zensei ゼンセー shares, “destination heartbreak pt.2 is the ‘heartbreak’ part of the series. It slowly morphs into a sad tone, which really describes a moment in my life. It is inspired by when I was going into my younger years, going into relationships prematurely, knowing those decisions would tear me apart.”
The full-length destination heartbreak LP is due this spring. For the recording, zensei ゼンセー buried himself in old files and hunted passionately for samples to use, finding himself going through old computer files and photos to draw inspiration. “I did this all in my own home while sulking in my old memories,” zensei ゼンセー adds. “Every track has a meaning to me that warps me back in time to an exact moment. The memories feel so real to me, that I can still see it vividly in my head and smell the air around me.”
