The word Cleavage got a whole different meaning this year, when an Amsterdam producer-duo decided to name themselves exactly that. Their goal is to create music that everybody could go wild to, and so far they’ve pretty much nailed it. Incorporating dominating bass lines and sensual vocal hooks creates their very catchy and soulful house that has been heating up many an Amsterdam club for the last couple of months.
Just exactly who the boys behind Cleavage are, is all a bit shrouded in mystery. Not entirely unintentional, by the way. What we do know is that they both have had experience behind the decks as well as in the studio, having earned their stripes with earlier individual endeavours. With their current project Cleavage, however, they are really starting to get some well-deserved recognition.
It all started with their first release ‘My Body’, which featured the same vocal sample made famous by the Waze & Odyssey remix to R. Kelly’s ‘Bump ‘n Grind’. My Body isn’t as heavy on the soul as the latter, but mellow and extremely danceable. It was an immediate and sure-fire hit in the Netherlands this summer. Their following banger, ‘Prove’, fell nothing short of its predecessor, with a rich and luscious female vocal that aims straight for the heart and a drop that gives you the shivers.
I’m looking forward to see their progression over the course of the coming months, both in their performances and their work in the studio. But for now, take a little break on this dreary Monday afternoon, and let us show you a bit of Cleavage. Twice as a matter of fact..
