Ralf Gum feat. Monique Bingham "The Pap" GOGO Music (Official Music Video)

Ralf Gum's newest album "In My City" went #1 in the South African iTunes store and the second single co-produced by Raw Artistic Soul and featuring Monique Bingham is now taking over the world. "The Pap" is currently charted by 73 DJs on Traxsource alone and I can't get enough of it. The simplicity of the instrumental with its sweet chords and hypnotic beat is perfectly completed by Monique Bingham's impeccable lyrics and vocal performance. The video is especially fun to watch since it's mostly filmed at DJ Christos' own Shaguma Cafe where I have spent quite some time since the beginning of my DJ travels to South Africa in 2010 plus I can spot quite a few cameos of friends and South African House Music royalty, like Christos, Dino Michaels, Themba, Zero, Matsobane, DJ Fresh, Just Mo and many more.

I am super happy for Ralf who is such a hard worker and good hearted person and proud to be friends with him for many years, going back all the way to Records Of Interest and Global House Connection times.

Theo Parrish is no stranger to Deeper Shades Of House fans and frequent visitors of the website as well. German Electronic Beats TV released a feature as part of their Slices series back in August, visiting Theo at the Pitch Festival in Amsterdam, where his live band show "Teddy’s Get Down" made a stop.

Backed by musicians like Amp Fiddler, Akwasi Mensah, Duminie DePorres and Myele Manzanza, Theo Parrish adapted several of his Sound Signature releases for the concert stage.

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.

Free Download - Lars Behrenroth "Within Reason"


For Limited Time Only!

It's been a while since I offered a free download of one of my own tracks and thought to myself it would be a great way to introduce the brand new and updated Deeper Shades website. This particular track "Within Reason" was released on vinyl as part of my Election EP on German deep house label Auris Recordings back in 2004.
