I’ll never forget the first time I heard deep house music. It was 2006 and I was at Luka’s Taproom and Lounge in Oakland, CA. Right there on the dance floor, with a drink in my hand, my body got taken over by the Holy Ghost. Yup, I was ready to shout … in a bar.
I thought maybe it was just that night, just that club, just that DJ or just those drinks but much to my surprise, it happened again years later right here in Baltimore, in a little spot on North Ave. The night was almost over and the DJ, who played electro house music all night ended his set with a song that set my soul free.
Dorian Davis, one of my close friends and music connoisseur, calls this music genre, ancestral house. Dorian says the music has a spirituality that turns a dance floor into a sacred space. The drums and African undertones coupled with positive mantras uplift her soul.
Take a moment to release negativity, be free and connect to the universal spirit, the source of all things good.
