On Saturday, November 28th, we return to Drake Underground (1150 Queen St W, Toronto) for our monthly ITZSOWEEZEE party. Behind the decks will be our very own Tom Wrecks (fresh off tour), DeMiggs, and ΛV. We could go on about how awesome our jams are, but we’re pretty sure you already know that by now. Check out the pictures from last month’s party to see for yourself. As always, get on the guestlist, arrive early, and be ready to dance. See you all on Saturday.
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.
For the twentieth edition in the series, we’ve again turned to our friends in the Bedroomer camp and recruited up-and-coming Toronto DJ/producer Internet Daughter for a stellar guest mix. Internet Daughter is redefining what it means to be a female DJ in a male-dominated field, refusing to cater to the usual thirsty fanboys, and shaking up the competition with her own style and flavour. While she’s only been on the “scene” for a short while, she’s already made a name for herself by releasing a number of her own bass-heavy creations on SoundCloud. Most recently, she was featured on THUMP for “Runnin”, her collaboration with fellow Toronto producer Noahplause, which also served as their contribution to the Drake-sampling Bedroomer x Drizzy series (see all of the releases in our previous posts). For her Spotlight Series mix, Internet Daughter showcases the tracks that she’s been feeling of late, and provides a taste of her aggressive party-rocking method. This is a 45 minute affair that you don’t want to miss – trust.
People always ask me “What do you play?”, and it’s kind of hard to describe, so I put this mix together to show what I’ve been fucking with over the past year. My influences are all over the map and I wanted to share a few songs from each to give people an Idea of what they can expect when I DJ and where my own music is coming from.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Internet Daughter (ITZ020)
Toronto rapper SAFE has been on the come up this year, connecting with producer Eric Dingus (among others), dropping some slick visuals to his Sade-sampling single “Feel”, and receiving multiple co-signs from the OVO camp. Now, the rising star drops his debut EP, Stay Down, and it’s full of the moody, ethereal sounds that have taken The 6 by storm. On the project, SAFE shows off his ability to coast over bass-filled beats, switching effortlessly between rapping and crooning, while never letting his style seem stale. Press play and listen to all eight of the tracks – we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
Toronto production super crew, and our good friends, the Bedroomer posse, release Volume II, the follow-up to their stellar 2014 mixtape, Volume I.
