Salt Lake City digital musician DeepWise has released his latest LP record “A Way Out”
Salt Lake City digital musician DeepWise has released his latest LP record “A Way Out.” The album is eight tracks long comprising 47 minutes of solid play time. The music is expertly composed, incorporating various digital media sources as well as live rapping and keyboard instrumentation by DeepWise himself. Tracks are often upbeat, sometimes deep in the groove, always extremely melodic and lying somewhere between deep house dance club material and turn of the millennium techno.
DeepWise, although still a relatively new name on the scene, has deservedly garnered more attention than most enterprising digital musicians at this stage of their artistic career. His 2009 track “Another Wavelength” was ranked at number nine on InternetDJ.com’s weekly charts. His songs have reached approximately 44,000 streams and 1,000 downloads. His releases typically place within the top 20 upon publication to the InternetDJ website.
He is a trained pianist (not surprising, as he is also the son of a jazz piano player and a music scholar, respectively) and his skills are present on the record, but the most remarkable ability DeepWise flaunts on “A Way Out” is his adept linguistic maneuvering as a writer and rapper. His themes are intellectually stimulating and socially important, as well as movingly personal and often extremely uplifting.
In the whimsical introduction to the album DeepWise cleverly quips “How can you keep it real when your mind is fake?” Much of the material is geared towards finding one’s own meaning in life. Over the staccato of beats and crystalline whirring of his melodies he states, “I got a compass but I still don’t know my direction.” His alarm clock goes off. He wakes up and yawns, then says, “Oh yeah! This is how it’s supposed to start,” followed by the first proper track of the album.
“Follow your dream and you will survive…Because it is your destiny; this is the way it has to be,” he writes in “Fear of Destiny.” From the title track, “A Way Out,” come these rapid-fire lines: “Everyone’s had a dream where everything is pretend, but I am your friend; my mind is zen and time starts to bend, but I use my pen.” His background in transposing video game soundtracks as a very young man is delightfully showcased in the melody of the closing track of the record, “No Regrets.”
“This album was made to inspire others to get out of whatever rut they may be in,” says DeepWise. “Lately, I’ve found creativity in times when I need to just ‘get up.’ I also wish to encourage critical thinking and well-informed opinions. This album in particular emphasizes a path we should search for in our lives, through which we may find purpose and rise beyond our perceived limitations, breaking through the psychological barriers we impose on ourselves and others, and ultimately escaping the mediocre daily routines we put up with that further oppress and discourage us from following through with certain goals we have.”
Or, in short: “It’s about finding a way out of your current nightmare, pressing on, and transforming; It’s time to be the person you always wanted to be.”
DeepWise’s LP “A Way Out” is available everywhere online beginning December 29, 2012.
