A quick glance into the genre...
The genre of deep house stemmed from generic house, sometime in between the 80s and the 90s, and was characterized by its melodious nature, as it had influences of both jazz and soul, and a slightly acoustic feeling. It is mostly recognized as the slower, more intense dance floor music, as it combines vocals and synth sounds, and has a more sophisticated feel to it. Rather than the out-of-world nature and build-up of house tracks, deep house music lingers on. This genre has gained more popularity in the recent years.
A step away from mainstream house (that is, the kind of music heard more often on the radio or in public places), deep house is enjoyed by EDM aficionados with a refined palate. On the other hand, the genre has been evolving as well as seeing an increasing in fan following steadily since its inception in the mid-80s/early 90s. Deep house reminds one of classic disco, and combines influences of Chicago house and retro-funk.

Today, artists like Miguel Migs, Fish Go Deep, and Ananda Project, are recurring names in the music circles. We have compiled a list of our favorite, most beloved deep house songs.

This was the list of our favorite deep house tracks. Deep house is a genre that sparks a lot of debate because of its close resemblance to soulful house, and also because a new audience often tends to mistake any house song with warm bass notes to be deep house. However, since the genre itself is maturing, it is a discussion that does not have a clear outcome. If you enjoyed these tracks, or you wish to add to the list, please feel free to comment.
