About the compilation:
"The latest lush mix from the resurgent House Afrika label is selected and sequenced by Lars Behrenroth, one of a few established international DJ/producers who are helping to spread the gospel of deep South African house music across the globe.%u2028%u2028German-born and LA-based, Lars has a wide view of the wickedest in the house music world, and %u2013 along with the likes of Louie Vega, Andy Compton, Ralf GUM, Rocco, AtJazz and Boddhi Satva %u2013 he%u2019s seriously attuned to the ever-more awesome beats being brewed up on Africa%u2019s tip.
His debut SA-exclusive mix showcases the increasingly Afro-centric leanings of the international dance set, sweepingly matching material from the aforementioned Rocco, Boddhi Satva and AtJazz with funk flair tailored by this country%u2019s brightest production prospects, such as Kagiso %u2018Kaygee%u2019 Pitsong, Cuebur with Nathan X, and Da Capo (who recently impressed with a killer reworking of Andy Compton).
%u201CDeeper Shades%u201D has been Lars%u2019 trademark tag in his 20 years plus at the top of the dance game: his %u2018Deeper Shades Recordings%u2019 is the source of all thirteen cuts on this CD, which shares a name with his %u2018Deeper Shades of House%u2019 radio show. Closing in on 400 episodes, this weekly deep-cast has featured guest sets from the likes of Vinny Da Vinci, Jimpster, Nick Holder and Essential-I.
The phrase "Deeper Shades" is also the most apt summation of Lars%u2019 overall approach to dance music: that it should be deeply moving, all enveloping and soul expanding. Deep Afro-house is currently ticking all of these boxes.
The disc also includes no less than four, floor-stealing efforts from Behrenroth himself, and everything%u2019s loving laced together into a splendid showcase that demonstrates the deep links between established US and European beat-technicians and new African know-how.
In other words, it%u2019s hotness personified."
