The 12 Best Deep House Songs


The times, they are a-changing, and deep house has taken the mainstream by storm over the last year. I don’t want no music snobs coming and telling me deep house has been around since the 1980s, these are the twelve best deep house songs for 2013.

12. Jagged Edge – Eats Everything

This is your starter for 10. No big drops, no obnoxious tonal shifts, just an incessant beat.

11. Maliblue – Darius

The French producer welcomes in the sun with some feel-good, summer house.

10. It’s Not Enough (feat. Janai) – Dusky

Dusky takes deep house to a place few are able to, one where it finds emotional resonance within and it’s constant structure. This is deep, deep house (get it?).

9. All The Right Moves – Outboxx

The Bristol duo come up with an easy going house track with some lovely ambient melodies.

8. In My Arms – Karma Kid

But deep house can get far more colourful than Outboxx as boy wonder Karma Kid proves with his unbelievably fun summer anthem.

7. You’re Gonna Miss Me (Ejeca Remix) – Turntable Orchestra

Driving disco beats and a looping cry of “I have you” makes this a fitting club jam wherever you are.

6. I Can Tell (By The Way You Move) – George Fitzgerald

This better come out soon but a Boiler Room rip of George Fitzgerald’s best song yet will have to do. You need this at your gym!

5. More Than Me – Eliphino

It’s pointless me trying to explain this when the description does it better. More Than Me “reconstitutes elements of tranced-out ’90s House, Garage and electronica in one ‘floor-owning piece of slow 2-step melancholy.”

4. You (feat. Ejeca) – Bicep

Tension between Bicep’s kicks and the fluttering vocals boils over as the song draws to its conclusion, creating a real cinematic drama befitting of Hanz Zimmer score.

3. Through Motion – Midland

Midland should be on everyone’s deep house map. Through Motion is a clear illustration why, it’s dark tone contrasts beautifully with it’s expressive beat.

2. Nightmares (Hackman Remix) – Eli & Fur

Hackman is a straight up god of a producer. He turns Eli & Fur’s one-dimensional electro into a multi-layered centrepiece for his talents. If only Cyril Hahn would copy Hackman.. it’s called nuance Cyril!

1. Close – Hackman

And here is the ultimate proof. What Hackman does with Alicia Keys’ No One is incomprehensibly unique. Deep House at its most transportive(a word?), it is a massive factor in what drove me to the genre in the first place.

BONUS: Jasmine (Demo) – Jai Paul

Can we really call Jai Paul any genre? Trust me if we could, I would. But we can’t, Jai Paul’s genre is Jai Paul. But it has elements of Deep House so I thought I would chuck the magnificent Jasmine in here, before he releases what will most definitely be a mind-boggling début LP later this year.
