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 #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.

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 #63 mixed by Artenvielfalt

Getting Deeper’s 63rd podcast takes a significant shift from some of the more deeper sets we have been releasing lately, but it’s a welcoming shift nevertheless. Germany’s Ben Sachau and Lennart Vonau, together known as Artenvielfalt, best loved on Getting Deeper for their lovely remix of Alt J’s Tessellate and their Nalu Nalu mixes… have given Getting Deeper the pleasure to publish a set by them for its 63rd number in the podcast series. 

Soulful tech is infused with some industrial sounds in this one. It takes me back to the initial days of Getting Deeper during summer. We had a lot of soulful stuff back then… lots of nice, warm tones and deep beats. And it’s nostalgic to listen to Artenvielfalt’s set in that respect.

Artenvielfalt have created a really nice progression with it. It’s almost as if the progression represents an open air party beginning with warm tones during the day, eventually moving on to grungy, dirty sounds and ending with soulful beats. That entire experience has been condensed in a 1 hour banging set.

The end result: A sultry set with a lot of good vibes, perfectly balanced… and great to remove your dancing shoes to get a little dirty with. We hope you enjoy 🙂

Thank you Artenvielfalt!

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!

Getting Deeper Podcast #61 mixed by Orbs & Zen

Bombay’s Orbs & Zen(Nicky Ramnani and Ajay Makhija) have given Getting Deeper a deep, melodic disco set, perhaps the first of its kind for GD’s 61st number in the podcast series. It’s been a very long time since GD has released a podcast by someone from India, and we are happy to have finally released a set by someone from our own country after a very long time.

The set is nice and smooth, with a sinister  but subtle vibe that makes it a classy figure on the dancefloor. What is great is that it still retains a deep character. It’s a perfect example of a nicely layered blend of rawness, groove and intensity. The end result is a great track selection with edgy, intoxicating melodies and warm tones that will transport you to an electric night. The image here is an open air space, deep into the night and much deeper into the music. Because if there is one thing I can guarantee you, it is that the set will definitely get more hypnotic the more you listen to it.

Thank you Nicky and Ajay! The set is absolutely banging.

Getting Deeper Podcast #60 mixed by Henk

Berlin’s Henk has given Getting Deeper something it has never released before – a groovy, funky french electro set with a hint of deep for its 60th podcast.

Definitely made for summery days, the set will transport you to a sunny Miami in a Mustang. Disco-ish beats are placed under a groovy, soulful melody that is wrapped around a lush vibe. It’s for those of us who love music to the likes of Kartell and Satin Jackets who are famous for their french touch in electro music, sometimes known as Indie Electronic.

The set has a familiar sound because every track in it has adapted many, many different old school styles such as retro, disco and funk. Everything is combined to form a style that, despite sounding familiar, is not everyone’s cup of tea. But if it is your cup of tea, you will love the sultry, dirty vibes that come with it. It must be noted that Henk has mixed the set very well. Each track compliments the other and forms a wholesome package that we can boast is a unique style today.

We hope you enjoy this set as much as we do. Listen to it on your speakers when you are a little drunk, and a little high… and you will get into the groove as much as we do. Because it is made for those dirty, sultry, drunken nights… unless it is a sunny day in Miami in a Mustang!

Thank you Henk <3

1st year anniversary special: Podcast #56 mixed by Dinnerdate.

It has been a lovely year for Getting Deeper. When I first started the blog I had absolutely no idea how enriching the entire journey forward would be. True passion, genuine words and mutual support has gotten it to the place where it is now. I never tried to mold into something that it wasn’t meant to be. Everything had been a result of wherever my musical inclinations took me… one step at a time.  It had to be authentic and more importantly honest.

Firstly, I would like to thank every single artist and every single fan who has made this year MASSIVE for Getting Deeper. And of course… to all my friends who helped me spread the word, and who came up to me whenever they could to show true love and support for GD.

And now, it’s time to introduce Getting Deeper’s anniversary special… and its 56th podcast by Simon Hoppe aka Dinnerdate. It has been raining since the day began, and there couldn’t have been a better setting for Dinnerdate’s set. The set is a gorgeous package of melodic intricacies and lush beats. Opening this package will follow a deep and emotional journey of a mesmeric, show stopping quality.

Mixed to perfection and selected with class, each track in this set is spot on. It hits all the right places at the right time. The end result is a grandiose trip of good vibes and emotional turns that will take you deeper and deeper as the set progresses.

It so happened that Dinnerdate’s set fell during GD’s anniversary. How perfect that is! Dinnerdate’s music is a perfect mix of emotional sounds and deep beats. It’s just right to celebrate GD’s first year. The best part is that the set itself is a wholesome mix of a variety of deep sounds. I love it.

Thank you Simon for making a BIG set for a BIG year!

Getting Deeper Podcast #42 mixed by George Whyman

We are going back to our soulful roots with George Whyman’s set for Getting Deeper. The timing is perfect because today is a nice, warm sunny Sunday… and the summer is just rolling in.

Warm beats are consistently woven with melodic and soulful tones in this set, which makes it a great figure both on the dancefloor and in your room.The set has a light texture to it, in the sense that it is light and deep at the right amounts, just enough to soothe a heavy heart.  It gets much deeper in the middle… and how we love that!

Listening to sets like this is an experience by itself. They automatically have the power to make you feel lighter, clearer and more emotionally alive. And that is an experience that everyone should, from time to time have. A much needed and necessary break from everything.

Thank you George! This is a perfect way to welcome the summer.

Getting Deeper Podcast #41 mixed by Traumfänger

This week’s podcast is a deep, clear and timeless piece by Germany’s Jonas Rêveur  aka Traumfänger. 

Traumfänger has compiled an excellent track selection in such a way that the entire set is going to take you further and further as you listen to it. You almost forget that there is an end to it.  It’s mature and tight with no frills or fanciness. Very classy, consistent and slick.

Pressing the play button for this set is like packing your bags and getting ready for a much needed break – a journey to somewhere you know you should be going, something you know you need to flush out all the mess that is around and inside you. That’s the power of podcasts… I have said it before and I am saying it again, it’s an expression without words; a story beautifully woven by an artist… rightfully placed in front of you to get lost into.

And while the story is happening, if you think about it… so many different yet strangely similar feelings are being experienced by different people around the world. God knows how many people the set has touched, and it’s even more amazing to think about how deeply it’s been experienced by these people. Sometimes not so deeply, but that’s okay… it’s still lovely to think about how and where the set has traveled.

Thank you Jonas!
