I’ve been picking up some great music over the last few months, so I thought it was time for another In Deep so the best of it can be savoured altogether in one long go. Most of this mix is deep house of various flavours. Vakula’s “New Romantic” is bubbly and meandering with subtle jazz licks. Leon Vynehall’s “I Get Mine, You Get Yours” is a much messier, rumpier affair, while Maxim Buldakov’s “Can You Feel It (Sasha Khizhnyakov Remix)” has a garagey vibe.
There’s also a bit of unicorn from Trackman Lafonte & Bonquiqui (which you might guess is Legowelt and Xosar in disguise), and something from the new release on Sheffield’s CPU Records by Mrs Jynx. “Dinner Dance” is a serene, futuristic affair that brings to mind both Larry Heard and Warp Records; bright, cool and polished.
My two favourites amongst this mix span entirely different generations. The Octo Octa remix of Gravious’ “Rolling Thunder” came out this October and is awash with warm bass and gorgeous synth sweeps. Clickety beats add the bounce. Go back a full twenty five years and A Guy Called Gerald, Edward Barton and Chapter And The Verse got together as “Us” to produce “Born in the North”, a menacing and defiant slice of acid house with the haunting female vocals “I was born in the North, and I live in the North, and I’ll die in the North…”. I first came across it on Legowelt’s Ten years of Squadron mix and immediately fell in love. Yet another amazing piece of music I have Legowelt to thank for.
