Recently, my mom passed away. With that, a huge shit load of aggravations entered my life; funeral preparation, dealing with insurance companies and handling other loose ends. I say my life. Yet, my brother and step-dad are included with this too. I ain’t alone.
Still, add that with regular aggravations and the mind gets overloaded. An overloaded brain can run a person damned near crazy.
For those that don’t know, I am the weekend photographer for an Orlando nightclub. As I drove to work, I played my new deep house playlist on the car stereo. This involved hooking my iPhone up to a cassette adapter.
I don’t know a damned thing about deep house. Yet, I do know it is the current trend in house music. Also, it is the shittiest house music I have ever heard. There’s nothing original about deep house. The music reminds you off past house music you may have stopped listening to for awhile. Plus, a lot of deep house has no soul music elements what so ever. Also, most of the music is just loops that play over and over again. At least, dubstep had up and down moments, meaning the music builds up and then falls down. Then, it builds up again. Oh no, deep house just goes on and on the same loop. The percussion beats may sound different from past house music. Yet, it’s still the same four-on-the-floor pattern from the disco days.
And it calmed my ass down. Maybe, it was the repetition in the music. Who knows? I just know deep house calmed me down. As the music continued playing, I became more relaxed.
I have no future plans on DJing deep house music. Little shits would just annoy me and say I wasn’t playing proper deep house, anyway. I experienced that with dubstep. Nor do I intend on joining the deep house underground. I’ll just keep creating playlists and continue enjoying the shittiest house music ever.
