Get Physical Music Presents: Heller & Farley 'Tears' - A Deep House Compila

Just released on the Get Physical label is the latest release from Heller and Farley 'Tears' which gives an exemplary example of the true meaning of 'Deep House' in this compilation released on the German based label. For years Heller and Farley have set standards in the House music world, with early releases via their own label Junior Boys Own, which was born out of the cult club/style/football fanzine Boys Own, launched by Terry, Pete, Andrew Weatherall and Steven Hall in the mid-1980s. As well as the collective’s own releases it put out tracks by the Chemical Brothers and Underworld among others to their own releases as a duo they have released popular tunes under the names Heller & Farley Project (or Farley & Heller), Fire Island plus The Look and Feel. In 1996, they released "Ultra Flava" smashed not only the UK but also over the pond in the US. The pair return once more with this golden release of Deep House, Terry Farley goes on to say this about the current status of Deep House in 2014; "'Deep House' - alongside ‘Brazil’ and the ‘World Cup’, they seem to be the most over-used two words of 2014. What is ‘Deep House’? Last year I played in Stockholm alongside a man who should know as he was there at its birth, Tyree Cooper. Tyree warmed up the room spinning mid-tempo, early 80’s Disco or, as he put it 'House Music' stating 'it’s the music Frankie played before anyone had made a House record'. Four decades after the Warehouse in Chicago closed, Deep House now means everything from European 120bpm Tech House to UK House that ex-Grime kids now make and of course, 'Trad Deep House' like the American stalwarts still make. What we thought we would do is take what we like that’s representing out there. Music that is good for your soul, music that you can still feel during that 8am cab-of-shame drive home. We have picked some of Get Physical's deep moments and matched them up with some 90's classics like DJ Pierre’s seminal 'Jesus On My Mind' and what’s considered by many aficionados as THE best Deep House record of that decade - Round Two's 'New Day'. We then dropped in some curveballs such as UK producer Moodymancs 'Paint Black', remixed of course by a godfather of Deep House Larry Heard and Mark E's 'Bog Dance'. Its old school meets future classics. It’s Mike Dunn and M.A.N.D.Y.. It’s Frankie's 'Tears’ and Anja's 'Stay Quiet'. It’s HOUSE in all its glory." – Terry Farley, 2014
