( Sthlmaudio / Quintessentials / Elevate )
After what has been an amazing couple of months here at the Deepcast, with artists like Jus-Ed, DJ QU and Mark E laying down some of the last few episodes of the podcast, Berlin’s Bastian Volker AKA Baaz is next up, as we happily tick off yet another incredible artist from the ‘to-do list’.
We first came across Baaz after instantly falling for his first offering on Sthlmaudio back in 2007, with four simple yet highly effective deep raw house cuts it was pretty clear the guy had a knack for it. His follow up records were even better, with his Few Days EP on US label Elevate, containing gems like ‘Wisp’ and ‘Even’, becoming an instant classic of the deep house genre. On top of his select yet timeless original works, Baaz has made a name for himself adding his signature warmth as a remixer, but his greatest talents we think lay behind the turntables.
With a fondness for the rawest and rarest selections, his DJ sets always feel like an effortless extension of his current mood, and after his last few stunning mixes for Technique, Keep It Deep and LWE, we knew this would be just as special. No tracklist so you’ll have to get train-spotting on this one, but that’s all part of the fun right?
