Headset Hi-Fi: Volume 2 speaks to the journey that we have made since our first compilation, Headset Hi-Fi: Volume 1. Striving for a quality of production and an international variety of expression for multiple types of dancefloors and venues, we looked for sounds that were true to the foundation of our identity while challenging the status quo. Slovenian producer, J. Khobb kicks off the compilation with Meanwhile Underwater, a deep and techy house track with a presence that pulls you into its beckoning darkness and mystery. The striking percussion swims through a clicking techhouse metronome to reveal a thunderous bassline and an elegant melody. Once Again is from Luminer, the Italian duo of Andrea Martello and Giulio Spagnuolo. Infectious drums set a groove for icy strings that sound as though they were made in Detroit. A jazzy bassline evolves into a slow build that bends with filter modulation and raises the energy to a controlled pitch. South Africa's Vex Vexino returns to Headset Recordings with Years Of Famine, a patient track that strikes the chord of melodic melancholy that Vex Vexino has become known for. It shrouds the dancefloor and the listener in an achingly beautiful rapture of harmonic reflections. Years Of Famine is the type of track that stands out in a session and shows the mettle of a DJ.
