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

Hello Thoughtless! Farewell Sleazy!

 Thoughtless Music's latest release - - the "Suffering Remixed EP" for Deepchild's "The Suffering Ones" - - was featured as a Beatport Exclusive yesterday.I would like to talk about the new remix ep that just dropped on Toronto's own Thoughtless Music imprint for Deepchild's late night (or more like early to mid morning) banger: "The Suffering Ones".  

Australian producer Rick Bull - - commonly known as Deepchild - - has become a staple of sorts for the global underground EDM community, releasing over 50 tunes on a plethora of international imprints.  One would be hard pressed to actually say they have not danced to one of his tunes in a club, somewhere, sometime.  Rick has been making some serious moves in the past year putting out a solid block of tunes which have left a solid bootprint on the face of dancefloors everywhere.

The latest addition to his drum-clip of dance bullets just so happens to be an absolutely air tight package of full metal remixes of "The Suffering ones", a track which we featured earlier this year on the blog.  I was excited to hear the clip click exclusively into digital super-retailer Beatport's merchant machine gun two days ago, ready to unleash a heavy barrage of heat filled with searing selections touched by a super talented lineup made up of Tim Xavier, Arthur Oskan, Noah Pred, XI, [a]pendics.shuffle, Gingy & Bordello and The Deep North's own resident killers Sean Roman and Phantom Ambulance. 

This hot little package includes remixes from a slew of talented local and international artists, both established names and fast rising tastemakers. I was super excited to see that Phantom Ambulance (the Deep Norths own "Max the Fax" alogside fellow muscian and kindred spirit Maxwell Lucas) had their way with the tune, Turning it upside down and bringing it back from a whole different angle.  Resident Sean Roman who just released on Hot Waves 002 with "Sarah's Song" provided his signature sultry vibe to the tune which resonated well with me.

since the release is hot off the press i will include the beatport player in hopes that all you fellow music lovers take the opportunty to go grab the release and not only support these talented remixers who made this such a solid clip of fire, but also those who are fronting the #Occupy Toronto movement that dares to shake the status quo in the name of change.  All of the artists on this release have agreed to donate all proceeds of the first 99 EP sales, as well as 1% of all sales, to the occupy chapter in  the imprints hometown of Toronto. If thats not your thing then you can rest assured that at the end of the day you will be getting some hot tunes from some hot cats, while putting some coin in their pocket. Enough said.  Now check it...

Go to Beatport.com Get These Tracks Add This Player
Keep your eyes peeled for a Deep North Exclusive from Thoughtless Musica FREE 320 kbps remix of Deepchild's tune by none other then our very own resident Max the Fax.  Check Back later today!
We throw it up for our crewmates and good friends at Thoughtless Music for their hard work and dedication to making music that is good, while maintaining some social conciousness in the process.  The Deep North salutes you!
We also bid farewell to our good friend Bea Sleazy, who unfortunately is going on indefinate leave from the blog due to mounting personal obligations with life, work and school.  We thank her for her contributions over the past few  months, and know she will be part of the Deep North Family for a long time to come.  You don't meet people that solid often, as we all know. Much love!

DRM023: JAMIE KIDD

Deeply Rooted Mixtape No. 23 comes from Toronto's techno hero Jamie Kidd. Unlike these Techno deprived freaks, the zombies move a lot faster during one of Jamie's popular live sets.

Smile kids, its Friday!  Hard to believe the best day of the week has ambushed us again, it feels like this week has just blown right by in the blink of an eye.  This is a heavily loaded weekend here in Toronto, with tons of great shows on the agenda, all of which are listed on my favourite website Resident Advisor.  The Deep North will be personally involved in two hot jams this weekend: Thoughtless' Escape from Babylon party tonight and tomorrow we will be co-hosting Sean Roman's birthday party at a new venue for Deep Under Ground: Chinatown.  Check them both out!

Tonight's going to be a heavy one for the Deep North, as our resident DJ's Phantom Ambulance open up the Thoughtless Music monthly which includes none other than NYC's Brendon Moeller, Brandon Oliver (Curb Crawlers founder Brandon Sek's new alias ) and Toronto duo Metalogic.  The party is extra special this month as it is the EP release party for Metalogic's Hollow Strangers EP (TLM056) a fantastic album featuring the work of two techno monsters Dietrich Schoenemann and Brian Zentz.  The entire package is fucking nasty, but I personally think that the sub-filled low roller Volatiles takes the cake as my favourite bruiser of the bunch.

Metalogic, a duo made up of Toronto's Frederik Hatsav and local club hero Jamie Kidd, come back strong on this bone rattling EP following their remix of Ludwig Coenen for TLM022 and a number of lauded releases on labels such as Nachtstrom Schallplatten and Perc Trax.  Pick this album up on limited edition vinyl through decks.de or digitally on Juno, which includes an the exclusive track Volatiles.

TLM056: Metalogic - Hollow Strangers (Bryan Zentz Empty Vessel Dub)  >>> [BUY IT]

 

Jamie Kidd of Metalogic spinning one of Toronto's notorious Cherry Beach Parties this past summer.

 

Metalogic's Jamie Kidd is a well known figure in Toronto's -- recently booming -- underground techno scene.  As a resident dj for titan techno promoters Platform Entertainment, Jamie has played nearly everywhere alongside some of the worlds greatest producers including Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler, Maceoplex, Matthew Dear, Claude VonStroke, Trentmoeller and many, many others.  This is an action packed month for the Toronto DJ, producer and jazz/funk band bassist, with releases as Metalogic and a solo remix on Toronto's Roots and Wings Music due out on November 21st.  Jamie Kidd is also co-headlining  our monthly party Late & Deep #7 next weekend with Basic Soul Unit, which we are super stoked about.

Michael & Ryan - Pills & Needles (Jamie Kidd Remix) >>> RW029 [Available Nov 21] 

 Listen to a couple of older tunes by Jamie Kidd's duo before you listen to his exclusive Deeply Rooted Mixtape, available only here at the Deep North.  The mix is a live recording of a wicked set Jamie played on October 1st, 2011 for the TechNoir Warehouse Party put on during Toronto's Nuit Blanche evening of art.

This next tune was not named after me, but I like to pretend that it was.

Metalogic - Diamonds by Roots and Wings Music

  Perc - Mandrake (Metalogic Remix) by Metalogic

Perc & Metalogic - Bouncer by Metalogic

 

So here it is folks, Jamie Kidd's submission for our Deeply Rooted Mixtapes Series, the twenty-third installment in what is becomming a great catalogue of wonderful mixes.  Unfortunately, we do not have a tracklisting for this live mix as of yet, but keep checking back to see if we put it up in the future.  We would like to thank Jamie for this submission and all of the great contributions he has made to the techno-music scene in Toronto and beyond.  Look out for this guy in Europe during 2012, as he makes a move out there for a hopefully temporary stint in the worlds electronic music continent.  Make sure you come back brother, Toronto loves you!

Deep + Children = Fire

Rick Bull, aka Australian-gone-Euro producer and DJ Deepchildis not you ordinary EDM artist.  Aside from taking seriously avant-garde promotional picturesRick Bull is different because he is a stand up guy who keeps his ego-trippin' to a bare minimum.  In other words, this cat is one fucking down-to-earth individual.  I was lucky enough to catch Deepchild playing (read: smashing) last month at Li'ly for a room packed full of people who had reached out for Deepchild's set at another infamous Thoughtlless Music party.  The show was fantastic, with sets by Phantom Ambulance, Alicia Hush, Fairmont, Deepchild and label owner Noah Pred.

I got a chance to speak -- and smoke numerous cigarettes - - with Rick after his set, finding out the hard way that he is quite the conversationalist.  The chit chat was so good that I nearly missed Noah Pred's entire set.  Bummer.  Anyways, I was able to get Rick to clear a few tracks for me to share at lower quality through thedeepnporth.ca.  Below you will find a few 128's for download.

The accomplished producer has had official releases on approximately 50 imprints including Thoughtless, Get Physical, Trapez, Resopal Schallware, Anabatic Records, Freerange, and BEEF Records.  This guy is a killer.  Check out all of his digital releases here. If you would like to see an exclusive mix for our DRM Series by Deepchild, make sure you leave a comment stating so on his FB fan page.

Check out this video for Deepchild's latest release on Thoughtless Music called The Suffering Ones.  Word has it that an official remix EP is on the way, which will include versions by The Deep North's very own Phantom Ambulance and good friend Sean Roman among a number of other cool artists.

Thanks for the tunes Rick!

DRM 014: Noah Pred

The 14th submission in our exclusive DRM mix series comes from Noah Pred, a great producer, DJ, buinessman and leader in the Canadian Techno scene and beyond.  The owner of the successful Thoughtless music imprint is a very busy guy who -- despite his constant hustle -- always finds the tme to invest in the well being of the artists on his label, put together fun events to help promote those artists and also to help those who have helped help him in the past.  With releases on Thoughtless, My Favourite Robot and New Kanada, among others, Noah Pred has established himself among the top techno producers out there.

Take a moment to download this wonderful exclusive mix that Noah sent us.  The mix is actually a live recording of a recent set Noah did at Li'ly, a Toronto bar & afterhours club - - one which sees a number of top producers and DJs rock out at.  Noah was also kind enough to share two amazing tracks with the readers of the Deep North, Milk Thistle and my personal favourite Unsung FWD Dub, both released on the Thoughless imprint. Enjoy!

More Exclusives: Sean Roman & Jeff Rhodes

Another exclusive?  You know how it is here at The Deep North, we always share the goodies we get when we can.  Our boy Sean Roman is on fire right now, developing dance floor monsters that in my opinion, are some of the baddest house heaters coming out of Canada at the moment.  Recently Sean sent me a few tracks of his, many of which had recently been signed to killer labels such as Hot Waves, , Act Natural, Assembly and My Favourite Robot.  While all the tracks were serious heaters, my very favourite was one called Quirks, which he produced with Jeff Rhodes.


SEAN ROMAN & JEFF RHODES - QUIRKS .......... Download below.

While the -- suprisingly -- unsigned song is very simple, the vocal loop and the bassline werre destined to be together, combining to help create an infectiously catchy track that has me shaking without every day unless I get my fix - - a quirky dose on a phat set of speakers.

Sean told me at Late & Deep III this past weekend that I could put it up on the blog as an exclusive to share with the readership - - so here I am.  While I am stoked and honoured to share it with the world via the Deep North, I am only going to share the 128kbps version.  Why?  Simply because I think that Sean should hold out until someone realizes that this track is a wicked party jam that needs to be released.  In the meantime, here is the 128kbps version to get y'all excited.  Someone pick this one up please.

You can catch Sean Roman alongside DR.DVS, Pavel Elkin and myself Dick Diamonds, this Friday night at Augusta House for Nevernight - - a FREE jam I am putting together for fun.  It's always a good time seeing sean rip it up, so reach out if you want to hear some Deep House and Techno treats from this guy.  Check out the details for this event on Resident Advisor.

DRM 013: Zaid Edghaim

What a hectic week.  I hope everyone is as stoked as I am to see Deepchild, Noah Pred, Alicia Hush and our very own Phantom Ambulance tonight at Li'ly resto lounge for the official Phantom Ambulance Medicine EP release party.  I just wish that our friend and Thoughtless Music artist Zaid Edghaim would also be in attendance, because word on the street is that he won't be making it.

Like they say, there is something good to be found in every bad situation.  So, while Zaid won't be there to celebrate with us tonight, the good news is that we have a new exclusive mix from him to add to our blazing hot Deeply Rooted Mixtape collection.  I got this sweet set from Zaid over a week ago, but the unstoppable DRM transport trucks have been unloading hot mix after mix on us, causing a serious roadblock of mixes on the trans-northern musical highway.

Get ready for a sweet journey through the deep, minimalist reaches of heaven.  People, this mix is nothing short of amazing, so buckle up, and keep your hands and feet out of the aisle.

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").
