    I don't get it. Can anyone explain why they like it?

    Also if there are any Deep House gems out there, please share.

    Not really listened to any for years, but I used to be vaguely into it at one time. Mostly dull as fuck, but theres some gems in there, as with anything. I'll dig some out in a while (they'll all be 10+ years old mind...)

    Pretty much always enjoyed 95 North stuff. But yeah, can be as dull as fuck.

    Some of the Defected in the House sessions are good. Kevin Saunderson's one from last year especially so.

    I've always found deep house a tricky one to categorize. Its just house with less piano in my opinion.

    for me it always made sense in the mix

    not sure what is going on these days with it but mid to late nineties/early 2000 there was some good stuff knocking around, helped by a decent smoke machine/strobe combination and the less alcohol the better.

    here's a couple i quite like:

    this sounds like it's cropped out of a longer mix, but it's the only copy i can find on the tubes:

    8fatfat8 - rise up & walk

    BRS - lovin' me (dubtribe soundsystem remix)

    It's great for driving round the M25 at 2am.

    found his later stuff less interesting, but the three boulevard EPs st germain released on F com are all great.

    i like it as music to 'zone out' to on the dancefloor. No big build ups, heavy lead riffs, rewinds etc just subtle, musical, melodic, pulsating, hyponotic grooves. At its best it's mesomizing and uplifting and it's worst it's flat and boring.

    It makes perfect sense if you've been up all night, your exhausted but still want to move. You're in a field , the sun is rising.....

    It's kind of like minimal before that existed. Love some of the dubby stripped stuff, perfect for those late mornings.

    ^ Exactly this :cool:

    Like all the other oldies on this forum my knowledge of deep house is from the 90s. I suspect that it's used to describe something quite different today.

    There was quite a scene in the midlands in the 90s that I got into when I lived in Sheffield. They were proper cool free parties, with no acid tekno is sight. I loved loads of stuff on DiY, but can't find links to post for some reason. Some of the early releases on Toko were pretty good:

    Klarky Cat - Gumbo

    It's very much a feeling that has to be experienced but dancing at dawn on the seafront, a hillside in the south downs near Brighton or in fields in the Midlands to crews like Positive Sounds, DiY, Smokescreen etc is when I really got into deep house. It's the spiritual vocals combined with grooving basslines and uplifting keys that just make sense in the right setting with the right people. It seems to be big again with the kids who were into dubstep / garage / funky a few years ago. Anyway here are a few good (imo) deep house records.

    Nice one Jim! Davina is one of my all time favourites, along with some of those I posted on the thread ska linked to.

    Perfect. This is why I like it. Thread answered! Might as well post some more tunes while I'm here, eh? :)

    tufty79 played the original of this in the fishco on Friday which I'd never heard before. The remix is great. *EDIT* This is the wrong mix. I meant to post the Brooks Dub Instrumental mix. It's not on YouTube though so I'll leave this here. Imagine fewer vocals parts and it's pretty much the same :cool: Or go here if you really want to hear it.

    And I can't avoid posting some Moodymann on these threads

    Soundstream has been one of my favourite producers in the last few years, but he doesn't release a lot

    And this is a nice piece of repetitive, bassy deepness

    I doubt any of these will change your mind on deep house, but I class them all as absolute gems.

    Even stuff like this is, broadly, deep house, though that depends what you mean by house as it's a far cry from the likes of Blaze:

    Todd Terje - Inspector Norse

    Skatebard - Vuelo

    Lindstrom - Another Station (Todd Terje mix)

    Lindstrom - I Feel Space
