Mother land heat from Deep London
Hot off the heels of their fantastic Miami Sampler debut EP earlier this year, Deep London continue to gather momentum with a scorching ‘Afro Sampler EP’ fresh for the summer dancefloors! Getting the booty shakin’ party started is former Fela Kuti cohort Dele Sosimi with the incredibly catchy ‘Turbulant Times’, ripe with an incessant brass hook and sunkissed beats with an ‘Ingroove Dub Remix’ from Deep London’s Stan-ley. In addition Stan-ley teams up with Dele Sosimi who sings on the hypnotic rhythmic groove ‘Atide’ (meaning ‘Here We Are’), which comes in the shape of a deep flavoured mix from Melchyor A and a twisted dark ‘Deep Tech Remix’ from DJ Garphie. Rounding off the package, Italian drummer and percussion guru, Stefano Cestra collaborates with Stan-ley on the irresistible ‘Amandla Awhetu’ (meaning ‘The Power Is Ours), laced with a beautiful guitar solo, live drums and cheeky brass stabs which ride over a mean bass hook on ‘Stan-ley’s Deep London Dub Remix’.

Deep London club nights were spawned from a meeting of 2 DJ minds across a London dancefloor when Australian expat Johnny Kaz and French/West Indian Stan-ley took it upon themselves to create a party where they could share their love for Deep and Soulful house with the Capital’s masses. Deep London launched in 2007 with great success showcasing the creme de la creme of house jocks including Dennis Ferrer, Franck Roger, Alix Alvarez and The Martinez Brothers (UK Debut) among many others.. March 2009 saw the launch of Deep London Records with their debut ‘Miami EP’ featuring tracks Candy Apple ft Anjou ‘Leaving You’, Deep Y’all Aka DJ Rico ‘Building Of Deep’, Africa Got Soul ft Abavuki ‘Papa Was a Rolling Stone’ and Stan-ley ‘Love Me Or Leave Me’, which gained huge support from the house music fraternity worldwide and reached number 10 on Traxsource’s chart.

“Deep London – Afro Sampler EP – My 2 favs are Atide ( melchyor’s hmida version) and Amandla Awhetu ( dj stan-ley deep london dub ). I’ll rock theses both in my sets for sure. Nothing like that afro beat music”

Shannon Harris (Chicago)

My two favorites from this EP are:

3- STAN-LEY & DELE SOSIMI – ATIDE (DJ GARPHIE DEEP TECH REMIX)

“This one seems to crawl through your skin as soon as you hear the first beat. I think it commands an instant dance floor response.”

4- STAN-LEY & STEFANO CESTRA – AMANDLA AWHETU (DJ STAN-LEY DEEP LONDON DUB MIX)

I love the percussion and guitar on this too. It has a afro-beat/jazz appeal to it. Definitely something that would fit my AROMA nites in Chicago.”

Martin East (Kapa Music LA)

“Love the DJ Stan-ley London Dub Mix – George Benson guitar very nice touch.

Garphie’s Deep Tech will definitely be getting a spin out at Mundial my club night.

Atide – Melchyor’s mix is my fav’ – This is one for the Mundial Radio Show – Super set of tracks.”

Yass

“This mix : Atide (Melchyor A’s Hmida Version) is wicked!!! Really like the fiesta afro vibe!”

Sy Sez (Soul Heaven – AphroDisiax)

“Wicked little EP from my friend Johnny Kaz at Deep London…Lovin Stan-leys afro-esque sound. This one will be firmly in my wallet, ready for the summer parties….”

Tony Touch

Fabio Genito

“Very cool package! Will support for sure!”

Suge Transitions

“Coming from Africa myself, I must say the spirit of my land is captured in this ep… Turbulent Times – Ones of the tracks that capture north/west African style , beauty right here. Atide – Well Im gonna biased regarding Garphie’s mix , cause honestly that is a tunes after my own heart…That’s the sound I ‘d played live to all deep tech lovers.. Melchyor’s mix is wicked too.

Amandla Awhetu : who ever played the guitar is a monster..Stan made a true hit with that… This is an awesome one by Deep London I totally love this EP , a must have.”

Halo

“Stan-ley & Dele Sosimi – Atide(Melchyor A’s H) is the track for me, played it last night good sound..”

Atjazz

“Turbulent Times (Stan-ley’s Ingroove Dub Mix) is just awesome !”

Pablo Martinez

“DJ Garphie Deep Tech Remix, will be supporting this heavily.”

Nico De Ceglia

“My favourites are Atide remixed by DJ Garphie and Amandla Awhetu. Well done!!”

Vincent Kwok

“The stan-ley deep dub is the one for me. Nice jazzy guitar solo with a george benson vibe. Great for warmups”

Kiko Navarro

“Here are some nice afrogrooves, favourite mix is Atide (Melchyor A’s Hmida Version)”

Oli Lazarus (Papa Records)

“Very cool ep. Thanks for this.. will support 4 sure!!!”

DJ Chilly (Miami)

– Turbulent Times

“The dirty, raw and primal sounds of this track are immediately captivating.

The track is simple but effective. At times the horns sound a bit too

repetitive but as a whole the track does work. The build is nice, the

chanting is cool and I am liking the evolution of Stan-ley.”

– Atide (Melchyor A¹s Hmida Version)

“I do like this track. It glides along effortlessly while maintaining its

essential groove. The vocal drops and scat gives the track a unique

signature. Though not easy to categorize, it will work in different

settings.”

– Atide (DJ Garphie Deep Tech Remix)

“We like this mix too; very fun, very bouncey, very funky. Nice breakdown.

This one¹s a keeper too.”

– Amandala Awhetu

“Gimme lots of percussion and I¹m probably half way in. Throw in a bit of

funk and that¹s all she wrote for me. While the intro is very strong, the

remainder of track flattens out rather than deliver on the lovely set up.”

Gavin Mills (Copyright)

“Love the Turbulent Times track, that’s the winner on the package for me ……. Cool osibisa style horns and wicked beats can definitely use this one.”

Christos Kedras (Kapa Music)

“Different in a good way. Turbulent Times has a “new latinaires” flair and Melchyor’s Atide a nice lazy vibe, both are great for my more loungey sets. Also liking Amandla Awhetu. Overall a strong & interesting package. Supporting.”

Ralf Gum

“All 4 are nice groovy tracks. My fav is: 4 Amandla Awhetu (DJ Stan-ley Deep London Dub Mix) . Played it a few times.”
