Pittsburgh native, Tom Hricik, who goes by his stage name Tenova, is a rising force in house music on the East Coast. The young artist not only has been spending years producing music of his own, but is also the resident DJ and music manager of Tilden, the hottest afterhours club in Pittsburgh. The young talent just dropped a three-track EP featuring remixing from Jan Van Lier on Stem & Leaf.
The label's 24th release introduces Tenova as a newly signed artist to the label. His first offering for the label offers melody, groove and feeling throughout. The title track "Faultless" plunges into a deeper sound, with a memorable synth line and accompanying bass. "Moscato Kiss" stays deep, but brings some additional energy to the release with its 4 on the floor pace and bright percussion patterns. On remix duties is Jan van Lier, delivering a solid tech house remix of the title track. Keep an eye out for Tenova along with Stem & Leaf for future releases of quality underground dance music.
