Often the term deep house is used alongside the term soulful, often musicians call soulful jazzy or funky, and sometimes even lounge. It can be explained by a number of live instruments (piano, guitar, saxophone, brass, etc), improvisations in soulful music that`s completely untypical for club house music.

Soulful house can be divided into two types. On the one hand, it`s calm, melodic music with a tempo 118-123 BPM, it`s created for calm conversations, but not for dance floors; it`s music for summer evenings, a soundtrack for fashion shops, or for cozy cafes; this music is more suitable for a soul than for a body. On the other hand, this music can be associated with cheerful dancing due to a faster tempo (126-128 BPM). The best definition for soulful house music was coined by Ricardo Torres: «dance music for adults». It`s believed that the word «soul» can define the mood and idea of this music.
