With its establishment in the early 2000s, Deep House is probably one of the oldest EDM Genres to this day. And it has surely changed quite a lot: A genre which first was mainly focused on rhythm and simplistic, minimalistic sound design has now developed into one of the most versatile genres of electronic music, with its many subgenres like future house, future bounce, minimal house among many others.
It is now played on the big mainstages inside big music festivals like Tomorrowland or Ultra Miami. But the genre itself is relatively easy to gasp, and with enough producing skills, you are able to create some sick deep house tunes right on your laptop. So here’s the top 5 best deep house sample packs every producer of this genre should possess.
