Canadian wave producer Sorsari has just released his new EP, ‘Patterns’ 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.
On his new ‘Patterns’ EP, Sorsari comments: “I wasn’t really influenced by a lot for this EP but it was more of a gateway for me to start writing more wave music at 140 bpm. I really enjoy this tempo since it brings higher energy into a live environment like a club or festival and it was a nice change from writing a lot of slower tempo tunes (I’m still a big fan of writing slower emotional music). I’m typically inspired by life and consciousness and this EP was really just a compilation of the 140 bpm tracks that I felt really good about during the time-frame between making the tunes and getting the release lined up.”
