Canadian producer Mat Lunnen comes up with the goods for the long-running Vancouver label

Based in Vancouver, Deepen Sound (formerly Deepen Discs) have been in the game for 21 years. That suggests they know a good house tune when they hear one – as does this latest nugget, which comes from Ontario's Mat Lunnen.

Gimme The Life is presented quite simply in a choice of just two mixes. The A-side's the one for yours truly, being a decidedly garage-leaning affair with female vocal cut-ups, reverberating keys and a gorgeously fat n' warm bassline. But to be fair, the remix from Jon Delerious – which tones down the garage-y elements while swapping out the b-line for something a tad more Windy City-esque – isn't far behind it!

With two very playable mixes to choose from, this release will be a welcome addition to any deep house spinner's arsenal.
