Its a universal truth that sometimes we all need a little time out. But time away from the coal face doesnt necessarily mean putting your feet up, and though Sheffield house master Squarehead has taken a break from the release schedule of late, hes remained hard at work in the studio.
Squarehead is back, this time as ES.Q. And not only does he have a gleaming new name, he also has a freshened-up sound after months in the studio perfecting a crisp new audio signature. His new release Tail Winds / Workin' Hard Or Hardly Workin', features two fearsome cuts that are set to wreak havoc across dancefloors.
Tail Winds is a whirlwind of clipped vocal snippets and relentless drums that build an initially air-whipped techy house tune into a track of raw intensity.
Over on the flip is Workin' Hard or Hardly Workin', a plaintive vocal refrain wrapped round a thudding and irresistible groove.
If ES.Q is an alter ego of Squarehead, the latter is also sometimes known as young house aficionado Oliver Ledger. He retains the thrill and sparkle that gives dance music its inexplicable power over mind and body - so keep your ears on ES.Q and feel the music blowing through your soul. [txt from ]
