PREMIERE: Iyer – Left Out

Posted by: noble savage on 18/09/2015 in Featured, Music

iyer left out

Our friends at Bedroomer have a blessed us with the opportunity to premiere their latest release, “Left Out” by Toronto’s own Iyer. Iyer is a producer who specializes in electronic sounds with a heavy footwork influence, and is the co-founder of Singapore-based record label, Phyla Digital. “Left Out” serves as an addition to Bedroomer’s ongoing series of Drake-sampling records (see Eytan Tobin and Lum’s Bedroomer x Drizzy EP, and Internet Daughter and Noahplause’s “Runnin”), as Iyer reworks “Hotline Bling” into an instantly infectious and frenetic footwork heater. Propelled by heavy bass and tumultuous drum work, while maintaining the integrity of Drake’s syrupy vocals and just enough of the original’s Timmy Thomas sample, the record is a refreshing take on one of the hottest singles of the summer.

Another addition to our on going tribute to Drake’s influence on dance music with his undeniably perfect voice for sampling and songs that just beg for a bootleg.
– Bedroomer

iyer is the irony of accessible music against obviously irrelevant caste and status. currently specializing in footwork, iyer’s influences vary across the uptempo electronic music spectrum while incorporating the rhythm and groove ideology fundamental to traditional South Indian ‘kuthu’ music, among other styles. the end goal is to find the connection between the two. having released on various labels, iyer also co-founded Phyla Digital which predominantly releases but is not limited to Singaporean electronic music.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Muneshine (ITZ017)

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 another summer comes to a close, we know that most people are going to be spending as much time as they can on patios, rooftops, and beaches. Especially in Toronto, where the summer seems to fly by each year, it’s important to take advantage of the warm weather while it lasts. For the seventeenth edition of our Spotlight Series, our special guest DJ this month has cooked up the perfect soundtrack to do just that. Hailing from Saskatoon (but now based out of Toronto), Muneshine is an accomplished emcee, producer, and engineer, and has some great accolades to prove it. He’s received FOUR Juno nominations, a SOCAN Echo Songwriting Award, and been long listed for the Polaris Music Prize twice. While traditionally seen as the quintessential “hiphop head”, Muneshine has an appreciation, not to mention skill, for a wide variety of musical genres. Straying away from his hiphop roots, he’s blessed us with an hour-long mix of house and nu-disco vibes that are guaranteed to set the mood for any type of summer fun. Consider this a gift to you as you enjoy the final pool parties, patio/rooftop jams, and cottage/beach trips of the season.

For the last few months I’ve really been gravitating towards house and the numerous variations of the genre. Coming up as a hiphop DJ/producer I was always a fan of dance music, but rarely had the opportunity to really explore it and/or share it. This collection of songs both makes me happy and feels right for the season. I hope you enjoy the mix!

Rising Toronto songstress TEA just released her debut mixtape, Dangerous Drinking Games, and with it, she announces her talent in full force. Many months in the making, the project features six future R&B tracks that are going to be heard far and wide for a long time. We had the pleasure of attending her listening session last night, and want to congratulate her and the entire team on the first of many great accomplishments to come. Features include emcees Kavale on the remix edition of “Syrup”, and J Reyez on the NASTY banger “Cadillac”. Make sure you take in the visuals to “Sippin Rainbows” in our previous post, and definitely check back for more of TEA’s releases in the future.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Ikaz Boi (ITZ016)

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.

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.

The past several instalments of the series featured guest appearances by some of our good homies in this here music game. So, for the fifteenth volume, we decided that we’d bring it back in-house and shine the spotlight back on ourselves for a hot minute. Thus, ITZSOWEEZEE co-founder DeMiggs returns with his second contribution to the Spotlight Series, and damn it feels good. The entire mix features a hot selection of FUTURE sounds – future bass, future hiphop, future R&B, future trap and a whole lot more. Basically the bearded bandit is taking us BACK TO THE FUTURE. Press play, step into the Delorean, and be ready to hit warp speed – where we’re going, we don’t need roads.

This mix is just a bunch of music from the future. Future Bass, Future Trap, Future R&B, Future Jazz, Future Disco, Future Country, etc. I’ve just been enjoying different styles of production from all types of producers. This music doesn’t really have a set genre or it blends a couple of them together. I added a couple of tracks on here from some of my homies Ikaz Boi, Krubera, Vindata, Dave Luxe and everyone better have TEA on their radar – I see big things in her FUTURE! The mix is really great to bump in your car, in your headphones, or in your bed 😉 Since it’s all about the future, I dropped some great sound bites through out the mix. Enjoy.

The fourteenth edition features Toronto’s own Eytan Tobin, one of our good homies representing Bedroomer and Rare Beef Records. We have to give it up to dude for running a musical marathon, mixing over two hours of wavy goodness. If you’re having an afterparty, this is the only mix you really need to play – trussss mi daddy.

These are basically all my favorite tracks from the past year and a bit, in all shapes, speeds, and colors… added some joints by me too.

I guess it’s kinda like a culmination of most of my previous gigs cause I dug through all those lists.

ALSO been getting preeeeeetttttttyyyy wavey this week picking out weird little things to pepper in throughout cause this mix is for your person’s ear buds that sit in their little ears.

P.S. I think I’m done my sophomore EP. I hope to tell you guys about it A$AP.

The thirteenth instalment features a special guest from the UK, who currently resides in our great city of Toronto, Krubera. The man is a stalwart producer in his own right, and he blessed us with a half-hour mix of records that include his own work and a range of other artists that he respects. The sound is a bit heavier than some our previous Spotlight Series mixes, but the vibe is still hella proper.

These are some of the heavier tunes I like to play, no feels here.
