<Urban House> In the case of Deepland presents Deep Inside I guess I’ll just have to say that it’s best to let the music do the talking as this album arrived without any press release so I know very little about it. Okay here’s what I do know, or think I know… Deepland is a house producer who has hooked up with Music Myself I – the label – and released this 10 track album which they are very excited about according to their website www.vinyljoint.co.za, but even on the site there is scant little info to go by. Handily you can listen to sound bites of the album and here you’ll discover some deep minimal urban house grooves to tickle your ears and get those hips a moving. These guys are shit-hot, I swear it they are! Last issue we reviewed N@ked Grooves, an accomplished compilation of ‘urban-minimal,’ as we termed it, which notably was made up of many Deepland compositions and now this, a full length offering from the same dude. His style is deep, moody and definitely tribal, interestingly devoid of much vocal. If you’re unfamiliar with Urban (Afro) house music you may find it a little chilled to outright shake-yer-hips and move-yer-ass to, but hit one of these jols and you’ll see a dancefloor getting down to this deep urban groove. Deepland is a name to watch for sure.
