...but, you may ask, what exactly is Deep House Music?
"Deep-house refers to a sub-genre of house music which first came to prominence in the late 1980s, characterised by repeating, chromatic chords sustained across many bars to a seductive, sensuous and almost-dissonant effect. Deep house music tends to observe a tempo of between 120 and 125 beats-per-minute, incorporating elements of modern disco, funk or techno whilst also exhibiting a deeply-layered, emotive melodic complexity firmly rooted in the traditions of jazz, soul and fusion. Notable purveyors of deep house music (past and present) include Mr. Fingers, Kerri Chandler, Metro Area, Disclosure, Atjazz, Ben Watt, Matthew Herbert, Jimpster, Detroit Swindle, Frits Wentink and Harvey Sutherland." — The Cosmic Lounge
"Deep house is a style of house music which fuses elements of Chicago house, jazz-funk, and Detroit techno. Sonic qualities include slower bpms, fewer vocals, darker emotions, jazz-influences, and dissonant melodies." — Discogs

...but, you may ask, what exactly is Trip-Hop Music?
"Drawing inspiration from a heady brew of downtempo electronic music which surfaced in the wake of early-nineties hip-hop and house, but also incorporating a healthy dose of psychedelia cresting on an undercurrent of urban dub sensibility, trip-hop music took its name from Mixmag's now-legendary review of "In/Flux" by then-unknown DJ Shadow in June 1994. Years later, trip-hop has encompassed the blues-rock hip-hop of Portishead, the French-psychedelic exotica of Goldfrapp, the sinister spoken-word dub-reggae of Massive Attack and the baroque acid-folk of Ilya, whilst its often dense, narcotic and introspective (but also eclectic) torch is borne far and wide by luminaries such as Morcheeba, Sneaker Pimps, Moloko, Tricky, UNKLE, Hooverphonic, Björk, Bonobo and Zero 7." — The Cosmic Lounge
"While it shares the constant and repetitive beats of downtempo, trip hop is texturally a little more busy often using a wide array of samples of both live and electronic instrumentals, with offbeat turntable scratches and vocal melodies whilst almost always maintaining a mellow tempo in 4/4. The beats often invoke a surreal, trippy, dreamy and yet slightly dark atmosphere." — Rateyourmusic
