Deep house, is one of the most well-known sub-styles of house music that originated in Chicago. The difference between different house music and deep house is the slower beat (120 – 125 bpm). In the deep house, you can find many jazz and soul music samples. Gospel music samples are also used sometimes in the vocal parts. By using a much more simplified drum machine the structure of the deep house is more minimalistic than other house types. DJ’s determine the use of filters themselves for example by excluding the bass drum a couple of beats. Able to perform in England, we have a couple of deep house DJ’s who are good at that, they are specialists in deep house music and play their own mix at many parties and festivals. One of whom we are talking about is Don Diablo, of course.
Diablo is considered essential to the deep house DJ world.
