When I dropped this popular series back in 2009, it had transitioned into the System Edition as the musical landscape was becoming more obtuse, electronic and frankly (IMHO) difficult to enjoy. Ultimately, I dropped it altogether.
The original series actually started out as a mish-mash of Soulful house, Deep House, Tech House, Minimal and Electronica depending on what was left over from previous sets. At its peak, the genres began to taper down to more Deep House and Tech House, which is what moved so many of you, that still have fond memories and long for those days.
I've always said that music (especially house music) is cyclical. A certain style is in vogue one day and the next day it's out, then bounces back again a decade or so later. Witness the rise of NuDisco, which is nothing more than modern-day version of its parent Disco. The same can be said for Deep House and Tech House. Those genres really had moved away from their roots (or evolved if you will) but now appear to be swinging back around.
I do believe I've captured the feel and spirit of those earlier sets with Back Into the Deep but I'll let you folks decide if I move forward with this new incarnation.
In the interim, I have fully re-instated the back catalog for the Deep Edition for premium subscribers, though some of the earlier versions had two sets in one post, in which case I made the first set available for free and the second strictly for premium members. You'll have to figure it out on your own because the posting format that I used in the early days was a bit convoluted.
Anyway, let me know what you think. The success or failure of this series is solely dependent on YOU; so make your voice heard or it will be back to the dustbin of history once again.
I'll be back tomorrow with some cool funky house for ya. Until then ...ENJOY!
