Let’s just start this blog off proper shall we? The Deep North are a fucking motley crew!!! They’re a team of three dudes who chose the underground of Toronto as their outlet for creativity, and that comes in the form of producing unique tracks, and showcasing them at uber-unusual venues such as basement bars in Chinatown, and most recently, defunct loft spaces on Colleges St. in the heart of Little Italy. Their marquee series, as many of you will already know, is LATE & DEEP.
Two of the three homies, Dick Diamonds and Max The Fax, joined forces to start producing as The Hermans. These two dudes completely ignore any conventional rules of mixing music and genres. In fact, they tend to create sets that really are hard to pigeon hole into a single genre. One might say that’s what makes them who they are. Hell, why bother talking about it, when we can just listen to a sample they made exclusively for our crew:
When we spoke to the dynamic duo back in April about performing with Kate Simko on June 22 @ Wrongbar, well they jumped off the computer screen and gave us a huge hug. Man, if that ain’t dedication to the cause, we really don’t know what is. This event kicks off our collaborative series, SUMMER MIXTAPE SESSIONS (SMS), a four-month residency at Wrongbar : )
The Hermans will have the set time just prior to Kate taking over the booth, so please join us on the dance floor to get things moving early.
SMS aims to offer Toronto a summer of performances with underground artists who demonstrate how being different should be the norm. All in the heart of Parkdale…
Caution – you may have a hangover after this one ; )
