I just got a project for varsity: I have to remix a famous 80s rock song as a deep house track.
Now, I'm pretty sure I've never heard deep house in my life. I listen to alternative rock, trip-hop, weird avant-garde shit... Dance music is not my thing.
So what I'm humbly asking for is this: introduce me to deep house! From reading Wikipedia, I understand the genre peaked in the mid-90s, and found a second wind in the past decade. I'd love to hear very 'safe', typical examples of what constitutes deep house. I want the artists who are to deep house what Led Zeppelin are to rock, what Burial is to dubstep, what Hans Zimmer is to film music.
Any help here is massively appreciated!
