Over the past year the Deep House genre has broadened as many producers have shied away from high energy electro/ big room/ anthemic house to make less shallow (yes) house. But does that necessarily make tracks like Gecko and Love Too Deep, actually Deep House? Genreists will argue for hours about such labeling, so it’s nice when producers like Ian Place come around to appease the dance snobs. With a catalogue of true deep cuts, Ian Place sheds light on the potential the current “deep" house craze has on influencing young producers. For every kid falling into the cliche of sampling [insert classic R&B group's] vocals, turning the BPM down to 123, and adding a cheesy sax solo and calling it “deep,” there are guys like Ian Place who are contributing to the house that’s actually been around for longer than the past year. Browse Ian Place’s catalogue below.
