Danish house label supreme What Happens reach their 100th release milestone this week, and to celebrate, they are releasing an exclusive collection of tracks from label regulars and a couple of brand new signings. With music ranging from tech house to deep house, the album covers the deeper shades of underground house music. And boy does it deliver! Founded in 2007, Tim Andresens’ indie label but has grown substantially. And with a highly successful monthly club night at Scandinavia’s leading club Culture Box, events at clubs across Europe and an ever growing platform for talented artists they show no signs of slowing down!
First up is label head and uber producer Tim Andresen with One Hundred. As with many of Tims productions the beats are crisp, the percussion razor sharp and tightly controlled. The melodies and pads are sent from heaven itself and place Tim firmly in the upper echelons of House producers. Indeed as we head through the tracks one by one, each is delightfully playful and resolutely deep and underground. Highlights for me personally are Big Al with ‘Paradiso’, a delicate track full of interconnecting pads and synths, Joe Sweetname’s ode to 90s Deep House; the cryptically named Banksters, and the bumpy bump of label heavyweight QMUSSE with Rock da House.
A thoroughly engaging package from the deeper side of things which shows Tim Andresen to be right on the pulse of quality underground house. Buy this TODAY!
