Hailing from the industrial city of Sheffield, the young Squarehead emerged onto the house scene in the winter of 2012 with a brilliant 2 track EP on his own label 5 And Seven. This was soon followed by 'Harlem Ache' on Manucci's Mistress which quickly became a modern classic and his most popular release to date. But it was his appearance on Wolf Music with 'Be Without', an absolutely divine house track that is a pillar of every Move D set from the past year, that pushed Oliver Ledger to the forefront of the scene.
March 2014 sees Squarehead's latest masterpiece come to life on none other than Ney York's finest Let's Play House and it's one of his most outstanding works so far. Starting with an 80's infused moog line, 'Dead Reyt' gets all emotional with its looped vocal drops, mesmerising synth pads and on the point melodies which infuse the track with a nostalgic atmospheric feel, better experience at post-peak time key moments. 'Got2Know' is up next and brings a joyful twist to the speakers with its lovely uplifting female vocals, while the happy summery piano line and syncopated finger snapping add more and more good vibe with each minute spent into the track.
On the flipside 'Vishen takes' the atmospheric summery feel to a whole new level by making a clever arrangement of distant synth stabs, surreal hypnotic pads all underlined by a fat rhythmic bass line topped from time to time by an elusive collection of fills, claps and hats. Ending the 12" experience is 'Someday', a perfect summer set ender that keeps your body moving courtesy of the large bass and punchy kick ensemble and drives your mind into an exotic euphoria guided by the tropical metallic drums and warm bleeps.
Squarehead does it once again and successfully delivers an essential piece of modern house for us to own, play and enjoy.
