Canadian DJ and electronic music genius Maurya Sevak started recording at the tender age of 14. He’s still only 16 years old now but such is his talent that he’s already gained recognition from his contemporaries and elders alike as an outstanding EDM artist. Maurya’s style encompasses a respect for those who have gone before him, while also fearlessly exploring new sonicscapes. This is no less evident in his latest release, ‘See It’, his most recent in a series of extremely accomplished singles.
‘See It’ sees Sevak fully realise the sound he’s been developing from the very start. Soulful vocals, thundering bass, layers of synths, and beats that work just as well on the dance floor as they do on a chill evening at home. Fans who loved his previous releases, ‘Alleviate’, and ‘In The Mirror’, are sure to agree that Sevak has now reached a level of assuredness and confidence that would be remarkable in someone twice his age.
Not only has Sevak come very good at making his recordings, but he’s also come far in terms of underscoring their themes and vibe by way of his music videos, with the clip for ‘See It’ his most elaborate to date. It’s a romance with hints of science-fiction, interplayed with arresting images of mortal combat. Maurya Sevak appears in the clip, playing an alien whose integration into human society is assisted by a young woman, who is clearly in love with him. She is however unaware that Sevak’s character is pursued by a sword-wielding antagonist, bent on cutting his adversary down.
The climax of the story takes place in a car park, where Sevak, defending himself and his girlfriend, strikes back as hard as he can.
