Single Of The Week: Real Deep feat. Jaidene Veda & MdCL – You Got This (Real Deep Remix) (Papa Records)
Real Deep? No doubt. As for the rest, let’s see if you got this. Then you eventually let us know, huh? There’s something reminding of the early days of Chicago (Deep) House and most likely Larry Heard in terms of key arrangements. But also of Maddslinky feat. Omar‘s ‘Special’ as remixed by Atjazz. Although on a smoother edge as far as the rhythm pattern is concerned. Meanwhile Jaidene Veda‘s vocal approach stands in the caliber of Vanessa Daou (cf. ‘Alcestis On The Poetry Circuit’) and Everything But The Girl‘s Tracey Thorn. The whole put together in a sophisticated way bringing back to the souvenir of both NYC label Naked Music and Sade.
Words are just missing to fully recapture the beauty of this composition. You got this? Real deep, huh? With more for you lucky fellas. This under the form of a magnetic remix courtesy of DJ Spinna as a part of another package.

Hailing from Liverpool, Marco Tilley turned himself into a Londoner when his family relocated to Ladbroke Grove by the early 80’s. There, he got exposed to a myriad of different sounds, eventually collecting records at an early age. From Electro to Hip-Hop, Soul and Jazz/Funk through to the House era. With DJing coming up as a natural progression for him.
Tilley made his classes as in-house remixer for Peter Harris‘ Slip’N’Slide label by the end of the nineties. Then he dropped his first release under the Real Deep moniker back in 2002. This by the likes of ‘Seven’ on Azuli Records. And he remixed ‘Nu-Life’ for Karu that same year. Then ‘Elevate Your Mind’ for Trevor Loveys on Freerange Records back in 2003.
Strangely enough, the following traces of him would bring us to some five years later. This while sharing the bill with Stephanie Cooke on ‘More’ for Consortium Muzik. Another five years on and he resurfaced along with Jaidene Veda and Mark de Clive-Lowe on ‘You Got This’ (Papa Records). A cut which DJ Spinna reworked as a part of a remix pack released a few weeks after. Then Real Deep would eventually remix ‘You And Me A Melody’ for Nteeze & Andy featuring Jaidene Veda on Vibe Boutique the following year. This in addition to ‘Beautiful’ for N’Dinga Gaba, Jaidene Veda and Josh Milan on Gaba‘s Global Diplomacy imprint.
