Artist Vernon Douglas
Title Werk it EP
Remixer Jordan Peak
Deepen Sound 001
After 5 years on hiatus the Deepen crew returns with the relaunch of the label.
For our first steps back, Vernon Douglas brings his A game with sounds fresh from his analog dungeon.
Vernon Douglas, a DJ residing in Vancouver with over 20 years experience as the main resident of the infamous Deepen parties. Parties which developed Vancouver talent, as well as bringing in some of the most exciting acts from all corners of the earth.
His studio is comprised of an amazing array of analog gear, real 303's,808s, outboard keyboards, none of this digital shit here.
Vernon's raw sound on "Werk It" goes right back to the acid jack itself, a raw pulsating 303, fat Juno 106 chords,some 808 and 909 drums and the rawness is unleashed. On the flip track Grow, we get deeper and the music gets more melodic.This is a perfect track for the mornings,when the witching hour nears and the vibe is thick. Last but not least Jordan Peak brings forth a weapon to destroy dance floors and leave them ravaged, what else could we write about such a remix done by one of the hottest new names in house music.
