09.11.13 - Wes Madiko recently visted Michel Sanchez at his studio. Deep Forest fans will be excited to hear that the two have been working really hard on a new single, which they hope will rival the success of their hit Alane! The song is Wes & Michel's first new project in over 15 years.

Wes was one of Deep Forest's early stars, giving his voice to a string of songs like Miguele Song, Ketewi, Nemene and the Comparsa album. In 96' Michel & Wes released Welenga which featured Alane.

There is now the option to rate and comment on all photos, as well as an option for anyone to upload their DF related photos. We are looking for people to add scans (300dpi) of their regional Deep Forest releases (CDs, cassettes, vinyls etc).

Made a few forum modifications, such as ability to like posts (feature available to registered users). Guest posting is allowed again, as long as spam doesn't get out of control. Revamped the lyrics section and added a number of new song lyrics. Always adding more discography entries.

In addition to the new Deep Forest concert photos we also have six new photos of Wes performing Keli Maye in a television appearance.
