, and Qrion https://www.twitch.tv/desertheartsrecords
In 2019, Rinzen co-produced the Beatport chart-topping ‘Torus’ alongside Marbs and Evan Casey to kick off the label’s launch. Now, he returns to the label with a brand new solo EP, ‘Resonate.’
‘Resonate’s’ namesake opener debuted at City Hearts Festival in 2019, becoming a sought after weapon in Marbs and Evan Casey’s set arsenal in the following months. The atmospheric, tech-fueled cut bursts with Moog riffs, dark melodies and haunting vocals that come together in a fluid embrace. “Gotham” is the heavier composition of the EP, more suited to peaktime thanks to its powerful kicks and roaring synth accents. Its minor arrangement maintains the shadowy overtone set forth in the track before it.
Montrealais bellwether Clarian also makes his Desert Hearts Black debut with a take on “Resonate.” He rebuilds the original from the ground up, distorting its vocal tones and using futuristic instrumentation for his rendition. Cavernous sound design creates a larger-than-life feel, despite it being set at the same tempo as its progenitor.
Since 2017, Rinzen has used the art of worldbuilding and progressive-tinged techno arrangement to capture the hearts and minds of crowds all over the globe. Having first made a name for himself on mau5trap, where he was chosen as direct support for deadmau5 in shows from New York to London, the burgeoning talent later carved his niche in the European arena with numerous releases on Parquet and Yoshitoshi, in addition to records on Chapter 24 and Steyoyoke. In 2019, he was named an “Emerging Artist To Watch” by Billboard Dance, cementing his spot among the elite of his generation, and additionally hosted a Point Blank Masterclass in the summer of this year.
Celebrate the release of ‘Resonate’ this Saturday, September 26, with Rinzen’s curatorial debut on Desert Hearts TV. Slated to join him are Yoshitoshi boss Sharam, Township Rebellion, Qrion, and John Monkman. Tune in here starting at 8pm PST.
