DeepWit Essentials Weeks 43 – 47 Pt. 2

Now to finish catching up on all the latest and greatest out there we’ve come across. Keep in mind we normally collect music links throughout the internet from artists we follow via social media, music that is shared with us, music we hear on the radio that is surprisingly good, mixes and charts ect. We can’t share the music if we haven’t heard it though so if there is ever anything you want to share with us, feel free by dropping us an email or adding us to your promo list :)

We are going to start off on a totally different foot this time, with something purely outside of the norm. We bought this album earlier this week after hearing the title track on the Radio. The Danish band Worn Out Sun offers up a really awesome and varied release, for any of you interested in this sort of music.

 


Now from Indie music to some Indie Dance / Indie House if there is such a thing. We are a big fan of the amazing work Mesake & Indre Ju put together and we are always mesmerised by their sound. This is our latest release and you can grab it now with remixes from Tim Angrave and Alvaro Hylander.

 


From one musician we love to another, David Oniani. We have worked with him several times over the years and honestly he is one of our favourite Jazz inspired producers without a doubt. If you like Jazz and you like House than this is the man you should be listening to. His latest release is out now on Crumpled Music.

 


If I only got paid for every time I pushed Cold Busted‘s music, I would be making a pretty penny about now. What can I say, we are just huge fans of a lot of the music they release and this Album from Zac Love is just an outstanding example of that.


Yes I know, I can be a bit predictable in my music tastes, including this very cool track from Intro Beats “Silly Walkin” on Lagaffe Tales.


I have no idea where this next artist came from but ever since we have noticed BDTom on the scene, we have been loving every single thing he has put his name to and this release on the brand new label Limitation Music, also well worth checking out.

 


And can we just say, pure class and quality right here from Sumsuch on UM Records? Love this remix.

 


Moving onto the tracks for those times you need to move or need to make others move, we have to start with this great track from Fer Ferrari on Plastic City. The entire release is tailored for the dance floor.

 


This is the second time we have heard Aiby & The Noise on Colour and Pitch and honestly, we can’t get enough of their grittier dance floor sound.

 


Finishing us up is Usmev‘s EP on Cymasonic Recordings. Deepermeister & Dive in You are the tracks for me, the other two are a bit too dark for my personal tastes, although Alvaro is crazy about the entire release.

 

 

DeepWit Essentials Weeks 43 – 47 Pt. 1

Sometimes shit happens. Most of that shit is normally what you end up calling life as a grown up. As I am in a few short weeks about to be 30, I can on longer avoid that fact that I am indeed, a grown up. And shit happens. There is this really cheesy quote that I use to find romantic in my younger years “Life is what happens when you are busy making plans”. Now, I just realise it is this rather blunt truth that you can only take solace in when things get really, really out of hand. The last few weeks were exactly like this. Hence the need for a two parter in catching up with all the great music that has been coming out over the last few weeks while life has been happening to us here at the DeepWit residence.

We are going to start off with a label that I sincerely enjoy for just the easy listening music they release. I have spent a lot of time in my house and on adventures listening to a wide range of what the lovely Label Lemongrassmusic has to offer. This is a nice little VA to give you a sampling of some of what they do.


From one Various Artists to another, here is our latest Autumn Air Seasonal Sampler, featuring 5 stunning tracks for the change of Seasons here in the Northern Hemisphere. Includes tracks from new comers like Johannes, A M I R, and Agus Monteverde next to the established gents Kiano & Below Bangkok as well as La Rose.


Now for one of the artists that has worked with us for years here at DeepWit, Ivan Garci with one of his latest tracks on his own label Vlosfer Records.


This track is one we have really been enjoying from Just Move Records from down in South Africa. Lovely original from Schenk & Chris Sen Feat. Ms. Kelle. Exactly why Original vocals can give a boost to a song.


Now, not to be bias but I am super in love with this new single we just released here on DeepWit, The Machine. The Original from Cadatta is just an outstanding timeless track and the remixes from Soul Minority and Alvaro Hylander just bring the whole release up to the highest level. Check it out, if you haven’t heard it yet.


From one label I love to another, Lost My Dog. This is one of those rare labels we are never disappointed by as we can always find at least one track from every release we really enjoy. Big up to Liquid Phonk and this quality track, Superuschi from their Stomp Your Love EP.


I am always excited to run across new labels with quality music and Just Like That Music seems to be exactly that, really love this track from Alex Neivel & Pat Heart feat. DJ Bene, although there are a ton of other tracks well worth checking out from the label if you aren’t familiar with them.


And before we jump into some vinyls, here is a remix that we would be super happy to have in vinyl from Glenn Astro. Deep, Jazzy and dance inspiring, the best of the tracks from this EP on Beef Records.


Now to some vinyl! Lovely lovely lovely stuff here on Soiree Records International from Tominori Hosoya. This is exactly my type of music to have on a vinyl, timeless and beautiful.


To finish off this half of the chart, we leave you with another outstanding vinyl. This time from a man we are super happy to have releasing with us in December with a great remix he did for our next release. This Vinyl is one everyone who is a Deep House & House lover should rush out and pre-order right now, I am sure you won’t be disappointed by either this EP from Junktion or the others offered up by Slow Town Records.

Why Tracklists Matter

Now, now before you get your panties in a bind about how “original” you are, how you don’t want other people “copying” your style and how other people are too lazy to find their own good music, this blog post is aimed EXACTLY at those Radio Show Hosts, DJ’s and Producers that are on Promo lists. If you are Purchasing (not stealing by illegally downloading mind you) all the tracks you play, than by all means feel free to keep the track listing all to yourself.

If, on the other hand, you are on a least a few promo lists and you feel providing a track listing is not necessary let me go on a little rant about why you are wrong.

  1. Promo’s aren’t “free music”. We are trading what would hopefully be your purchase of the track for your support for the track via you playing the track. Now you can play our track, but if you don’t add a playlist, you aren’t holding up your end of the trade.
  2. Of course we also appreciate other types of support. Charts, you sharing the soundcloud/youtube/buy links, ect are all awesome for us. Just imagine though, making a chart but not telling anyone who is on it…. ya sort of pointless right?
  3. We will actually send traffic back to your mixes! Assuming the label has hand selected the people on their list, your feedback and playing of our tracks actually does matter to us. If you play our music, chances are we are going to share it with our fans as well.

And at the risk of sounding a bit arrogant, as a label owner, at this point, I no longer have time to sit down and listen to every mix out there that could possible have one of the labels tracks on it. I already spend several hours a week browsing through mixes (another tip, go ahead and tag the label or artists you played in your mix. Makes it a lot easier for us to find them!) and between all of the other responsibilities of life, I just can’t find the time. This means you are missing out on exposure. It is a two way street after all.

I would like to end this little rant with a thank you to everyone that plays our music. I know that for all the hours I listen to music, screen music, schedule music, work on charts and sift through mixes, you are out there digging through all the same shit we are and to be included in any mix is a big honour. Just make it a bit easier for us and let me thank you personally by sharing that mix.

Speaking of mixes, you can always catch our Monthly Radio Show on Proton Radio, West Radio and DE Radio every month. And guess what? We always provide the track listing ;)
