Weston & Engine (WE) are an electronic music duo from Johannesburg, South Africa.
"It is a little known fact that the brain waves of two musicians synchronize when they are performing in harmony. This is never more prevalent than in the soundscape created by this inspirational duo. A musical entity founded on respect for each other's individual influences and tastes in sound, Weston & Engine have earned their place as respected artists in the industry. Having several records signed to labels such as Chocolat Records and Whoyostro, the pair have seen themselves become pioneers in their ethereal Deep Tech sound. The duo have also achieved the accolade of performing on some of South Africa's most established dance floors including And, Truth and the It's Personal Picnic Festival amongst others."
A diverse combination of talent , skill and hard work has brought these two inspired musicians together. Formulated at Organic Audio Johannesburg, the duo have found new life and respect in each other with their respective influences and tastes in sound. The sound can be described as Deep Progressive Techno blended with a combination of rolling deep grooves, melodies and powerful basslines .
Their inspiration comes from a broad base of genres - Jazz, Reggae, The Blues, Classical, Trip Hop, Hip Hop, Garage, House Music, Techno, Minimal and Progressive House.
