Deep House Music:
Deep House is a sub-genre of house music that fuses elements of USA house into the 80s jazz-funky and touches of soul music. Deep House In the early compositions (1988—89), influences of jazz music were most frequently brought out by using more complex chords than simple triads which are held for many bars and give compositions a slightly dissonant feel. Later deep house tracks (1993—94) were also heavily influenced by disco and even merged into a disputable disco house genre.
The use of vocals became more common in deep house than in many other forms of house music. Sonic qualities include soulful vocals, slow and concentrated dissonant melodies, smooth, stylish, and chic demeanor.
Deep house music rarely reaches a climax, but lingers on as a comfortable relaxing sound, with or without vocals.
Popular record labels of the genre include Giant Step Records, Naked Music, Om Records, and Peacefrog Records. Examples of deep house albums from artists known from other genres include 1990's The Martyr Mantras and 1998's Modernism: A New Decade from The Style Council.
