Pre-Friday election techno with: Weska – Meru #Techno

Here’s a track just right for the heart-pumping tension of going to the shopping centre community hall to vote today. It has all the high octane thrill of choices between Count Binface, Burning Pink or Brian Rose. Meanwhile, I postal voted a few days ago. But let that not stop us celebrating an uplifting techno track from Weska.

Originally from Toronto, Weska is now located in Berlin after working across Europe, including Ibiza. His sound is that of main room and big dance floors. There’s a totally confident use of dynamics here. Meru from his new EP of the same name is “named after one of the most treacherous mountains to climb in the Himalayas, a goal he’s pinnedĀ to the top of his bucket list.”

The track is brilliantly accessible techno but with a bit of welcome Berlin darkness. There are big beefy beats from the outset allied to a bass line that has just enough leftfield edge to give a little shiver. It’s modern but with enough of techno’s 90s heyday to be totally accessible to all. The track offers sections that lift and sections that offer temporary pauses. This is a track for hedonistic abandon and a side order of sleaze. Proper club techno.
