New work for an artist can stand as a symbol of transition, embodying moments of introspection and evolution. “Sechelt” represents just this for Peter McMinn, a raw and intimate diary entry from a period of significant personal growth.

pete.mcm is the latest iteration of Peter McMinn, formally known as DJ Küsse, also known as Saberhägen (of Hi & Saberhägen). The featured track is part of his debut album titled Lossless Life Files, an array of ethereal sounds, traversing elements of lo-fi, ambient, and downtempo. As a Berlin-based artist hailing from Ireland, the release features several references to his Irish heritage, offering a fresh and distinctive perspective on Celtic culture.

Subdued breakbeats, the undercurrent of the record, sway and pulsate in a cyclical motion, glittered with an array of synthesised piano notes and sampled ubiquitous sounds. It’s the kind of music that lends itself to a quality audio set-up to fully appreciate the details of Peter’s unique craftsmanship.

“Sechelt” feels meditative, not only for the artist, ruminating on his journey to self-improvement, but also how it encourages the listener to engage. Inspiring idle time for reflection, the composition guides one through a delicate balance between hopefulness and melancholy.

“Sechelt” is out now via Berlin record label CC polygum. Immerse yourself in the track below.
