Martin Iveson "Cobra XL" Atjazz Record Company (Official Music Video)

If you checked out Deeper Shades Of House show 460, you heard me play the Afefe Iku remix of this killer Deep House track by Martin Iveson aka Atjazz. Now you can check out the official music video of "Cobra XL", one of the two "original" versions by Martin.



Review of "Cobra", written by Liverpool's Phil Cooper
When I hear the term ‘Deep House’ these days it conjures up images of thin, monotonous grooves, vest wearing LADS and Southern fried Essex girls in some over-priced Ibiza club where in fact the only thing deep in this scenario is the K Hole that the aforementioned are likely to fall into…

This latest offering is from one of the UK’s leading exponents of the TRUE Deep sound, Martin Iveson AKA Atjazz. Remixed by the illusive Afefe Iku, this is a rhythmic journey into the exotic unknown.

Hypnotising conga rhythms and Kalimba loops provided by Gabrielle Poso work their way around the listener, enveloping them in a deep, textured organic groove before succumbing to the nagging vocal reframe that just keeps things moving with its cries of ‘deep black’ compiling to the whole incredible journey of warmth and audio radiance.






Traktor Kontrol S8 Is Coming. The Future Of DJing?

This video just popped up on one of my social timelines and I want to share with you what I just watched. I have been using Traktor for quite some time now and besides the Kontrol X1, I am relying on CDJs to be the main controllers. Native Instruments has been in the controller business for a while but I have not made the plunge into a CDJ or Turntable free world yet. Plus I really like my Vestax R-1 rotary mixer and don't see any fader heavy alternative replacing it anytime soon.

The Traktor Kontrol S4 has been out for quite some time while the S2 came out fairly recently and now you can get an idea what the new Native Instruments controller flagship S8 might look like!


Most noticeable in this video is probably the built in display, which would allow you to browse your collection, have a visual of the waveform (for looping etc.), and more without having to look at your computer at all. However, my excitement got pulled back to reality when I didn't see any platters (jogwheels) on the controller. That makes it a definite no for me to buy the S8. Personally I find it hard to mix with only buttons plus I'm too lazy to beatgrid everything only to rely on sync and I like to have somewhat of a "hands on feel" when playing music. Since all this is just speculation based on a minute long video, I can really only judge if I ever get my hands on an S8.

I'm sure by now you've noticed, that Native Instruments has a marketing team which knows how to get DJs excited about their new products. In this case NI opens the doors to their private launch event on Ibiza and spices up the video with statements and quotes by the likes of Luciano, Davide Squillace and Carl Craig.





Interview With Jus-Ed (Slices Feature Video)

German e-zine "Slices" by Electronic Beats is at it again. This time I'm excited to share a long format interview with Underground Quality's mastermind Jus-Ed who was invited to a paddle boat ride in scenic Berlin.

I love Jus-Ed's attitude towards family and friends and definitely share his sentiment about spreading knowledge.
Fun fact for my Deeper Shades Of House family: Jus-Ed is married to Jenifa Mayanja who runs her own label Bu-Mako.

    "I look at my job as a modern day traveling minstrel, to bring new music to as many places as I can, and expose obscure records that, otherwise, might go hidden." While Mark Farina may be able to sum up his job description in a sentence, there is much more to be written.

    Since 1989, Mark Farina has been traveling the globe performing at literally hundreds of shows a year, sometimes DJing both of his preferred styles in two different rooms at the same party. At other events, he's been known to play extended sets that lasted over eight hours. In his House sets, Mark is known for his uniquely effortless journeys on the jazzy side of Chicago House, mixed up San Fran style.

    This wandering record minstrel has played to incredible crowds all over the globe. Consistently drawing new fans to his style of chunky-funky rhythms and deep underground house, Mark plays upwards of 200 shows to over one million (1,000,000) club goers per year. Voted in the top 20 DJ's in the world by MUZIK and BPM Magazine, his taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned veterans as well as youngsters just getting into the music.

    FYI - Costumes aren't required but they it make it much more fun!
