Whitesquare – Aoyama Dawn EP – 20/20 Vision

Whitesquare’s unforgiving yet thoroughly pleasurable The Block opens out this new EP to all sorts of exciting possibilities. Fuelled by an in your face Detroit stab which informs the drum machines upon which it relies this startling production renders subtlety redundant. But then this so richly deserves to be played LOUD that you could be forgiven for doing so and on repeat. The appropriately named, Sound follows suit this time with an unnerving sequence of events that builds tension into an art form via rumbling low-end theory offset by unfussy percussion. Excellently remixed by Ralph Lawson & Rui-Z who proceed to strip it all down and then rework the pulsating rhythms applying fizzy electronics and a delicious heightened edge to the number.

Release: March 20
