Free Download - The Weeknd "Earned It (Lars Behrenroth Dark Edit)"


Limited Time Only (no longer available)!

THIS DOWNLOAD IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. Please check out #DeeperShadesDownloadTuesdays for more free music.

My wife and her friend pointed out the original of this tune to me before it even turned into a hit on the "50 Shades Of Grey" soundtrack and I thought there's potential to make it 'housey' ..

I tried a few things and what you can hear, stuck .. The Weeknd "Earned It (Lars Behrenroth Dark Edit)"
Simple, dirty and quick .. Not quite a remix, more an edit w/ an added kick drum and bassline.

A few of my DJ friends and myself have been playing it since WMC Miami and now you can, too! I hear it gets some nice reactions all over the world.

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.

Website Update In Progress

You may have heard me talk about the update of the Deeper Shades website on my show or seen the occasional status update about it on one of the social networks.

This update to the latest version of Joomla (the CMS I am using for this site) is now imminent and should ideally have been completed in the next few days! The site will finally be fully mobile compatible and overall everything will run smoother.

To make things a bit easier for my developers, I have now turned off any new account creation and probably will not post anything new until the new site has replaced this current one.

I am hoping for a smooth transition and a glitchfree move to the updated site and look forward to hear what you think about it ... 

Keep it deep,
Lars Behrenroth
