Presented by Felix Moreno, Stuttgart-based DJ, and former Glow Bangkok resident, Mindtrax offers a DJ’s point of view on a selected track, once every two weeks. This week’s edition sees Felix share his thoughts on a Daniel Avery track – and the concept of ‘Deep House’.
However, my point today is on the usage of Deep House as a genre label. All I Need is a living example of how good a more European-oriented interpretation of Deep House can sound. The track certainly features more elements from Techno than it does House – but it has a deepness and warmth that, for me, is the essence of Deep House.
Sadly, of late, ‘Deep House’ as a genre label has become a mere marketing tool – and many tracks sold under this umbrella are nothing more than pitched down Tech House.. and, in my view – utterly boring and without Soul.
But, fortunately there are exceptions. Like the present one.
