Gentlemen Hall‘s “Sail Into The Sun” has not only infiltrated radio by being the backdrop to Samsung and Target commercials…its also become a bonafide Summer anthem. With cheery lyrics and a laid back attitude, it’s hard to not imagine bikinis and lakeside bonfires with this on in the background.
Three Chicago artists take a stab at the track on two separate remixes – Dani Deahl & Animale turn the track into a main room blitzer with Dutch-like synths that rise into a crescendo. It’s countered by blithe breakdowns with the plinking music-box sounds from the original and uplifting melodies, but it doesn’t stay silent for long. Expect to hear this one on the summer festival circuit, notably Dani’s performance @ EDC Chicago!
Chicago’s Sam Padrul capitalizes on the track’s breezy qualities and shifts it into a nu-disco jam. Replete with lush chords and dripping with funk, Padrul eschewed most of the supplied stems, opting to just use the vocals while writing all his own instrumentation. Catch a summer vibe on this one…
This four track EP by Steve Huerta on Amadeus Records is sexy, deep house with a club-friendly demeanor geared for the summer. Throbbing bass, bubbly synths, intricate vocal work and sampling, spot-on grooves and percussion, filtered pad work. It takes you deep– very deep– but in a friendly sort of way that Steve is carving out as his signature. I’ve always loved what he does with the vocal samples that he combs the sonic world to find, and he’s got a hauntingly good sense of atmosphere that is at this point unmistakable. All wraps up nicely by an even deeper remix by Urulu, another favorite of ours. Everything these two put out just keeps getting better and better. I’m on board and hereby offer my unconditional endorsement.
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.
*Featuring the music of Cajmere, Justin Martin, Hot Since 82, Shadow Child, Julio Bashmore, Eats Everything, Amine Edge, Pleasurekaft, Nick Monaco & Kill Frenzy, Them Jeans, Disclosure, Zombie Disco Squad and MORE!

This week marked the official start of summer, and what better way to welcome my next mix – dedicated the almighty festival season and of course the infamous 3 month vacation that all you people know and love. I’m sure most of you will be hitting the road to Las Vegas this weekend for the big one, so this is your goto firestarter for the road trip ahead. For all those otherwise, pump this at work, while you’re pre-gaming before going to the Avalon (or our VERSUS party), stuck in not cool traffic, or when the DJ you booked for your ‘glow’ party just ain’t bringin it. Welcome to summer my dirty dancers, get after it.
For most, Summer is here. Whether that means no school, summer school, no job, summer job, pool parties, or more parties, we welcome this season with open arms and suntan lotion. Toronto based Jeremy Glenn might not get as glorious rays as you SoCal babes, but he’s a huge supporter of maintaining Summer vibes. Why? Because he realizes that you’d much rather spend your money on piña coladas instead of mp3s, so he’s giving away his sun-drenched track ‘New Life’ for free. If you muster up the spirit, you should purchase his EP which comes out on Future Classic Records out of Australia on June 20th.
What’s good Dirty Dancers? With the summer just around the corner, we’ve taken the liberty to put together a guide amassing Europe’s best EDM festivals, for your perusal. The guide will be easily accessible and on the right hand side of the blog all summer. We’ll be keeping it updated as fresh names are added to each bill.
So without further ado, European festival season kicks off after the jump…
