Called the most “deep” and “intellectual” subgenre of house. The distinct musical progression isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, which is why deep house is dubbed music for the soul, not for dancing. But, if you really feel it, then you will undoubtedly enjoy joining the rhythm flow.
This genre appeared around 1990, combining house, jazz and ambient. This is how it received its dense atmospheric sound, filled with chord progressions, keyboard and wind instrumental solos and vocals. Eric Kupper (and K-Scope), Kevin Yost, Larry Heard were groundbreaking artists of that time.
The second wave of popularity came in the mid 2010s. Having lost a little in live instrumental jazz, deep house becomes more rhythmic and calm, the vocal component is enhanced, as does a smooth and sophisticated pitch. It is included in the chillout sets more and more, but this does not mean at all that deep house is lost among its more commercial counterparts. This genre is loved by many contemporary artists: Kaskade, Miguel Migs, Nicolas Jaar, Blue Six, Nina Kraviz, A.A.L., Luciano, Oliver Heldens and other well-known upcoming DJs.
