Amsterdam’s Spoetnik is best described as a purveyor of undeniable groove.
The artistic project of the city’s club shelter staple, the sound of Spoetnik draws its influence from across the musical spectrum – from dubby and rousing, to tribalesque and organ-churning house. Think of it as a tour the best of classic-era House has to offer from late eighties to early nineties New York, mixed with classic Chicago house and more contemporary Detroit work.
On this exclusive mix, the 300th (!) on DHA, of rare and hard to find gems, Spoetnik gives all you crate diggers a starting point, describing it as:
