We have a fantastic dose of deep house for you with Craze & Codes’ just released collaboration. NYC based producer Codes has impressed us recently with the range and versatility of his releases. He has dabbled in moombahton, dubstep progressive and now has impressed us further by releasing this deep house gem. The aptly titled “Deeper” features a smooth melodic house groove layered over a classic deep house beat. If you’re looking to expand your iTunes library with some new music from different genres then this is definitely worth your time.
With his latest remix Sasha shows yet again why he is considered one of the all time greats of electronic music. With a series of complex series builds and breaks, Sasha’s rework is nothing short of an eight minute musical journey. His relaxed deep house melodic groove provides the perfect backing to Hot Chip’s signature vocals. Hit play only if you have the next few hours free as you’ll be playing this on repeat for the duration.
The Disclosure brothers are back with another track that demonstrates yet again why we are picking them out for major success. “Latch” is a beautifully melodic chill house track that treads a delicate line between garage and deep house. The track’s punchy bassline and airy melody are complemented perfectly by the soulful vocals of Sam Smith. It is quite a remarkable production, especially when you take into consideration that both of the brothers are still teenagers. Have a listen to the track below and stay tuned for the full release.
Jamie Jones and Seth Troxler — two of the most notable deep house producer/DJs around — come together to take over Pete Tong’s legendary Radio 1 show. Toping Resident Advisor’s Top 100 poll last year at #1 and #2, Jones and Troxler have been breathing new life into the soulful and unforgiving pastures of deep house. This amazing journey of music is a refreshing change of pace from what we’d normally post on DA, but shows what else the world of dance music has to offer. Giving their own commentary and playing their favorite tracks of the moment, this is a two hour mix we recommend you give a listen. Jump past the break for the full track list.
Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard is the latest artist to try his hand at remixing Disclosure. He adds his touches to “Control” and gives it a really chill /deep house feel. We’ve been hearing so much big room progressive house lately that Goddard’s remix makes for a lovely change of pace. Have a listen to the track on the soundcloud embed below and if you’re feeling it, head over to Beatport to grab yourselves a copy.
If you listened to Tiesto’s Club Life, Pete Tong’s Essential Selection or an Avicii set in the past few months, you’ve almost definitely heard Jupiter Ace’ massive track “Glowing In The Dark.” Well the house anthem undergoes some major makeovers in the remix package. With drum and bass, heavy electro and chilled out deep house, there is something for everyone. Click after the break to check out remixes from DC Breaks, Chooky & Screendeath.
Tommy Trash is known for his stunningly energetic productions and his (somehow) even more energetic performances. Well, Tommy has certainly changed that up with his brand new collaboration with Goodwill. “You Used Me” departs from the massive, anthemic progressive house that we’ve been hearing so much recently, and returns back to a more vintage and soulful house sound. Big synth stabs and housy chords combine perfectly with Ron Carroll’s incredible vocals. While we hope Tommy continues to put out productions in the style of his “Ladi Dadi” and “The Veldt” remixes, we also really, really enjoy this! No details on a release date yet.
Purchase: TBA (No Release Date Yet)
Update: Tommy let us know on Twitter that he isn’t actually involved with this release, even though the SoundCloud preview on Goodwill’s page still includes Tommy’s name… This post has been edited.
Those of you who follow us will know that we’re big fans of Jacques Lu Cont, the so-called Thin White Duke. Yesterday we brought you the British production genius’ latest effort, his remix of Coldplay’s “Charlie Brown.” Well luckily for those of you who enjoyed that, Jacques also debuted his first Essential Mix over the weekend. It is an absolutely brilliant mix that features tracks from some of our favorite house music legends including Depeche Mode, Felix Da Housecat, Étienne de Crécy, and, of course, Jacques himself. Click after the break for the full tracklist and make sure to keep an eye out for the Dada Life/Daft Punk bootleg!
Some of you will know Julio Bashmore from his huge track “Battle For Middle You,” and from his frequent appearances on Radio 1. He’s back with the debut release on his brand new label Broadwalk Records. “Au Seve” is a vintage Bashmore production, it’s funky deep house groove is incredibly infectious and makes for very easy listening. While big room progressive still dominates the headlines, “Au Seve” is a wonderful reminder of the vastness and diversity of the electronic music spectrum.
Our favorite bespectacled Brit is back with yet another masterful deep house thumper. ”Deck 9,” which follows in the footsteps of the stellar “Shinjuku,” is built on Funkagenda’s trademark throbbing bassline. In this case, the big-room beat provides a solid base upon which Funkagenda constructs a precise but catchy hook. The Funk Farm boss clearly understands that a track is like a house — without a sturdy foundation, everything else will collapse. “Deck 9″ features more trancey synths than we’d usually expect from Funkagenda, but the addition is a welcome one. We always appreciate it when an accomplished artist is willing to experiment with new sounds, and “Deck 9″ proves that Funkagenda has the producing chops to match his elegance behind the decks. Funky.
