Copenhagen’s Patrick Alexander Bech-Madsen (a.k.a Sekuoia) sure is a tough one to find out about and not much easier to pigeon-hole, but by golly he makes good music! The first track featured is off his debut EP Trips, a really varied and accomplished release. Set among mostly chilled-out, xx-like tracks, Evenings is the most danceable of the bunch with chopped up vocals and dripping pads, a crackling, organic sound and a beat made up of a mixture of synths and beeps. At the other end of the scale is a remix of Sigur Ros’s Untitled #1, a slow builder that gives a nice twist to the original, especially once the beat comes in. Stream Trips in full on Sekuoia’s Soundcloud, as well as a few other remixes – they’re all well worth a listen.
