Lars, you are the man! Thank you so much.

I voted today and I'm so hopeful Obama will win. The last few years have been tough for us Americans and I hope that this is the beginning of better times ahead.

Thanks a gazillion.

P.S. It's great to see so many people from around the world so in tuned to our election. That just blows my mind.

What an exciting day it was. I'm really happy to have been able to do my part even without being able to vote.

Thank you to everyone who dropped in to download "Now Is The Time" and for spreading the word. Maybe we have not only spread the message in the song, but won some new deep house lovers on the way.

The free download is now disabled but the song is still available for purchase on, and of course right here on for only us$1.39

Thank you also for all the kind comments and all of your engagement, let's keep that going :)

Deeper Shades of House Now On Your iPhone

DSOH on iPhones{xtypo_dropcap}A{/xtypo_dropcap} few of you might have already discovered the new link right underneath the LISTEN NOW button, suggesting iPhone users to click if they want to listen to the show.

When I finally got my iPhone a few weeks ago, I realized that with the missing flash player it was almost impossible to listen to the Deeper Shades of House show just by visiting
Of course you could subscribe to the DSoH podcast, have iTunes sync with your iPhone and then listen to the show using the iPod player, but I wanted something a bit more immediate and something which also allowed new visitors to the site to get a taste of the show right away.

For that reason I created a simple, fast loading page which allows anyone with an iPhone to listen to anyone of the listed shows and stream it using wi-fi, 3G and even the Edge network (the latter is quite slow as you might know, so I don't really suggest it). Simply point your iPhone to and click on the desired show.

In addition I also created a phonenumber for you to call to leave comments, suggestions and shout outs. Click on the number and the iPhone will dial it for you. This phonenumber is naturally available for all of you to use, iPhone owner or not. Feel free to leave a message at +1 (419) 844-6217.

If you own another type of smartphone, please let me know if you're able to stream the show using the same page, or - if you can - provide me with some more information about how I could enable you to listen to the show on your phone.{mos_fb_discuss:6}

Hi Lars,

Great shows man!
It's been a long time I heard good deep house music anywhere.. Was missing it badly!
And as a result I'm stripping your site so that I can get going for a while :laugh:

Also have an iphone here.. and to that regards.. I strip all the mp3 info to get the shownumber first in the title and the dj name also first in the artist label..

perhaps an idea to implement this for good viewing on smaller screens (iphone-ipod etc)?

Keep up the good music!

Greetings from the Netherlands,

thank you ..

yeah.. I have the number and part first before the name on the downloadable mp3's from this site. I have to change a setting to have the same names for the podcast and iPhone stream.


Download The First DSOH Wallpaper

This is the first batch of Deeper Shades of House wallpapers for your computer and / or your iPhone.
1024x768 | 1280x1024 | 1440x900 (Macbook Pro) | 320x480 (iPhone) <- select your size and save as..
first Deeper Shades of House wallpaper
It'd be boring to just post the links to the wallpapers so I give you a bit of background of how edition #1 came about.

Kathy - for those who still don't know, my wife and creative brain behind most artwork and images you see on and Deeper Shades Recordings - discovered, a web app that creates pretty cool images based on text used in RSS feeds.
After playing around with it a bit, I posted my first result via my Twitter and my buddy @mika73 suggested it'd make a pretty cool wallpaper. I didn't wanna blow it up in size because it would be quite blurry so he hinted that I should just create different size images with a black background and copy the wordle image in the center of it. Simple and easy and the first sizes (1280x1024 and 1024x768) were completed. Another Twitter buddy @we5 sent me 2 more sizes (320x480 for the iPhone and 1440x900 for Macbook Pro's) after I posted the previous ones and here we are.

The first Deeper Shades of House wallpaper generated out of the text included in the podcast RSS in four different resolutions. These are completely free downloads for you, so get 'em, put 'em on your machines and send 'em to your friends who dig Deeper Shades of House as much as you do. :) ..

Welcome South Africa

{xtypo_dropcap}I{/xtypo_dropcap}n the last two weeks the second highest amount of vistitors to has come from South Africa. More and more people from Johannesburg, Auckland Park, Pretoria, Durban and 44 other cities stopped by to check out the show 'Deeper Shades of House' or the label 'Deeper Shades Recordings'. Thank you to those who have also written me emails and very nice messages on MySpace and Facebook and joined my Deeper Shades of House Facebook group.

I figured why not say "hello South Africa", welcome to and thank you for listening. The plan is to spotlight more countries like this in the next few months. visitors from South Africa
This image shows you the 'hot' parts of the country. The highest number of visitors ( 305 ) came from Johannesburg.

If you feel like it, let me know what city / country / continent you represent in the comments.

Deeper Shades Of House Podcast Reaches Over 100,000 Downloads

{xtypo_dropcap}M{/xtypo_dropcap}any of you frequent visitors of 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 (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

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.
