Various - The Sound Of Amsterdam Vol 1

Released last week to coincide with ADE 2010, this is the first label compilation from the excellent Dutch label 90watts. And, just in case you didn't know what to expect, it helpfully says "The city of tech-house" on the cover.

What you get, then, are 10 tuff, techy groovers from a whole bunch of names you've probably never heard of before… which is about as good as a label comp gets in my books! If you like it dark, heads-down and driving but still quantifiably house and still with the requisite sinewy funk, you'll be more than happy with this. Standouts for me include Philip Young Vs VMH's Oysters In The Basement and Angelo Donorio's bass-pulsing opener Kind Of Music.

Out: Last week. I did say this was a bit of a catch-up!

About: You can PREVIEW THIS ALBUM here, or find out more about 90watts generally here.
