Various – Twisted Artists Vol 2

February 22, 2013 in Albums

Twisted Artists Vol 2 GartenhausYou know what they say about women and buses*? Well, the same rules apply to deep house albums from Denmark, it seems! So our second collection of deep Danish vibes today comes from Gartenhaus.

It’s quite a different proposition from the DeepWit collection below, though. Where that one veers towards lounge/ambient territory, this one’s techier and more club-oriented; hell, Brown Sugar from Strung Fellows positively pounds along at a rip-roaring 127bpm! 😉 There’s more use of vocals, too, though said vocals tend to be of the spoken word or down-pitched variety, and almost exclusively male. If you looked at the two albums as a night out, then this would be the wonked-out 5am afterhours session, the DeepWit collection would be for when you get home and melt into the sofa afterwards.

I must admit, for me personally the down-pitched vox thing is getting quite old quite quickly, which is the only drawback here. Other than that though, with tracks from the likes of Dilby, Mr Leman, Thomas AS and Larsson, this is another album that’s well worth investigating.

Out: This week

About: You can find Gartenhaus on Soundcloud, on Facebook or at their own website.
