The Barcelona-based producer and DJ Wehbba returns to the Drumcode label with outstanding work, ideal for huge dancefloors. The title of this EP is ‘Dynamo‘, which captures both the characteristic elements of classic techno and some hypnotic sounds that transport you.
Wehbba is one of the main producers of electronic music from Brazil, having produced and participated in some of the most respected labels and parties in the industry around the world. His early years of techno and house led him to his first international recognition in 2006, at the German Killa Beat imprint. Since he moved to Barcelona and immersed himself in the scene in Europe, he has seen a steady stream of standout EPs on labels like Drumcode, Soma, Bedrock, 2020Vision, Knee Deep In Sound, and Tronic.
Two years onward from his critically acclaimed album, Straight Lines & Sharp Corners, Wehbba returns for the brilliant Three-tracker ‘Dynamo’. If this EP is characterized by something, it would be its variety, taking us from the darkest techno to the melodic, even including some acid influence.
Wehbba – ‘Dynamo’ EP
The title track delivers bags of galloping energy, as organic tones and wicked acid mid-sections make it pop out, while vocal samples from Marlon Brando sit in the background. ‘Ataraxia’ is dramatic and celestial in equal doses, intended to represent the “Stoic term for enlightenment or equanimity, which is my main focus since becoming a Vipassana practitioner a few years ago.”
Wehbba explains. The track represents the journey from darkness to light over the last two years and is the artist’s own personal “we’re back” anthem. ‘Strange Dreamz’ has Wehbba using the vocal samples to create a fun and funky techno weapon made for big moments.
Besides his stunning music in singles and EPs, The artist has also been making waves with his hardware-only ‘Wehbba’s Live Station’ show, which explores the spontaneous effects of recreating old and new compositions in a live environment. Highlights so far and forthcoming include Awakenings, Barcelona’s iconic Brunch in the Park event, and Sónar Istanbul.
