Deeper Soul


Born in Chicago on the spring equinox of 2003, DeeperSoul Recordings is an active effort to combine the many soulful sounds created around the world, with the rich and diverse roots of Chicago's music history. With a social and musical conciousness, we reach out to the willing and open ears of the soulful human beings in the world community. We reach into our ancestral past of music and life and realize the lessons and truth available. We, as children, can learn from the lessons of our elders to create the future through a positive presence. These concepts are applied deepest in our appoach to the music, combining elements of jazz, soul, house, hip-hop, and the ancient use of the drum.

Deeper Soul is setting itself apart with historic projects including a remix series of AACM member Kahil ElíZabarís music, previously unreleased and new recordings featuring Kahil with modern dance producers. Working with Osunlade, IG Culture, Charles Webster, Kemetic Just, Alton Miller, and Kemit Sources to name a few, Deeper Soul is taking things seriously. Supported by Gilles Peterson & Benji B of the BBC, Garth Trinidad, DJ Spinna, Mr. Scruff, Osunlade, Bugz in the Attic, Deeper Soul is set to create a new page in Chicagoís rich music history.
