This next jam is simply beautiful.
Over the past year and a half, we’ve championed one of the next two artists, Stephen Burke aka SirensCeol, from the most embryonic stages of his production career. Fortunately for Stephen, both his work ethic and intellect (the man attends Berkeley University, need we say more?) have catapulted his talents to the forefront of EDM production with his unique approach to melodic dubstep and many other genres.
I vividly remember when SirensCeol opened for another enigmatic, the genre-blurring production prodigy known as Savant. Josh Hernandez, the CEO of Alek’s record company (SectionZ Records) also happened to be in attendance as well.
Before the show began, I had excitedly rushed up to him and told him to pay special attention to the opening act, Stephen.
After SirensCeol performed a wicked set and was transitioning to let Aleks set up his gear, I beckoned Josh over to the front of the stage where I was standing.
“You gotta sign that artist,” I yelled over the music playing during the entr’acte, “He’s incredible.”
Josh simply smiled and gave me an ever so cool, “Yeah, maybe.”
Next thing I knew, six months later, young Stephen had released his first full-length on SectionZ Records with Josh.
Despite the fact that I love telling people ‘I told you so’, I will try my hardest to abstain here.
However, California-based producer SirensCeol has come quite a long way. This next jam with Varien will only serve to further this fact. Featuring the incredibly dulcet vocals of Aloma Steele (which Stephen himself was incredibly satisfied with), “Moonlight” reached the number one spot on Beatport’s Dubstep charts in virtually no time at all.
Let’s give a congratulatory “follow” to Varien and SirensCeol on their prospective social media outlets. We hope you enjoy this absolutely fantastic track, which was released on Monstercat…go figure.
Great work boys, keep em’ coming.
