Chris Essentials Deep House Seasons Sessions

How Chris Essentials Deep House Mixes Started.

My love for house music started in the early 1990’s walking through Streetside Records in Westport and hearing this electronic beat that instantly peaked my curiosity. The song was so simple, yet I did not understand why I liked it. I was in Youth Orchestra at the time and all music in my world had more than four sounds. After asking what type of music was being played I was told: “house music bro from Chicago, speaks to some people…others not so much!”

Nothing better than sitting down and thumbing through tracks to put together to tell an instrumental story.  If you are a fan of Deep House with a Nu Disco – Tribal Flare be sure to check out my monthly mixes.

Hommage À Berlin!


Hommage À Berlin!

Berlin has a Deep House sound all to its own that has to be appreciated regardless of the preferred electronic music genre. This set was put together on a cold cloudy afternoon post Holiday. Perfect inspiration to sit down in the studio and enjoy the amazing world of music out there.

Mixed at 122 BPM, enjoy the fantastic poly synths and tight tight bass hits. Find out what your mid range and tweeter speakers are made of.
