14 Fathoms Deep (Seattle 1996)

Fourteen Fathoms Deep is a semi-obscure compilation from The Emerald City. The vibe on this cd is mostly rugged and moody which is appropriate for a place that gets about 50 inches of rain a year. If you need some heady tunes for zoning out during the winter months, this is the ticket. Seattle’s Scene is a bit different from its neighbors. The gritty nature of this collection is worlds away from much of the keyboard funk the west coast is known for. Shift gears and take a ride, northwest style.

Some of these artists were also featured on other Seattle compilations in the mid 90’s. A few of them are ‘Untranslated Prescriptions – A Tribal Compilation’ (1995), ‘Do The Math’ (1996) and ‘Word Sound Power’ (1997). This one was released by ‘Loose Groove’ Records in 1996. Let me know if you want more northwest flavor, I’ll be glad to oblige!
