WEN’s new set EPHEM:ERA observes grime from a studied distance, taking the core club ingredients of the sound and applying the WEN magic to them in order to construct semi-abstracted electronic music that makes you wonder: is this a piece, or a track? Either way, twelve slices of great audio. EPHEM:ERA is out on Big Dada.

Carve + Gaze

We were all asking … Wen we’d be hearing something new from one of the most original voices in instrumental grime. Having been quite quiet since a flurry of releases in 2014 and 2015, the Kent producer has resurfaced on Big Dada and fronted four tracks of square-wave skullduggery. The anti-drop on lead single ‘Blips’ is a joy.

Finesse EP

Finesse EP by Wen is an effortless melting pot of early dub step, grime and techno forcing previously familiar genres into unchartered territory. Over the three tracks you will hear finely crafted sci-fi sounds, tribal beats that further melds dub step and techno and a closing track that clocks in at a frantic 160 bpm and recalls the likes of Photek.

Wen (featuring Riko Dan)
Play Your Corner (Walton / Kahn and Neek Remixes)

A gigantic track here: the Walton remix of Wen feat. Riko Dan’s already pretty enormous grime smasher Play Your Corner. He makes it all the heavier, all the darker. On the B-side is Kahn & Neek’s take, which steps back a little to offer a different spin on the material. Club-ready 12” on Keysound.

Swingin’ / Facta Remix

Due to a burgeoning demand for such a thing, a series of limited Black Label releases from the Badimup label starts with a reissue of the classic tune, Swingin’ by Wen. The other side features a remix by Facta. It is pressed on to translucent violet coloured vinyl, so it’s going to look nice spinning on your deck, too.

Senary Cycles EP

Low-key EP of melodic club music courtesy of producer Wen. The six tracks of Senary Cycles move through near ambient spaces and into a range of rhythmic approaches, from straightforward to subtly lurking to UK Funky. Plenty of talent on display here on this double 12” release on Soundman Chronicles.


If not now… Wen? Actually NOW is about right in the case of this rising London producer, who’s been rightly touted as a prime mover in grime’s recent resurgence. His debut for Dusk + Blackdown’s Keysound label is a cutting edge exercise in urban electronic music, distilling elements from the past 20 years of UK club music into what sounds eerily like the future. The album comprises 12 tracks on the CD version while the LP spreads 8 across two sides of vinyl.
