Lars Behrenroth Rocking Ecuador

{xtypo_dropcap}E{/xtypo_dropcap}cuador, I'm loving it.
My wife and I already got here a few weeks ago and it's beautiful. The weather is great, the people are nice and everyday feels like a real vacation including swimming in the pool, working out, sleeping whenever necessary and eating very well.

But what would travelling be if I wouldn't DJ anywhere. I DJ'ed two gigs in Guayaquil already (you might have seen the info in the upcoming event section) and let me tell you, people here like their music underground and deep (with a techy twist). The pictures are downloading to my computer right now and I'll post 'em when I get around to it (remember.. it's a vacation :)

Tomorrow Dec 22nd we'll be driving or flying to Quito since I have a gig there and then on the 29th it's off to Montanita where I'm DJing right by the beach. More info in the 'Lars Behrenroth upcoming DJ gigs section' . I'll make sure we'll take pictures and maybe even some video footage there as well.

Alright . off to the gym ..




 

Juju & Jordash - Time Slip - Music Video

Juju & Jordash - Time Slip{xtypo_dropcap}J{/xtypo_dropcap}uju & Jordash are two very talented Deep House producers whose hometurf you'd expect to be Detroit rather than the Netherlands.
Their new 'Time Slip EP' is dropping soon on the british Real Soon label. This will be their second outing on this imprint after the Blue Plates EP. I've been bangin' (if you can call it that with tracks ranging from 101 to 108bpm) both tracks of this upcoming EP during the earlier parts of my sets and each time I hear them, they're sending me somewhere else.

Now they're doing what many more Deep House producers need to do - they've introduced a video for the title track of the EP, directed and edited by Finnish clip director Gnowp Ants.






Find out more about Juju & Jordash on their website and their MySpace profile.

Deeper Shades Of House Podcast Reaches Over 100,000 Downloads


{xtypo_dropcap}M{/xtypo_dropcap}any of you frequent visitors of deepershades.net and avid listeners of my radio show Deeper Shades of House helped me reach yet another magic mark. A few days ago, on October 3rd 2007 to be exact, the Deeper Shades of House Podcast reached over 100,000 downloads since I started making it available on November 14th 2006. This number is according to my statistics at feedburner.com (a service that allows keeping track of your podcasts and other RSS feeds) ONLY INCLUDES ACTUAL PODCAST DOWNLOADS. Not counted are the many many downloads directly from the site deepershades.net.

Deeper Shades of House Podcast 100.000th download - Feedburner Screenshot


This screenshot above shows the number of downloads as well as the top 5 shows downloaded. Deeper Shades of House show #185 leads the chart of Item Popularity with 3159 downloads. I know someone blogged about it somewhere :) . . . Followed closely by the 2nd hour of Classic House Special DSoH #200 and so forth. The additional views and clicks in this screenshot show how many people clicked back to the site from the podcast (via Itunes or other podcatchers). Since I redesigned my site those numbers have gone up dramatically and I am sure the possibility to download the guestmixes / 2nd hour of each show is helping as well.

So, if you haven't subscribed to the podcast yet, why don't you consider taking advantage of having the newest shows downloaded automatically to your computer once I uploaded them to the server.


THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH for enjoying what I do and for spreading the word. I know that a lot of people find their way to this site because music lovers like you told them about Deeper Shades of House.


Steve 'Silk' Hurley - "Jack Your Body" Video

Steve Silk Hurley - Jack Your Body{xtypo_dropcap}T{/xtypo_dropcap}his song and its video are mostly responsible for me getting into house music. In Germany and the UK "Jack Your Body" produced by Steve 'Silk' Hurley and originally released in 1986 on the 'DJ International' sublabel 'Underground' from Chicago actually made it in the charts and it was played all over the radio. The European major label which licensed this song put together a video using old jazz dance snippets and some cheap computer animation (back in the days actually pretty fresh). I remember seeing this video on many different TV stations.

{flv}JackYourBody{/flv}


To this day I drop this record from time to time and I see faces who know and I see faces who just think 'what's this jam?' As always, more info on the song can be found on discogs.com

You can also hear two versions of this song in my Deeper Shades of House show #150 Classic House Special - 1st hour.


Could It Be Any More True?


My wife Kat just sent this to me via StumbleUpon and our reaction was exactly the same.
'This is soooo like us' :) but luckily in addition we both get out on the weekends when I DJ.

Shaun Escoffery - Days Like This (Live on MTV)

Shaun Escoffery - Days Like ThisLive version video of this amazing song performed on MTV (Europe is my guess??) by Shaun Escoffery and band. 'Days Like This' is one of the greatest tunes you can hear on a deep house floor when that magical moment is in the air. If you have been to any of the Shelter parties during the recent WMCs you know what I am talking about. A big scream and EVERYONE... starts singing along. DJ Spinna definitely worked his magic when he remixed it for Oyster Music in 2001.

Personally, I've become very selective when it comes to picking the right moment to drop this song in a club. It really has to be one of THOSE nights. And when it is, well :) ...read above. 

This live version takes the song to another level (if possible). When I saw it on YouTube it put a huge smile on my face. Check out the video of the great performance by Shaun and his band below. Adrian from Oyster Music posted this and many other Shaun Escofferey videos. This link takes you to his YouTube profile where you can watch the other videos.


I really wish there's a full release of this live version coming sometime soon. Maybe even a whole live album.


Enjoy the video,
lb.
