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.
We are really excited for this nineteeth edition as we have a guest mix from one of our closest and most cherished friends, FeelGoodSmalls. Smalls represents Toronto to the fullest and we’ve watched her steadily progress from a fly living room DJ, with her secret identity as a corporate environmental avenger, to a party rocking phenomenon, blessing stages big and small all over the country and the world. From her humble beginnings in Orangeville, Ontario, she’s become one of the city’s hottest commodities, in-demand everywhere from hipster bars to VIP nightclubs. Most recently, Smalls was crowned the Canadian champion at the MGD Soundclash, and was flown to Las Vegas to represent Canada in the World Finals. There, she was barely edged out by the competition and earned a very strong second place finish. Add to that her work as one of Nike Women’s official DJs, and you know that she is a force to be reckoned with. As her star continues to rise, we know that she’ll keep making the city proud. When we invited her to join the Spotlight Series ranks, she was more than enthused since she is one of the lucky few that attended the very first ITZSOWEEZEE party in Toronto (RIP Andy Poolhall). And we are more than happy that she accepted our request. On this mix, she brings an excellent blend of genres, combining the sounds of R&B, reggae, gidi (Nigerian/Naija beats), moombahton, and more into a fun and energetic mix that is perfect for keeping you warm as the nights slowly get colder and colder. Thank you for the good vibrations FeelGoodSmalls (aka Sleepy Cat Mom) – we got you homie!
Whenever I make a mix I have two goals- to move you and to make you feel good. I always love having the opportunity to make a mix that is all about what I am listening to – this mix is exactly that. Having just been surrounded by DJs from across the world, I have incorporated many different styles of music into this mix and I feel they fit well together. It is a mix of reggae, moombahton, gidi and twerk — so get your dance on and in the words of FeelGoodSmalls: just drop it down low.
