Brian Norwood returns with Sophisticated Deep #8


“I have always loved music that has intense emotion to it, whether there are any words or not. That’s where my DEEP mix series comes in. This is music that is largely instrumental and at the same time is bursting with beauty and emotion. This is #8 of the DEEP mix series and I will say that far and away it is my favorite of the series so far. There are pieces of music on this set that literally leave me at a loss for words. The energy is intense, sexy, hypnotic and deeply anthemic. Also, if you know me then you’ll know that I consider the mixing aspect of DJing to be incredibly important. My intent when mixing records together is to create multiple layers of energy on top of the record that is playing so that the end result is a spine tingling, emotionally thunderous and religious experience. I am particularly happy with this music set because of how I was able to weave and mix the records together seamlessly. These records were made for each other and I hope you’ll agree with me. Once you let this music take you it will grab you, enrapture you, and it won’t let go. From my heart…to your ears.”
