Complex soundscapes turn to glitch, break then flow; psychedelic sound infusions leak straight to the brain. Whitebear has a particular addiction to mangling samples into twisted sounds, coupling and contrasting them with infectious arpeggiations, and finally setting the mood in stone with an earthy, groovy, bass. Of late, an organic, tribal influence is starting to emerge from the glitches, allowing the listener to tune in and vibe out on dance floor, stirring up something familiar and primal within, whilst revealing new environments. The listener is taken on a journey, but free to explore the vast expanse of intangible space between the frequencies and synapses. What happens in that space, in that darkness, is an immersive experience limited only by your own imagination.
Whitebear is the result of Arthur Song’s love of evolving soundscapes, groovy basslines and interesting sound design. The amalgamation of tribal and futuristic elements has presented new territory for Whitebear to explore, and Enig’matik Records has been the platform from which he has launched himself, head-first, into the beautifully complex world of electronic music.
Fresh off the festival circuit in Australia, Whitebear has had the honour to play the Eclipse 2012 Festival and feature on the bill alongside greats such as Kaminanda, Kalya Scintilla, Desert Dwellers, Bird of Prey, Gibson and many more. Whitebear’s music and performances are driven by the intention of self-exploration and expression, and is fuelled by the enticement of overwhelming and beautiful discoveries.
Whitebear has only just begun his journey, and is constantly learning and evolving- as one should.
