06 Nov From a spontaneous night in Geelong to a growing ensemble of musicians – An interview with Eastern Seaboard Electric Soul Ensemble


It feels contrived to label music, sometimes. After discovering the range of musical influences inspiring ESESE (Eastern Seaboard Electric Soul Ensemble) to create their unique sound, I felt inspired and refreshed. Chatting to the humble musicians Matt and Henok left me feeling their glow. It was such pleasure sitting down with the two and discussing their musical odysseys, creative processes and what inspires them.

ESESE have created their own sound. So it was no surprise to discover the vast array of music with which they have been surrounded throughout their lives. Having dissimilar upbringings with music, the pair use their diverse and wide palette of music taste to bring new flavours and create their own unique fusion of sounds and genres.

Matt went from Michael Jackson to early 2000s, metal to British psychedelia and swing – which he recognises is from where his love for brass stems. Henok’s music timeline started with his family introducing him to albums like Encore by Eminem and Public Enemy. 

When Henok started skating in grade five he naturally got into punk: “Cheesy punk like Avril Lavigne, Green Day and Blink 182. But I liked Sex Pistols as well. But then I got into house – terrible house. Then just back to hip-hop. I found internet rap. Wiz khalifa’s mixtape made me start looking for music online instead of the radio and that just changed everything. I like jazz too but to be honest as of late I haven’t been listening to music at all, I’ve just been listening to podcasts. I have little pockets — the last great records I listened to were J.I.D’s Never Story and Saba‘s Bucket List.”

Music hunting can be overwhelming with so much content out there. Matt always goes back to Dorothy Ashby as a source of inspiration.

Matt: “She is a 1960s harpist who delved into jazz and afro-beat territories. There’s this one record called Afro-harping and I keep going back to it. The other sort of beat stuff I’ve been listening to is South African house; afro-house in general, there’s a lot of auxiliary percussion – it’s cool to DJ.”

ESESE have just released two new singles, “Slow Down” and “Home“. The pair have been sitting on the original structures for about a year and a half until they collaboratively approached them as songs.

Matt: “The original structures of the song started with me jamming on a Saturday night as an alternative to going out and getting wasted. It was our Saturday night protest to going out and it turned into being, you know, lively, which was pretty fun.”

“Slow Down” went from horns and instrumental structures to a funky up-beat jam about not taking requests as a DJ – something each member, among most DJs, have to deal with on at least a weekly basis. With their long time collaborator and long time jammer” (as Henok fondly describes) Cazeaux O.S.L.O bringing his unreserved verse to the track effortlessly.

Matt: “Having him involved was a blessing, really. He comes with so much knowledge. A lot of us have to DJ to make money and there is that element of getting accosted by a bunch of drunk people on Friday or Saturday nights. Whether it’s a grand final or hens night, they can be quite rude and demanding. He (O.S.L.O) actually put this thing up on Facebook saying this [track] is about the ‘what’s this?’ philosophy as opposed to the ‘play this.’ He put it eloquently.”

Certainly a philosophy Matt and Henok share, as the pair became friends through DJing. When asked about the conception of ESESE, it was refreshing to see their anecdotes jog each other’s memories further. As they reminisced, Henok realised that the birth of ESESE was in the very building in which we were chatting (The Toff).

Henok: “So my housemate at the time, he DJed at a club called Home-house, which was a super-club in Geelong. I finished DJing in the city and we picked up my housemate and we just thought ‘let’s see if matt wants to come’ – this is about within a month of knowing him. I’d been DJing with him every week. I was like ‘it’s just an hour drive!'”

Even though it was 1am, the hour drive lead them to discover each other’s musical interests and talents. Matt, later into the night/morning, discovered that Henok made music and Henok introduced Matt to new sub-genres of hip-hop of which he had never heard. Playing Chance the Rapper‘s Acid Rap to Matt in the car was perhaps the catalyst to ESESE – the soulful, big band fusion of genres greatly inspiring them.

Henok: “And then that coming Monday we started meeting at his house every few days and making music. We made three demos over the next few months.”

This took place in 2013, but they look back on this night as though it happened a generation ago — which makes sense considering how much ESESE has grown since then. Each memory they shared continued to unlock further memories, anecdotes and nostalgic laughs that spoke the depth of their friendship.

Individually, Henok has been making music for around six years and Matt, eighteen years. While Henok has always been making hip-hop, when Matt first started he was making — as Henok jokingly describes — “long hair music.”

Matt: “I started with garage-punk, sort of, then got into pop-punk… which naturally went to screamo and hardcore, then to really heavy shit. I started changing up style when I was about eighteen and got into blues and soul. I joined a few bands when I moved to Melbourne. I used to play at this place called The Underground (in Adelaide). There wasn’t much dancing — it was more about spinning the guitar around your neck than anything else.”

I ask them to describe their genre as though they were explaining ESESE  to someone who exclusively listens to “long hair music,” to quote Henok. They go through a vast array of descriptions such as “retro futuristo.” Matt paraphrases one of his loved records from the nineties and Henok lists a range of genres, concluding with “hip-hop jazz soul brass.” They finally lock in “big band hip-hop” as their genre. The eclectic sound has evolved from a friendship to a growing project which sometimes involves the whole twelve piece band.

Henok: “It started as us two and then more joined to fill the gaps in the music. We haven’t fully written altogether in one room yet. We jam and make many songs that we’ve never recorded, so that’s next – fully writing with everybody.”

ESESE will celebrate their release with the full twelve piece band next weekend, November 11 at the Evelyn. Despite the logistical difficulty in bringing the full band together, they’re excited for what’s in store. With a year of weekly jamming practice at the ‘Now Here This’ night at The Toff, we can expect plenty of live improvisation, some crowd interaction and maybe some acts like Baro getting on the mic.

Henok: “We’ve got a trumpet, trombone, two sax players, keys, bass, guitar, drums and vocalists.”

The future for ESESE is full of colour and passion. The raw love for music and genuine energies of both Matt and Henok left me in good spirits. I am so excited for their future. ESESE are currently working on an upcoming album as well as a number of other separate projects. Henok is working on his own production and making beats for a rapper named Piatao. Matt is also working with another artist named Nynno.

In my opinion, ESESE is a realm of sound. While the E on the end of their name stands for ‘Ensemble’ on paper, the E is also open to evolution.

Matt: “Future is anything really. Bring on the Empire. Explosion. Enything.”


Catch ESESE playing with thandoAgung Mango and Lori (DJ set) at the Evelyn on November 11th to celebrate the launch of their latest releases. Grab your tickets here.

03 May What it was like winning triple j Unearthed’s Laneway competition for one of Melbourne’s largest bands, ESESE

 

While covering St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival we had an opportunity to chat to ESESE, the band who recently won the triple j Unearthed competition to play the Melbourne leg of the tour. Talking to the 11-piece band gave an insight into the experience of winning such a prestigious competition, and what having access to such an amazing platform means to an act still making a name for themselves in the crowded Melbourne scene.

The competition grants the winner a chance to play the opening set of the festival. While traditionally this is one of quieter moments in the day, the band felt positive about the reception they received, saying that “People coming in are already in a good vibe. Then we’re the first chance they have to dance, so it worked out well”. But getting 11 band members – all coming from different places – onstage at once proved to be a task. “A couple of us only got to the stage 50 seconds before we started” they joke. When asked if such a large group is an ongoing struggle, they reply “Yeah, sometimes the only times we play together will be at a gig. We normally just have to work it out through modular rehearsals – like three, six, eight people at a time”. Amazingly they then reveal that this is the first time the current line up have all played together at all, compounding the pressure and stress in the leadup to an extremely important set.

 

 

The musical sections and talents within the group are as varied as their backgrounds. A brass section shares the stage with a more traditional rock outfit, as well as a number of vocalists and rappers. About half of the members have been playing together for two years, while others have been more recent additions. “It’s really grown since we got rid of all of our backing tracks and brought in live bass drums and guitar on every song”, they explain. “But we still focus on a big electronic element, with all of our samplers live too – it’s a lot”. Is making their sets an entirely live (and large) experience driven by a want to be able to recreate the rich layers of samples they’d be been working with? “Yeah, that’s pretty much it… and more free Laneway tickets!” they joked. “With all of our frees, our crew was around 24 people. There was no point even trying to fit everyone into the dressing room.”

 

 

So, what was the process involved with entering and winning the Unearthed competition like? “Weirdly super easy. We just uploaded our music, basically”. It wasn’t until triple j started to try and contact the members of ESESE that the process became complicated. For various reasons (including dogging debt collectors) no-one was answering their phones, and members overseas were receiving emails “in all caps telling us ‘WE NEED TO SPEAK TO YOU TODAY’ ” – a complete lack of contact a seemingly strange problem for a band with so many members.

They admit that, like most winners of Unearthed comps, “it’s been a bit of a road” to this point. “Lewis Mckirdy has played us a few times at lunch, and we’ve been getting staff reviews on our Unearthed page for a while”. Being on triple j’s radar prior to the comp clearly helped, and they finish off by musing “It is random, but I guess it isn’t too…”. Would they advise other young acts to follow in their footsteps and enter Unearthed? “Why not! they have to choose someone”.

22 Feb Ripe’s Australian Chart (22/2/16)

 

Ripe’s Australian Chart is updated each week with our top tracks recently uploaded by Australian artists, ranked all the way to #1. You’ll find our chart below, and a weekly playlist on the Ripe SoundCloud.

At #30 we have Melbourne’s Daniel Trakell, who is set to release a six track EP titled Paradise in April. ‘Wasted Light‘ is the first single, and if you’re a fan of Tobias Jesso Jr., you’ll dig it. Also out of Melbourne, producer Asdasfr Bawd returns at #28 with a choppy dance remix of the new James Blake track ‘Modern Soul‘. I OH YOU‘s latest signing MOSSY has released his debut single ‘Electric Chair‘ that will appear on his debut EP in May, and jumps in at #27. It’s a cross between the vocals of Oasis and the slower jams on Tame Impala‘s latest album Currents.

The Melbourne duo at Stina Tester & Cinta Masters come in at #22 with ‘Deep Sleep‘ via Listen Records. It starts off a little like ‘She’s Lost Control‘ by Joy Division, before hitting a gothic spiral of ’70s analog keyboard. It’s not exactly The Doors; more like Blondie, or today’s comparison would be Austra. At #21, Sydney’s Charles Murdoch has released ‘Open‘ featuring Chloe Kaul from the duo KLLO. This soothing tune featured on Murdoch’s recently-released debut album Point.

Jumping up to #15, we have ‘Famously Monogamous‘ by Jen Cloher from the Milk! Records family. It’s from a collective Febraury release by the label, and it moves back and forth between sounding like Yuck in the verses, and Weezer in the chorus. Next at #14 is Mio, the project of Melbourne’s Lisa Miosku. Her lo-fi cover of ‘Morning Sun‘ could be mistaken for a single recorded back in the ’40s, her gentle, feather-light sound providing more tension headache relief than paracetamol.

Sliding in at #11 is Ned Beckley aka Lower Spectrum from Perth, who just dropped the second single ‘Masquerade‘ from his upcoming New Haze EP. The track tends to bobble up and down like a ’90s movie trailer theme song – which isn’t a bad thing, because by moving himself away from the strictly dance side of electronic music, he’s quietly carving out his own niche. At #10 is Mall Grab from Newcastle, who has uploaded the third (and title) track from his upcoming four-track Sun Ra EP. If you’re a fan of deep, minimal techno like Leon Vynehall, then start following Mall Grab.

Bendigo’s Fountaineer are set to release their first album later this year, and ‘Still Life‘ finds itself at #6. If Matt Berninger (The National) covered the album Slave Ambient by The War On Drugs, it would likely sound like ‘Still Life’. A lot of my appreciation for ‘Still Life’ sits within its subtle guitar details and effective, restrained vocal delivery. Another country Victorian band, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, continue their hot form with ‘Write Back‘ at #4. With every new R.B.C.F. tune at this point, I automatically assume it will have me shaking around in my chair, due to their endless slick guitar interplay and upbeat nature.

Brisbane band Major Leagues write dreamy garage-pop melodies as well as anyone in the country, and ‘Better Off‘ is another strong example. They make it sound effortless and that’s why ‘Better Off’ comes in at #3. The EP Dream States comes out in April, but I recommend catching them next month on their Australian tour with Alvvays, a band who impressed me at SXSW last year. Melbourne’s I’lls singer Simon Lam has a long-running solo project called Nearly Oratorio, and has nabbed the #2 spot this week. ‘Tin‘ will feature on his new EP in April and it has feels attached all over it when he sings “I’m home sick, when I’m out of you”. I loved the potential of I’lls, but I also can’t help but think that the stripped-back clarity of his own project will work even better. Nearly Oratorio has potential to be the project that makes Simon Lam a household Australian name.

At #1, Good Morning replace themselves with another track off their Glory EP called ‘Give Me Something To Do‘. You know you’re in a class of your own when you’re only competing against yourself. ‘Give Me Something To Do’ is their most versatile song to date, starting at a breezy pace with a casual saxophone before fading out, only to re-emerge with a guitar riff that gives me an excited smile every time. Damn these cheeky Melbourne buggers and their wizardry.

16 Feb Ripe’s Australian Chart (16/2/16)

 

Ripe’s Australian Chart is back for 2016. Once again we’ll be posting an update each week on our top tracks recently uploaded by Australian artists, ranked all the way to #1. You’ll find our chart below, and a weekly playlist on the Ripe SoundCloud.

We start at #30 with ‘Baker‘ by Robert Muinos from Melbounre. ‘Baker’ is the third track on his latest EP titled You Are Alone. Robert channels the quiet sorrow of Elliot Smith with life observing lyrics you’d hear from Sun Kil Moon or Father John Misty. At #27 Diet from Melbourne are back with a follow up to their highly addictive first single ‘Your House‘. You’d likely slide ‘The Rip‘ into the surf rock genre, but it’s not the sunny surf rock kind, more the rainy and wearing a bodysuit kind.

Up in Sydney; Marcus Whale from Collarbones dropped his first official single that’s not a demo. ‘My Captain‘ finds itself at #23 with its industrial pop sounds. I can now see where Marcus Whale is trying to take his sound, and there’s definitely an interesting market for it. Back in Melbourne at #20 with the trio The Sanctuary, who pushed past that post-Flume sound with their first single ‘Miss You‘. The vocals carry a defeated and vulnerable tone that Oscar Key Sung routinely pulls off effectively.

The most moving track of the week goes to Hayden Calnin at #18 with ‘Cut Love‘. Hayden sets a very bleak landscape via Sigur Rós with Bon Iver vocals. It’s a combination I’ve heard many times before, but he sells the emotion well when he sings “cut love!”. The next producer is a little mysterious; I only know that Nolan House is based in Melbourne. At #15, ‘On The Wall‘ pops with ear-grabbing sounds that carefully get pushed and then released. It’s meticulous without sounding robotic.

We jump up to #8 with the Melbourne duo Back Back Forward Punch, whose name always reminds me BadBadNotGood. They’re back with the most addictive song of the week called ‘Machine Believing‘. It’s vintage Miami Horror with a deep house bassline. Not the most complex recipe, but good luck not wanting to dance immediately. The Vacant Smiles are next up. At #5, ‘Drenched‘ jumps out at you like early Surfer Blood or even The Strokes without the classic guitar hooks, but instead with a smooth and sneaky slow down change up one minute in. If you dig ‘Drenched’, I suggest giving the whole new album You’re Not Really Here a listen.

However the track of the week at #3 goes to Ara Koufax with ‘Makers‘. The confidence is glowing in the Melbourne duo right now. ‘Makers’ sounds like they’re just toying with us, that’s how effortless it sounds. When you feel like an artist is both teasing you and pleasing you at the time, you know the creative juices are flowing. The best part is that it’s hard to directly trace the influences behind ‘Makers’. Ara Koufax are coming into their own in 2016.

04 Feb Ripe’s Australian Chart (4/2/16)

 

Ripe’s Australian Chart is back for 2016. Once again we’ll be posting an update each week on our top tracks recently uploaded by Australian artists, ranked all the way to #1. You’ll find our chart below, and a weekly playlist on the Ripe SoundCloud.
Flume surprised us with ‘Smoke & Retribution‘ at #25. He has Vince Staples and Perth’s own Kučka to thank for injecting new life into his upcoming second album. It’ll be interesting to see if Flume settles into a producer role for singers similar to that of Disclosure and Rustie, or if he aims to remain the focal point of his project.

At #24 River Yarra out of Melbourne is on the Solitaire record label with other favourites of ours Good Morning, I’lls and Asdasfr Bawd. He has uploaded a reflective down tempo track called ‘Song For Tan‘, which seems to be dedicated to the passing of his dog. Rest in piece, pup.

Sliding in at #15 is ‘Mikrowave‘ by S M Jenkins from Sydney’s Step-Panther. The vocals sound like Kevin Mitchell from the ’90s Australian band Jebediah, but the vibe is more in the vein of Dick Diver or The Ocean Party. This is a strong start to his solo project I’d say.

Annika Schmarsel aka Alice Ivy from Melbourne comes in at #14 with ‘Touch‘ featuring Georgia Van Etten. It’s a throwback to artists such as Air France and The Tough Alliance. You can catch her perform in Sydney, Geelong, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart this month.

Adelaide’s Summer Flake caught our attention in October last year with her Time Rolls By EP, and now she’s already back with the first single ‘Shoot And Score‘ off her second record Hello Friends. There’s a heavier grunge element present on ‘Shoot And Score’ then her previous material, and I’m curious to see how the new album plays out live.

At #12 we head up north to Brisbane for the catchiest guitar hook and chorus of the week: Chook Race with ‘At Your Door‘. This very addictive single is the first from their Around The House LP due out later this year via the severely-underrated Brisbane label Tenth Court.

The biggest mover and shaker of the week however is from Melbourne’s Hoodlem with ‘Kintsugi‘. The track has jumped up into #7 with its fusion of oozing bass lines, soul, and soft electronic dabbles. The duo follow in the steps of our local heroes The Harpoons and provide, via sharp craftsmanship, a genuine sexiness that’s often missing from Australia’s music scene. I expect to hear the name Hoodlem a lot more in 2016.
