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 the ITZSOWEEZEE network continues to expand, so does our reach. Over the past couple of years, we’ve built strong connections across the Atlantic with all types of artists and labels. One such label is the Frankfurt-based Nu Disco Your Disco (NDYD) Records, who have been supplying us with releases from their talented roster for several months now. Previous features have included tracks from the likes of Italian producer BVRGER and Berlin representative Mogul. Two weeks ago, NDYD also gave us the privilege of premiering the latest record by one of Italy’s best-kept-secrets, MADD3E. And now, we have the pleasure of presenting MADD3E’s contribution to our monthly Spotlight Series. This twenty-ninth edition is special, as it serves as the first of back-to-back Spotlight Series releases from NDYD Records!

MADD3E, hailing from Rome, is a producer who is steadily rising in the global ranks for the past year. He has been dropping funky future bass creations with a finesse that is unmatched. His sound has a polish that is lacking from many of his production contemporaries, and this is definitely reflected in his Spotlight Series mix. Throughout the 45-minute affair, MADD3E changes the pace from many of our previous releases, and crafts a soulful blend of music ranging from chill instrumentals to hiphop and R&B, all while maintaining a vibe that is smooth as silk. As the seasons transition from summer to autumn, this is a mix that should most definitely stay in heavy rotation for those of you who simply love to groove.

My name is MADD3E, I regularly get high off music instead of drugs. In my mind this mix could also be run as “ITZSOWEED” for it is very relaxing and gets you high too.

PREMIERE: MadD3E – #TTFU

Posted by: noble savage on 23/08/2016 in Featured, Music

madd3e ttfu

As the summer slowly comes to a close in Toronto, everyone is trying to take advantage of the nice weather with barbecues, patio nights, and great music to dance the night away. On that note, it’s an honour to have the privilege of premiering “#TTFU”, a brand new future bass heater by Italian producer MadD3E that provides the perfect soundtrack to the end of the season. On the track, MadD3E layers melodic piano stabs over a smooth bass bounce, and couples it with just the right amount of hi-hats and vocal samples to flourish. The real highlight of the record, however, comes at 1:50, when the bass moves aside in favour of a beautifully melodic piano solo that’s reminiscent of the work by Kenishiro Nishihara (look him up if you don’t know the name). At 2:35, the track comes full circle with the return of the infectious bounce and adds to it with increasingly stuttered drums. This is a song you’ll want to play as the sun sets, the last few breaths of summer breeze through the air, and the night’s celebrations are in full gear. Trust.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: WAVGODS (ITZ036)

Posted by: noble savage on 09/06/2017 in Featured, Mixes, Music, Releases

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.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since we started the Spotlight Series. What began as an effort to showcase mixes from our crew and our many talented friends, ended up connecting us with so many dope artists from all over the planet. We’ve featured the likes of Ikaz Boi from France, Star.One from the UK, Live Evil from Vancouver, gahn from San Francisco/Oakland, MADD3E from Italy, Triv from Wisconsin, and our friends from closer to home such as Pat Drastik, DJ Illo, Yuknodis, Jayemkayem, Freeza Chin, Krubera, Nick Bike, Internet Daughter, and so many more (see all the releases here). We’ve made it to the 36th, and FINAL, edition of the series. After three years, we feel like it’s time to create something new – so while the Spotlight Series is coming to a close, keep it locked for new projects from us in the not-so-distant future. With that being said, it made sense to cap off the ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series by shining a light on the younger generation from our city and passing the torch to Toronto production crew WAVGODS.

We first met WAVGODS when DeMiggs and beat sampras were asked to DJ a party at Rightfoot Studio, hosted by David Forteau. With a studio space filled with professional dancers, the onus was on the DJs to ensure that the vibes were 100% on point. Opening the night were WAVGODS, a young duo with an energy that very few DJs in the city possess. Needless to say, they caught our ears and DeMiggs made it a point to keep in touch with them ever since. From early 2016 onward, we’ve been featuring their originals, remixes, and mixes, and it was only right to ask them to contribute a guest mix for the Spotlight Series. On their mix, the guys deliver a superbly-blended 40-minute collection of genre-bending tracks with one goal in mind: to keep you dancing. We seriously dare any of you to listen and not start nodding your head instantly. Infectious and carefully-considered track selection is definitely at play throughout the mix. Thank you WAVGODS for this final chapter of the Spotlight Series – it captures the essence of what ITZSOWEEZEE is all about. Salute.
