Carlos Gibbs is the founder of both the Deep House Project (DHP) and the RedBox Project. Carlos began DHP in 2001 to express his own passion for the culture that is house music. It was designed to embrace all facets of mixed media; using the fashion, music, art and style that thrives in the vibrant underground house music scene.
Considered a vinyl technician, Carlos consistently proves his ability to move a dance floor with his programming finesse. His DJ'ing seems to be an extension of his passion for music and his inspiration to create. Part deep groove, part ghetto funk, he moves seamlessly across the ever-changing landscape of house music. He has played with such seminal house DJ's as Land Shark, Ron Carroll, Mark Farina, Miguel Migs, Claude Von Stroke, Justin Martin, Iz & Diz, T-Rek and many others. The list only gets longer as he is continually asked to play at scene-making parties and clubs the world over.
Always looking to expand, Carlos has now moved into the studio, working with some of the West Coast’s top production talent to begin a new label under the DHP moniker. Look forward to the new future of house music as Carlos Gibbs continues to unleash the funk worldwide.
Deepchild is Australian DJ/producer Rick Bull – a stalwart of the Australian deep-house/minimal-tech community and long-time radio presence on the airwaves of Fbi 94.5FM radio in Sydney…
Touring top billing dj set along-side the likes of Richie Hawtin and Green Velvet (at the massive EXIT Festival, Serbia) Jeff Mills (Tribal Sessions in Leeds), Jesse Rose, Dixon and Sebo K (for Jesse’s “Made to Play” monthly at Berlin’s legendary Panorama Bar), M.A.N.D.Y (Watergate, Berlin), Ewan Pearson and Will Saul (SONAR, Barcelona) to remix work from New Order to techno superstars, Booka Shade (voted best act and best record label, Get Physical, in dance bible IDJ last year), there’s much that can be said for this genre-mashing producer. If the increasingly demanding international schedule of weren’t enough (try playing Germany and then Kuala Lumpur in the space of 4 days!), a continuing string of highly successful 12?s on labels and remixes have well and truly solidified deepchild’s reputation as a serious ‘contender’ in the saturated international dance-music community.
The journey has been a long and sonically expansive one. Recent dj support from the likes of Troy Peirce (MINUS), Justin Martin (Dirtybird), Matthias Tanzman (Moon Harbour) and Hipp-e, sits solidly against the proclamations of respected music journal, The Wire, who went as far as to proclaim that this sound was “as sexy and addictive as new-dub electronica gets”. From quirky, stripped-back techno to deep dub explorations, deepchild has proven a robust producer and highly respected dj and live-performer.
