DESCRIPTION

It seems like the Italians are well and truly taking over here at
Freerange these days. Following hot on the heels of releases from Stefano
Ritteri and Bugsy we now present you with a brilliant three tracker from
Rome-based producer Whitesquare. Known for previous releases on 2020
Vision and Toy Tonics Whitesquare has switched up his sound a little to
delve deeper into the world of Afro-inspired electronic house which fits
perfectly on Freerange and should appeal to fans of Hyenah, Rancido and
the Keinemusik crew.

Title track Traces To Nowhere sets the tone, taking it’s roots from the
precision sonics and reduced approach of Berlin minimalism but infused
with a warm, organic sound palette, resulting in a deep and atmospheric
track which is powerful yet understated.

Flipping over we have Understand, another hypnotic mood-setter which
utilises a repeating vocal, percussion fills and a killer sub bass to
create a track which places all the emphasis on the paired-back groove and
subtle detail.

Rounding off the EP we have Suivre, a conga-heavy drum tool which mashes
up live jazz drumming with a driving kick and echoing vocal to great
effect. The sense of space makes this one a winner for changing things up
in the mix and sounds fearsome on a big system. Three lovingly crafted
tracks which bridge the gap between Berlin and Johannesburg, bringing a
fresh yet appealing sound to please dance floors worldwide.
