Sensu, a true sensory captivator, blends her background as a classically trained pianist with her years producing hip-hop beats to create a boundary-shattering new sound. Sensu beckons listeners into her world and launches them into a journey through the mind in her newest “Issues” featuring Ryck Jane. Sensu’s impressive trademark sound landed her major performances at renowned festivals such as Zurich Open Air, as well as tours with the likes of Pablo Nouvelle. Her label Quartz Records, freshly signed to Universal Music, boasts home for the artists’ full-length debut.
In the middle of the album process, I was very inspired by Asian music and instruments. Due to the fact that my roots are in hip-hop music, I wanted to create a rap song for my album. I just mixed Asian and electronic sounds with hip-hop elements and thought about adding a female MC to make this track complete. A few years back when I still made sample-based hip hop beats an MC from Los Angeles, Ryck Jane, hit me up to get a beat I made for her project. She’s amazingly talented and I thought she would perfectly match this track I made for my debut album, so I decided to hit her up to make a second feature happen. The song is called ‘Issues’ and is related to those individuals who deal with depression and how they cope with it. – Sensu
