DRM026: Sacha Robotti

DRM026 comes from Sacha "Ricotti" Robotti: a cheese loving, pasta making, music producer of the finest grade.

Deeply Rooted Mixtape Number 26 comes to us by way of Berlin, from a dear friend of ours Sacha Robotti, who we recently had the pleasure of hosting in Toronto last December for Late & Deep #8.  We flew Sacha into Toronto purely on the gut instinct that the producer must make a serious spaghetti Bolognese, given that he has some real Italian tomato sauce in his blood.  Luckily we were right, and a beautiful friendship was forged out of hearty pasta sauce, freestyle sessions and a serious love for beats.

But all bullshit aside, the Klasse Recordings artist turned out to be a great dude, and we got a long just fine.  Recently, Sacha has been putting out some serious dancefloor grease, both as one half of Robosonic, and on his own.  As Robosonic, and through Jackmode Agency's imprint of the same name, Sacha released "The Sweetness EP" which is a smooth groovin release with a remix by the talented J. Phlip.

On his home label Klasse Recordings - - a favourite of ours here in the pit - - Sacha and label boss Luca Lozano team up for their Joyride EP which samples some classic Tears for Fears bits for a thick serving of heat, much like his home made Ragu.

Equally tasty was the news Sacha recieved while in our company that his longtime favourite imprint - - VonStroke's Dirtybird - - would be releasing his funky tune "The Major" on the commemorative "Hatched Part 1compilation.  This is a solid release which features the fine work of Claude VonStroke, Eats Everything, Kingdom and A1 Bassline.  Check it out.

We are super fucking stoked to have a third exclusive from the Klasse Family - - along with DRM008 by Mr. Ho and DRM010 by BUBBA), and I must say that this one is one of my favourite submissions to date.  This shit has been on heat street's re-peat reel for real.  This is the fucking Ragu, right here.  Better then this, only comes from seeing the monster that is Sacha Robotti playing live.

Thanks Sacha, this one is Ace!

We Fly Them: Sacha Robotti x Toronto


Click this poster to see the Facebook Event

You heard us correctly: The Deep North is flying Klasse Recordings' musical heavyweight Sacha Robotti into Toronto for a couple of shows.  This guy is going to blaze a serious trail of heat for our eighth installment of our popular all night sweatfest Late & Deep.  

Although he is not really well known in our hometown, we like to take risks and show people what good music is all about by actually showing person.  Make sure you reserve your spot by buying a discounted advance ticket from Earth & Fire on Queen Street West (489, 2nd floor), or take your chances by paying at the door.  Be one of 300 people to see this monster blow the dancefloor apart for his first time ever in Canada.  If all goes well, you will also see his label mate BUBBA in the early months of 2012 - - plans for Klasse's second arrival are already being made.

We are fucking stoked.  Here are some samples to get your mouth watering.

Luca Lozano presents The KLSUNDERGROUND001 Mixtape by Klasse Recordings DICK DIAMONDS 


Klasse Unleashes Heat.  Normal.

Sacha Robotti is a producer whom I am very fond of, namely because he is a humble dude who can make a deep or tech house track really romp and stomp with his heavy obsession with fat as fuck bass and potent kicks.  I think that him, Luca Lozano and Bubba are three of the hottest things going right now, and definitley would love to host them all here in Canada.  I have been discussing a couple of minor things with the 4-eyed house music monster of Klasse Records recently and he passed me along this brand new Fall mix, which I think would fit well in this here article about him.  What a coincidence.

The mixtape is a mix of new and older tunes, heavily edited for increased entertainment value according to Sacha.  This stuff sounds dope!!

Klasse's big boss Luca Lozano is hot on the market with his new EP, "Out of Step".  As the 9th release for Klasse, this EP has its stronger and weaker moments, but I must say that Thug It Out (Original Mix) takes the cake for me.  Although I am a big Wadsworth fan, I don't think this was his best remix, and I kind of expected more to be honest - - but what do I know.  Solid EP all around.

Keep your eyes open for Klasse's 10th Release next time you are on beatport.  The music I speak of just dropped from a new kid on the block named Florian Blauensteiner, a producer who can make horns sound cooler than claps and cowbells do in tunes.  He does a bang up job on both of his tunes on this ep,  tracks, especially 62 Steps, which I think is just amazing.  Feel the good vibes radiating off the that one.  Very good debut EP for Florian, and I really hope to hear more great stuff from him in the future.  Heres Klasse podcast 003, the latest installment in the Labels Podcast series, a real mix of genres and tantalizing flavours, get that palate ready!!  The podcast is presented by Mr. Ho, and includes mixes by Bass Bastard Bubba and the new kid Florian himself.  Bingostein!

Move, Move, Move!

I have been on a Klasse Recordings kick over the past couple of weeks, ever since my man Mr. Ho linked us up with an exclusive mix for our Deeply Rooted Mixtape series.  I must say that while originally I knew very little about most of the artists on the Klasse roster, I am now a full blown fan of a few of them, including Bubba, Mr. Ho, Luca Lozano, Turmspringer and Sasha Robotti.  This label is a team of killers.

Recently I connected with Sacha Robotti - - that is his real name apparently - - and had a chance to ask him if he could link us with a mix, which unfortunately is not in the cards at the moment.  However, Sacha is nothing short of a total stand up guy, which I learned after he offered me a few of his tracks for free because he could not contribute a mix.  One thing I can say is that all of the tracks were fire. I am totally nuts over his track with Lozano "Bartok", especially the Siopis Remix.  Check out Sacha's soundcloud to get an idea of the heat he is producing, there is enough to get the hungriest wolf's mouth wet.

After getting a pocket full of free tunes, I had to go to online in order to give back to the selfless man by buying his newest EP on Klasse Records - - The Move EP.  The EP is a strong release in my opinion and the title track, Move, is a banging tech house number with a deep, hollow bass line which gets shit going in the heart.  However, I think I prefer the remix by basshound Bubba over the original, simply because the track has Bubba's signature bass, which is always a blast of sheer power coupled with sick synth riffs.  This is a big, big tune.  The second track on the EP, named Fotograf, is an eerie tech banger with creepy vocals that is highly danceable, despite scoring high in terms of creep value.  Definitely a solid, dirty track which would fit into one of my darker sets, but not one for cheering people up in my opinion.  Check it out for yourself folks, but be warned - - the video for the original mix is possibly the coolest thing going right now!!

Check out the songs on the release through Klasse's Soundcloud, and then grab Bubba's Dance With Me for free, a sick little chunker that gets the dance floor moving hard into the late night.  Trust me, this track got the crowd hyped up at Late & Deep #2 last weekend when I dropped it.

OOOPS, Unfortunately, this song has been removed at Bubba's request after it's recent signing with the Hot Creations Label.  Wicked!!  




DRM 008: Mr. Ho

We are back after a rocky week folks, and we would like to apologize for the lack of new material here on the blog.  The past week was riddled with barriers that effectively slowed down the team and kept us from posting at our usual rate.  We could write out our lame excuses, but I think that the most people would rather hear about DRM 008, the latest installment in our Exclusive Deeply Rooted Mix Series.  This week is super exciting, so let's quit stalling and get right to the point.

I am pumped to announce that DRM 008 comes from another artist whose works we previously featured, Michael Ho, better known amongst house heads and loop-lovers as Mr. Ho.  This guy is an extremely skilled producer and an integral member of the Klasse Recordings family based in Berlin.  Klasse Recordings is a dedicated music label that deals with the good stuff we love so much here at the Deep North: House and Techno.  The label has put out quality releases from a number of badass artists including Pol_On, Luca Lozano, Bubba, Sacha Robotti, Johanna Knutsson, Minilogue and Turmspringer.

We are amped that an established artist such as Mr. Ho was so enthusiastic about making an exclusive mix for The Deep North.  His exclusive - - clocking in at almost one hour and twenty minutes - - is ultimately an act that shows real character and one's desire to promote not only themselves, but also that which they love so much.  We thank Mr. Ho, Klasse Recordings and all the other DJs who have contributed their time and effort for the fans of house music worldwide, and for the growth of the global house music scene.  After all, community is unity.

For more info on Mr. Ho, check out his facebook.

The tracklisting for this mix can be found here.
