It's with pleasure that Cascine welcomes Essáy to the family - a young producer from Heidelberg, Germany, making finely-textured and melodic mid-tempo house music.
The release is anchored by tracks 'Ocarina' and 'Lyla' to unfold in an expansive wash of glittering notes and looping synth patterns. Like the soundtrack to a midsummer road trip, Ocarina captures the emotions felt imagining a new life in the towns glimpsed from the highway.
Essáy is Simon Schilling. He is 23 years old.
