“His love goes on and on and on and on and on and on….”
“Unto Deep” is a vocal deep house banger from Jari Kobe (a name that your probably won’t be familiar with until you know that it’s really legendary producer Greg Hobgood “trying his hand” at House!).
This one opens with an almost “lazy” sounding beat (in it’s simplicity and the way it seems to just amble along at it’s own pace). Additional percussion fills circles round the kick, claps and hats while the deep house pad bass teases us with a single note. A momentary break then drops us into the main hook, a simple an contagious one that will stick with you.
A further break introduces the vocals as it drops again and the beat drops back to it’s most simple. Further vocal layers are added and the percussion comes back in through to the “chorus” which adds in a classic house organ chord riff.
If this is Greg Hobgood just “trying his hand” at House, I am desperate to hear what would happen if he really dedicated himself to it!!
“Deep calls to deep, in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life.” (Psalm 42:7-8 NIV)
