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 twenty-third edition of our Spotlight Series comes from a wonderful Toronto DJ, who also happens to be our good homegirl, going by the name of Yuknodis. Yuknodis spent most of 2015 expanding her reach both within the city and, more recently, across the country. Whether she’s playing private parties for members of the OVO crew, rocking out at some of Toronto’s finest nightclubs, throwing her own parties at The Libertine, or just dropping fire mixes on Soundcloud, she definitely knows how to keep crowds vibing. With a unique style of her own, Yuknodis seamlessly blends R&B, hiphop, house, future bass, drum & bass, reggae and more, like very few others in this city can. All of these qualities are what made us reach out to her to contribute her sounds to our Spotlight Series. And she doesn’t disappoint – providing a forty-five minute mix that more than proves her worth when placed alongside some of the more experienced DJs that have joined our ranks. Thank you for constantly impressing us Yuknodis, and know that we wish you continued success in all of your future musical endeavours.
This mix was inspired by familiar melodies wrapped in unfamiliar beats. I used the A side / B side concept with Mr. Rogers as an interlude to break it all up. Hope you enjoy!
