Soko & Sev debut on Codex Recordings with ‘Escape From Earth’ EP
Soko & Sev
Soko & Sev, one of the most exciting undiscovered techno acts, lands with a debut contribution to Spartaque‘s esteemed Codex Recordings imprint, following up on their recent ‘Perception of Reality‘ EP on AnalyticTrail. The 2-track ‘Escape From Earth‘ EP, which champions similar cosmic sensibilities to their previous musical endeavors, is another masterclass in progressive techno, sure to receive staunch support from top-tier talent and audiences around the world — out now across all streaming platforms.
Soko & Sev lay a deeply immersive foundation with the title track, built on crisp percussive elements and ethereal soundscapes that completely encapsulate their unique sonic palette. The track has a hypnotic effect, with an ambiguous melting vocal riff and galactic melodies that become soothing as they are repeated. The richly mesmeric composition, true to its title and teetering between warehouse-primed and at-home-listening spaces, serves as a clear ‘escape from earth’ (or reality) for almost anyone who has the pleasure of listening. The EP’s next track, ‘In My World,’ is another masterfully textured production that employs a magnetic vocal phrase to convey its cosmic theme. The seamless interpolation of clean tailored percussion alongside free artistic expression gives it an ethereal authenticity. These sonic offerings are a welcomed and necessary addition to the genre’s progression because of the harmonious contrast of rebellious creativity woven within a raw techno format.
