Sultan + Shepard are back with their latest dancefloor hit “Deeper”. The Grammy-nominated duo applied their talents to a demo of the track that Carla Monroe drafted. The result is incredible. Beautiful piano chords dance through a classic house melody. The sound pairs perfectly with the mesmerizing vocals of Carla Monroe.
Monroe describes how she came up with “Deeper”. “I first wrote the melody for deeper about 2 years ago, while I was driving in my car on the way to the 9-5 job I had at the time. I wrote the lyrics to it on my way home! I remember laying down the vocals as soon as I got home, then forgetting about it for around a year. I happened to be going through some demos and this one resurfaced, so decided to send it to my manager. The demo was then picked up by Sultan + Shepard who gave the song a great fresh, fun-loving feel. As a writer, I always start with melody first and sometimes subconsciously, find myself making sounds that sound like words! This is what gave me the inspiration for the word “deeper”, which I then worked a concept around. The song is about having a deeper connection with someone as opposed to just being attracted to them on a physical level.”
Sultan + Shepard talked about the opportunity to work with Carla Monroe. “We’ve always been a fan of singers who can bring emotion and soul to dance music. When we had the opportunity to work with Carla Monroe, we jumped at the chance. She’s emerged in the last few years as a real voice that embodies everything we love about house music these days so it’s fair to say we’re really excited about this record. Our love for house music runs pretty deep and we just hope to be able to make something that can inspire other people the way house music has inspired us over the years.”
