Maxi Valvona – You Gave Me Everything EP

Maxi Valvona You Gave Me Everything EP What Happens!
There was a point this summer when What Happens! seemed to be releasing top-drawer deep and tech house nuggets on a weekly basis. Of late the release schedule seems to have slowed down a little, but I'm pleased to report there's been no drop in quality.

In its Original form, You Gave Me Everything itself is a chuggy, near-instrumental groover (it's instrumental if you don't count the abstract, voice-as-instrument sounds dotted throughout), with quite tuff beats but an otherwise dreamy, driftaway kinda feel. Label boss and long-time friend of TIWWD Tim Andresen supplies the obligatory remix, which is even more floaty and adds another vocal loop to keep the first one happy, but otherwise isn't HUGELY different, while rounding out the EP is The Floor Is Yours. A tad more upbeat, this latter is also a bit more on the 'accessible' side, what with its pulsing two-note bass riff, and looping male vocal… but thankfully, it's accessible without straying into the realm of cheese.

Like I said, no drop in What Happens!'s usual high quality standards here!

Out: This week

About: You can find What Happens! on Facebook or at their own website. Visit the latter to check out their latest podcast, from Norwegian tech-house starlet Tina V, and marvel at the fact that they seem to have quietly mastered the science of time travel… being as it was apparently posted on October 28 and all.
