Blanke Releases Masterful ‘Emergence’ EP

Multi-genre producer Blanke and his highly-anticipated debut Monstercat EP, Emergence has finally arrived. Aptly named, the EP blends a mixture of polarizing emotions and energies, symbolizing the resilience found in the aftermath of challenges. It conveys a poignant yet hopeful narrative — amid chaos, beauty is bound to arise, echoing into themes of renewal and cyclical transformation presenting an aspect of depth and darkness that can precede change. The accompanying visuals display a city consumed by plant life, highlighting rebirth and growth. Listen here. Last month, we were also able to sit down with Blanke for an interview as he kicked off his tour. Read it here.

The ‘Emergence’ EP is a diverse representation of my musical journey over the past year. There have been a lot of ups and downs, personally and creatively, and this EP shows a breakthrough of my own personality, passion, creativity and skill that I hope will resonate with whoever listens to it. Every story has an intricacy that we cant see.
