5 Years Deeper Shades Recordings

5 Years of Deeper Shades of House

When Lars Behrenroth founded Deeper Shades Recordings in 2008, his vision was to give upcoming as well as known and experienced producers from all around the globe a platform to share their music with the world just like he had done already for years with his radio show “Deeper Shades Of House”.

This time around the label Deeper Shades Recording has retrospectively taken into the present and future through inclusion of previously unreleased remixes and originals.

Looking back to a catalogue that has spanned for over forty (40) releases, 170+ tracks and remixes by over sixty (60) producers; this vision appears as a functioning formula for Deeper Shades Recordings.

5 Years Deeper Shades Recordings captures the spirit of the label in a compilation consisting of past releases mixed with previously unheard and never available remixes and original tracks.
