A couple of weeks ago me and my homie H**ry were discussing the term "deep house". It's existed for as long as house itself, but it's always been kind of a fuzzy concept. Originally it meant soulful, discoey R&B-based dance records. To some it means soulful diva jams with big pianos and gospel choirs and uplifting messages (i.e. NY Garage), to some it means true school Chicago-style jack trax, and to others it means minimal tech-house 6AM bubblers. Basically the only common thread between these definitions of "deep house" is that it's urban, it's somewhat traditionalist in its approach, and it's a little more sophisticated than that crazy acid rave hoover-noise nonsense that the kids are listening to.

So for my deep house mixtape, I've tried to encompass all of these varying definitions. It's definitely not intended to be a definitive mix or a best of...just some of my favorites from the last 15 years.
