Brand New Unplayed
Notes: VDK returns for its fifth outing, bringing with it four pumping house brawlers jostling for your attention.
Vinyl-only VDK005 steps up to the platter with an original track by the renegade mistress herself, Odette.
Better Do It Right opens the release with Odette’s classic dancefloor ready percussion arrangements and glorious keywork. The track oozes sensuality; as the track evolves and its representation of day meets night, Odette’s vocal elements, delivered in a suitably brooding lilt, really take centre stage.
Terry Francis takes up the rest of the A-side, with a techier take on the original. Check out the moody bottom end and those hypnotic, skittering chirrups Francis brings to the mix. Definitely one to take your set up a notch.
Tel Aviv’s Brizman leads the charge on the flip, going for a softer approach to the remix. If you like your house with a low-slung minimal vibe, then this will be constantly in your rotation.
London’s own housemeister Ollie Drummond closes us out with his take on Odette’s track, turning the energy back up and introducing a leftfield vibe courtesy of a growling synth swell and echo-laden shots.
