I have fallen arse-over-tit for that Vic Mensa tune from this year.... need more sounds like it.
more than those who refer to it as deep house.
I'm not an authority, either on proper deep house, or on mainstream pop-house in the past couple of years, so I thought I'd leave it to someone else, but I'll give the former a bash if no one comes forward.
As I've pointed out before though, it's become about as useless a label as EDM, or dubstep when it started referring to kinds of music completely unrecognisable to its roots, because pretty much every kind of house music gets referred to as 'deep' house, and some artists take a lot of offence to the appropriation of the label to some pretty vapid music.
This is the kind of thing I'm jamming to:
a 'deep house' album in the late 90's called After Eight. Whilst not a fan of the genre I bought the album as it looked gorgeous. Double Vinyl, green after eight style sleeve, white vinyl. Every 'tune' on it was an underground banger that would never bother the charts. Mellow bliss. I sold the album whilst at Uni, more fool me, a quick Google and I can find no trace of it. It was distributed by 3MV / Indie arm of Sony and may have had a Ministry Of Sound label, searching for it again...
Five years old, still great.
Not on Spotify.
Grand Central Pt 1
Such a brilliant record
or get 'real' deep house suggestions here... like Theo Parrish, DJ Sparkles, etc, which you aint really looking for (I love that stuff though, check it anyway it's awesome just very different from what you're no doubt asking for), DiS isn't very well up on it's pop so go here instead: 'Duke Dumont and A*M*E - Need U (100%) - Rolling UK dance pop interzone thread': http://ilxor.com/ILX/ThreadSelectedControllerServlet?boardid=41&threadid=96014 loads more helpful for that kind of pop house. I'd prob sack a load of that off and just get the DJ Q album Ineffable because it's the best pop house/garage album that never quite became pop cos it was never going to get to that many ears: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQQb-zczO38 / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C20mraLPCZY
Logic - The Warning
My favourite deep house track - got a social message, jazzy, got the deep sounds, and from New York/ New Jersey in the early 90s. But I agree with other posters here its not that useful a term anymore beacuse it seems to be applied to everything.
I've seen Traumprinz stuff described as deep and I might agree
Try that out - he seems to be a master at amazing vocal snatches in tracks.
I also second dj sprinkles.
