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

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 ūüôā

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 Рthis set and their music Рis 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 #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 #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!

Oliver – Control (Topi Remix)

Topi’s remix of Oliver’s control is a futuristic, synth heavy track with a divine¬†vibe that I absolutely love. He has paired a magnificent intro with a mind blowing progression in a 5 minute package that will make you want to play it again and again. If you were listening to music on a spaceship, this should be it… and that’s one of the reasons why I have rightfully called it Space Disco. It’s sparkling space disco goodness. Yummy.

And it’s available for free download.

 

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!
