Name/age is Maurice and Diego from Rome who are dedicated DJ´s and designer. Maurice is the one behind Whitesquare musical project released on Skint rec, Defected, Ministry of Sound, Noir and more. Diego is the founder of 5preview, a well known international fashion brand.
With Name/age they want to explore the deepest and most radical music border between electronics and new experimental pop. The target is to twist the sound into a kind of vortex of music without interruption focusing on the feeling of picked up sounds from various genres... techno, house, hip hop, soundtracks. After an intense one year studio sessions, they have now finished the first EP called "Us Apart" released on our label MBF LTD.
The release opens with "Running Slow" which according to the title is a super deep introspective but driving deep house tune that ventures to dip into the experimental and daring and returns to a dead funky beat programming. The acoustic feeling of the track prevails and keeps the lush and soulful side of the track attractive for lovers of the genre.
"Separate" with its massive drum section carries a beautiful lingering synth melody which fades in and out, performing different dynamics of energy level with style.
The break down at halftime is done with a lot of understanding for the deeper moments in house music and will be remembered. "When It Come To An End" is a happy/sad-tune that keeps the understatement and fluidly changes perspectives and manifest itself through different emotional states. It acts in waves and is a perfect last track for Name /age’s EP on MBF LTD.
