Review: Deniz Kurtel – Whispers

Artist: Deniz Kurtel
Title: Whispers
Label: Wolf & Lamb
Genre: Minimal/Tech House, Deep House
Format: Digital
Buy From: Juno Records, Juno Download

One of the labels of 2009, Wolf & Lamb has brought us retro-inspired gems from Jamie Jones and his side project with Lee Foss, Hot Natured, Seth Troxler and the effortlessly smooth Soul Clap. Now label owners Zev Eisenberg and Gadi Mizrahi have expanded their roster with the addition of Deniz Kurtel, one of electronic music’s rare female producers working on a breed of deep house and techno.

Her Whisper EP presents a threefold onslaught of subtly magnetic songs, where the title track features a floating melody interlaced with softly abstract vocals over a catchy bassline. “Fall” plays around a simple drum pattern and a dark breakdown whilst “Stop Trying” is a more complexly percussive piece.
