Deep Cuts Vol.3 - DJ Deep (Deeply Rooted)

Title: Deep Cuts Vol.3
Artist: DJ Deep
Label: Deeply Rooted
Cat Number: DRH053
Genre: Techno

A1: MKS1 Main
A2: MKS1 Dub
B1: New Horizons Main
B2: New Horizons Dub

DJ Deep . . . I remember constant visits to Rough Trade in Paris where he would be a similarly frequent consumer. Back then he was, amongst other things, Paradise Garage obsessed. His musical trajectory seems to have been a lot more techy of late however, and this EP does little to dispel this. The two main versions are competent and functional, ‘MKS1’ being the more overtly persuasive of the pair, while ‘New Horizons’ is more interesting. The dubs feel a little hollowed out by comparison, but manage to retain an air of slight esotericism. It’s all functional stuff, but hardly throwaway.
