What does the quality "deep" mean for you in music

Hey guys!
I've always been wondering about the etymology of deep house. What does it actually mean and how did people start to give it that name. And what is it that make people call it "deep"?
i hope, that here i can finally get some new idea's about it

this is not a very specific question, i just wondered what you guys think makes music deep and i hope this will turn out to give us all a little better understanding of how others understand the word deep. This is really difficult since everybody uses the word and there is no unified understanding...

thanks and have a great day!

Re: What does the quality "deep" mean for you in music

Off the top of my head, I think of deep house as slower, darker, sparser, rougher, more weird sounds and generally more "out there"

That very well might be wrong. I'm not that good with genre stuff

Opposite of a banger. Minor key. No drop. Generally more subtle.

edit: this is more specific to deep house...but still kinda applies to the so-called "deep" genres in electronic music...

Re: What does the quality "deep" mean for you in music

for me deep has 2 meanings

1. Something that is big, wide, warm, and atmospheric

2. Something musically complex, has a greater meaning, great sound design, and/or someone who is doing something beyond the typical in his or her area

I agree with this.
To me, something deep is thorough and profound.
And actually, a lot of music labelled "deep" might not really be that.
You have to actually listen a bit to verify and be sure.

Yea.. But this guy is asking about deep house, not your personal definition.

Apologies for snippage, I just wanted to home in on this part, though the rest of the post explains it further. From the wording, its not House specific.

Re: What does the quality "deep" mean for you in music

to me, it means something that takes its time to develop. steady and hypnotic. possibly sparse, where the low end is very prominent and high end is pushed more in the background. or there's a lot of space left in the mix for big reverbs. where atmosphere is more important than a hook or some big lead melody (which are mostly absent).

if we take dubstep, for example. here's a track i would consider to be deep:


and here's one that i wouldn't:


arghh. sorry.

i guess you're right. I was focusing on the "I've always been wondering about the etymology of deep house. What does it actually mean and how did people start to give it that name." part of the question.

Really this is two quesitons..

what does it mean to you?

and

what is the etymology of it?



A little bit confusing as these are kind of unrelated.
