Finnebassen’s a sort of wild card. To begin it sounds like your stock standard deep house jam that could’ve come from anywhere between an early nineties Detroit boiler room to your stoner mate’s mp3 mixes that get neglected halfway through recording.
It’s simple, basic groove, that slowly becomes something more melodic and complex and if you’re paying attention you might just catch a hint of Bon Iver, or something equally wistful. That’s the problem with deep house gigs. People go as much for the name or the record label as the music, and they’re happy downing shots like the lone ranger at the bar and dancing nondescriptly like lethargic seaweed. Finnebassen makes deep house music that should be listened to. Norway seems to be growing as a prime exporter of house music, with Ted Terje and Cashmere Cat having made names for themselves across the globe. Finnebassen has released a number of bangin singles including the massively hip Nightshift and the pared-back but sleek, Baby. His sound could be one to listen out for if you have your wits about you.
