Beginning Sunday, January 25th you can hear Lars Behrenroth's radio show Deeper Shades Of House every week from 17.00 to 19.00 on CUT FM 105.8 in Bloemfontein, capital city of the Free State Province of South Africa.
The Central University of Technology`s radio station just began broadcasting on January 19th and decided to carry Deeper Shades Of House from their very beginnings.
CUT FM is licensed to broadcast up to 150 km around Bloemfontein. See the map below to find out if you could potentially receive the FM signal, and please let me know in the comments if you are able to listen to the station.

I hope you are celebrating and ringing in the new year amongst friends and family. We are and you can be part of it!
Once we get our house party going (sometime after 8pm here in California), you can join us via live stream.
Some of you might already have received my Holiday newsletter with direct links to four free downloads. The reception was so overwhelming that the host disabled my public links due to too much traffic :)
Soooo, I can't stand for that and uploaded the same tunes to some other places for you to download .. Enjoy and don't forget, be safe, don't drink and drive, keep it deep and whatever you do, DON'T LET YOUR FRIENDS LISTEN TO BAD MUSIC.

Spirit Wrestlers (a label by DiY Discs DJ, Pete Woosh, one half of Digs & Woosh) just made this free download available to wish everyone a happy christmas. "Holy Mountain (Procession Mix)" is a beautiful, deep and unreleased track by PJ Principle who you might also know as Peej.
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 deepershades.net 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.
You've been hearing his name more and more on several Deeper Shades Of House shows and even beyond his (Deep) House productions, I'm a huge fan of his music. The German Electronic Beats TV now features him in their latest Slices New Faces edition. Get into the mind of Berlin producer and vinyl lover Max Graef and learn more about his approach to music production.
