#WorshipWednesday- Succulent- Ital Progression (Original Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQEOAYbCKTM Worship Recordings۪ beginning chapters deal heavily in a sound that is the culmination of House and Dub. Many artists during this part of the label۪s history had perfected this fusion, but had done so in their own unique style. One production duo that balanced this formula quite nicely is Succulent. The two men behind the name are Adam Tenenbaum and Sean Kamano. Succulent۪s 'Natural Progression' EP (WOR 013) exemplified the magic that could be conjured when combing the beautiful worlds of House and Dub. In early 2002 the release would find itself being reviewed in the esteemed west coast electronic music magazine, BPM. The magazine commended the duo for being perfectly in tune with the label۪s vision at the time. This Worship Wednesday we give a nod to Ital Progression۝, which is one of four tracks that were released as part of the Natural Progression release. The EP۪s title certainly speaks to the rich, unrefined flow of music that is contained in this track. Recently Tenebaum aka Nectar was involved with Seattle based music production company, Inneflight Music. It appears that Adam۪s initial involvement with music stems from being an advent guitarist and vocalist. According to his artist bio on the site, Succulent was a project that was used as a format for Adam to produce with friends. This project would see a release on Grayhound Recordings in 2001 and 2003 Adam and Sean۪s "Mercurial Dreams" (Grayhound Recordings) track was selected for Lee Burridge۪s 24:7 mix compilation. Reading further into the biography on Innerflight, we learned that Tenabaum became touched by electronic music through Dj Garth۪s Wicked parties and mixes from DJ Dan. On solo production missions as Nectar, releases appeared on Grayhound Recordings and a 2000 release on Worship with the Moj Aniol EP. We are definitely pleased with this piece of Worship history and look forward to possible future projects from both Adam and Sean.

#WorshipWednesday- Seinan- Lion (Original Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ric78Q-LUX8&list=UUaGVqzbOskaIE251UiImDFA The UK and US has always had a strong relationship when it comes to electronic music and its culture. This can also be said for Worship Recordings as many of its artists, and most importantly the fans, are from this area of the world. Today۪s Worship Wednesday we celebrate a release from one of the UK۪s most prolific producers, Andy Graham aka Sei A, and better known to the label as Seinan. The production moniker, Seinan, consists of Graham and his now label partner, Gordon Logan. Together they released the Borrowed Roots۝ EP (WOR.17) back in 2003 on Worship Recordings. The EP consists of three strong offerings that fit the mold of what was at the apex of the Worship sound in the late 90s-early 2000s. Though it was hard to choose which track to feature, Lion۝, was finally agreed upon. Before we dissect this Worship classic lets first take a look at Andy۪s past and what he is currently up to at the moment. According to last.fm, it appears that back in 2003 is when Graham would start to see his productions being released. The Seinan duo in 2003-2004 would see distribution from Deep Freeze Recordings, Troniscole, and of course the mighty Worship. Still remaining in touch with Gordon, Andy would break from the Seinan pseudonym, and begin to release as a solo artist under the guise, Droido. Graham۪s Droido productions would consist of remixes and originals from the realm of Tech House. A notable release from this chapter would be his collaboration with fellow UK artist Milton Jackson. Milton, a UK powerhouse producer in his own right, together with Droido would release the Long Circuit EP via Troniscole. In 2008 Graham would begin to produce under the name Sei A, and is now where most of his more recent tracks are coming from. Sei A۪s music comfortably walks the line between House and Techno, with at times having a moody sensibility. The productions from Sei A have seen releases on an impressive list of labels including and not limited to Kompatk, Aus Music, Rebirth, Turbo Recordings and Soma. Together with Gordon Logan, the pair has created Seinan Music, which serves as a platform for their music and others. With producing aside, Andy has toured the US and a large portion of Europe bringing his unique sound and style as a DJ. Rewinding back to 2003, Graham and Logan۪s Lion۝ track could not fit the Worship catalog any better. Lion۝ contains a lush organic drum pattern that rolls along nicely with a tight high hat and kick. Dazzling keys and a warm organ sample take turns moving in and out of the track with a reverb۪ed vocal; classic Worship right here!
