Seattle native Kendoll introduces us to “tekno” with latest edit

The third track on Grimes’ second studio album, Weregild, is as dark and, flat out, weird, as they come. From the Canadian singer-songwriter’s cat meowing on the intro, to some steamy, sensual lyrics, it’s nothing short of mesmerizing. Released back in 2010, Weregild is far from a dance music track, and no well-known EDM artist has dared to edit it. Until now.

Seattle native, and Dance Music Northwest alum, Kendoll is stepping up to the plate, but not in a way you’d expect from one of the hottest names in house music today. Released Monday, Kendoll’s Weregild edit sees her step into the world of techno (or tekno, as she calls it) for the first time.

Gone is the meowing cat. Gone is that weird summery-psychedelic looping beat. Enter the BOOM. Does she hit a home run? You decide!

If you saw Kendoll perform in Seattle last year at Dillion Francis’ massive, or, most recently, Resolution, you heard some funky house music grooves. Tekno sees this Night Bass rising star try something new. The result? Her most punishing, polarizing track yet. And we are here for it!

What do you think about Kendoll’s tekno? Let us know in our comments section on Facebook, and Twitter!
