Tshediso Ra was on duty to select for us the top 5 deep house releases for us here at Oh OneOne Vinyl. Even had to tell us why he selected these records. In no particular order of course.
Emre Can Swim – ARS 002
If you’re into dubby and atmospheric low bpm house music, then this EP that came out on Artesian Sound is for you. Personally, Slide in Deep remixed by the label co-head, Aleksandir caught my attention instantly. I must say, Aleksandir nailed his take on Slide in Deep. The song doesn’t feel like a drag, it just slides to 5 minutes with ease and this because of the sounds he choose as well as the programming of drums. Just Amazing!
Ron Juan – Express Yourself
The title says it all for me. I certainly can hear that Ron Juan aka Giovanni Damico was expressing himself. Ron has graced many top notch labels and with Express Yourself, he graces deepARTSounds. The entire record is packed with musical expressions of someone who has a versatile music taste and production skills. It’s a must have record if you ask me.
Ron Trent – Warm
I always look forward to Ron Trent’s releases solely because I feel he is consistent and he always raises the bar with every release. How do I even begin to choose my favourite track on this 3 track EP. The opening track, Night Ride, I dig that synth old school sound. Oh a Journey comes with a down-tempo feel to it. The last track, Exhale, offers you that soft rock sound with Ron Trent’s usual outstanding keys.
Kai Alce/Brett Dancer/Nick holder – NDATL Pecial Edition 2019
The Annual NDATL special edition release excited me when I saw Brett Dancer on it. He is one of my all-time favourite producers. This needs no review at all – it’s an iconic release that needs to be bagged while you can because it’s going to be a rare and expensive record in years to come because of Brett Dancer.
Erobique – LEHULTSUB 004
One always expects something really dope from this renowned keyboard wizard. And on this Lehult Germany release, he really does wow me. Out of this world! A 2 track EP with sounds that take you on a journey, dominated by the skillful play of the keys. I love this release.
