When Lars Behrenroth founded Deeper Shades Recordings in 2008 his vision was to give upcoming as well as known and experienced producers from all around the globe a platform to share their music with the world just like he had done already for years with his radio show "Deeper Shades Of House". Looking back to a catalog spanning over 40 releases, 170+ tracks and remixes by over 60 producers this vision appears as a functioning formula for Deeper Shades Recordings.
Releases like Gyasi's "The Dance", Rocco's "Saharien Child", Liquideep's "Feel It", Gil Tamazyan's "Neotek", Fabio Genito's "Papawenda" and many other songs included in this selection have been played and charted worldwide by DJs like Larry Heard, Osunlade, Jimpster, Atjazz, Vinny Da Vinci, Cajmere, DJ Spinna, Karizma, Mousse T, Charles Webster, Joey Negro, DJ Spen, Ian Pooley, Louie Vega, Boddhi Satva and so many more.
