Driving techno with: Whispering Wires – Turbulence #Techno #DeepHouse

Let’s accelerate towards the end of the week with some driving techno from Whispering Wires.

Whispering Wires is musician, composer, and producer, Rhett Williams, from Vancouver, Canada. His new EP is called Quarantine. And as so much else these days it’s Covid related. Did you know that the word quarantine comes from quarantena, meaning “forty days”, used in the Venetian language in the 14th and 15th centuries. The word designated the period during which all ships were required to be isolated before passengers and crew could go ashore during the Black Death plague. Back to Whispering Wires who says of the EP, “It’s a snapshot of processing the pandemic early on – the tension, dissonance, insomnia, and crushing silence.”

Turbulence is the featured track and it’s a brilliant tune pitched between melodic techno and deep house. Starts with a dark and menacing bass that rushes towards you. And then it’s offset by the gentlest synth chord. All fragile and naked. And then everything starts to settle into place. There’s a perky optimism in the melody despite the ongoing darkness. I love the balance that the track delivers. This is properly excellent motorway music. It has that effortless sense of speed and power but with great subtlety.
