We’re proud to announce something of an all-star cast on this new release from long-standing Delusions duo Session Victim. Continuing to impress and build a seriously loyal and devoted fanbase around the world through their impeccable DJ sets, live show and release and remixes, 2018 has been another stellar year and 2019 looks set to be even stronger. Recent artists to receive the SV Midas touch include KiNK, Folamour and Nebraska and their recently launched vinyl-only label Pen & Paper has already caused a stir since its inception this year, and only three releases in.
On their latest EP, Session Victim bring us the fruits of some heady, late- night jam sessions in their Hamburg studio, calling on their neighbour Erobique for Rhodes duties on Dawn as well as close friends Iron Curtis and Nebraska who bring their own twist to the organic and dubby SV sound. Title track Dawn featuring Nebraska builds on a loose percussive house groove, layering up reversed guitar hits and string chords to form a dense and seductive mood to get lost in.
The Taste Of Life goes on a blunted, jazzy excursion where their beloved Juno 106 takes centre stage and live drums bring a mellow yet dynamic and driving groove.
Flipping over we have Hear The Sun which features Iron Curtis, fresh from his amazing Upstream Colour LP on Ripperton’s Tamed Musiq. The trade- mark Session Victim sound is augmented by Iron Curtis’ synth explorations and vocoder workout resulting in a deep, uplifting slice of Balearic bliss.
Rounding off the EP is a true master of all things deep and the perfect pro- ducer to bring a dubbed-out twist to Dawn - Sven Weisemann. His classic releases such as Emphazised and Slices demonstrate his ability to lure in the listener through long, extended arrangements and here on his remix of Dawn we see an artist who can skilfully create an incredible atmosphere through a stripped back, reductive approach to production.
