DRM017: Matthus Raman

It took me a while to finally post this one, so I would like to apologize to my good friend and french connect, producer Matthus Raman.  It's incredible how busy things have become here at the Deep North's HQ.  Anyways, a few weeks ago I postedvery strong remix Matthus did of the track Concrete by another French producer, Remain - - who, by the way, has an upcoming EP release on My Favourite Robot Records, the party for which we will be hosting on October 21st here in Toronto.  In case you missed my post on this excellent remix, here it is again.

Shortly after posting this remix, Matthus and I came into contact with one another, and it turns out that the upcoming techno producer and Family N.A.M.E. resident is an extremely nice guy.  Without hesitation, Matthus said he would be happy to make us an exclusive mix.  Well, he was he was not lying , because the mix was done within a couple of days.  Matthus has released a few dark and dirty remixes under the Family Name imprint, including one of Elagua's track Cambia La Vidaand one of Clement Meyer's tune Piece by Piece - - both which can be heard below through YouTube.

Before I post the exclusive mix, I wanted to share some interesting information I got from Raman a week ago.  Along with Loran Valdek and Andreas Tome, Raman has plans to launch his own label called Konflict Records in early 2012.  The label will focus on pushing sounds that reflect the feelings and emotions that arise when people experience internal conflict - - a day-to-day occurance for not only him, but all of us.  Now that is deep!

Enough with the chitter-chatter, let's get at-her. The tracklist can be found in the "lyrics" section of the ID3 tags on iTunes.

Oh, hello ... We Are Back.

The Deep North is back and ready for action.  The new HQ is now hooked up with the internet so we will be back to our regular routine of serving hot, hot servings of deep and delicious house music - - at least according to our tastes.

To comemorate the return, we have a big mix by Neoteric coming at you for DRM012, but we will talk about that one in a bit.

For now, let's turn our attention over to French producer Romain Ruffiac, aka Remain, an artist whom I just found out about during a latenight dig for music last week.  The French producer recently released a ruthless stinger of a tune called Concrete on the french imprint Family Name.  The sixth release on the Family imprint, Concrete comes in a huge package - - possibly the biggest one I have seen for a single - - consisting of eight (8) remixes of the original.  Yes, 8 remixes, one release.

I will let you judge it yourself, but I am bent over whether the original mix is the best version, or whether the remixes by the UK's Matt Walsh or France's Matthus Raman take the cake.  I am still undecided, so listen to these three and decide for yourselves.  Perhaps the release could have come with fewer remixes, because most could not even dream of reaching surefire banger status like these ones...in my humble opinion of course.

CAUTION: EXTREMELY HOT.
