What is Deep House?
Deep house is a subgenre of house music which takes its root Chicago house with jazz-funk and soul music. Deep house tracks tempo is usually between 120 and 125 beats per minute but DJ 340MPS has a predilection for 127 BMP ever since his collaboration with DJ AO. Deep house music often incorporates an acoustic feeling and DJ 340MPS is very intent on adding as many soulful female vocalists as he can put his spinning fingers on. This style of house can be recognized by its complex melody, use of unrelated chromatic chords underlying most sequences, and a soul, ambient, or lounge vibe to the vocals. These vocals became more common in deep house than in many other forms of house music. Sonic qualities include soulful vocals slow and a smooth, stylish, and chic demeanor. Deep house music rarely reaches a climax, but lingers on as a comfortable, relaxing sound.
