Berliner Wes Wieland Releases On Brighton Techno Label
Brighton Techno label Nightshift Records have recruited Berliner Wes Wieland to front their latest addition of their techno catalogue.
Wes is a young DJ and Producer who at the age of 12 learned to play the guitar, the drums and even played in a rock band!
At 16 he got his first taste of electronic music and the young Berliner began to delve into various styles, which saw him frequent regular clubs and network with DJ's and promoters across Berlin.
Naturally, Wes began to dabble and produce on his own, creating sounds inspired from his club ventures and the artists that captivated him. Soon gigs started to rack up across Berlin's thriving club scene as well as releases on labels such as Blaufield Music, Mosquito Beats, Zoowork and Volt9 Records. His releases have received support from artists such as Joseph Capriati, Spektre, Cristian Varela, Dr. Motte, Booka Shade, Dario Sorano, Darmec and many more. Most notably Wes remixed Booka Shade's 'Black Crystal' in May sharing the release with impressive remixers such as Claude VonStroke and Circus maestro Yousef.
Wes' new release on Nightshift Records is a Techno stomper with luscious vocals gracing 'Find Me On The Floor', a track that equally rubs shoulders sound wise with a label like Drumcode. Track 1 also gets the remix treatment from Birmingham based Gary Burrows who burst onto the scene with his explosive, energetic and driving Techno in December 2016 with two tracks signed to Spektre's Respekt Recordings.
Track 2 'Systematic' carries the baton on from 'Find Me On The Floor' as if passed along in a dirty reacharound in a dark underground club, with 'Systematic' now taking the lead and punching the air towards the finishing line. Track 2 sees Voltage Records Owner Anna V. on remix duties delivering a master class in thundering Techno. Early support has come from Spektre, Durtysoxxx, Agent Orange, Ignacio Arfeli, Paco Osuna, Mr Bizz, Optimuss and D-Formation.
Nightshift Records is the brainchild of Sami Kubu, specialising in the darker side of house and techno music, radio shows and events. Nightshift has over it’s small life, built itself a strong following and great artist base. The label believes in artists that constantly push the boundaries within their productions and strive to deliver cutting edge Techno grooves.
