Odette – Better Do It Right [VDK]
Dutch artist Odette returns to her vinyl-only venture VDK with “Better Do It Right”, bringing forward an original track and three pumping reinterpretations signed by Terry Francis, Brizman and Ollie Drummond. Founded in 2019, the label has so far delivered four intriguing records which rapidly captured the underground community’s attention and enjoyed massive support from well-known selectors and electronic music enthusiasts.
With various shades of house, techno or minimal being incorporated into her DJ sets, Odette is now an established artist living and working in Amsterdam. She surely knows how to pay tribute to the history of these genres and has released tracks with Bauns, Still Play Records, Deep Tech Records, Depth Over Distance, Saint and Don’t, Heisenberg, Stay Random Natasha, Moss Co., Kindisch and Margate, among other labels.
The original mix of “Better Do It Right” opens the release with classic dancefloor-ready percussion arrangements and uplifting energy. The track oozes sensuality and as the narrative evolves, the vocal elements take centre stage while the warm background pads create a resonant dimension. Following, Terry Francis drops a pure uptempo tech sound designed with a moody bottom end and hypnotic, skittering chirrups that can definitely take anyone’s selection up a notch.
Tel Aviv’s Brizman leads the charge on the flipside, 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. Ollie Drummond closes the 12″ with his swinging take on the original track, turning the energy back up and introducing a leftfield vibe courtesy of a growling synth swell and echo-laden shots.
