Deep House Videos
And yet another video that popped up on my Facebook timeline. This time my friends from Freerange shared this cool video of Sven Weisemann adding live piano and vocal samples via vinyl to one of his tunes. Sven sent the video to the folks of Fact Magazine who added it to their YouTube channel. I really dig Sven's minimal approach to the music he produces and was lucky enough to have remixed his track "Slices" for Liebe*Detail a few years ago.
Someone just posted this 5 minute Osunlade feature on Facebook and I wanted to share it with my Deeper Shades family!
One of South Africa's most well known and loved (deep) house DJ's is Vinny Da Vinci and you may remember him from his guest mix on Deeper Shades Of House show #361. I've met Vinny during my first trip to South Africa in 2010 and he may well be my favorite South African DJ. He always plays flawless, soulful and deep sets and introduces brand new music to the hungry audience.
Check out this video profile in which he sports a Deeper Shades Of House T-Shirt. A few shirts with this design are still available for purchase in our online store.
Once again a Slices DVD mag feature and this time about a three member group, Chasing Kurt. You've heard their tracks on Deeper Shades Of House shows #347 and #398 from what I remember. This video answers questions about their approach to production, the importance of vocals in their music, and the always existing question about old or new.
Luciano was just in South Africa as part of the "Bridges For Music" movement and played alongside Black Coffee as well as Vinny Da Vinci and others. As you can see in the video, he also held some workshops and interacted with other musicians and DJs.
As a little cherry on top for all you Deeper Shades fans, check out the tune Luciano is playing during his "live scenes". It's Kenny Zarro's "Deep Abyss", out on Deeper Shades Recordings
The second episode in Russ Gabriel's "Profiles" micro documentary series takes us to Frankfurt and portraits jazz musician and electronic music producer, Matthias Vogt.
