Tennyson – Like What EP | Name Your Price; Plus New Remix Collaboration with Skrillex & White Sea

by Dan Getz | Electronic music is a style that primary focuses on the virtuosity of the producer, which often leads to a lack of musicianship and musical value. However, the Canadian brother-sister duo Tennyson has shown again and again how balance can be found between musical complexity and production virtuosity.
