Getting Deeper Podcast #59 mixed by Mathias Maximiliano

Spain’s Mathias Maximiliano gives us the 59th family member in the Getting Deeper podcast series. Deep, industrial-tech grooves take the center stage in this timeless set while tech house together with some techno gives it a fluid shape.

Mathias begins the set with a melancholic Jon Hopkins’ tune and gracefully moves on to deeper sounds. The end result is a tightly knit set that is packaged so damn well. It’s incredibly well crafted, with a hypnotic progression that is so easy to get lost into. It will take you to a new york-esque world at midnight. You will get sucked in, slowly and gradually… and it will feel good.

I love it when sets have the power to transport you to places you probably even have never been to. It just shows how well developed it is, like a strong personality with characteristics that are hard to miss. In light of that, the set has a beautifully dark character which is subtle at most places and incredibility good to fall in love with.

It will be hard not to listen to the set from start to finish if, of course, you have the appetite and the time for it. And so, I urge you to make some time (and some space) and give it a good listen.

Thank you Mathias! This set is top class.

Getting Deeper Podcast #54 mixed by WirrwarR Gestern

Daniel Büchele aka WirwarR Gestern has given us a total dance bomb for Getting Deeper’s 54th podcast. Dark, deep tech comes in contact with some sinnister grooves in this one. The end result is a hypnotic sound with pulsating beats to cushion you in and out of a trance like state.

Daniel sets the stage for a massive sonic story with an even more massive intro. I absolutely love the cinematic undertone of the intro, and how it leads to bombs on top of bombs. A post apocalyptic era is blended with an ultra modern, raw touch. To dive deep into it, you need quality speakers. They will do justice to the set, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Escapism comes hand in hand with it. The beats are so overpowering that you will be strangely overwhelmed by the set, and you will find a lot of pleasure in it. That’s what escapism is in the end.: an overpowering urge to do overpowering things.

Thank you Daniel, this set is… like I’ve said before: A MASSIVE BOMB. We’re proud.

Getting Deeper Podcast #44 mixed by Inchange

Russia’s Michael Soldatkin aka Inchange was immediately on our radar after we heard his album Found Records. Intense, not overly emotional but definitely very deep, Inchange has the ability to produce tracks that are chill and at the same time edgy. Edgy because they have a certain uniqueness to them. He explores various tempos, soundscapes and flows to create music that is both interesting and great to listen to. A lot of unique, interesting music is great in terms of composition but not something that many of us can dive into. We can appreciate it but we cannot hold it close to our hearts. Inchange, however, combines simplicity with originality that blows our minds every single time we glance at it.

For Getting Deeper 44th podcast, Inchange has impressed us beyond our expectations. This is because he is relatively new to making podcasts. For someone who hasn’t explored the side of making sets too much, this is top class. Downtempo beats, organic sounds and a very intelligent track selection makes this set a must have for anyone who loves their chillout music.

The vibe is consistent, with dark mind-expanding aural trips. Sometimes the set embraces the twisting, mechanical world of breakbeat… enough to to take you to different horizons, just enough so that you don’t get confused with sudden shifts in the set; and that is precisely what chillout music is about.

Thank you Inchange, this set is flawless… and definitely one of its kind on Getting Deeper.

Getting Deeper Podcast #38 mixed by Frau Hofmann

After a long wait, Getting Deeper finally got a podcast by the wonderful Karin aka Frau Hofmann from Germany. Since the time the making of the podcast was finalized, it has been around some months and both Getting Deeper as well as Karin have grown since then. Even though so much time has passed, it hasn’t stripped our musical taste and quality in selection… good music has always stayed true in our hearts, no matter where it is coming from, or when it came or who it is from.

Industrial and at the same time melodic, Frau Hofmann has created a 1 hour 20 minutes experience of hypnotic and magnetic powers. Each and every track is picked in such a way that it fits the grungy vibe of the set. Definitely made for dark nights, this set is going to be a great figure in dimly lit rooms, late night drives and a wicked but classy imagination.

Yes, the set has a subtle but sinister vibe. If I had to describe it with a symbol, I would use that of a gentle and mysterious woman with a force so fierce that the power of the force itself works as a cover for its fierceness. Similarly, the set has some mysteriousness and wickedness to it, but it comes out in subtle ways – something that is the result of quality and class. You can just get deeper and deeper into it, slowly and gradually… and not even realize it.

As much as I admire energetic music, I also love and admire music that speaks so much through minimal, uncomplicated sounds and subtle progressions. It fits perfectly with the philosophy of this blog.

Thank you Karin! You have not only made an amazing set but you are also a great person to work with 🙂
