A few days ago I gave you guys Part 1 of The Club Week 38 with about as many festival/arena sized tracks to keep you going for weeks. If you're looking for big room progressive & electro house, this is NOT the spot. Today however, we're going deep.. I've been across the internet and back over the last few weeks and bring you the most in depth selection of deep house I've done yet. There's definitely a common theme throughout; groovy bass lines and more vocals than has probably ever been on The Club.
It's official. My new favourite producer is now Finnebassen. The 24 year old out of Norway is featured here a slew of times, most notably for his remix of Prince's "When Doves Cry", his original epic masterpiece "Such A High", and another funky jam that you can't do anything but fall in love with, "Touching Me". Every song he releases has this kind of emotional power instilled within them and when his bass lines kick in, there's something about them that takes over you. Vintage vocals paired with classic synths and impeccable percussion have made the perfect recipe for success, as he currently is sitting well on the Beatport deep house charts as we speak with "What You Do", "A Little Somethin Somethin", and "Touching Me" all in the deep house top 100.
Also doing well on those Beatport deep charts (actually sitting at #1 right now!) is Tube & Berger, a German duo who that's been pumping out some of the best tunes all over the deep spectrum. I featured "Lovebreak" as the final track in the mix above, and if you could ever describe a deep house tune as a banger, this is the one. With those memorable lyrics from Bran Van 3000's "Astounded", and a drop to make you look around with your jaw halfway to the floor as if to say "Are you hearing this....!?", its no wonder why its doing so well right now.
Climbers have appeared on each of the last few instalments of The Club [Deep House] section and they show no signs of slowing down. The Mexican duo has been busy releasing standout tracks like "2 Come Back", a song with a vocal hook that keeps you wanting more. Luckily, with impressive remixes from Fur Coat and Miguel Campbell, we get a couple of fresh takes on an instant classic from the guys that have already brought us such incredible compositions as "Hypnotic Vision" and "Equal Responsibility", the latter of which I featured on Week 37 not long ago.
Round Table Knights have been on the cusp of something big for a while it feels like, but with their recent productions it seems like they've really found a sound that works. Last month's "On Fire", is still one of the hottest tracks around right now, while their recent remix of Penner+Muder's "Presence Of Another Man" takes similar synths and with turns it into something magical. Can't wait to hear whats next from @Roundtizzy.
Last, but certainly not least, of the five artists that I HAD to feature extensively is Kolombo, the Belgian producer who makes more than one appearance here today, including a predictably amazing collaboration with Sharam Jay featuring some rather memorable vocals from a generation past. One of the few tracks I'll listen to that has rap or hip hop vocals, "My Own Business" comes off his latest EP that I highly recommended grabbing here. Also in the Kolombo pack are a few collabs with Loulou Players, the first original mix titled "Give It To Me" and the second, a remix courtesy of Zombie Disco Squad for "Don't Go Away" that just can't escape my head. As if that wasn't enough, check his remix for Junk Yard Rhthym Section's "Falling", one of my favourites from the week.
If you love the music like I do, make sure you support the artists and purchase the music at a music outlet such as Beatport or similar!
