One of this countries most legendary house night has sadly come to an end.

Congrats to Vernon, Honey and everyone else who ran this night....

local dj's like Vernon, Jay Tripwire, Tyler Stadius, Tyler Lewis, DJ Ali holding down 1's and 2's. Plus some of the best out of town talent in the world, Deepen @ Lotus was truly a staple of house music in this country.

I was fortunate enough to make the flight out to BC to play this night, great people, great night, best of luck in the future Vern!

That's some crazy shit. Deepen at Lotus holds a very VERY special place in my heart. When I lived in Van, I partied there every Saturday night for 2 years straight (maybe even 3 years). Lots of amazing music, good friends and of course - tequila ;) . Chani and Vern always treated me so well... they are the true definition of soul. And the djs!! All of them - Vern, Jay, Tyler(s) - were so on point. It was such a rare treat to be exposed to that level of music every weekend. Only in my older years do I come to realize how lucky i was to have that calibre of talent at my finger tips.

This is very sad news indeed.

long live deepen
