Oddvar - For Lovers EP

I've not come across Oddvar before, but then apparently he's a young German producer who's made his name on the minimal scene thus far, so that's hardly surprising. At any rate, this is his latest and it's not a minimal affair at all, but rather a four-track EP of some rather pleasing house music. Slave To The Bar has slight nods to old skool Chicago, while Without You – the standout for me by far – has some nice organ sounds and a kind of leftfield garage feel. Love Me and (Jens Bond collab) The Secret, meanwhile, are just nice looping club grooves.

I dunno, it's quite a hard EP to describe, I'm finding. But it's also quite good, with fat basslines and crisp beats a-plenty, so why don't you head to the label's MySpace and HEAR IT YOURSELF (well, two tracks of it anyway)?

About the label: This is on Sportclub Music, a label I don't know anything about except they're German and part of the Kompakt family. And once again, here's their MySpace.
