From the Deep #006 ft FADEL (1st Hour) & TAPESH (2nd Hour)

Finally the mixes have been uploaded ;) Last months special episode of From the Deep did not even feature a mix from myself as usual. That spot was taken by a good friend of mine that I have shared the decks with, Fadel. The second hour was where the madness took over and Tech House sensation Tapesh joined in! Check out both mixes below!

1st Hour: Fadel

Fadel, born Fadel Lahlou is a Deep House, House & Tech-House Producer // DJ // Remixer // Live Act Percussionist established in Montreal, Canada.

Whether it is Deep House,Tech-House, or Upbeat House, Fadel takes you on trippy, groovy and well crafted melange of electronic genres creating a unique melodic, percussive and vocal ambiance in any clubs he takes control of. His sets were were showcased on several online radios such as, Pulse Radio,, and Alessandro Vince's podcast.

2nd Hour: Tapesh

May it be Ibiza, London or Dubai: there are few Djs with a more international touch than “finally famous” Tapesh, and even fewer whose style you could identify as really unique. At a time when most people couldn’t spell the word DJing, young teenage Tapesh dived into the growing US and UK Breakdance, Funk & Acid House scene and uncovered an enormous musical talent that soon got acknowledged by real stars like Loco Dice, Richie Hawtin or Marco Carola. His multi-cultural roots, as well as his experience and feeling for mixing the popular with the uncommon give Tapesh’ sets that flamboyant magic-potion touch you will only find one in a million. This special “Tapesh-feeling” is also recognisable in his own productions, which are released by top labels like Snatch!, Rebirth, Monique Musique,Defected or Noirmusic and by now get regularly played in Pete Tong’s world famous BBC radio show. But that’s not all: For those who live on the rest of the planet, Tapesh already started a huge world tour, which means even more locations, more fans, and certainly - more fame.

Along with his solo productions, his debut album also includes collaborations with some key artists and guest vocalists. Structured over two discs, the album commences with a beautiful cinematic soundscape on CD1 with CD2 allowing Stelios to showcase more of a club sound, which develops from deep house grooves right through to a techier acidic vibe. Both discs are exquisitely blended and mixed, with each track meshing itself into the next to create a stunning debut album from this very talented artist.

"The Journey" #015 Guest Tom Flynn [InsomniaFM]

Awarded the 'Best Break Through Producer of 2010' award by Pete Tong, England's Tom Flynn is renowned as one of House musics most respected forward thinking producers. An International DJ, Producer, Engineer and Remixer, Tom has regularly graced the worlds biggest dance floors as well as gaining an army of fans along the way. His DJ sets range through the whole spectrum of house, from deep to techno, which also reflects itself in his productions and remixes.

Having released on labels such as Anabatic, Dirtybird, BreakNewSoil, Clarisse, Deadfish, SIZE, etc etc, it's not hard to see why Tom has gained praise and recognition from the cream of the worlds best DJ's. His music can regularly be heard on Pete Tongs Essential Selection show on BBC Radio 1, where he has also won the 'Essential New Tune' for 'Bianca', as well as in the record boxes of Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Dubfire, Yousef, Claude Vonstroke, Booka Shade, Mendo and Loco Dice. Several Music Magazines and Blogs have recently sited Tom as one of House musics brightest stars and it's easy to see why.

Coming from a very musical background, there was only one way Tom was going to go once House music had been discovered at the early age of 12. From recently learning to play piano to picking up studio secrets from mentor Lee Fisher (of MOTHER fame), and studying music at college, Tom has been hard at work in and out of the studio ever since. "I really love nothing more than progressing and learning as an artist, producer and engineer, trying to do something new, different and pushing this sound of ours forward"
