Deep House Videos
A lot of you ask me about how I use certain effects when I play in clubs or record my mixes for Deeper Shades Of House in my studio, so when I just came across this video I thought it'd be a good start to familiarize you with some of the basics which already make a huge difference in your DJ sets.
The unit used and talked about in this video is an ISO Q2 isolator designed by Shorty from SBS Designs who is also the one demonstrating the different "moves". An isolator is one tool I'm using if it is available in the club, while here at home I have one built into my rotary mixer Vestax R-1 and in addition use the Electrix EQ-Killer to have extra control on every separate channel plus it allows me to sweep the frequencies just as you can hear it done in the video.
The Deeper Shades Of House fans among you know about my love and fascination for music coming out of Detroit. Check out this in depth feature of one of my favorite DJ's, Theo Parrish in the latest edition of German DVD magazine SLICES.
A very inspiring view on DJing, production, tools, machines and passion for vinyl.
Oh, we'll be there .. I was lucky enough to check out this party two years ago and even though I hadn't been on skates for over 15 years or so I couldn't help it and had the time of my life! If you'll be in Detroit for the DEMF / The Festival or whatever it's called this year, this event is highly recommended and will be like nothing you've been part of before.

DJ Harvey, AKA Harvey Bassett, is one of the world's most famous cult DJs and producers of deep esoteric dancefloor music.
Famed the world over for his eclectic sets and masterful use of rare musical gems, DJ Harvey has the ability to speak to the dance floor through the records he plays.
Hailing from Cambridge in England, Harvey now resides at Venice Beach in LA where he surfs and takes time out from his hectic global DJ schedule.
Basement Sessions travelled to the City Of Angels to meet with the legendary DJ at Mophonics studios in the heart of Venice Beach. We talk about his formative years in the UK, his era defining club nights Moist and SarcasticDisco, his introduction to NYC and Hip Hop culture, approaches to production and his friendship with seminal New York DJ, Larry Levan. We also discuss his trashing of a priceless Bozak mixer at a recent festival appearance, his potential return to the UK after 10 years and the making of his recent Locussolus album.
AllSaints Basements Sessions is pleased to present the definitive DJ Harvey interview.
Their name says it all - Masters At Work. 'Little' Louie Vega and Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez celebrate 20 years together, channeling dance music down new paths with their inventive production style and imaginative feel for different musical forms. The two native New Yorkers have amassed an overwhelming body of work including hundreds of original productions and defiantly mix everything they can find - house, hip hop, funk, disco, Latin, African and jazz - into a universal groove. XLR8R's Shawn Reynaldo sits down with them on the couch during Red Bull Music Academy's 'New York City to SF Bay' lecture series in San Francisco to discuss the start of their careers and dissolving the barriers between genres.
