Deep house

Back | Home | Up | Next


Deep house is a style of house music. It is loosely defined by the following characteristics that distinguish it from most other forms of house music:
  • relatively slow tempo (110–125 bpm);
  • de-emphasized percussion, including:
    • simpler drum machine programming;
    • gentle transitions and fewer "build-ups";
    • less "thumpy" bass drum sound;
    • less pronounced hi-hats on the off-beat;
  • sustained chords or other tonal elements that span multiple bars;
  • increased use of reverb, delay, and filter effects;

Modern deep house artists and DJs include: Son Dexter, Larry Heard, Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell, Antonio Ocasio, 'Little Louie' Vega, King Britt, dj Yannick, Lars 'LB' Behrenroth, jojoflores, Julius 'the Mad Thinker', Osunlade, Nadirah Shakoor, Miguel Migs, Lisa Shaw, Ian Pooley, Gaelle, Latrice Barnett and more.

Popular Record Labels of the genre include: Alleviated Records, Yoruba People's Music, Sacred Rhythm Music, NEEDS, Gotsoul Recordings, MAW Records, deep4life, Restricted Access, Tribal Winds Records, Giant Step Records, King Street Sounds, Naked Music, Salted Music, & OM Records.

Deep House music is often synonymous with 'Lounge Music' and popular niche compilations such as Hotel Costes, House of OM, Café del Mar and Lost On Arrival have blurred the two genres with influences of ambient or electro-downtempo music.

During the 90s in the UK, progressive house was an evolution of deep house. It was essentially the same as deep house, but with each phrase the complexity of the melody was built up. Notable early pioneers of this genre include Slam (Positive Education) and K Chandler, along with Blake Baxter.
