20 mellow house grooves

1st January 2019

I’ve been freshening up my music collection with some choice cuts of house music. In choosing these I wasn’t too fussed about musical categories, but I think that most of them could be broadly described as ‘deep house’. What I was most strongly drawn to was music that had a sparseness, an understated quality, but was never too bleak, too monotone, too industrial. Music that had a good groove, but also had soul and beauty to it. I’ve not counted, but I’m pretty sure that the majority of the songs have female vocals.
