This Is Our Dream House, Volume 2 (Deep House Mix)

Do you enjoy listening to deep house? Well, judging by the phenomenal positive response to my first "This Is Our Dream House" mix, there must be a lot of fans out there.

I started to put this mix together in November, but of course got distracted with some other projects over the holidays in Canada. I was going to add a deep house track that I've been working on with David Anthony, but I decided this morning that I should put that track on the next instalment of this series instead, so I could publish this mix today. There's no point including the track that Davy and I are working on unless the video for the track is also ready.





For those of you who aren't normally into EDM (electronic dance music), you might be curious to know the differences between my regular style of progressive/tech-house and this deep house mix. Actually, there aren't always a lot of obvious differences, because I lean a bit more towards the techy side of deep house than the pure organic stuff. So at first, this might just sound a bit like my usual style, but slower. But that would be far from accurate - the deep house in this set can be identified by a few significant differences. First, the instrumentation is often jazzier, ie. there will be Rhodes or Wurli keyboards, more horns, brass, more clean guitar sounds, and more jazzy/bluesy vocals. Also, the tempo of this set is down around 118-120bpm, whereas my mainstream club sets are usually around 128bpm and my radio shows are usually 129-132bpm.
