Various Artists – HDV 002 [House Dessert Records]
House Dessert Records proudly presents its second vinyl pressing in the form of an amazing Various Artists compilation that elegantly explores various shades of house music, smoothly crafted by a talented team of producers. HDV 002 features label-head Artem Shpist alongside Volodya Borisov, Marshall Jefferson, Anton Kubikov, Ilya Abud and Alex Danilov, all dropping distinct yet organic and interconnected sounds. Based in the Russian Federation, the label was founded in 2019 with the aim to connect an international audience equally passionate about electronic music with the imprint’s distinct vision of house music by releasing artists with unique personalities and styles in both vinyl and digital formats (+ podcast series). The imprint also collaborated with Romanian producer Dirty Culture (Snacks EP / HDV001), SCSI-9, Sergey Sanchez, Plud and Dmitry Krylov. This 12″ counts as yet another great addition to their discography so let’s dive in and enjoy the tracks.
Side A opens with “The People Will Rise”, a collaborative composition between Artem Shpist, Volodya Borisov and Marshall Jefferson set to transmit a powerful message. Built around an inspiring vocal cut infused with revolutionary and spiritual energy, the steady-paced rhythm is complemented by hypnotic pads and textures, leading to an evolving narrative. Anton Kubikov‘s “Never Enough” follows with a classic dance vibe that subtly integrates acid notes and minimalistic arrangements while the rotating flow will make anyone start dancing in seconds.
The mysterious and groovy movements of “Spring Swing” by Ilya Abud open Side B with a deep sound perfect for dimly lighted dancefloors. Here, the swing of the drumming patterns and the balanced modulations of the bassline merge with all the other layers in order to create an eerie journey. “Unknown” by Alex Danilov explores a colourful downtempo dimension, closing the VA with a warm and mellow feeling. A highly recommended record right here for collectors and selectors alike!
