“Ou es ton papa?” – “Where’s your papa?” Stromae sings, is what people always asked him at school. It’s a diligent match to the other track it’s mixed with, which is about doing a thing intensely, to a more than harmful degree, according to the band, who are The Prodigy.

deepwhitesound an online label of free, experimental music from all over the world, whose aim is to create challenging, experimental work and make it available via digital download for free.
These tracks were sent in by founder DB Amorin to give us an overview of the different works and disciplines being submitted to DWS, and we begin with the most abstract one!
Deep white sound “supports and foster a community for artists working at the fringes of art, technology and society, that expand the possibilities of how sound-based art is experienced, distributed and discussed”.
While female, queer and ethnic minority artists comprise a woefully under-represented and under-supported demographic in the arts, they are of particular interest to DWS who champion the margins. However DWS state clearly that they “seek out and support work from all people, everywhere, who wish to broaden the scope of what is possible”.
