Deep Tech

Getting Deeper Podcast #71 mixed by Mark Tarmonea

For Getting Deeper’s 71st podcast, Mark Tarmonea has taken us back to our soulful roots. It’s really refreshing to go back to something more melodic and warm after a long stretch of deep, spacey sounds. What I particularly love about Mark’s set is his choice of tracks and how he has strung them together to create a wonderful progression.

The set begins with lush, rooftop tracks. The vibe is of open air, sunny rooftop sessions with a cozy and comforting functionality. What happens next is a gradual blooming of grandiose stretches and soaring melodies… and boom, that’s when the set opens up into hypnotic beats and intoxicating… almost enchanting synths.

This is one of the few sets on Getting Deeper that’s absolutely banging for most kinds of dancefloors. Moving to the set is a direct result of beautiful and heady trips that are so easy to get lost into. I love it. I love how easy it is to lose yourself to this set.

We hope that the set does the same to you as it does to us.

Thank you Mark for such a heartwarming set. It’s absolutely lovely.

Getting Deeper Podcast #70 mixed by Kai Hillman

For Getting Deeper’s 70th podcast, Kai Hillman has given us a beautiful and clean deep tech set perfect for long drives.

What you will find is deep, repetitive music laced with swirling, spacious melodies arising from a post-techno style. Which means that the set embodies softer, deeper sounds that contemporary techno carries, as opposed to old school, raw techno that is more fast paced with harder edges.

It is that repetitive character in the set’s functionality that makes it so timeless. Subtle transitions and hypnotic melodies make it an absolute must for any kind of journey. It’s slow and steady with grandiose stretches, just like a long therapeutic drive in a big but empty city late during the night. The set captures that feeling of being comfortably lost and provides an accurate snapshot of the drive that quite often accompanies that feeling.

It wouldn’t have been possible without a good hand that knows how to work with the technicalities of mixing sets. Kai has, indeed, made a set that is mixed in such a way that it never loses its balance. The result is not many tracks, but one deep and timeless sound… swirling around its own axis, and gently taking you into the cosmic world of deep, lush techno.

And that gives the set a clear musical identity.We love it.

Thank you Kai for such a heartwarming effort!

Getting Deeper Podcast #68 mixed by Conny Wolf

Conny  Wolf’s podcast for Getting Deeper is one of those sets that have a strong earthy touch to them. Conny has dug deeper into inexplicable human emotions and represented them by chosing tracks with warm, mature vocals and deep beats. This is a set you would love to listen during a late night/early morning drive in a big city. It’s easy to get lost into… just as you would easily get lost in a big city (existentially) on late nights… but oddly, there is no where else you would rather be.

He has chosen tracks with a calm, liquidy surface and tied them together with seamless transitions in such a way that the entire set rightfully forms a beautiful space of its own. It has a transient purity to it that is both melodic and hypnotic. The end result is a gorgeous 1 hour piece that begins with sensual vocals and gradually blooms into the dark, timeless world of melodic deep tech.

I love vocals that have a mysterious and intense personality. I cherish them especially because it’s difficult to capture vocals with depth in electronic music without them sounding overly dark. There is something very sensual and real about them. And they sound divine when they are enveloped in cosmic, spaced out sounds.

And so, thank you Conny for giving us a set that captures something we hold very close to our hearts! Beautifully mixed and beautifully delivered <3

Getting Deeper Podcast #67 mixed by Shash & Chaz

Bangalore boys Shaswat Trivedi & Akshay Chaz aka Shash & Chaz have given Getting Deeper an impeccable set for its 67th number in the podcast series. True to its form, the set adopts a distinct style with a consistent and classy vibe that gives the entire podcast a rich and wholesome shape with an unmistakable silhouette. 

I think the set might actually be one of its kind in the entire Getting Deeper series because of how consistent it is throughout its length of time. There is something about it that is both cohesive and wild.  The beats are warm and soulful, yet… there is an industrial and grungy side to them, with a melodic intensity that is executed with subtlety and understatement, lending the set a more mature and refined character.
This kind of subtlety can only be achieved by a tightly knit track selection and some really smooth transitions. Tracks need to be selected with a thoughtful process in mind so that they compliment each other, either by feeling or by vibe. Finally, all those individual tracks need to be linked together in such a way that they form a beautiful, one hour sonic story of heady images, hypnotic trips and timeless journeys.
That is exactly what this set captures.
Shash & Chaz have, through this set, not only shown us that they are amazing candidates for podcasts but have also paid a welcoming tribute to Getting Deeper’s philosophy… because if there is one thing about podcasts, it is that their distinctness from live sets should be recognized. They are perfect tools for experimentation, lending artists the flexibility to truly showcase something deep – something that is close to their hearts. Unbound by genre orthodoxy and large crowds looking for the next beat to dance to, podcasts can be a perfect way to turn any vision into sound.
And that’s why, GD is really proud to publish this set.
Thank you Shash & Chaz! This set is truly top class in every way possible.

Getting Deeper Podcast #66 mixed by Rishi Sippy

For Getting Deeper’s 66th podcast, we’ve got Bangalore’s very own Rishi Sippy with a banging techno set that we are going to listen to over and over again.

I remember a time around 5 years ago when I first listened to Rishi play live. It’s really amazing to see how he has progressed, and much to my pleasant surprise he has acquired a very deep and intense taste in music that I absolutely needed to showcase on Getting Deeper. His live sounds are a lot more edgy than what I initially expected, and I absolutely love them. I like how he, unbound by genre orthodoxy, isn’t afraid to play around with track tempos… with sets that can get really low and minimal if given a chance, only to rise up to the beat of a techno kick.

And so, I am really excited to publish a set by someone I have actually listened to live a lot of times. His set for Getting Deeper follows a traditional progression that I rarely hear nowadays. It begins with deep, emotional sounds that eventually get much darker, and after the second half, they get more heady and definitely more enchanting. A harder techno bassline makes a welcoming appearance at this point.

The end result: A cushioning, beautifully haunting set that stays true its vibe. It gradually blooms into a dark, cosmic extravagance that is adored on Getting Deeper.

Thank you Rishi!

 

 

Getting Deeper Podcast #65 mixed by Fabio Montana

Getting Deeper’s 65th podcast by Fabio Montana is a banging set that will be a great figure on the dancefloor.

Edgy sounds with smoking hot vibes make up the hallmark of this 1 hour wicked dance mix. He begins the set with a cosmic sound that transitions to something organically earthy… something very tribal that sits on the edge of being industrial and ultimately cosmic.

Yes, almost every track in this set has that midnight, underground feel with disjointed sounds that discreetly enter in and out of each track. These sounds sometimes come in the form of pulsating synth grooves and sometimes drifting voices. And so, it is not hard to say that the set has a strong sense of purpose that is fueled by Fabio’s own affliction towards pulsating beats with deep, cosmic melodies.

The end result: a dark, hypnotic set with a mesmeric quality that flows over, under and right through you.

Thank you Fabio!

Getting Deeper Podcast #64 mixed by TonElite

Martin Saupe aka Ton Elite has been on GD’s podcast list for a very long time. His set for Room84 really gave us a feel of what we wanted to publish in the future. And we loved him, especially because of his ability to create sets with a consistent vibe that is intense, mysterious and sometimes very melodically dark.

TonElite is one of those artists who have a strong musical personality. And that’s why, it’s hard not to play anything that is released by him. This is because his style is far from confused.  He knows exactly what he likes and he knows how to deliver that in a complete and tight package whose individual characteristics compliment each other. And so, when you think of listening to him, you know exactly what you will get… and you will be satisfied.

In this case, those individual characteristics are his set’s track selection, mixing and ultimately the vibe. His 64th podcast for Getting Deeper is a very underground (literally. Think dark, sweaty underground rooms) and industrial set. It begins with deeper, slower sounds and eventually moves on to harder, pulsating beats that will send you to sinister trips.

We love it. We love the mysterious and classy extravagance that comes with it. It’s a witching hour of musical madness that discreetly creeps on you. If that is your appetite, and we know that these kinds of appetites are very rare, you will love this set. We really hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Thank you Martin! It’s a pleasure to release this set on Getting Deeper.

Boy Next Door – Living A Lie + Benotmane + Oliver Koletzki Remix

When I saw releases on Stil Vor Talent today, I knew I couldn’t pass them without giving them a listen, and they are magnificent, as usual. If you’ve listened to other stuff on Stil Vor Talent, you’d know about it’s tendency to release melodically cohesive tracks with a sublime and emotional element.

Boy Next Door’s ‘Living A Lie’ has similar elements of majesty and beauty. It spells Stil Vor Talent.

Our favorite, though, is Benotmane’s remix of ‘Living A Lie.’ It’s deep, divine and extremely gorgeous.

Next comes Oliver Koletzki’s remix of the original. His remix has a more hard character better suited for dancefloors. If the original is soft, melodic techno, then Koletzki’s remix is the badder, harder brother of the original. Enjoy 🙂

Because we love Krink’s sets

Recently I went on a spree of listening to Krink and his music, particularly his sets. And I must say that I am mindblown. His sets are incredibly deep, with tracks that carry a majestic vibe that is overpowering. They rest on the boderline of being too experimental and too cohesive.
The end result: a classy and edgy sound that we absolutely adore.

Genres: Deep Tech, Techno.

Getting Deeper Podcast #62 mixed by Rolandson

Germany’s Rolandson has, for Getting Deeper’s 62nd podcast, given us a set that truly resonates with the blog’s essence. There is something very transient, transparent and intense about it – a depth that Getting Deeper constantly strives to reach.

He has, with this set, not only given us a deep sound but has also woven words around it. It comes with a back story that lifts the set to a more intense level, giving it a wholesome shape and a more intelligent personality. It’s really impressive how Rolandson has given this entire thing – this movement so much heart. The set, as he tells us, is a part of a series of podcasts going under the name of ‘En Resa.’

His set for Getting Deeper is called ‘en resa till den djupaste punkt, Marianergraven.’ It’s the 6th part of a journey to the deepest point – The Marianergraven, which is a deep water channel in the Western Pacific Ocean, with a maximum depth of 11,034 meters and a length of 2400 kilometers. Rolandson tells us that he is fascinated by the underwater world and he yearns a piece of the quiet that reigns down there.

His set for Getting Deeper is that deep, underwater space turned into sound. The vision is of crushing waves and deep sea waters and the emotions associated with it. He tells us that with this set, he meant to make these feelings a more intense experience by making them deeper and warmer. And so, the end result is a journey with the artist to the deepest points of sound, life and his soul.

We love it. Not only is the set everything we hoped for, but it goes much beyond what it is made of. It’s a perfect tribute to what Getting Deeper stands for, and we are really happy to be a part of Rolandson’s own personal journey through sound. Thank you Rolandson for such a heartwarming effort!
