SARANTIS 'ELECTRIC CITY'

Support from Kode 9, Toddla T, Rusko, Starkey, Excision, Dov, RSD, Dubbel Dutch, Warlock, Chrissy Murderbot ++

Buy the CD from us directly HERE and get fully mastered instrumental versions of the vocal tracks and two additional bonus tracks not available anywhere else.

Electric City is the new album from Sarantis out May 27th via Senseless Records. It takes it’s name from an imagined urban landscape caught somewhere between London and the dystopian sprawl imagined by John Carpenter, Warriors and other classic 80s sci-fi. The music takes audible cues from the soundtracks to those films; bold, raw synths and big drums reverberate but also a melting pot of musical styles ranging from motor city techno and electro funk through to cutting edge grime, bashment and footwork.

Vocal tracks come from Parly B (Mungo’s Hifi), South London’s rising grime star M.I.K. & Dialect, a renowned freestyle MC and regular guest on Westwood and 1Xtra.

Building on previous releases for Senseless, Black Acre and Chrissy Murderbot’s Loose Squares, on this LP Sarantis expands his sonic palette and allows all the inspiration and influence collected in the past half decade to breathe and expand. Starting out from his soundsystem roots in Leeds, UK, Sarantis has worked his way in to the record boxes of people like Skream, Brenmar, DMZ & Mary Anne Hobbs with a catalogue spanning six years and work with vocalists like Warrior Queen and Iration Steppas.

2011 marks five years of Senseless Records, five years since the soundsystem culture of Leeds, UK inspired us to press the first Sarantis white label grime EP. In that time we’ve searched the UK and far beyond for international heat reaching out from Warsaw to Caracas. We’ve released almost twenty EPs and two albums of technicolour bass music from an extended family of artists including vocalists like Max Romeo, Warrior Queen, Badness, Foreign Beggars and YT and producers like Jack Sparrow, Starkey, Ghosttown, Phantom, Kanji Kinetic, Brackles, MRK1, Pocz & Pacheko and many more.

Pandemonium circus is a shadowy group of performers featured in time out who have been working on the underground for a number of years under various names and guises, with acclaimed groups such as the Invisible Circus, the Mutoid Waste company, Prangsta, Guerilla Zoo, and the Boomtown Fair.

SARANTIS 'GREENHOUSE EP'

 

SENSELESSDD005: Sarantis ‘Greenhouse EP’ by Senseless Records

“Dope!” – Brenmar
“Phenomenal! Going to be playing a lot” – Chrissy Murderbot

Support from: Phantom, Numan, Cardopusher, Warlock, Kanji Kinetic, Octapush, Pirate Soundsystem+++

A string of classic grime tracks from Sarantis originally launched the label so it’s fitting that the original Senseless artist returns to help celebrate our 5th birthday. The Greenhouse EP takes the signature Sarantis blend of raw grime and basement and hotwires it to a 160bpm juke tempo to create a fresh hybrid that could only come from one artist.

‘Militant’ jacks up grime strings and a wall of bass alongside the firing bashment delivery of rising star Parly B with a prophetic message given the recent social unrest. Title track Greenhouse FX samples horns hip hop style before splicing them in to a million pieces and reassembling them on tough percussion and elastic synths. More Dead Than Alive is straight grime with menacing, cinematic strings. Distorted Reality references sci-fi, 8-bit and classic Detroit to cook up one of the EP highlights. Scanner Riddim completes the package, an instrumental of militant crying out to be re-voiced by any MCs that can handle it.
