Some big news in the world of deep house this week, as a producer has broken the world record for depth of production, breaking the record set by Disclosure in the depths of their parents’ basement! All kidding aside though, we do have some big news in the form of an addition to our Dive Into The Deep posts: going forward, we’ll be including a handpicked mix or live set in addition to our usual five favorite tracks so you can get your body ready for the weekend. Now feel free to drown yourself in this week’s choice deep sounds.
Galcher Lustwerk – 216 (Original Mix) [Tsuba]
The Brooklyn deep house revelation takes a break from his White Material home to release this vinyl-only cut on Tsuba. The formula remains the same as his earlier output, all super-smooth vocals and slow-moving basslines, but when it’s this good, why should it change?
Jean Bressan feat. Valentina CX – Shapes (Original Mix) [Moan]
As deep as they come, it’s got a bassline like a wrecking ball–one of those tracks where you just put your head down and let your body loose.
El Prevost feat. D Ham – Allez Ally (Shonky Remix) [Third Ear]
You can always expect gold from the Apollonia trio of Dan Ghenacia, Shonky, and Dyed Soundorom, and this bit of acid-flecked funk is no exception. Take a whiff of those free trade coffee beans…
David August – Agatha (Original Mix) [Innervisions]
It was tough not to simply devote this post to the massive Innervisions package that just dropped, a quadruple EP set to celebrate their 50th release. Every track is a highlight, so I figured I’d go with one that hasn’t had as much play as the others (like Epikur, the track invading every single set right now). Can we give a new name to this whole orchestral house movement championed by Innervisions, Adriatique, Life & Death, et al? It’s basically Deep Trance, right?
Thomash – Calango Fumando Palha (Original Mix) [Multi Culti]
Perfect for those 8 a.m. post-club cool-down sessions. The entire Candomble EP from Thomash is a jungly delight, and we can’t wait to hear more from the young producer.
SET: Seth Troxler, Live @ Spybar
When Seth is on, he’s one of the best in the world, and this recent set from Spybar in Chicago shows why. The tracks are so varied but he makes it all sound incredibly fluid, with tons of hard-to-identify grooves that epitomize what deep house is really about–reaching deep into that record bag!
