The unique sounds of Whitesquare have been making waves on dance floors across the globe for a while now. With his stellar releases on 20/20 vision being hammered by all the key players from Maya Jane Coles to Damian Lazarus, it seemed only a matter of time before he launched his own imprint Lyase Recordings, which he runs with fellow producer NT89.
The quality from the label from the outset has been relentless, and the third release is no exception, with label boss Whitesquare taking the reins to deliver two outstanding cuts of deep, melodic techno, with stellar remixes from Ian Belvins and Dar Shirazi.

Heartbeat takes out all of the most harmonic feel, with old string pads and raw percussion sounds, a real trip.
Last seen, already strong in a few dj bags, has a more Detroit feel to it, with old synth and a groovy, yet sophisticated bassline, it sends any dancefloor to a melancholic voyage.
UK producer Ian Belvins gives Heartbeat a more techno-ish sound, a perfect remix for the first morning lights.
Label honcho NT89 with his Dar Shirazi moniker remixes Last Seen, approaching the original with a more clubby and deep techno vibe, an outstanding rework for the peak time sets.
