Jason Merle, Sen-Sei - Traduire

Classic left coast House sounds abound in 'Traduire', the new single from Sen–Sei and Jason Merle, issued on Colour and Pitch.

Swung House music vibes with a distinctly French flavour, 'Traduire' ('Translate' in English) opens with bouncy, crunchy drums and a simply irrepressible bass-line, before taking off into timeless chord and saxophone heaven. The 'French Filter Mix' straightens up the groove, transforming 'Traduire' into something deeper and moodier, perfect for late night sessions.

One of the pioneers of 'live' House music, Sen–Sei has been deeply embedded in the electronic scene since he was first exposed to the music at late 80's warehouse parties back in his native Brooklyn. Beyond his live performances, Sen–Sei's distinctive keys have been heard on some of the biggest records in house over the last two and a half decades.

With releases on Whiskey Pickle, Viva Recordings and Plastik People among many others under his belt, Jason Merle has recently returned to the world of DJing and music-making with extra passion and energy after an extended child-rearing sabbatical. Hailing from Fresno CA, Merle has been playing records since '97, cutting his production teeth in the Bay Area before moving back to Fresno where he continued his rise.

Releasing EP 'The Goods' together last year on Delve Deeper Recordings, Sen–Sei and Jason Merle connected some years ago on the San Francisco scene, and have been close friends ever since. We're excited to have them make their debut on Colour and Pitch with this charming slice of honest-to-goodness House music.
