It may be still be winter wherever you are, but it’s never too early to jump back into the deep end. With the start of 2014, BONES gives you the 5th installment of THE DEEP END mixtape series, featuring some of my favorites in house, deep, garage, ghetto, tech, booty, and bass line. This full hour is packed with recent and forthcoming release from the likes of Doorly, A1 Bassline, Bixel Boys, Tough Love, Playless, Shiba San, Prince Club & Poupon, Jimmy Edgar, Ruff Hauser, Gorgon City and more. Whether at work or home, drive or flight, starting the night or winding it down… take the plunge and get lost once again kids, I’ll see you on the other side.
Our mate Doorly is back at it with an exclusive track for Toolroom Records‘ 2013 Ibiza Compilation. On his Soundcloud he says he was going for something a little tougher, and the industrial/techy synth line certainly speaks volumes to that. Anxious sirens scattered throughout build anticipation as analog sounds creep up in the background to bring the track to its climax. Its anti-drop fits perfectly with the minimalistic vibes this track gives off, and be sure to cop the single on Doorly’s trackitdown page.
Yesterday, our good mate Doorly put together an 80-minute guest mix for us, featuring a handful of tunes we had never heard before. One of these tunes happened to be the closing track of the mix — a track called “disappearer” under a brand new project, Avec, consisting of Doorly and fellow UK producer, Dave Spoon (aka Shadow Child). “disappeared” is laden with piano and has an uplifting Disco House vibe to it. Oh ya, and did I mention that they brought in Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears for vocals? Yes, they did. And yes, it’s as good as you’d expect from these 3 together. Out on Southern Fried Records soon. √+
Strap on those headphones because one of the coolest dudes and best DJs in the game has got your listening schedule covered for the next 100-minutes or so. Our good mate Doorly sent over an exclusive 80-minute mix chock-full of proper house tunes perfect for those summer after hour sessions. Up late with friends waiting for the sun to poke through the horizon? Throw this on. Get the trackilisting below after the jump.
Second off we have this fantastic two-track EP forthcoming on Toolroom Records, set to be released next week on May 15th. Excellent laid back house vibes, perfect for the impending pool season (sorry Southern Hemisphere).
Also, this remix of the all-time Chicago house classic Jack Your Body by Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, forthcoming on S&S Records. This one has recently been supported by dirtybird bigwigs Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin.
If all that isn’t enough or you just want to experience one of my all-time personal favorite DJs in person and you’re in LA, this Friday at the Avalon Hollywood will be Doorly‘s last US gig before he moves back to Ibiza (Ibitha) for his annual summer residencies at We Love Sundays at the infamous Space as well as Ibiza Rocks.
VERSUS was our humble weekly event @ The Central in Santa Monica, CA over the past 2 years. We’re sad to have it come to an end, but we sent it off proper with a biblical b2b set from Skrillex x Congorock x Crookers x 12th Planet, along with Doorly and our very own Bones. We thank everyone for all the memories, never forget what we’ve built.
Our buddy, Doorly, will be coming across the Atlantic this Friday to kick off a string of 9 tour dates in the US this July. Additionally, he’s recently teamed up with beat-maker mastermind, Beardyman, for a hilarious new track and music video that really showcase Beardyman & Doorly’s sense of humor and wit. The track was released yesterday on Doorly’s Pigeonhole This! imprint, so head on over to Beatport to pick it up if you like it and check out the tour dates after the jump! Continue Reading

Coming off of two hot residencies in Spain this summer, Doorly will be coming back to the US for a healthy portion of dates on the touring Identity Festival this August and September.

On July 18th, London’s electronic rap artist, Tricky, will be releasing his much anticipated single, ‘Time To Dance,’ from his full length album titled Mixed Race on Domino Records, and the remixes have begun to surface. Luckily, two of these remixes come from two of my favorite producers from the UK: the 23 year old DJ/producer blowing up charts with her new Focus Now EP, Maya Jane Coles, and the Pigeonhole This! label boss fresh off of his month-long tour with Rusko, Doorly. Each has a unique twist on the original that Tricky says is “the closest [he's] ever gonna get to disco.”
