Various (Tin Man, Derek Carr…) – Volume 1 (WGD001)
We’re Going Deep is a new label run by an old head – Paul Wise aka Placid, born out of a lifelong affair with the many shades of deep electronic music and a thirst for collecting records since 1989.
Rather than staying too hung up on the past, the label’s mission is to release new music for the dance floor, your front room or even just your headphones. If you’ve come across the We’re Going Deep forum – you’ll know all about the journey and the collective digging that goes deep into Acid, Electro, Techno, Deep House and even the odd foray into downtempo territory.
Kicking things off in style, Volume 1 is a four track ep made by four brilliant artists. First up, a legend in the 303 business, Tin Man drops an up-front 303 workout as he takes a large slice of ‘88 influence and delivers a jam packed full of purist panache. Next up, Derek Carr brings his own unique sound of warm detroitesque techno, replete with catchy electronic hooks that draw you in and stick in your head for weeks. On the flipside, close friend and fellow TB-303 enthusiast Posthuman delves deep into his box of tricks. Keeping the acid to the bare minimum on his contribution, he provides an epically deep slice of melancholia led by beautiful chords that keep everything moving. Last but not least, Dircsen slows everything right down and takes us on a journey of pure 303 bliss that will delight newcomers and old heads alike.
