Sensu Releases “Listen” ft. Otis Junior Ahead of ‘Embrace’ Album



Jasmin Peterhans, better known as Sensu, has been continuously gliding swiftly into electronic music with her myriad of talents that extend far beyond producing and performing. Based in Switzerland, Sensu has unveiled her brand-new track “Listen” featuring Otis Junior, serving as the first single off of her upcoming debut album Embrace.

“Listen” is a blend of Sensu’s background as a classically trained pianist with her years producing hip-hop beats to create a boundary shattering new sound. The single exudes an all too familiar warmth with Otis Junior’s sweet vocals, gliding over Sensu’s glitchy beats, while her atmospheric chords ebb and flow within her immaculate production style, putting this young producer in a realm of her own. The sweet overtone of “Listen,” is backed by starlit synths and whimsical rhythms that simultaneously pack a strong and intense vibe. Alongside a gripping new music video, “Listen” has surely set the tone for new tunes to come by Sensu.

“The song ‘Listen’ perfectly represents the style of music I create. It’s a track with drum sounds that you could use in a hip-hop track and synthesizer sounds which could be used in a trance song, so it creates that electronic sound mixed with an organic feel to it. During the album process I was looking for a soulful voice for this track and I guess I found the perfect match on Instagram – Otis Junior from Louisville. He has an absolutely beautiful and soulful voice which matches the track perfectly and gives a nice warm feeling to it.” – Sensu

The depth of Sensu’s musical scale goes back to her earlier days of dabbling with hip-hop styles, giving her an edgy base that transfers over smoothly to her electronic sounds of today. While her music borrows aspects of experimental, electronica, and chillstep, a soulful warmth resonates from each of her productions that places them in a category all on their own. Sensu owns a sort of tech-savviness that creates a range of production techniques from building melodic progressions, to incorporating vocal samples and bass lines, to lastly adding the drum pattern (not the order most producers go with). For Sensu, it works, and this uniqueness landed her a signing with Universal Music for her Quartz Records label, claiming 2019 as her year to kill the game.
