Arizona based producer, Ekonovah, aka Stephen Scotti, is catching ears and turning heads with his upcoming EP titled ‘The Beginning’, which was released on February 9th via IN/ROTATION. Along with the new EP comes a brand new direction from the artist, focusing more on the message of his music than ever before. In doing so, Ekonovah is also showcasing his talents beyond production, providing the vocals for both tracks on ‘The Beginning’. Scotti states that this new EP‘s title track is “the most important song I have ever released.”
Ekonovah began writing the track at the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown, which resulted in a major shift in his sound and songwriting. He began singing on his own songs which allowed him to connect more with his music and to hone in on more vulnerable topics, rather than to rely on what would work on a club dance floor. “The Beginning; is a song about self-love and knowing that you are great, but at the same time understanding that there is always room for improvement,” says Scotti of the title track. “I wrote The Beginning when COVID lockdowns were starting, and ended up spending the duration of quarantine experimenting with my vocals and songwriting with vulnerable topics. To date, ‘The Beginning’ is still one of my favorite tracks, even as it approaches one year since finishing the track!”.
The rising artist is coming off of the momentum of hitting 300,000 streams on his track ‘Medicine’, as well as releasing a remix pack earlier this year on IN/ROTATION. Ekonovah has also had successful releases with labels like Insomniac Records, Confession, Dim Mak, Do Not Duplicate Recordings, and more. Pre-COVID, Ekonovah came off of massive performances at EDC Las Vegas, Bonnaroo, Decadence Arizona, and more in 2019, setting the tone for a bright future ahead.
