    Hi my name is Jr and i'm a houseaholic

    Hi, i am a thirty-something italian guy that spends most of the time playing for fun.
    I am a synth lover (due to an electronic background as a dj) but i love also samples (hip hop taught me how sampling can be artistic and creative). I am not a purist, i love contaminations and even tough i recognize the warmth of vinyl (and i love it!) i am happy also with digital formats and emulations. Ableton Live is my main daw and i have the strange habit to use only one synth at time, so now i am using U-He ACE for every task. I choose to use only one synth so i have to master it from top to bottom, understanding how it works and appreciating his possibilities. Ok, i think i wrote enough: did i mention that i am not a fluent english speaker? Have fun, peace out.

    Well, I've introduced myself before but since I'm barely on here....

    I'm a 'grasshopper' of sorts within the deep house community...I started listening to it last year and its been really inspiring my music lately (I do music production/songwriting on the side by the way). I'm originally from Virginia, but made the move to Cali to pursue music and/or the entertainment industry as a career...still working at it! haha!

    My DAW of choice is FL Studio (been using it off and on since 2006, got serious with it in 2008), but I'm learning Ableton Live right now so I can start doing some live performances and DJing (which I'm planning on learning how to do). I'm also a fan of hip hop, R&B, nu-jazz, acid jazz, funk, and disco; I like to mix these genres together with my newfound music.

    I'm currently working on an EP (which is part of a 4-part saga) titled 'Music & Wine', which is inspired by the the Blue Six single. Its a mixture of deep house, acid jazz, nu-jazz, chillout lounge, hip hop, and R&B (which is ultimately where my music is going here on out). As soon as I get some free time I'll start back on it

    Hello people!

    I've just registered on Deephouse page, even though I used to go there to find some information. I'm from south of France and music is everything for me. I've been producing on Reason and Ableton for 2 years now, to create especially warm house music and some darker techno. Im just starting to learn how to DJ, but what I love is composing.

    Now you know some more about me!

    Cheers

    Greetings DHP Fam:

    I joined DHP because everytime I'd hear a hook in the street, radio, or club and google it, the results repeatedly pointed to a DHP post.

    I am an engineer by trade, and compose/remix for fun.

    My first gear was a clarinet, Mattel Synsonic Drums, Casio SK1, Korg Poly 800. Now I'm a microphone fiend.

    I was at Jack The Rapper when Tupac and Luke were throwin bottles and killing hip hop.

    I love house in all its glory.

    Vaughan Mason is my hero. Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamp.

    Please check out my first laptop remix of pianist Robert Glasper and Mint Condition's Stokley performing "Why Do We Try."

    Hey yall.

    My name's Miles, been making computer-based music for over 6 years, and I love the house sounds.

    I came here from the KVR forums, where I got tired of people asking over and over how to make avicci this, allesso that, all this bigroom stuff. I caint take it no mo. I need to know I'm talking to some people who have got the ear for soul, funk, and jazz.

    Over the years, I spent a lot of focus on synthesis technique, but nowadays I see that I really love the sound of sampling old records. You can't get that sound except by sampling old records.

    I didn't know a solid forum for proper house existed till I saw this place. It looks old, looks like it's got history. I look forward to seeing what goes on around here.

    Hey Peeps,

    I'm Ben Cenac, also known as Cozmo D from the group Newcleus. I started spinning Disco at the age of 16 in 1976 (my original name was Cozmo Disco) and was among the first wave of Hip-Hop street DJs in Brooklyn in 1977 with my crew Jam-On Productions. In 1980 I bought my first synth and drum machine and started making electronic music. We released our first single as Newcleus in 1983. 2 years, 2 albums, many singles, tours and side projects and not a damn dollar in royalties later... we stepped off from the crooks and started producing and releasing our own shit. We did our first independent production in 1986 and our first release on our own label in 1987.

    In '87 we did our first House track, but David Ogrin, who was mixing it for us, convinced me to change the drums to make it a Freestyle track. "House is just a fad" he told me. The man has great ears but he gave me some bad advice. My mistake for listening. We released our first House track in '88, then in '89 I parted ways with my production partner Bob "Chilly B" Crafton and started doing House exclusively for the next 4 years. My biggest successes were Sha-Lor, Push/Pull and Dream 2 Science. Then, in '92, I was hit with the triple whammy of a fire at my house, our distributor going under with no notice owing us money and with our product on their floor, and my business partner getting a real job.

    For the next decade I tried in vain to produce Rap acts and get them on with not much success. Then interest in Newcleus began to pick up again so we started doing shows, and I started getting back into producing my own shit. I have never lost my love for House music but it was Electro paying the bills. I started lurking here every now and then in an attempt to keep up with the scene. Then, when interest in my House music started to rekindle I figured it was time that I got back into it. I finally decided to register and start participating, so here I am.

    Technical stuff... I use Logic Pro 9 on an 8 core Mac Pro with softsynths. I still have plenty of hardware but I haven't used it in some time. I have never been a purist, I am only concerned with the ends rather than the means, and as far as I'm concerned many of todays softsynths are leaps and bounds ahead of the capabilities of even the greatest analog synths.

    Hope that wasn't too long-winded y'all, but it's been a long journey. Glad to be here!

    Whatupdoe? Hi, my names Simon and I come from Liverpool, UK. Moodymann is probably my biggest house music hero. I've done plenty of messing around making music over the last 15 years, progressing from cool edit to cubase to fruity loops to ableton. My latest bit of fun is building up a computer free hardware studio around an MPC 2000. My musical styles are varied but at the moment I'm mostly making slow house with hip hop type drum sounds sampled from vinyl and lush detroit type synths. I've never really been happy with the music I make but I still enjoy it and want to improve my skills.

    Hello,
    I'm Crackhouse (formerly known as IdanceTooMuch), I'm a french guy living in Belgium.
    I fell in techno and house in the beginning of the 90's when the first raves hitted the hexagon.

    I've been working on a MPC 2000 in the 90's with no results, now on reason for some years but I'm not happy with the results. I'm considering buying NI Maschine in a couple of months.
    I like all kind of music, my favorite department being hypnotic freak 5 AM techno and house, but if I listen to Jazz, Hip Hop, Punk or Deep, it has to be raw and unique (I can find this in "soft" music aswell - ambient for eg.).

    I like to give my thoughts about tracks people would gratefully post here for constructive criticism. I don't like to put people down even if I don't like their sound, I respect anyone pulling a track or song and exposing it to the public.

    So congrats already to anyone putting music out!

    Idance

    Hi!

    My names Tom, I'm a 21 year old Producer / DJ from Essex, England!

    My main love is Acid / Chicago house, 1986-1990. I also, obviously love deep house, old and new! My influences range from Marshall Jefferson, DJ Pierre, Larry Heard & Adonis, to 70's Disco & Soul!

    I mix on vinyl and try to keep everything as original as possible! I really try and make my tracks have that feeling of the original house sound! I'm getting there slowly (I hope!) and am always trying to improve!

    I have such a love for music I cannot explain! I've been reading through this forum for a while and am glad to finally be part of a community that has the same love for this amazing music as I do!

    Tom

    Hey

    My name is Anthony, aka Golden Bullet. I'm a 16 year old Russian house and clubbing music lover, that plays around on Ableton Live. Unlike most people on this forum, I'm new to music making. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm convinced that I'll pick it up pretty quickly thanks to all of you guys on this forum

    Hello people New member here! Just a small introduction to myself: I'm a 21 year old London based producer, specialising in Deep House/ early US & UK Garage, as well a little funky or soulful house here and there too! I've been producing/ mixing since around 2008, have 5 or 6 digital releases out on traxsource, beatport, juno etc, as well as 4 forthcoming vinyl releases before xmas (including my 3 track EP, 2 seperate remixes, and another original track featured on a VA double pack

    I also do the odd bit of DJ'ing, and a lot of bedroom dj'ing mainly vinyl, but will use CDJs for the odd track or two if I'm playing out! Anyway, the scene seems really great at the moment! For me, it's nice to see a revival of early house & garage sounds, which is nice because when I started producing it 5 years ago people were telling me it was 'dead' and a waste of time. Anyway, most of those peeps soon came running back it seems * although people seem to be calling it Deep House for some reason* It's also really good to see vinyl making a come back too!

    I learnt mixing before I ever started producing, and feel quite experienced in that sense, so am happy to help with any posts etc. Of course I am always learning myself, so I'm on here to learn more about what I love too!
