Lost in Sound 14: Deepak Sharma's "Don't Go Home on New Year's" Mix

Welcome to Dontforgettogohome.org. Like what you see and hear? Please join us on Facebook and Twitter!

For the 14th episode of our Lost in Sound series we’re taking a break from disco this time around and delving deep into techno with NYC’s Deepak Sharma of Hidden Recordings. He’ll be laying down his edgy, deep grooves in style at District 36’s techno hoedown this New Years Eve (or rather, New Years Day). Not to be missed - check out more details here. Tune in for a taste of what you’re in for this weekend…

New York’s Deepak Sharma has been a techno mainstay here in the city for years – he can tell you stories from raging at Shelter, Bugaloo and the legendary Robots party with Bill Patrick and Co. As a DJ and producer within the scene Sharma’s kept a modest profile, playing for underground crowds and managing his label, Hidden Recordings, which he founded in 2006. “Hidden” seems a fitting name for Sharma’s philosophy behind the imprint: instead of spewing out new releases on a monthly basis to stay in the spotlight he’s opted for a quality-over-quantity mantra. Over the year’s he’s collaborated with various talents from underground communities worldwide. Shortly after he launched his label Sharma joined forces with Germany’s Dieter Kruse, now his production partner in crime.

Their newest release, The Great Lawn EP, catapulted Hidden Recordings from New York’s best-kept secret to international acclaim. The EP is Sharma’s and Kruse’s first remix project and features a large cast of cutting-edge talent (Ambivalent, Alexi Delano, Franklin DeCosta, to name a few). Since the Lawn hit the shelves, Sharma & Co. have been all the buzz, featured in respected music mags such as XLR8R and Big Shot. Our founder here at Home Headquarters, Bianca Von Baum even sat down with the Hidden boss earlier this year for a tête-à-tête. Check out the interview here.

At the dawn of his gig this New Years Eve at District 36 he’s provided us with this exclusive mix for our 14th episode. This mix, which was recorded at his label night on Oct. 22nd at Bar 13 is a journey into sound indeed - deep, raw and rich with banging tracks drenched in heady, intoxicating melodies. This mix will surely rev you up just in time for the countdown this Friday.

We hope you all have a blast this New Year’s Eve, party hard and whatever you do (or wherever you go), don’t forget to go home…
