Sharam Tayebi of Deep Dish mentions: "We felt that Canada had been neglected for a long time... There's been resurgence of Canadian producers. Luke Fair, Sultan, Tone Depth, Max Graham. These guys are doing some amazing stuff. That on top of the fact that we have a good following there." His partner Ali Shirazinia - aka Dubfire - concurs. "When we say Toronto we're really saying Canada. We've met a lot of talented people and great promoters. We jumped at the chance to shine the light on them."
After the recent dilemma’s that Global Underground went through, look to be overcome this new and quarter century marking CD is not what you would expect. Sure it comes with two compiled CD’s of top benchmark quality, read for yourself as the press release states:
CD1 is a proper house mix of luscious, deeply funky grooves and spacey vocals. Deep Dish tweak the wayward bass of Meat Katie's remix of Stephane K's 'Numb' with an urgent vocal from Julie McKnight. Electroland's 'Drop Beat' flutters iron wings over subterranean rhythms. Montreal artists Sultan & The Greek contribute the hustling grooves and Middle Eastern synth swoops of 'Rezin'. And you can hear similar Arabic whisperings in Sultan's solo track, 'Nightvisions', shivering like ghosts in the groove.But to add to this, GU are releasing two additional single CD's two weeks after the main release. ‘Toronto - The Afterclub Mix’ will come in two versions - one by Dubfire, the other by Sharam, featuring both old tracks and new that define their individual sounds. Release dates are set for June 2 in the UK & major parts of the World and 10 June in the USA. Definitely something to look out for�
For CD2, Deep Dish up the stakes with a mix of riveting grooves, hot spooky vocals, strange whistles, scary sweeps, alien whistles and shrieks. Situation 2WO's 'Situation Way2tite' is a bouncing ball of a record with a husky female vocal. Sander Kleinenberg's 'Work To Do' is a punishing funk workout with a raw, soul vocal. Paul Rogers' 'Crafty' soups up its hi-NRG engine with what sounds like the distorted whistles of distant steam trains. And Maurice and Noble's 'Hoochi Koochi' has a spangly, U2-ish guitar and solemn voice bursting into a thumping groove that flows like a river.
