We kick off this first week of november with a long awaited release from the phenom AMTRAC – his newest single EP ‘Those Days’ along with 3 successfully diverse remixes from Kreap, Drel, and the infamous summertime wizard Viceroy. Each take the haunting yet soulful vocals and provided awesome renditions of the disco house spirited track, but I still favor the original mix for its big piping bassline and club fitting house appeal.
Listen to the (4) versions below, and grab them all for FREE!

Sundays always put me in a sway of classic tune-age, and who could attest the righteousness of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” Something about those infamous vocals from Stevie Nicks that you can’t help but groove to – and with the help of some familiar remixers, the track has been dusted off and revived once more! Among the many renditions out there, I have for you a sampler of my favorites; including versions by Flight Facilities, Gigamesh, Dave Edwards and Megaman & Panic City. Each of them radiate their own unique vibe, while still carrying the spirit of the original. Listen and download them all below!

After providing her angelic vocal chords on Skrillex’s ‘All I Ask Of You’ and monumental live performances alongside Porter Robinson, the “lost boy alien” known as pennybirdrabbit has finally completed her debut solo Treehouse EP, available for FREE download to all the fans. On top of that – Penny also wrote and directed the music video for the self-titled EP single, which also premiered today in conjunction to the release! Check out the video, and grab the tunes below!
A couple of days ago New Orleans natives Ryan Deffes & Barrett Bonura (aka Junk Yard Rhythm Section) dropped their new EP Falling on Cimelde Records. Falling is an extremely solid EP from start to finish, showcasing deep underlying grooves that are complimented by perfected percussion. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this EP and at the moment am really feeling Kolombo‘s remix of Falling.
LA natives Paparazzi and Over The Top are giving away some great tunage. They’ve taken Groove Theory’s single “Tell Me” and flipped it on two different scales – Paparazzi sends his to the deeper end, while OTT’s version has more energy and that Tensnake feel to it. Both of these are GOLD. Check em out below and follow the download link to support these two!
To promote the recent release of TAI’s new LOSE YOURSELF EP, Dim Mak Records is giving away the Craig Williams Remix for the fans. A monster in its own, the rolling bass and dark stabs in this one take the already massive original and sends it through the techno grinder. Grab it below for FREE, and check out more giveaways on Dim Mak’s #FreeFridays!
After much anticipation to finally put this out , I present you with BONESTHE DEEP END – Summer Mixtape 2012, a showcase of some of my favorite deep, tech, bassline, garage and funky house tracks as of current in my sets and for the season. Aside from the big tunes, there is just too much good music out there right now and I wanted to reflect a cooler groove for you to bop to this summer. Enough talking – head to the deep end, and get in over your ears.
