deepState is the project of Jessica Morgan, a musician and producer based in Tāmaki Makaurau. Her music is a journey of electronic experimentation, investigating the nuances of House, Electronica, Downtempo, Garage and Breakbeat. deepState has been described as “a prolific producer” by Undertheradar, “a heavy-hitter of the local Aotearoa electronic scene” by Sniffers and “a producer whose impeccable production and innovative vocal sampling is gaining her a reputation as one of the best in the country” by RNZ’s The Sampler.
"A producer whose impeccable production and innovative vocal sampling is gaining her a reputation as one of the best in the country "
"Dance music is communal, and deepState seems dialled into that feeling of losing yourself on a dance floor, surrounded by people having a similar experience. "
"Ruling student radio airwaves in '23 with the rave piano enhanced 'Won't Let You Down', the haunted beatscape of 'Now That You're Gone' and the title track's soulful textures, deepState's atmospheric new collection can feel like a nocturnal journey within her sprawling super city — riding highs and lows through moments of loneliness and togetherness. "
"What I really appreciate about the work of Tāmaki Makaurau producer deepState is the lack of irony or remove in her compositions, which sound modern, but deeply honour the legacy of club music in ways that suggest total immersion. "
