    Check the NY garage thread below, much of it is crossover deep house. Obvious names to check out are Mr Fingers (Larry Heard), Kerry Chandler, Chez Damier, Basic Channel (Main Street) made two of the best deep house tracks ever in Round One & Two, Ron Trent, Moodymann (Kenny Dixon jr), Derek Carter, Glenn Underground --

    The prominent newish producers are probably Omar-S, Henrik Schwarz, Mike Huckaby - though most of his recent stuff is probably 'dub techno'. FHXE for Omar-S Detroit, Jus-Ed's Underground Quality, Third Ear for Detroit Beatdown... Mojuba is another good label to check, much of it minimal/dubby. Though there seems to be a lot of 'deep house' coming from the mnml scene atm, not much of which sounds very deep at all to me... Deepness being such a subjective thing after all.

    Many people think being nondescript and inoffensive is the key to being deep, but I disagree. Anyway, I think the deep house was originally used to describe the more soulful, songful, spiritual Chicago house opposed to the faceless, technoid jack & acid trax- the personal vs the anonymous - but i suppose they were all played together at that time, I'm not sure when deep house became a scene of its own...

    "Deep House" is one of those things like "electro" or "garage" that means completely different things depending on the age of the person you are asking.


    Personally I would say you need Joe Smooth "Promised Land", Ten City "That's The Way Love Is", Sterling Void "It's Alright", Blaze "Can't Win For Losing", Fingers Inc "Another Side LP.

    But the I am an old (school) person.

    Like wise. Deep house was to me was something like this from 1987.



    And since then its meant many different things/styles

    Cor yeah that Arnold Jarvis tune is wicked.

    Is the distinction between house and garage of that era simply that house is from Chicago and Garage is from New York?

    Must give a mention to Global Communications' 'The Way (Secret Ingredients Mix)' really. Although it's much later it did come to epitomise a certain kind of lush deep house. Of course it's a bit of a tribute / pastiche from scene outsiders but that just illustrates that questions of authenticity in house music are silly.

    I always dug this track back in the days, it just has a great minimalist deep-clipped sound and good chick vocals, and it's gay (as opposed to 'indie') as shit which is a good prerequisite for any dance music.

    All house music should have such a luxuriously modern warm sound like this



    This ole' house:








    The DANGEROUS thing is that some of this stuff veers towards ACID JAZZ, which was the most disgusting fucking toilet shit ever shat out onto the sonic landscape, worse than Shkin' Steven even!

    There was a Muzik magazine CD that was the definition of mid-90s deep house. I have it somewhere, and I will rip for you, cos it was well good like.

    I love that Davina track. Mad Mike's finest moment imo.

    I've been listening to a lot of Liz Torres recently:

    I am really feeling the current deep house movement happening in Detroit and surroundings, Jenifa Mayanja, Reggie Dokes, Jus Ed, etc. specially Mayanja's releases on Bu-Mako, totally brilliant...

    Levon Vincent has put out some great releases of late too (he used to collab with Jus Ed). Definitely part of the Basic Channel continuum, but with a decidedly deep house flavour, much like Luke Hess and Mike Huckaby's recent stuff.
