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.
One of the things that we love about our role as tastemakers is that we get to connect with so many awesome people from all over the world. The internet has made it possible for our network to extend across North and South America, to Europe, and even all the way to Asia and Australia. Back in the spring we had the opportunity to meet and host French producer Ikaz Boi on his first trip to Toronto. Hailing from Nantes, Ikaz is a well-respected talent who has worked with many European and North American artists, including Vic Mensa, Leather Corduroys, and Myth Syzer on the absolute banger, “HAVE U EVA” (which we featured in May). His remix game is insane as well, with his tracks having garnered hundreds of thousands of plays on his own SoundCloud. As Ikaz’ star continues to rise, we know that he’ll continue to deliver heat and we’re more than happy to present his contribution to our Spotlight Series. For the sixteenth instalment, he gives a 40 minute taste of his signature bass-heavy sound, slowing things down for the first half before turning up the energy in the second. If you’re a lonely girl from Toronto, press play immediately, as that’s exactly what Ikaz intended:
Mix for the girls from Toronto when they are alone.

Shakedown is Brighton, UK’s largest music festival, with over 40 performers and 15,000 attendees per year. Part of the festival includes the Shakedown 2015 DJ Competition, in which five winners will be selected to perform live on the main stage alongside some of the biggest names in electronic music today. ITZSOWEEZEE’s own Soundbwoy just dropped a nasty live mix as his submission to the judging panel. It’s a bass-heavy affair that spans a multitude of genres, proving, once again, that Soundbwoy is a force to be reckoned with.
