Bart Skils and Weska have released their third EP on Drumcode, Something More.
Bart Skils has established himself as one of Holland’s most respected and in-demand tecnho DJs. Meanwhile, Weska‘s passion for the electronic music scene began at age 15 and he has since broken out of the Toronto underground and become a fixture in the global scene.
A transatlantic connection that has spurred the prior EPs Polarize and Shades of Summer, as well as a remix of German DJ and electronic music producer, Sven Väth’s, classic “Spectrum” under his Metal Master alias on Cocoon. This unexpected duo is becoming into one of techno’s most exciting partnerships.
“Bart and I have become close friends over the years and genuinely love making music together. Despite living on different continents, making music is seamless. We’re always on the same page creatively so we’re constantly bouncing ideas off one another. ‘Something More’ and ‘Palm Strings’ is a pair of these ideas that came fully to life and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”
Their EP Something More continues their on-point production flow. The title track is absolutely made for festival stages with a fast mix of sharp drumlines, celestial pads and a soaring male vocal that balances the wistful and euphoric on a knife’s edge. Meanwhile, “Palm Strings” is much sleeker, featuring rolling percussive loops and an atmospheric melody line, before a powerful bass riff takes the energy out of the room.
