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.
Today, we bring you the twenty-fourth edition of our Spotlight Series mixes. It’s hard to believe that a project we started on a whim two years ago would take on a life of its own, celebrating the musical styling of so many amazing DJs and producers. This month marks the beginning of Spring, so it’s only fitting that we provide a mix from a Torontonian who is known for his warm and eclectic style: Lum. Lum, affectionately dubbed “Lum Daddy” by his Bedroomer compatriots, is one of those people that you are instantly drawn towards. Not only does the man throw some of the best art and music events in the city, he is also one of the nicest guys at said parties. Always welcoming you with a smile, he exudes an energy that is constantly positive, and this also emanates into the music that he makes. His 2015 single “Kissing” (see our previous post), is a prime example, featuring feel-good production that’s brought to life by his own pop vocals. If you’ve ever seen Lum play, you know that he loves to sing freestyle verses live over his mixes, and that’s exactly the type of vibe he’s brought to his Spotlight Series offering. The half-hour mix starts off with some hiphop/R&B/ambient remixes, before diving into a set full of melodic footwork sounds, all topped off with Lum’s own trademark vocal samples. If you needed a mix to set off the pre-game season, this is definitely one to keep in heavy rotation.
This mix is a journey. Starting with rap, hitting a quick ambient break, and eventually getting to some really melodic and beautiful footwork. Sometimes I grab the mic and will sing a tune during a DJ set lol, so I did some tripped out freestyles on this one using a vocal effect pedal.
Smoke a joint and go for a walk in the new spring air with this one!!! 🙂
