These days house music is often about a 4/4 beat and a catchy groove. The idea is to do something simple to which you can get your groove and, and not so much about listening.
The borders of electronic dance music makes room for the hypnotic beats, the driving grooves, but not always the melodic universes.
Leman & Dieckmann have been making music for several years, both together and apart, but almost all of their music was driven mainly by the beat. But both having an urge to discover the dynamics of melodic synths and melodic percussion they decided to make an album.
They agreed that the album had to tell a story, and like so many times before in music the topic became love. The story they try to tell through the music on the album “Takes Two” is the story of a breakup, the denial of the need of love, and the discover of the fact that often in life it takes two, to be happy.
The album features the Swedish/Danish jazz singer TYRA on the groovy house track “Movement” and the percussion based balearic inspired track “The Meeting”. Also the title track “Takes Two” is featured by the Danish singer Ms. O, who, on top af beautifull Rhodes chords and minimal drums, manages to tell the story of sincerely need and unrequited love. “The Stranger”, a track about the autodidactic act of a onenight stand as a part of moving on, is featured by the very talented Danish singer Julie Christiansen.
The album, which consist of 10 original tracks, ranges from the deepest atmospheric Deep House to groovy Tech House to old-school trancy house. “Takes Two” defenately differs from the masses, and bring a breath of fresh air to the circulating sound of 2014 .
