Boomkat Product Review:
On his debut release, producer/DJ Deeper Kez treads his own path around the fringe of the ‘floor; taking us by the hand from ambient-feathered garage house with On The Viaduct to frayed tropical house in Taino’s Groove, a gauzy stroke of Co La-like boogie-dub in Body Ache (feat. Mariah), and tender vibes reminding of Galcher Lustwerk in American Street, finished with a flourish of infectious uptempo aces such as CDO Palms, the filter funk of Jack’s Famous and Deeper Kenz. Summertime, check!
“Wayfaring American producer / DJ Deeper Kenz named his project in homage to the “cinematically intense” Northeast Philly hood where he resided intermittently for nearly eight years. Surrounded by dive bars and decrepit lots, he turned inward and crafted a set of recordings “designed as tools to light up a small but intimate community of dancers and lovers.” The A side skews lean and linear, crisp percussion laced with shaded bass and violet textures, while the flip goes more mirror ball delirium, sweat and heat and disco samples “chained up and grooving to the unceasing rhythms of the big city machine.” Indulge, internalize; motion is meaning. Recorded in Kensington, Philadelphia, 2013-2016.”
