It doesn't hurt that ESTA keeps such good company. Signed to the SOULECTION label, which is also home to Sango, Ta-Ku, and atu, this San Diego-based producer turned us into fans when he released a remix of Ciara's "Body Party." The synthy, bass-driven take on the original had us glued to his SoundCloud for weeks. Likewise SOULECTION co-founders Andre Power, Joe Kay, and Guillaume Bonte cite their October 2012 discovery of ESTA on his dense catalog of productions released independently on SoundCloud. Not long after, ESTA signed with them. His debut LP, dropped in March 2013, was a ten-track release called Gradient.

ESTA's mix for SSENSE features a wide selection of his own productions, including "Rock With U," "Separate Ways," "Paradise," "Whatever U Need," and our favorite, "Body Party." It also features tracks from Miguel, Tinashe, Kaytranada, Mr. Carmack, and fellow SOULECTION signees Ta-Ku, Kings, and Sango.
