The Deep North's resident nu-disco and deep house producer and DJ Sean Roman has been on an relentless tear over the past year and 2011 was a testament that the 30-year old producers hard work in the studio is paying off. Sean Roman, a native from Toronto, was once best known as DJ Mutt - - a DnB producer with numerous releases known across the globe - - but now it seems like this might be changing.
In 2011, Sean made his mark in the house community, catching the edge of the huge wave that was somethere between deep house and nu-disco, popularized by people like Jamie Jones, Lee Foss and their Hot Creations artists in what many called a "renaissance period" for house music in the UK and Europe. 2011 was a massive year for the artist, who went from having a few house releases to now having well over 10, and more then a handful in the tube. 2011 saw Sean and group the White Lions - - with long time friends Rob Steal & Cody LG - - signing to labels such as Hot Waves, My Favorite Robot, Fabric, Top Billin, Thoughtless Music, Assembly Records, Overcross and more.
We here at The Deep North have been longtime supporters of Sean's and the White Lions, were super excited when both agreed to join our Resident DJ Roster last Fall, after having played a number of events with us and developing a close relationship that has continued to grow. Toronto still does not fully realize that they have a possible future star in their own city, but 2012 will see a lot more of Sean and the White Lions rocking dancefloors across the city. The White Lions are going to be playing alongside BUBBA of Hot Creations/Klasse/Extended Play for April's edition of Late & Deep. Shit is going to blow minds.
Two Unsigned Tracks: Given to us by Sean last year, both tracks are unreleased and are available to be picked up by interesed labels. For more information contact us.

2012 will be an even bigger year for the emerging star and news of new releases continue to confirm this. His hot new release Sinnaman on Assembly Records is now sitting at #8 on Juno's Deep House Charts, continuing to climb. Sean will be the first release coming out on Jamie Ward's (the owner of Act Natural) new imprint Feast Records (FEAST001), which will include two originals and remixes by both MANIK and the Waifs and Strays. Sean also has signed with the Mexican imprint Neim Records, which is known for harbouring sleazy beat boys such as Miguel Puente, Wildkats, Alexis Raphael, Louie Fresco and Jay Haze. There are other releases in the tube which I will not mention in the interest of those involved, but let me tell you that it is more than exciting to say the least.

The White Lions have also kicked into 2012 with a super cool release of their amazing track H-Job on Canada'sl My Favorite Robot Records' seventh Stimulus Package compilation. This big tune, despite having been bouncing aroung the net for quite some time, took a suprisingly long time to be signed, but we are happy that this greasy poolside beat was finally picked up and will be getting buns bouncing from Miami to Moscow. We are super proud of both Sean and the Lions, and we are certain that this year will continue to see them push forward, and before you know it, you will be seeing them rocking dancefloors in Europe.
