This week’s Tag of the Week focuses on deep house – a subgenre of dance music that veers into complex chord structures and takes influence from Chicago house, jazz-funk and soul music. We have explored the tag on Last.fm Discover – a fantastic place to find new music – to find three of the most exciting emerging acts in the genre. With over 2 million tracks to be explored on Last.fm Discover, your new favorite artist could be just a few clicks away.

Scrobbled a total of 36,261 times, his track “Loop 008” can be streamed in full HERE and you can expect sampled vocals, sustained synths and brooding piano – creating an almost claustrophobic listen that eventually settles to make for an interesting listen.
