If this compilation sounds familiar, there’s a reason: Plenty of these tracks have been flogged on many a dancefloor over the past year. That’s good for the overall quality, but U.K. label Freerange has also tossed in some exclusives to keep things fresh. What results is a solid window into the label’s aesthetic: deep-leaning, sunny-vibed house, with a full, big-room sound. That coherence is both a strength (Shur-I-Kan’s “Letting You Down,” Vincenzo’s techy “Shonen Jump,” Pezzner’s hypnotic “Almost Here Part 2”) and weakness, as the album unspools with relatively few surprises. Lack of spontaneity aside, White 06 should send fans of quality house music home happy.
