Dle Yaman (116 Deep Mix) – Hrααch

July 13, 2016


I recently spent some time in Berlin and found it to be an eye opening musical experience. Spending 16 hours straight immersed in Berlin club music, I gained a new appreciation for deep and tech house. I like the long build, the minimal synths, and the power the constant rhythm builds up. I love how much emotion can be implied and shared with just a few notes, a growl of bass here, or a pause there. Hrααch was not a DJ I heard in Berlin, but is a DJ I’ve come across since coming home and searching for more music that sounded like Berlin. This track features those slow builds and minimal synths, but it may be a bit easier to ease into for those new to the deeper side of house because it also features vocals. Hrααch started with an Armenian folk song about missing one’s love, a song that has taken on the connotation of a love lost permanently to death, and gave it a house makeover, preserving the mournful, ominous mood with his synth arrangements. Listen to it, and give it a chance to hook you, longer than you might in a 3 minute pop song. Let it wash over you.

BONUS: Let’s keep the Deep House rolling! If you’re hooked by the last track, you’ll want more. So here’s a collaboration between Hrααch and Armen Miran that continues the vibe of the previous song. This one has no vocals, relying instead on a very expressive violin and a whole series of other synths and instruments providing tiny sets of notes to complement and continue the song. It’s all held together by the constant rhythm. Enjoy.
