DT:Premiere | Whitespace - Aleatory [Emote Music] (incl. Q&A)

Emote Music label boss Whitespace, readies his latest EP for release next week. After we signed an EP to our very own DEAD CERT. Records it’s great to see Jacob continuing to make great beats.

Aleatory” has a strong sense of turmoil, set in with a broken beat and droning, moody synth-scapes that roar as the melody adds tension and suspense. A great opening track for those that like it a little darker and different.

Q&A with Whitespace

> 01. What was the thinking behind this track and did you achieve what you set out?
This was the first track where I used poly rhythms and I wanted to create something with that extra layer of evolution that you hear in the best techno today. I never achieve what I set out to do when I write a track and that is both a frustration and the motivation to keep pushing myself.

> 02. What tips and advice can you share to any producers on shaping their own sound?
I have thought a lot about this question and I would like to give a piece of advice I have never heard anyone else give. Master your own tracks. You might do a terrible job but that is not the point. By going through the process of mastering, you better understand how your mix can be improved. I think it is strange that mastering is the point where everyone says to hand your music off. When I master other people’s music my goal is to do as little as possible. When you are struggling with a master that is the time to go back to the mix.

> 03. What is your go to track at the moment by another artist?
I don’t DJ so I don’t really think in terms of tracks. I listen to DJ mixes all day at work and some of my favourite artists right now are Exium, Pfirter, Reeko, and NX1. There are a lot of amazing Spanish producers out there right now!
