Fresh talent flying under the radar, that's what Deeper Shades Recordings is currently standing for. This time around we found a singer / songwriter from South Africa who will make it far with his unique approach and voice.

Nathan X is a young South African producer/dj/remixer/vocalist, who has been in the music industry for 4 years. He fell in love with the craft while still in high school and started teaching himself how to produce.
His sound has been influenced by the likes of Lars Behrenroth, Louie Vega, Boddhi Satva, Manoo, Kerri Chandler, Abicah Soul, Osunlade, Black Coffee and his life long friend Deejay Cuebur. The latter was also his production partner for this release 'So Far Away' which is essentially a ballad combined with a driving, shuffled afro inspired deep house beat and a killer bassline.

Label owner Lars Behrenroth is back on remix duties to prepare the vocal for the rhythmically straighter dancefloors while Brazilian producers & remixers Nomumbah deliver a vocally stripped version which reminds us  of early 90's tunes you just can't pass up.



What Others Have To Say:

    "Great package! Fellin both Lars Behrenroth Remix and the original mix. Deep quality as always from one of my fave house labels :)"

    "very nice! Lars´s mix is my fav. Will play for sure."
    Henri Kohn (Conya)

    "Amazing. The original b-line has that right-but-wrong timing, like all kinds of people from IG Culture to Sa-Ra do, but no one really does in house music. It's Legba's limp. It's Dilla's swing. It's Nathan X. Heavy.... The remixes are wicked too, Lars and Nomumbah both, but yeah I can hear why you signed this. Dude's dope."
    Bobstar (Restless Soul, Soulheaven)

This track is so deep, so sexy, I almost had a coronary when I first heard it. Massive respect to the producers, showing off SA talent like never before. It's time the rest of the world got a taste of the amazing tunes coming out of this region of the world, and Thank You Lars for giving us the medium to do that.
