Various Artists Oslo Sessions
- Words: June Joseph
- Label: Taster's Choice
Places like Finland, Estonia and Norway may not seem like hotbeds for club music, but acts like Rulers of the Deep, Nuspirit Helskini and Bermuda Triangle have done a lot to refute that theory in recent years. On Oslo Sessions, Norway's DJ Whale mixes up fare from new-school Scandinavia with considerable skill. However, the compilation gets off to a sluggish start, becoming briefly more interesting with the inclusion of Tony Thomas' stormer "Darker" before veering quickly back to the obvious. Ultimately, Oslo Sessions appeals to a self-aggrandizing, big-room sensibility that only suits certain moods.
