The Deeep‘s Life Light cassette has been one of my favorite acquisitions on spools from the past year. The rich low tempos, and the enchanting female vocals create a seductive “post trip-hop” sound. Los Angeles analog synth master DJ MGG (M. Geddes Gengras of Personable, Robedoor, Warm Climate, WHERES YR CHILD, Duppy Gun Productions) just made this mix of their track “Dream”. Its glitchy bleeps, and moments of slightly off rhythm, paired with The Deeep’s echoey ambiance make this the perfect track for a post-club Ibizan morning when you are trying to mellow out and stop grinding your damn teeth. The thirteen minute tracks takes you through moments of up tempo revelry, but lands back on the dark, persistent rhythm that started things off. The ghost certainly has a place in this machine, although she might be wearing parachute pants.
