Premiere: Weska – Catalyst


Talented Toronto-bred techno titan Weska has amassed an impressive discography over the past few years. After garnering international attention by way of notable releases on Drumcode, Suara, Filth On Acid and Kraftek, he made a professional pivot in 2019 to digitally self-release his productions without a label.

The rising DJ/producer is energized by his DIY ethos on his upcoming Fourth Wave EP. Weska leverages the freedom to let loose another inspired collection of hard-hitting tracks that elevates his work to a new plateau.

We’re thrilled to world premiere “Catalyst,” a dark and foreboding offering from the three-cut release.

Over seven tense minutes, Weska constructs a taut, menacing groove that’s packed with big kick drums, meandering synth lines and a persistent female vocal sample (“you need me”).

Hit the play button below and be sure to pick up the Fourth Wave EP on May 1.
