Mike Hennessy – Nothing Special EP [Elliptical Sun Recordings] Out Now!!
We here at Elliptical Sun Melodies are proud to present this year’s first release which comes from the incredible Slovenia based talent known as Mike Hennessy. Having already been an immense favorite of ours you can easily imagine how pleased we were when Mike delivered this fresh new 3 track EP titled Nothing Special, a title that gives us all a good laugh as it is very clear this EP is anything but that. Kicking this release off we have the EP titled track Nothing Special which is in every sense special and truly brings one of the most depth driven and emotional stories we have heard in Mike’s productions. Starting off with some padded kicks, sleek percussion and light snares the track picks up the pace with some added pad work and a low bass line addition. Building more heavily on the bass the track comes to its main break which is serenaded with some lovely piano stabs and heartwarming strings that are smoothly followed by the main lead. This tracks beauty and grace are absolutely breath taking and will surely warm the hearts of many who hear it. Following the title track we have Moonshine which is just as deep and savory as the previous. Bringing some slightly more pumped up kicks, the track is met by a low ominous bass line that blends with the minimal percussion and tight snare. After a short breaking point the track builds back up, immediately accompanied by a gorgeous string based lead that is partnered with an even stronger delivery of the tracks deep dark bass line. Adding on an extra layer of percussion and another main lead the track breaks down quickly as it begins to climb back up again to a satisfying final drop. This track packs an amazing amount of emotional drive and is an amazing addition to the overall sound of this release. To finish things off though we have the track titled Distance which is another gorgeous display of this man’s ability to go to the depths he does with his sound while also providing some emotional enlightenment through the gorgeous layers of atmosphere and deep low end bass lines. All in all we are incredibly pleased to be bringing you all this release and look forward to bringing you many more as this New Year rolls out in style.
