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 eigth instalment is a guest mix provided by our good homie from Ottawa, Laocapone, who delivers a stellar combination of HipHop, R&B, House, Jersey Club, and Trap. As always with our releases, the song selection is impeccable – kudos to Laocapone for this high energy mix that will bump now and well into the future!

This mix is a compilation of songs that i’ve been bumping in my iPod and whip lately but never really get to play out. There is a lot of uptempo remixes and downtempo future rnb/hip hop type vibes. I hope y’all enjoy!

Sam Smith’s new single, “Like I Can”, gets the 2-step remix treatment from Artful (aka the legendary Artful Dodger).
Philly native Tunji Ige releases some dope visuals to a (somewhat) darker hiphop track called “Slow Dance”.
The video was built on a simple idea. Take the typical formula for a rap video, and remove all the context. No faces are shown, the location and time period are indistinct, only the common themes remain. The narrative of the video follows the violent aftermath as a gang member leaves his gang upon discovering a mystical liquid that promises invincibility. It is about the idea of greed and ownership and whatnot, but for me, the fountain is an artist’s creativity & art, and the gold mask is the artist. Everyone else is trying to get a taste of his ideas and take them from him, but he’s sustained because he’s building a legacy through his creativity, and for that reason the artist will live forever.
