Getting Even Deeper…Into House: Day Ten [House]
I’ll be reviewing the incredibly original sounds of Justin Martin and Dusky together on their collaborative effort in making “Don’t Go”. Let me begin with saying that the (sub)genre known as Deep House is a mysterious one. Even many A-List EDM artists haven’t experienced the true Deep House vibes. Deep House after all, upon first impressions, appears to be yet another subset of the broad house spectrum. However, once you break the surface of nearly any Deep House track you instantly enter into a very slapped bass, almost Nu Disco-esque vibe. The Deep House genre, in this way, is foreign to most ears.
I may have mentioned in the past that I’m a subscriber to SiriusXM satellite radio. Even if I haven’t, you now know. To fully understand, you must know that SiriusXM is subscription based and is often pricey just to listen to music. But, it’s totally worth it. Their two EDM channels, BPM (my personal preference) and Electric Area, are very underground and hipster in their selection. Anyway, it was about two days ago when I heard “Don’t Go” late at night. I was hooked to say the least.
Don’t Go has, as previously stated, has a very generic kick and snare to open up the first minute and two seconds. From there the transformation begins into a unique Deep House track with an absolutely amazing distorted slap bass line opening up in the track at one minute and thirty six seconds. The track takes the vocals and applies a very nice reverberated echo fading, making for a very light and airy feeling set of lyrics that mesh quite well with the song and provide some audible contrast to the very crisp and dry slap bass system found oh-so predominantly throughout the song. Overall, I enjoyed the song and that’s why I’ve given the song a rating of 8.5/10.
