Deep House Videos
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.
The third part of "On The Road With Black Coffee" takes us to Sugar Factory in Amsterdam, Netherlands as well as the Pulse Club and Opo Lounge in Portugal.
Hans Thalau is a name the fans of Deeper Shades Of House have heard more and more in the last two years as I have been playing his productions released on his own imprint Thal Communications. You also got to learn about his music selection and DJing when he delivered a proper guest mix for Deeper Shades Of House show 407.
The video below is the first micro documentary in the "Profiles" series, directed and shot by Russ Gabriel and shows Hans in action in his studio as well as in the club.
Part 2 of On The Road With Black Coffee follows the South African house music super star to his gigs at legendary Djoon in Paris, France as well as the International Promoter Meeting 2012 in Rome, Italy together with Manoo and Rocco.
