Freerange welcome another newcomer to the label. Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Dwson is starting to make major waves at home, as well as internationally. As a producer, Dwson is responsible for some of the deepest, speaker shaking slo-mo house on one of SA’s leading imprints Stay True Sounds as well as Germany’s Get Physical – and the impact of his track Luna helped push him further into the limelight and onto the radar of Jimpster, leading to the duo playing together at a Freerange event in Cape Town.
Kicking off the release, we have Bermuda, a track which lures you in with its understated, simple minimal beats and warm bassline. But don’t be fooled, this is a beast that grows into something far more powerful and dramatic as it patiently unfolds. Before we know it Dwson has unleashed a fizzing, subsonic lead line which builds through the drop bringing some serious drama to the party. Isolation comes next, a classic slice of South African deep house if ever there was one.
Dwson is a master of this style and knows exactly how to maximise the impact of each element as it oozes like honey from the sound system. Choosing a remix for this project was an easy one for us. When listening to the Dwson originals we’re reminded of the early releases of Manuel Tur in the mid 2000’s and thought it would be interesting to hear how he would flip a remix thirteen or so years on. We’re happy to say MT absolutely nailed it and has created an epic, dubby workout which calls to mind early Wave Music with its rolling bassline, immersive pads and percussive groove. The addition of a new vocal part adds icing on this already delicious and wholesome cake!
