Life and Death welcome Italian artist Whitesquare for a fantastic debut on the label that includes a remix from boss DJ Tennis.
Whitesquare hails from Rome and runs his own Lyase Recordings while also releasing on Freerange and VOD. Those are perfect foils for his always characterful, cosmically infused house, techno and disco grooves which come with plenty of synth colour and timeless qualities. Always folding his own influences in with classic tropes, his genre-spanning productions, and DJ sets have made him a key underground figure since first emerging in 2012.
‘Visual Distortion of Reality’ kicks things off with a brilliantly rugged bassline underlining loose hits and drum fills. A robotic acid line takes the track far into the future and primes it for real dance floor destruction. The excellent ‘Not Moving’ is a spaced-out electro styled cut with lithe drums and sleek synths journeying into the cosmos. Another killer bassline brings things to life in real style as you’re taken ever higher. Lastly, ‘Jasmine’ is another trip to the stars, with a squelchy bassline and crisp snares impossible to ignore as they ride on perfectly programmed drums. This one gets a subtle Re-Match from DJ Tennis who layers in a little more synth drama and darkness as a result.
