ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series highlights the incredibly talented DJs and producers that make up the ITZSOWEEZEE ranks, as well as our extended music family. Each month, we deliver a fresh mix that reflects the diverse style and flavour of our crew. This is an opportunity to “meet” our selectors, enjoy some amazing free music, and understand why we command the respect that we do.
As another summer comes to a close, we know that most people are going to be spending as much time as they can on patios, rooftops, and beaches. Especially in Toronto, where the summer seems to fly by each year, it’s important to take advantage of the warm weather while it lasts. For the seventeenth edition of our Spotlight Series, our special guest DJ this month has cooked up the perfect soundtrack to do just that. Hailing from Saskatoon (but now based out of Toronto), Muneshine is an accomplished emcee, producer, and engineer, and has some great accolades to prove it. He’s received FOUR Juno nominations, a SOCAN Echo Songwriting Award, and been long listed for the Polaris Music Prize twice. While traditionally seen as the quintessential “hiphop head”, Muneshine has an appreciation, not to mention skill, for a wide variety of musical genres. Straying away from his hiphop roots, he’s blessed us with an hour-long mix of house and nu-disco vibes that are guaranteed to set the mood for any type of summer fun. Consider this a gift to you as you enjoy the final pool parties, patio/rooftop jams, and cottage/beach trips of the season.
For the last few months I’ve really been gravitating towards house and the numerous variations of the genre. Coming up as a hiphop DJ/producer I was always a fan of dance music, but rarely had the opportunity to really explore it and/or share it. This collection of songs both makes me happy and feels right for the season. I hope you enjoy the mix!
