We’re Going Deep’ is a new label run by an old head- Paul Wise, better known as Placid to many who inhabit the realms of underground House and Techno.
Born out of a lifelong affair with the many shades of deep electronic rhythms coupled with a thirst for collecting records since 1988, the label mission is all about releasing new music for the dance floor, front room or even just your headphones.
Rather than staying too hung up on the past, Paul’s reputation for digging deep into Acid, Electro, Techno, Deep House and even the odd slice of downtempo precedes him, as he readies the second instalment on his imprint. Picking up where WGD 001 left off, he’s both humbled and pleased to be able to invite 4 more exceptional artists to show off their finest waveforms.
Volume 2 starts the dance with a sterling contribution from Dublin’s very own machine maestro Cignol, “Night Time Traverse”. Proving once again why his flair for combining tight metronomic drums, wistful melody, blissed out strings with a twist of 303 is second to none: unmistakably tight, unmistakably good. Followed by some heavy head nodding action courtesy of new kid on the block, Armec, he’s already scored 2 fantastic releases under his belt. Fully repping the next generation of mancunian machine enthusiasts, he delves deep into the seedy underworld of deepest and darkest electro with ice cold aplomb on “Celestial Mechanics”.
Hit the flipside and you’ll find Acid aficionado Jared Wilson (who should be no stranger to most) leading the charge as he whips up a storm with a tweaked 303 takeover, led by a mesmerising chord that runs throughout – he works his magic once again in fine style. Last but not least, the dulcet tones of Bristol’s very own best kept secret Gilbert lands another sumptuously deep slab of techno with “Signs of Hope”. Leading with a pleasantly addictive bassline, this beautifully structured whistful symphony oozes warmth and tranquillity as he takes a trip to the light fantastic.
