David Hasert & Matteo Luis – Watermelon (Tim Engelhardt Remix)

Recently released on Dantze, Tim Engelhardt‘s remix of David Hasert & Matteo Luis‘ ‘Watermelon’ is an infectious tune best suited for orange skies and lush vibes. We like to call that a sunset.

Melodic and hypnotic, the track is a juicy package of warm, fruity vibes. It’s hard not to feel mushy and fuzzy inside while listening to this gorgeous track… and extremely difficult to stop referring to it in terms related to… well… a watermelon. You just can’t get over its melodic goodness. Yummy.

Smooth, sexy, classy and absolutely gorgeous… that’s Florian Rietze for you. And yes, this set is best suited for a night drive. Enjoy.

Steve Huerta – Bear Witness

‘Bear Witness’ by Steve Huerta is an upcoming February release on London based label Anjunadeep. Deep, with warm beats and groovy overtones… ‘Bear Witness’ is a feel good concoction that immediately transports you to a fuzzy, warm setting with lush vibes. Real smooth and real deep. We love it!

Ghosts Of Paraguay – Needing You (Kaiori Breathe Remix)

An old favorite, I ended up rediscovering Kaiori Breathe‘s remix of ‘Needing You’ by Ghosts of Paraguay all over again on Digitally Imported radio. Apt to its genre, this track is a chilling piece of divinity. It is beautifully haunting… and a complete relaxing experience to listen to. Enjoy.

The track is available for free download here.

Lennart & Federweiss – Depart (Original Mix) – Snippet

Industrial yet deep, ‘Depart’ by Lennart & Federwiess comes under the third release of Hamburg based label LikeBirdz. True to its description put forth by the guys from the label, ‘Depart’ is clean track with a timeless and intimate quality that transcends typical dance music into something you would like to listen to over and over again… with or without the floor.

Aparde – Erosion

Released on Stil vor Talent, ‘Loom’ by Aparde is a 4 track EP with a dark and deep atmosphere made up of  dense beats and  subtle progressions. ‘Erosion’ is a free download, released under the same title but not included in the main EP. It does a killer job of representing the essence of Loom. Spacey, ambient soundscapes together with drifting vocals makes this track a stunning companion to grey, steely winter skies. A must listen for anyone who loves their beautifully haunting electronic music.

It’s available for free download. 

Electric Feel – Henry Green (shagabond edit)

Shagabond’s edit of ‘Electric Feel’ is the deeper, sexier and more sensual sister of Kygo’s edit of Henry Green’s cover. It’s gentle, with soft beats and echoing synths… and feminine, with a light and airy texture. Feels like your heart is beating to it.

The end result: a beautiful and intimate sound perfect for late nights and candle lights. Enjoy 🙂

And it’s available for free download.

Madbliss – Lust

It’s been such a long time since I’ve set out to explore individual tracks on my own. I have only been listening to sets and podcasts especially because they give such good company during long journeys, which take up an important part of my day. My commute to and from work is almost 2 hours, and there is nothing better than an hour long beautiful aural story to go along with it. While sets are absolutely amazing for such situations (or any situation for the most part), they also have a big downside in the eyes of music aficionados like me. Downside because it really limits you to a particular genre, makes you lazy to go out and explore music of your own, and generally just reduces your music library to an obsolete collection because you get so comfortable in the space created by sets.

And so, today I deliberately told myself that it is (without a question) time to go back to where I started from – plain, raw and ruthless song (and soul) searching. Plus, it’s not nice to see Getting Deeper’s first page filled with (mostly) sets. As much as I love them, I feel like I am not fulfilling my duty well.

Now, enough of the back story. Let’s get to the point: this gorgeous, creamy and sensually stunning track: ‘Lust’ by Madbliss, released by Future Beats Records. In my first 5 minutes of song searching, I found this and it reminded me of how much good music there is for me to discover and write about.

The track is a short, 3 minutes piece packed with goodness. It is a perfect combination of sexy, classy and downright smooth… and an absolute must for your beats playlist.

The track is available for free download here. 

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 #69 with Ninze & Okaxy – Deep October Mix

Ninze & Okaxy’s set for Getting Deeper is truly a gorgeous piece of sonic extravagance. It feels like the set is inspired by a beautiful but bittersweet love story in an old, exotic setting. It transports you to the abstract, delicate, profound and voluptuously wordless space between  definitions. It represents the inexplicable, commonly known as the grey area- of which life is mostly made of and something that only art has the power to represent so beautifully. That’s why we have films, artworks, architecture, novels… and of course… music.

It is only when you get really deep that you are able to capture these delicate moments. It takes an intelligent mind and lots of honesty and courage to be able to explore those dark spaces. Feels like Ninze & Okaxy have bathed themselves in these deep moments and created something aurally beautiful out of them. The end result – this set and their music – is a mesmeric, mysterious and absolutely show shopping package of intoxicating melodies.

What you will get, when you open this package, is some dusty jazz wrapped in warm beats together with a lot of intricate melodic goodness. They have chosen exceptional tracks and tied them together in such a way that you really won’t feel that there are individual tracks at all in the set. And that makes the set timeless. Time frames within the set are subtle, giving it a wholesome and grandiose character. It’s a film translated into music.

We hope you love it as much as we do.

Ninze & Okaxy… thank you for this divine work.
