Dutch producer, Odette makes her debut on Kindisch with four varied, and indeed, well-crafted tunes that all deserve a spot on this month's house chart. But to pick one, it'll be "Big Love" which drives my aural senses crazy with a sultry spoken word and a beautiful, warm blanket of melody that really gets me going.
