Sebastian Sellares – Jormungander [MNL]

Paul Hazendonk’s MNL imprint welcomes Sebastian Sellares to the label with ‘Jormungander’. Also known under his previous moniker Monje, Sebastian hails from one of Argentina’s most talent rich regions in Cordoba. Since adopting his given name for his musical endeavours, Sebastian has landed releases on AMITABHA, Or Two Strangers and Proton Music. Now debuting on MNL, the Argentine presents a new two track artist EP.

Beginning with the title and showcase piece ‘Jormungander’ Sebastian crafts a smooth, musically rich piece that’s destined for many amazing dance floor moments. Anchored by a chugging progressive groove, it’s rhythmic core comes up quickly with layers of drums, metallic hits and vibrant tonal themes. Charming overlays add to it’s meditative quality, perfectly setting up a narrative of plucky motifs which carry a soulful resonance through the heart of the journey.

The companion piece ‘Vanaheim’ follows a similar sonic ethos and sits as a perfect complement to it’s predecessor. A chugging low end sets the track in motion as hazy harmonic concepts flow through the framework. Redolent in nature, rising textures and rhythmic structures tantalize the senses before leading into a deeply moving break. It rounds out two sensational tracks from Sebastian, who continues to be one of Argentina’s rising progressive house artists. Highly recommended.
