Ethnic and transgressing, Maga’s set for Getting Deeper’s 105th podcast is a sensual fusion of oriental, tribal and intricate sounds. It’s a stunning deep, downtempo mix that will give you a glimpse of the artist’s soul and an emotional experience of the various corners of the world and their deeply embedded roots.

We are excited to celebrate our 100th number in the podcast series with Daniel Zuur’s new moniker – Kraut. The set is a slow, dubbed down fusion of sounds falling within a wide spectrum of electronic music. Emotional, tribal, exotic, and historical, Kraut’s set is a rare genre by itself. His set is a story not for everyone, but touching for those who connect with it. Enjoy.
We’re pleased to showcase two very talented homegrown artists going by the name of Burudu for Getting Deeper’s 98th set. Their sound is certainly something we don’t find much in this country, but it has found a solid place in GD’s sound universe. Unbound by genre orthodoxy, Burudu’s music is a subtle exploration of styles from the past, present and the future. It is a nostalgic blend of deep, downtempo sounds, dusty jazz and a post-rock attitude. Their set for GD itself is a stunning journey of multiple aural trips crafted harmonically and authentically. We love it.
On our premiere series today we have a hauntingly beautiful downtempo sound called ‘In The Dark’ by Just Her on Constant Circles. Melancholic and emotive, ‘In The Dark’ has the ability to take you to timeless, nostalgic spaces.
‘In The Dark’ will be released in the EP ‘Let Myself Go’ by the label Constant Circles on 1st April, 2016.

Next up on our premiere series is an emotional and melancholic downtempo sound called ‘Immerse’ by India’s Burudu. The track is a lovely companion to rainy, evening drives. Enjoy.
A mindblowing, penetrating post-downtempo jazz track that will take you to another dimension. By Floating points.
We begin a new series on Getting Deeper called ‘Under The Radar,’ where we will feature some of our favorite artists on this website. Welcome Berlin based Luca Musto – a recent discovery, but a fresh one at that! Fresh… why? Well, before we begin on that… we urge you to hit play.
Are you listening? Because that’s what we call a warm and fuzzy sound. Luca’s music is a rare find. Not that we haven’t come across jazzy & lush deep-downtempo music, the truth is that it is extremely hard to locate. There aren’t many artists who consistently deliver this kind of deep but soul warming music, full of dusty jazz and beautiful, smooth vibes.
In fact, we can’t remember any… apart from a few gems here and there – individual tracks that have been treasured forever but come out rarely from the artists we so wish to here them from. If you like this music, then you will know the rarity of it. You will know what we are talking about.
Now that all’s said and done (we hope), let’s shift the focus back on Luca. Luca has soul, man. I know we have already stressed on that, but we can’t stress enough. This man’s class. He is talented. He is mature. He is creamy.
‘Amalv,’ for example, is a bit of a shift from his usual jazzy funk, but it is soulful nevertheless. That is what we call talent… and good talent in sound usually ain’t genre specific. You’ve got to have a feel for it… and as long as the technical knowledge is in place, you can extend those fingerprints far and wide. Period.
Heard this edit in Silicone Soul‘s “Subculture Summer Mix.” Loved it, and spent hours trying to look for it. Finally found this lovely track today on Hype Machine, released on Sei A‘s page.
Downtempo, soothing and soul warming. We’re in love.
And it is for free download 🙂
“Comment Revoir Oursinet?” by Sebastien Tellier, remixed by Darius is a beautiful interpretation of Tellier himself… which is impressive because despite transforming the sound, Darius has retained Tellier’s essence. He has transformed Tellier’s track into an underwater sound with deep seated breakdowns, echoing vocals and ambient sounscapes. The end result is a sublime concoction. Stunning.
