Sekuoia, alias 22-year old Patrick Madsen, is one of the most acclaimed producers to come out of Scandinavia right now and has released two EP’s, most recently on hyped Berlin based ‘Project:Mooncircle’.
In December 2014, the Danish beatmaker, revealed his first track in almost a year- ‘Waves’. A song that builds layers of synthetic sounds and hazy vocals, which transforms into a hypnotically rhythmic track that ensnares the listener. ‘Waves’, is taken from the forthcoming EP release ‘Reset Heart’, available March 2 (2015) on ‘Sleep Bright’, distributed by local indie heroes.
Sekuoia combines the organic with the electronic in a dreamy meltdown and has been chosen to support acts like Inc, Active Child, Washed Out, MØ and WhoMadeWho, as well as remixing Tomas Barfod.
His sound consist of dry beats, synth washes and copy/pasted vocals conjure echoes of both dubstep and atmospheric ambient.
The Danish producer is creating delicate electronic music that effortlessly bridges ambient, hip hop and electronica. His painterly soundscapes are equal parts night club after midnight and stalactite cave at dawn.
The buzz in Scandinavia has been incredibly fast-growing since a highly acclaimed show at Roskilde Festival in 2013 and Spot Festival in 2014. Sekuoia has also shown his potentiale in the rest of the world, playing all the most important showcase festivals, to name a few: Eurosonic Noorderslag, Reeperbahn Festival, Trans Musicales, Amsterdam Dance Event and by:larm.
