DECKast #65 x Deep Club

Almost 4 year old label/d.i.y. party, Deep Club out of Denver, Colorado serves up an off-the-cuff 4 hour long vinyl mix for this issue of the DECKast. Ryan Scannura - curator, founder, and A&R tastemaker of the imprint, recorded this eclectic B2B session with fellow label member Occidental (Check out DC-002 Pariah Dreams EP) a couple weeks ago at his apartment.

The mix delves deep through their wax collections pulling an array of classic dance records, new school house/techno rhythms, and everything in between. The grooving chemistry of tracks shed light onto the type of sounds that Deep Club pushes on the label and likely soundtrack at their underground parties in Denver. This mix is coming in hot and so is everything they are doing right now - keep up to date with all things Deep Club here.

Read what Ryan had to say about the mix, the origins of the label, and his connection with Esteban aka Occidental below...

"Esteban (Occidental) and myself are both from central Illinois, but we didn't meet until sometime around 2012 in Denver. I had moved to Denver for graduate school, and he moved there a couple of years prior to get out of rural Illinois. I think that deep down, our common origin is why our music tastes align so well. We both grew up surrounded by cornfields, driving up to Chicago on weekends to have our minds consistently blown at Smart Bar and underground loft parties. When I met him he was one of the best djs I knew with the best record collection, and that is still true today. With his skill in mastering, cutting, and producing, along with others that we picked up along the way here in Denver (Bocaj, Lone Dancer, Ponyrok, Drew, Gant Johnson), it seemed only fitting to start a record label to showcase our own work. Since starting Deep Club in my basement in 2013, we've thrown dozens of underground parties in Denver and released 3 records. Our 4-year anniversary party is coming up next month.

This is an off-the-cuff mix from my apartment that went for several hours like we often do.
