Essential Deep Session #11 (2024)

The week is split in half. And I'm working from home. That means: speaker volume on max, and something nice to listen to. I could have played the usual: harder style mixes. But I woke up today, wanting something more 'mellow' and chilled. The obvious choice would be to listen to Jazz, but I'm not feeling that mellow just yet. Maybe something similar, as in being extremely chill, but a bit more groovy, a bit more House-y? There we go, found the answer. Deep House. And that's what I've been listening to from the second I woke up this morning.

Looking back at that decision, to listen to a Deep House mix, was a good decision. I am now here, sitting behind my laptop, extremely chilled. Nothing in the world that can harm me. I feel utter bliss. And that's the power of Deep House. It takes you to a happy place you never want to leave. And my happy place is a cocktail bar in Greece, where they would play this music. I close my eyes and I'm sitting there, enjoying the nice Summer breeze, with a nice cocktail in one hand, and in the other, a few crisps. Life could not be any better.

I don't follow the scene that much, so I'm not familiar with all the artists involved. So apologies in advance for not knowing any of the songs in this mix, or the DJ who made this mix. I found it because someone reposted it. The mix, as you can see from the image above, was made by NiDeX, and it's the eleventh instalment. Not heard or seen the previous ones, I go straight into this eleventh edition, with an open mind, and a very rested mind. The set is an hour long, but what can you expect?

  1. Dot Tap - Lets Get Higher (Original Mix)

  2. Aquadeep & Veesoul - Tell Me What You Want (Original Mix)

  3. Hurlee - Silence

  4. Klaus Veen - Native Sounds

  5. Mark Hawkins - The Phoenix Part 1

  6. CEV's - Living In A Dream (Zetbee Remix)

  7. Tenobi - What You Need (Richard Earnshaw Revision)

  8. Ruff Stuff - Still Warm

  9. Din Jay - Good Inside

  10. Retromigration - Don't Get Burned

A very short tracklist, and all the names are unknown to me. And when I say all of them, I do mean it. Not a single name rings a bell in my head. It's nice to hear new stuff, and in a way a blessing, as it keeps me focussed, and interested in music that's out there, that I haven't discovered yet. And there's a shit ton out there for me to discover. But until then, let's focus on this mix.

NiDeX made this mix, and it's a good, solid mix. An hour long, and the finest, grooviest anthems you could find. This will surely put a smile on your face, and makes you want to go to your happy place. I feel so relaxed, I could just go back to sleep. I'm not going to, but I could.

Carefully mixed together, you get a wonderful hour long mix. And I can only give appreciation to the man who made this mix. A solid hour, which has been on repeat since 6am. I loved this mix from the first time I listened to it in its entirety, and even now, after the fifth play, I'm still finding this mix awesome. Worth a listen.

And it's got a very soulful song in here I like. 'What You Need'. What I need, is that song on repeat!

I'll definitely check out the other 10 editions. If they are as good as this one, I will be a very happy bunny!
