Kerogen - pronunciation [ker-uh-juhn]
Taken from his self-titled debut album on Lewis Recordings, rising producer and Dazed & Confused approved artist Kerogen releases his most emotional track to date.
Inspired by the mysterious complexities of love, ‘Voice’ begins in a characteristic way that has now become the young producers trademark. Gradual builds of atmospheric claps and piecing down tempo beats play are joined by rising sirens before climaxing with a soul-hunting sample that induces uncontrollable goose bumps.
A piece of music made after a short hiatus in Turin, Italy, ‘Voice’ is both breath taking and mesmerizing in its simplicity, taking your mind on a wonder from start to finish. In Kerogen’s own words ‘It’s a track that is mainly about believing, that regardless of what happens to you, you can overcome it.”
The Hastings native now residing in South London is an architect of surreal landscapes gaining him comparisons to some of the best with Time Out branding him ‘like a Burial for people who require a little more information’ and DJ calling his sound ‘Music with a definite intelligent edge’
Electronica, trip hop and post-dubstep all seemingly rolled into one, it’s his passion for such genres that make Kerogen’s electronic music worthy of comparisons to other peers like James Blake, Jamie Woon, Burial and Joy Orbison, placing him as one of the most exciting artists to look out for in 2011.
