Those great grooves out of Europe keep coming this summer as house music, aided by sampled compositions, continue to dominate the surveys. Credit it under as many sub-categories as you wish: deep house, electro house, handbag house, etc.: it’s whatever gets people onto the floor and swaying to the beat. Here are two more releases to check out, and they keep it “deep”, to the point that both are out the same week. How deep is their love? I really need to learn and so do you too. Here we are then:
FERRECK DAWN & REDONDO – “Love Too Deep”
Label: 3 Beat/Spinnin’ / Release Date: August 11
Sometimes, it’s all about collaboration, and this one’s certainly got many layers to it. Holland-based producer Dawn mixes it up with the Netherlands duo on this single, sampling both Keyshia Cole‘s “Shoulda Let You Go” and an absolute dance classic, “Show Me Love” from Robin S. “Deep” may have been pushed back two weeks from in its initial July 28 date, but the hot track is already in the top 100 on Shazam in the U.K. and is looking forward to a lofty debut on the charts once it’s released in August. Some may say that it comes to soon after SecondCity‘s “I Wanna Feel”; less than two months ago, the song went onto the Singles Chart at #1 and was heavily based around a loop of Toni Braxton‘s “You’re Makin’ Me High”. However, this very much stands on its own, and the reaction thus far from both tagging and streaming of the music video is extremely encouraging. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it just debuted on my personal chart this week. Be on the lookout for it.
JAX JONES – “Go Deep”
Label: Blasé Boys Club / Release Date: August 11
If you’re familiar with Duke Dumont, then you probably know who Jones is. Earlier this year, he served as the featured guest and producer on a former U.K. #1 tune, “I Got U”. It also topped the U.S. based Hot Dance/Club Play chart in June. The vocalist on that and “Deep” is Kelli-Leigh Henry-Davila; she also performed the female lead on the aforementioned “I Wanna Feel” and provides background vocals on a track on Iggy Azalea‘s The New Classic. She’s certainly getting lots of attention, and when it comes to this latest release, I hope that momentum keeps on building. Sampling a piece of the 1998 single by Janet Jackson, also titled “Go Deep”, Jones’s single is a nice and chilled-out summer cut that’s ready for some serious action on the radio and in the clubs… at least in Europe. Given the familiarity of the names, this should start to lift off sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, you can catch Jones enjoying the sun and playing the occasional set over in Ibiza.
