The End

Everything that has a beginning has an end, they say. The DeeperSoul Blog started in 2004 and, 10 years later, with these words I'm announcing its end. Many thanks to all musicians, djs, producers and music lovers who have contributed to DeeperSoul, implicitly sharing the pure love for the music. My mission is over, it's time to ask for fresh new ideas and actions by other music enthusiastic. Thank you all!
