Deeplay Vaults Volume One


Deeplay Music is proud to present the first release in our new series...DEEPLAY VAULTS. The idea behind the new series is to present to our fans an evolving project that will showcase four different artists...each exhibiting their own unique musical vision.

From the vault comes:

Baeka is the lo-fi master of Scandinavia. With influences ranging from Nick Holder to Theo Parrish, the "Soul Exp" highlights these influences, but in Beka's own musical space. Big support from Ian Pooley.
Physics, the main act on Deeplay needs no further introduction. Step into the realm of Physics and enjoy their "Phused" vibe, a funk-fusion track with rap!
John Dahlbäck, a man shaping the future. "Wonder" is a stripped down funky deep house track that glides effortlessly over mellow synths and luscious chords. He is actually the cousin of the world famous Jesper Dahlbäck.
Martinez is a soul trapped in the cosmic regions of soul. “Next Horizon" is a Tom Middleton-ish cosmic-spacey-funky track...5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and we have lift off.

Reviews :

Jon Freer (Blues & Soul)
Swedish purveyors of the most soul-touching and satisfying deeper grooves, Deeplay have some incredibly talented producers on their books. This release brings together some of their star artists on one slice of vinyl. Baeka's "Soul Exp" sees high spirited keys, smiling strings and inquisitive vocals combine on a lively journey. John Dahlbäck's "Wonder" is a minimal yet attention holding techier outing, with sharp percussion, penetrating synths and magical digitised keys. The incredibly talented Martinez contributes "New Horizon", a hypnotising spaced-out key journey, whilst "Phused" by Physics is a frosted bass offering with all manner of vocal touches. 4/5

Dean Thatcher (Dmc Update)
Four different cuts from four different artists on this 12", the first in the Deeplay Vaults series. Scandinavia's Baeka kicks things off with the beautiful summer sound of "Soul Exp", a very floaty & airy vocal experience, built on a percussive groove with some nice key licks. The other cuts come from Physics, John Dahlback & Martinez. 4/5
