Raw Cuts Vol.1

DJ Deep

Deeply Rooted House
DRH059 | 2019-07-05  
French house and techno icon DJ Deep is back on his Deeply Rooted label with his first solo material in two years for the first volume of Raw Cuts.Cyril Etienne has been shaping house and techno in his own unique style for the last 20 years. Known for his meticulous taste and devoted to unearthing house that is true to its roots but also forward thinking, he mixes up human warmth and dance floor drive with a real sense of soul and atmosphere. This new series is about instinctive tracks for the club, and all four of them make a real mark.Mindshift is a deep and cathartic, mid-tempo house track with pillowy kicks and balmy pads making for an inviting late night atmosphere. Its classic DJ Deep, but so is Mandrum Main, which takes things into techno territories - driving forward using punchy drum programming and icy hi hats for a perfectly hypnotic combination.On the flip, Progression hits hard. Electrified synths slither next to barreling drums and the whole track races along at an arresting pace as incendiary hi hats add to the pressure. Last of all, Mandrum Dub is a paired down drum track that exudes analogue warmth and is a masterfully reductive house track that really packs a powerful punch.

wicked, can't wait to check these. thanks

always been a fan...


Yes yes! Not often I go for a Main over a Dub but Mandrum is the one! Fine line between classic stripped back stuff and futuristic freshness... love trax like this that can straddle both depending on context. Big up Cyril, hope you're well mate

AVION (Crossing)

Great one. Love the wonderful sluggish and deep atmoshere of Mindshift. Wonderful production. The reduced feeling in the Mandrum Dub is a perfect tool weapon for each situation. Love it and will play for sure. Thanx to DJ Deep and Deeply Rooted for your music.
