Deep house is a style of house music. It is defined by several characteristics that distinguish it from most other forms of house music. These include calmer percussion, achieved by less compressed kick drums and softer hihats, as well as gentler transitions and simpler drum programming. The tempo of tracks is also relatively slower, ranging from around 110 to 128 bpm). The Jazz influences of deep house are most frequently brought out by sustained augmented or diminished chords which span several bars, which give the tracks a slightly dissonant feel. The use of vocals is also more common in deep house than in other forms of house music.
