Tripswitch’s onedotsixtwo label continues to build its catalogue of first class releases with the ‘Convergence EP’, courtesy of an outstanding 3-track collaborative project joining Mønje & Partenaire. Within the unique melting pot of world-class talent that is emerging from Argentina, Sebastián Sellarés (aka Mønje) and Axel Bray (aka Partenaire) are standout future stars shining brightly throughout their ‘Convergence EP’.
The EP title track radiates quality from start to finish, painting a beautiful, spellbinding, progressive musical portrait with a sophisticated layered structure, atmospheric chords and subtle motifs. Meanwhile, ‘Illuminaria’ soars with a delightful glistening vigour, cleverly blending percussive elements with ever-evolving layers of melodic mastery – an exotic creation that shows precisely why the current renaissance of proper progressive house music is such a joy to behold. For the EP’s climax, Mønje & Partenaire unleash ‘Opposed Auras’, a track that sees their hypnotic creativity in full-flow, where countless delicate touches combine to create a track of ever-evolving excellence – a perfect finale for this first class package.
This is Partenaire’s second outing on onedotsixtwo, having debuted with ‘Yesterdays’ – a beautiful melodic highlight on Tripswitch’s ‘In At The Deep End’ (ODST0001) compilation project that started the label’s journey joining of the dots across the thriving global scene with a boundary-blurring, proper progressive ethos. The Buenos Aires native DJ/Producer has been steadily building a stunning portfolio of releases on labels such as ICONYC, Clubsonica, Auditen, Modern Agenda, Soundteller and Stellar Fountain. Sebastián Sellarés (Mønje) was born in Córdoba in 1998, and started to get into music when he was very young. With a steady flow of releases on the likes of Massive Harmony, Light Side Music, BC2, PHW Elements, BCSA, Stellar Fountain and many more, he is (alongside Partenaire) one of Argentina’s finest emerging creative talents.
Although separated by a 10-year age difference and over 700 km (Cordoba to Buenos Aires), Sebastián and Axel (without ever being together in the same room) shared thoughts and ideas on a journey to find their distinctive combined sound. This remarkable EP for onedotsixtwo is the fruit of their unique convergence.
