On Saturday, November 29th, we are pleased to be celebrating a very special event: the 50th edition of our monthly ITZSOWEEZEE party at the Drake Underground (1150 Queen Street West, Toronto). That’s right, this month marks FIFTY wild jams with the crew, and if you’ve ever attended one of our events, you know how insane our nights always turn out. This jam also marks the return of our own Tom Wrecks (ITZSOWEEZEE co-founder, 1/2 of THUGLI), fresh off the Every Nite Tour with Keys N Krates and gLAdiator, who will be playing alongside DeMiggs and ΛV. Check out the photos from last month’s party – then up the energy by 10x, and you’ll get a slight indication of how crazy we expect this party to be! Get on the guestlist and arrive early – we will reach capacity and tear the walls down as usual!
♪ Tom Wrecks (THUGLI / ITZSOWEEZEE)
♪ DeMiggs (THEM / ITZSOWEEZEE)
♪ ΛV (ITZSOWEEZEE)
Doors @ 11PM. Guestlist closes at 12AM sharp!

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series is a new mix series that highlights the incredibly talented DJs and producers that make up the ITZSOWEEZEE ranks, as well as our extended music family. Each month, we’ll bring you 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.
The ninth instalment features a very special guest representing Vancouver, Nick Bike, who comes through with a jaw-dropping mix of heaters that span a range of different genres, while showcasing his own turntable wizardry (the man is a Red Bull Thr3estyle champion for a reason). Turn the volume up, press play, and get ready to be taken for a ride!

This mix reflects a small portion of what I’m listening to and playing out recently – some hard hitting, others not so much. I like music from many different eras and styles but within this mix you will find some new rap, weird beats, house, and other synthy/subby stuff. I included some great tracks from Canadian friends Pat Lok, Keys N Krates, and Kutcorners. Good for most occasions – load up and dig in!
