Stop calling it deep house
You heard the new Bondax? Sick deep house, bruv. Except it isn’t deep house. Neither is the latest George FitzGerald, nor the next Duke Dumont. Maybe it’s for lack of a better term. Maybe it’s because such sounds are not as bright and bold as, say, Rustie’s glo-step or maybe it’s because there’s more subtlety to it than the latest EDM headache. Who knows? But bulbous, rubbery bass in a club track does not equal deep house. Allow Mixmag’s Kristan J Caryl to school you on the real deal.
