This one came courtesy of one of my colleagues at work. Since then I have not stopped playing their stuff, and this track, Bad Weather Mates, is probably one of my favourites. Session Victim are a house-music duo formed in 2007 in Germany by Hauke Freer and Matthias Reiling. Known for their vinyl-only DJ sets and synthesiser-based live shows, they have released four studio albums with the latest one, Needledrop, released in 2020. They always construct the drums on their music from scratch and avoid digital drum libraries which gives their sound a craftsman’s-like quality. But it is the grooves and the sweet vibes that really push this music into the sublime. Be sure to put them on your playlist at your next party and watch the enquiries come pouring in.
