Esseks releases “Broken Bones (Sticks & Stones)” EP

Esseks releases “Broken Bones (Sticks & Stones)” EP

Brooklyn based producer Esseks (Sam Eckstein) brings a distinctive flavor of electronica to his latest EP release, “Broken Bones” (Sticks & Stones).

The EP is divided in two: Five tracks under “Sticks.” Five tracks under “Stones.” This concept plays nicely. The “Stones” tracks are tonally “heavier” than the rest of the EP. 

At times, “Broken Bones” almost feels like a throwback to the stomping fuzz of prime-era dubstep. But ultimately, Esseks’ glitch-hop and hip-hop influences assert dominance. J Dilla-referencing tracks like “Dill” show off Esseks’ swagger and ear for inventive melody. While the emotive, “wonderfully strange “Pigeon Toes” showcases the range of Eckstein’s inventive production. “Broken Bones” is good 'ish. -juan leon
