Deep City Groove x TILTmag.com Mixtape Humpday #37

TiltAdmin on January 23, 2013 - 8:04 pm in TiltMag Mixtape Series

One of our favorite producers of 2013 so far is Mr. Bobby Murray AKA Deep City Groove of Belfast, UK. We are super lucky to get a amazing mixtape from him as he is our 37th mixtape and our first Deep House Producer who has ever blessed us!

Deep City Groove has been on our radar since the first moment we heard his Single Police Brutality on Assembly Records. This is one producer who is bringing back Jack House // Deep House but on a much crisper and cleaner level. You see, back in the 90’s when Jack House, Hip House and Deep House ruled the world, it was all recorded on tape! Now that everything is mastered digital it allows us to enjoy the full experience of those Hi-Hats and Deep Bass!

I feel that Deep City Groove is a true master of his genre and will continue to slay dancefloors world wide. Hopefully we can see him in L.A. SOON!

I was able to catch up with Bobby Murray A.K.A. Deep City Groove to bring you a short interview.

Tell us a bit about yourself and some of your influances.

Deep City Groove:

Well have been DJing for 12 years, producing for 6 Years. I started the Deep City Groove alias last September 2011 and things started to go well straight away with the 1st track getting signed to Alive Recordings. since then I’ve been lucky enough to fall in with some great label owners and its progressed to now. 2013 is looking like its going to be the best yet, i just signed 3 tracks to Toolroom a great label!

Influences wise I would have to list Shine in Belfast as my top, it is one of the biggest club night in Northern Ireland and for years has brought over the most underground names. It is the night that first introduced me to proper house and techno. I also have to list Ibiza as a big influence on me, I’ve been going and playing on the island for the last 5 years now, i did a season out the in 2008 and every time i go its great to go and see friends who live there, see what new nights there are and what new trends are coming in and what’s on its way out. It’s a really good barometer for whats going on in dance music.

Finally i have say the DJ’s and producers of Belfast, guys like Extended Play, Psycatron and Phil Kieran. These are people I watched week in week out and have moved onto the world, new guys like Space Dimension Controller, Bubba who are also on a Global Rampage Plus the many many artist who are coming up every year.

Any Tour plans?

Deep City Groove:
I’m playing in Mexico again in 2013 in Tulum. I played there in 2010 and I can’t wait to get out again. I’d love to get playing out in the U.S. too, The Japanese Popstars (brilliant Electro/Techno Northern Irish act, amazing live) did a tour out there last year and they said they had a great time. This year I have more gigs in main land UK and I’ll be out in Ibiza again so will be pretty busy.

TILTmag fully endorses this great producer and we will keep you all updated about future events and music that he will be releasing!
