Tonight myself and Max the Fax - - aka the Hermans - - have the absolute pleasure of playing alongside one of our favorite producers from Chicago, Kate Simko, at one of Toronto's favourite clubs Wrongbar. We are super stoked on this and can't wait to see her play. The promoter of the show, Houseaddict, wrote a cool blog post on their website about us, and included an exclusive mix we did specifically for this show. Below is the quoted article and mixtape, we thought it was super nice of the Houseaddict crew and wanted to thank them for the booking and kind words. Make sure you sign up for reduced guestlist before 12am by clicking the following link for Reduced Guestlist @ Kate Simko.
QUOTED Post @ Houseaddict.com:
" Let’s just start this blog off proper shall we? The Deep North are a fucking motley crew!!! They’re a team of three dudes who chose the underground of Toronto as their outlet for creativity, and that comes in the form of producing unique tracks, and showcasing them at uber-unusual venues such as basement bars in Chinatown, and most recently, defunct loft spaces on Colleges St. in the heart of Little Italy. Their marquee series, as many of you will already know, is LATE & DEEP.
Two of the three homies, Dick Diamonds and Max The Fax, joined forces to start producing asThe Hermans. These two dudes completely ignore any conventional rules of mixing music and genres. In fact, they tend to create sets that really are hard to pigeon hole into a single genre. One might say that’s what makes them who they are. Hell, why bother talking about it, when we can just listen to a sample they made exclusively for our crew:

When we spoke to the dynamic duo back in April about performing with Kate Simko on June 22 @Wrongbar, well they jumped off the computer screen and gave us a huge hug. Man, if that ain’t dedication to the cause, we really don’t know what is. This event kicks off our collaborative series,SUMMER MIXTAPE SESSIONS (SMS), a four-month residency at Wrongbar : )
The Hermans will have the set time just prior to Kate taking over the booth, so please join us on the dance floor to get things moving early.
SMS aims to offer Toronto a summer of performances with underground artists who demonstrate how being different should be the norm. All in the heart of Parkdale…
Caution – you may have a hangover after this one ; )"
Thanks so much for the kind words guys!!
