Travis Stewart is a sound designer, composer and electronic music producer, best known as Sentiom. Over the past two-plus decades, Stewart has composed music for film scores before gradually moving towards electronic music as one-half of the EDM duo Paragon Axis, an outfit whose material has amassed over one-million streams across DSPs. With Sentiom, Stewart crafts lush and melodic techno/deep house that frequently sees him pairing organic melodies with aggressive synthesizer work and driving bass lines.
Earlier this year, I wrote about “No Limits,” a track that featured glistening synth arpeggios, skittering 808s, a relentless motorik-like groove and rousingly anthemic hooks and choruses paired with a sultry pop starlet-like vocal sample. The result was a song that seemed to channel Robyn and Little Boots with a similar crowd-pleasing accessibility.
Stewart’s latest Sentiom single, “Cosmos” is a slickly produced, club and lounge friendly banger built around lush synth arpeggios, skittering tweeter and woofer rattling beats and a relentless groove. Vocalist Jes Hudak contributes soulful vocals singing introspective lyrics over the remarkably danceable production. The result is a song that sonically brings Snap!‘s “Rhythm Is A Dancer” to mind — but with a sleek, modern production.
