It's Not That Deep, But It Should Please Those That Just Like House Music
on 11 November 2014
Pure Deep House is a 3cd set that throws in what it regards as the very best in deep house and garage. I can't agree with it's title wholeheartedly, as it's track selection is all over the place in terms of house styles. Deep house has always been a more underground, spacier sounding genre to what's on offer here. There's a few tracks that could probably be classed as being in the deeper vibe to everything else that's being mixed here, but you'll be hearing alot of more mainstream house than what's regarded as "deep". Especially those that are more familiar with listening to deep house in it's true form.
I can't help but feel that the "best of" and "pure" wording is "purely" for marketing and sale desirability. Fortunately the quality of sound, mixing and track choices are good enough to make it a solid house collective, but if you're looking for the best in pure, deep house then you may be better off looking elsewhere.
