Salute the movement!

And I'm not talking about this weekend in Detroit. 
Next weekend, The Deep North takes the next step in becoming a true player in the world of house and techno. We are starting a record label. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we've got one of our artists coming up from the lone star state. This young man goes by the stage name TX Connect and with releases out and forthcoming on great labels such as Pinkman, Creme Organization, L.I.E.S., Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, and Deep North Records, you can expect this one to be a real treat. 
Next Saturday, May the 31st it all goes down. Starting at 10 P.M. at Wrongbar catch Gcue, Douglas Carter and TX Connect as they tear up the venue for the first official DNR Label Showcase & Fundraiser.   After that, in true LATE & DEEP fashion, we will keep  the party going until sunrise.  People will then head on over to the official after party and dance away the rest of the night.  As our way of thanking those who support the label night and fundraiser at Wrongbar, we will be giving you all the secret after party location plus free entry to the Afterparty. What more could you want?
To help get you in the mood check out this podcast mix Mr. Connect did for Creme Organization, as well as his up coming Double-Disc release forthcoming on the label.

Hey, it's Rhobot back in the mix for you deep northerners. Long time no blog, I've been in Antarctica balling with the penguins. But I'm back now with some hot polka trax direct from Germany. One of my faves and Kompakt label boss Wolfgang Voigt gets different with one of his favorite genres. It's nice house with a polka flavouring. Check it.



Tune in next time, same deer time, same deer url.

T-Bone Time!

Looking at my rolie, it's about that time. This Late & Deep we've got a real treat for you. T-Bone aka Timmy Stewart, co-owner of Extended Play Recordings is a real beast out of Belfast, Ireland. This week he is hopping across the pond so he can get down with all of us house heads here in the dot. This guy is a serious sonic specialist so you really don't want to miss out this Friday when he beats up the dancefloor for all you dancing maniacs. And if you don't believe me, here comes the proof. 

Here's a tasty exclusive mix he did for us over in The Deep North, check it out, it goes, that's for certain:

Now if that's not enough to convince you here's another dosage of dope for your soul. This is a dirty hour-long mix of T-Bone's personal faves of 2012. Don't sleep:

And if you thought T-Bone was only a brilliant DJ you were dead wrong. He's also a fine producer as well. Give your ear to a few of his splendid creations:

One of his latest releases with his collaborating partner and good friend Bubba featuring Abe Duque, along with some beautiful remixes, good stuff:

So if all that hasn't got you hooked yet there really isn't much more I can do for you. My only advice is to turn your hearing aid up to 11 for this one:

Remember folks, this Friday it all goes down on a dancefloor near you. For more details of how you can get the chance to bust a groove to the workings of T-Bone's magic, HIT THIS LINK!

And I'm out,

On The Button

It's a common sight in Toronto: Birds line up to see Jeff Button's solid sets, who knows if they really love his pole though.

Jeff Button, a name all too familiar to those in the deep house/underground electronic music scene.  Touted by many as "Toronto's best opening DJ", it would be hard to find more than zero reasons to suggest otherwise.  A man who is passionate about music, a businessman firm to his line, and a player who loves to grind it out while commanding the respect of his peers is someone who has put in the work.  Jeff Button has put in the work, and continues to do so.  You can't argue with a guy who constantly gets booked to play - - for pay.  Rare indeed.

Check out this nice mix he did for BlogTO's article "Get To Know A DJ" and read up about this guy and what he does.  As far as this mix is concerned, it is right on the Button.  

Big love to the Button.  Keep diggin deep homie!

Montreal duo Vosper has come out with a warboat release on French imprint Meant Records, which has been getting a ton of hot media coverage as of late. Move out of the way captain!

Have you heard of the Canadian duo out of Montreal named Vosper?  The Canadians - - Edouard Le and Christopher Bryon have been making waves on several strong internet publications such as XLR8R and Ibiza Voice, who recently gave the boys a strong 9/10 rating for their newest release on Deep North favorite Meant Records, which is headed by France's Romain Rouffiac, aka Remain.  Below are samples from the release, a five-song EP which can be bought on Beatport.  In the meantime, grab a free copy of the remix by Polar, which can be found on the XLR8R Page.  Great work from our fellow Canadians - - get that!

Since were here, and on the topic, I will share a couple of other strong releases on the Meant imprint which I think you should check out.  Remain had a banging one with his Ralph/Digression EP and our homies Clouded Vision [Matt Walsh / Steve Cook] who, we might add own a label of the same name, had another good one under the Meant banner with their Room101 EP.

The Grease Boutique [Vol. 1]

The Original Grease Boutique: Dick Diamonds & Paul Beazy, aka Bone$ McLeod (Pronounced: Mic-Loud). Taken somewhere, sometime by someone of two late night greasers.

Just wanted to hop in real quick like, with a little stinger by my boy Paul Beazy aka Bone$ McLeod.  This is the first little mix I have heard in a while from the witty Toronto-based rapper, slang-slinger and occasional selector.  The mix was not quite long enough to be submitted as a DRMbut definitely makes for a great listening experience with some new fire he just dug up in the mix.

For the fans of hip-hop out there, make sure you check out some of Bones' work under his other moniker Paul Beazy on RevebNation, which is essentially a "nickname of a nickname" - - a modified shortening of his original rap alias Paul Bearer.

You can catch Bone$ McLeod spinning an hour long set at TOTA Lounge tonight at around 11:30pm for a new weekly event called Deep Kiss Tuesdays.  Who knows, you may even see some of us out there in the crowd, or even spinning with him during his first set under the new new "Bone$ McLeod" moniker.  The new weekly event will happen tonight, then jump onto a weekly basis starting in two weeks, on Tuesday the 27th.

It's gonna be fun.  A "real pearll" of a time, as some might say in Italy - - so come out!!
