15 Sexy Deep House Grooves to Warm Your Frigid A** Up All Winter(And Beyond)

Brrrrrrr..…….it’s cold out there. 

That not-so-shameless Bring it On reference (damn you, HBO NOW) indicates that yes, Torrence, it is cold out there, but that also those temperatures in the atmosphere are going to drop like all of us after New Year’s. 

So, in order to save, well, all of us from that not-so-elusive mental #thinkspring countdown, and to save you from going all The Shining on that one co-worker…..

……we get it for the tenth time today, Linda, it’s f@cking cold out.…..a luscious setting of proper grooves to get us through these frigid times is absolutely in order. 

While any type of groove in ya damn life is fitting at any moment in time, there’s just…..something about a deeply synth-ful deep house beat. 

Whether teaching us life on the after hours dance floor or just teaching us about life in general, the (vastly underrated stateside) genre of deep house is just, well, imagine it as an never ending big ol’ mug of the world’s finest hot chocolate that just warms you up from the inside out…..and makes you feel a lil’ sexy as you take each sip. Yes. 

Plus, it’s a known scientific fact that grooves provided by Gorgon City, BURNS, DJ David Penn, Duke Dumont, Todd Terry, Matvey Emerson, Sandy B (!!!), Jennifer Hudson, Katy B, NAATIONS and Sonny Fodera will lead you to a less a frigid life this winter and beyond. 

Even Linda in accounting. 

So, let’s warm it up, kids, ’cause that’s what these ridiculously deep grooves are about to do. 

BURNS/David Penn/Johnny Yukon/”Worst”  Nothin’ like a little new deep shh…to ignite this dance floor of warmed up life. 

Demi Lovato/”Cool for the Summer”/Todd Terry Remix Because it’s never too early to get into the #summerscomin mind frame, especially when this synth-fully delish refire is helping us keep warm all frigid life long. 

Gorgon City/Duke Dumont/NAATIONS/”Real Life”  When they ALL get together….this is what happens. 

Husky/”Work it Out”   Indeed.

Summer Groove of the Evening/Sonny Fodera/Yasmeen/”Caught Up”

This past Friday night, those Philly Mixtape vibes were front-and-center for an always deep and delicious set provided by by deep house guru, DJ Sonny Fodera

And while it’s easy to spill iced summer music tea by the pool about how Mr. Fodera just keeps serving us with the deep heat–meaning and everything off of his latest red-hot offering, Frequently Flying, sometimes we just have to let the fucking music play. 

So, while you add every gummy groove from Mr. Fodera’s latest into your bikini-and-stilettos inspired playlists (go here), you must lose yourself in “Caught Up,” a divinely deep standout featuring sexy, stellar vocals from Mizz Yasmeen. In headphones fact, this track is so fucking hot, that the world renowned DJ opened his set with it this past weekend. 

All meaning…go.

Groove of the Day/Katy Perry/”Walking on Air”

Out of the oh, so few enjoyable music moments off of Katy Perry’s 2013 Prism record (sigh…there truly were…take a seat, “Birthday”), one of them is undeniably the ’90s deep house romp that is “Walking on Air.” 

Armed with a delicious MTV Party to Go groove laced with CeCe Peniston inspired vocal werk with a tinge of gospel to go along with….it all, you have to wonder why the tantalizing track was never released as an official single.

While we could sit and ponder that notion all day long (also…where’s that new album,boo?), the weather is about to own our late October lives once again and this Kitty Purry groove is all you need to make the day that much more sweeter. 

As if that were possible. Now, dance. 

 

This month’s grooves sound like….
