Midweek Techno with: BRUVS – Perseus #Acid #Techno #Dub

Let’s hit the middle of the week hard. It deserves to have some powerful techno with a bit of dub and dollop of acid. BRUVS are the chaps to provide it.

BRUVS are from who knows where*. But we have Perseus from their EP of the same name as the featured track. As you will recall from your no doubt classically influenced education, Perseus was the legendary founder of Mycenae and of the Perseid dynasty. He was one of the great Greek heroes and slayer of monsters. Probably most remembered for beheading the Gorgon Medusa.

As a track Perseus is definitely in the heroic vein. It’s a big techno track, with a bit of a dub techno sheen. Similar to some of Bandulu’s work in the 90s. Opening with some acid squelchy beats and some epic, straining strings this builds itself up onto righteous fury befitting a hero. This is confident enough to stretch itself out beyond six minutes. And it’s clever enough not to seek to batter you into submission but to entice you into its world. It hisses with sibilant IDM sounds and the clash of swords. Techno for the age of heroes.

Whole EP

* Los Angeles, apparently.
