I literally discovered this artist today and I must say, I am loving what I've heard. Great funky, deep and soulful House from this production team. I first heard "Brother (Original Vibe)" and have been pulled further into their work with every subsequent song. They're truly deserving of their status in the House scene. Some sources state that the group has since split up, and if so, then that's a crying shame. Modern-day producers could stand to learn a thing or two from the amazing Needs.

The Needs crew hailing from Frankfurt,Germany are a huge breath of fresh air to the house scene worldwide.Anticipation is one word to use for when the next release is going to happen! In my opinion these guys are the hottest property within the house scene in the last five years,as i have yet to be dissapointed with one single release.PROPER MUSIC with soul,feeling and thought.So far so fabulous and believe me these guys have better to come,i recommend checking out Lars Bartkuhn and his Passion Dance Orchestra album Dreamland due for release later this year.It gets a 5/5 rating from me,its AMAZING
