Esseks Finally Unleashes Dark, Dystopian Thriller ‘The Villain’s Journey’ LP

||, |

NYC-based producer and illustrator, Esseks, has been slowly teasing pieces of his new album throughout the first half of 2021. From the psychedelic bass thriller, Watching From A Distance, to the spooky Boss Lair, the forward-thinking producer has been building momentum with everything he touches. Today, he’s finally unveiled his highly anticipated album, The Villain’s Journey, out now via Deadbeats.

An album inspired by storytelling and unconventional genres, the LP is a mythical story that follows a lionhearted voyager through a post-apocalyptic New York City. Each track on the album is a musical manifestation of the dystopian hellscapes and dark forces the voyager encounters along his journey. A proper thriller, The Villain’s Journey is stitched together with narcotic dubstep breaks, trap nuances, tricky hip-hop cadences, and a flurry of unconventional electronic subgenres.
