DRM027: Talal & Zoi

 

It has eluded us for about a year now, maybe 10 months.  But we finally got it. A hot new T&Z Mix!!

The mysterious exclusive mix of Hushlamb and Dirtybird artists Talal & Zoi was not an easy beast to catch in the dense thicket of mix requests, but once the opportunity arose - - by way of an upcoming Hushlamb Feature @ tonight's Late & Deep, we were able to snag a sizeable catch from the talented production and DJ duo.  Super stoked, better late then never right?

Below, you will find a new tune the boys have been working on, an older remix, as well as their super cool mix and a full tracklisting. Remember that all of our previous Deeply Rooted Mixtapes can be found by clicking  on this link.

 

 A New Production By Talal & Zoi, from their Soundcloud Page:

T&Z - Didn't know his Name by Talal & Zoi

 

Talal & Zoi are two cousins who are no strangers to our events by now, and this is going to be the third L&D event they play for us.  That is pretty damn rare, because we like to give many of the artists we can a slot at the jam...but we just love these guys too much and previously brought them out twice, once being LATE & DEEP #1 the kickoff event which was headlined by the boys and Alicia Hush, and set the tone for a number of big events which would eventually follow.

 

A Favourite Track Of Ours here @ The Deep North:

CocoRosie- Noah's Ark (T & Z Remix) by Talal & Zoi

 

Tonight, the duo will close the night out at LATE & DEEP #9: Hushlamb Fam Showcase, alongside good friends and crew members Alicia Hush, Anatone and Zaid Edghaim.  With releases on labels such as BEEF, Dirtybird, Thoughtless Music, Rawthentic, Mothership, Bosphorous Underground and more, these two are no new kids on the block, and can often be found closing shows for international headliners in the city of Toronto, or outright headlining their own events with sick sets of greasy late night heat with their family members from the Hushlamb Camp.

Here is their exclusive DRM mix for our blog, which is now our 27th mix from worldwide artists.   If you like minimal, techno and some deep house, then this mix should provide you with the fix you need to

Happy New Year

NYE fireworks in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Mad heads.

I hate the title of this post, it's so fucking predictable it makes me sick. 

Despite being like 37 hours late, I'm not going to apologize because I am currently in Brazil, trying to stay away from all the bleeps and bloops that surround me on the day to day.  So excuse our slowdown over here, we will be back in action just in time for our Late & Deep #9 event with none other than Toronto's Hushlamb Crew.  The first event of 2012 will feature performances by each one of our favourite acts - - Alicia Hush, Ana+One, Talal & Zoi and Zaid Edghaim - - from the crew, a serious barrage of heat that our city should look forward to seeing pump out of the infamous 40Hz Soundsystem on January 21st. [2am - 6am]

Oh yeah, four of our resident DJs -- Book, Boots Boogie, Max the Fax and myself -- will be going b2b2b2b for the opening three hours of this party [11pm - 2am].

We dedicate this event to the wonderful Miss O'Brien and her fabulous crew, a motley crew of miscreants who love it late & deep - - like real late & deep.  And of course to the whole Hushlamb Crew, we love you guys.

For now, a couple of sweet tunes from Huxley & Russo's semi-recently released Dollsit EP, out on one of my favourite labels, Leftroom Limited .  Great release here.  Bang!

DRM024: ANA+ONE

ANA+ONE of Hushlamb productions and Siteholder records drops the 24th mix in our series!

FINALLY.

Our good pal Jesse Morrison, aka Ana+one, decided it was time to get this ass to work on his exclusive Deeply Rooted Mixtape for the blog's regular series.  Boy are we glad.  Along with his crewmates Alicia Hush and Zaid EdghaimAna+one ( "Anatone" not "Ana plus one" - - which sounds like a girl on guestlist) has now pushed the ball into the corner of Talal & Zoi, the only DJ's in the whole Hushlamb crew who have not made us a mix.  Let's hope they at least get one in to us, its now a goal of mine.

Anyways, Jesse is a quiet fellow with a great smile, a super nice guy who makes some rad music too.  With releases on Siteholder Music and a number of releases on the way, Ana+one shows that he is not a pushover when it comes to production, or DJing.  I loved Jesse's set at LATE & DEEP IV, and exclusive does not dissapoint.  The mix clocks in at 56 minutes and is a sweet string of minimal house music that reminds me how much I love the genre, yet often forget about it due to the weak representation it gets here in Toronto.  This is outside of the very few who - - like Hushlamb - - strive to keep it alive.  Check out Ana+one's tracks  on Beatport and Soudcloud quickly before hopping into this steamer like an overly eager lobster.

The tracklist can be found, as usual, on our Deeply Rooted Mixtape (DRM) page, located on the right navigation bar.  Enjoy!

Bashing Good Time Tonight

Tonight I am going to see the one and only Julio Bashmore, and it would be an understatement if I told you that I was fucking excited.  Tonights show, Galapagos 009, will also feature Julio's Dirtybird labelmates Talal & Zoi and is being put on by Faktory and Underdog, promoters with keen ears who bring some of the best shows to the Megacity.  The party is being held at one of Toronto's most well-known electronic-friendly venues - - Wrongbar - - and I have no doubts that it will be a rip-roaring good time for those in attendance.  Julio's main love is house music, but the man is known for creating tunes that often blur the boundaries between several genres (See previous article) and are in no shortage of bass - - likely due to the fact that the UK producer comes from Bristol, a well known breeding ground of bass music.  

I am going to share one of several gems produced by Julio, Battle For Middle You, an amazing number that I just can't seem to escape from, whether on my home system or at a late-night venue.  The track was released in early 2011 on PMR Records.

Also throwing in a sweet new mix by Talal & Zoi - - Uncharted Depths - - which I listened to for the first time three days ago on the group's soundcloud.  If you aren't hitting Wrongbar tonight then make sure you catch T&Z next Saturday at LATE & DEEP, an all-night event where the talented duo will play alongside Alicia Hush, Mandelephant, and the Deep North crew (Phantom Ambulance, Book, Durt Stash and myself, Dick Diamonds).  Get twisted.

Coco Puff Secrets


Talal and Zoi have been building a reputation for themselves for quite some time now. The hard working duo consisting of producers Zohaib Bakhtyar and Talal Chaudhry have a healthy serving of tasty releases under there belts on labels such as dirtybird and Toronto's own Thoughtless Music - - headed by esteemed techno producer Noah Pred.  While browsing soundcloud a few days ago I noticed the familiar name in my feed and noted that the duo just dropped this impressive remix of Noahs Ark by oddball electronic-folk duo CocoRosie. The track starts off with some tight percussive samples and a crunchy hip hop cut, and soon builds into a swirling dream of distant vocal cuts and thick bass-lines. Keep your ears out for the many subtle touches in this one, sure to get your mind dreaming.

The best part of all this?  The boys are giving this one away free of charge!  Grab it off their soundcloud page, or directly from The Deep North's cellar below (Right Click, "Save As").
