Atlanta’s Rob Dowell (warm art, cardio) has been an important part of the local dance music community for quite some time. For those behind the scenes, we also know that Rob has played an important role as a visual artist as well. His work can be seen through the end results of many event flyers, artist websites, and more. Rob found his calling with music many years ago. His approach to DJing is nothing short of a display of care, respect, and knowledge for the music, its history, and those on the dance floor. Rob has crafted this over many years, going back to the days of Simon’s in Gainesville, FL.
Below is a beautiful mix of deep vibes from our homie in Colorado. Justin Bright (CArdio,TFSH) has been a friend of the deephouse.com crew for many years. If you have had the chance to hear him live, you will see why we have so much love for this brother. Not to mention what costume he might be rocking. In a suit, fishnets or naked – Justin is unpredictable. Kick back and enjoy!!
Hailing from Macedonia, brother Bobi is a great addition to the night life in Atlanta, his current residence. Bobi has been djing for around 8 years and has developed a very unique sound in his short time as a music slinger. Upon meeting Bobi I immediately picked up on his passion for life, food and music! He is a refreshing character in the ever growing dj scene in Atlanta. Please treat yourself to the stylings of our friend and brother, Bobi.
This one takes me back. It’s from my early days after I started playing out regularly. This was a live recording from a party in Atlanta at The Masquerade called Silk. It was recorded onto a cassette tape recorder (remember those!?) I brought to the club. This 16-year-old cassette recording has been transferred to digital, cleaned up (as much as possible) and mastered.
The first half is deep and tribal and the second half goes into funky Chicago house. I was still developing my aggressive and long mixing style during this time so it’s a little loose in places. This tape, along with my first cassette tape release Cement Galoshes (which is currently being mastered, as well, and coming soon!), got in the hands of a big promoter in the Midwest and helped take my DJ career to the next level.
I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.
This is a studio mix by Kevin O that is dedicated to the music that we love. Deep vibes. Enjoy and share!
In Atlanta, the parties at the Sampson St. Lofts in Old 4th Ward were notorious for many reasons. This past summer, the last party EVER was held with some of the best DJs in the city coming out. This is an unusual set because it’s more techno than people are used to hearing from Kevin O. There is no tracking listing, but it’s a great set, so enjoy!

This set was recorded live at Necto on September 28th, 2013. I had a blast playing in Detroit for the first time in years.
Lush was a late-night party in Atlanta, GA many years ago that started at 3am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. It was always jam-packed with house music lovers until at least 6am. I had the honor of playing for them twice, and this set was recorded live at my second appearance. Since the place was small and the dj booth was right on the dancefloor, you can hear people (and me) screaming through the needles, which I love.
This was also the night I met fellow deephouse.com dj Kevin O. He had a live singer performing with him during his set right before mine, so at the beginning of the mix, as we were swapping out connections, you can hear the crowd through her mic, and her unplanned saying “yeah!” right before I started my first record was serendipitous to say the least and really sets this mix apart.
The only bummer was the sound system was rigged for mono so the recording is in mono, not stereo. However, I was so happy with it, I decided to release it anyway. To this day, it’s one of my favorite sets.
A studio mix made at the request of a fan who had been asking me passionately for a deep house set. This is the full length version (the CD was just 74 minutes). It’s deep and funky and the first 40 minutes makes it one of my most favorite recordings.
