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.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Live Evil (ITZ035)

Posted by: noble savage on 09/05/2017 in Featured, 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.

Ever since we began the Spotlight Series, it’s been a blessing to bring you all mixes from some of the most talented DJs and producers from across the globe. The thirty-fifth release in the series is no different, as we present a polished 40-minute product from Vancouver production duo, Live Evil. Live Evil, formerly known as The Freshest Live Set, consists of our incredible homies DJ Marvel and Kutcorners, who joined forces in 2011 to put the West Coast music scene in a stranglehold. While both Marvel and Kutcorners have racked up a number of individual accolades, their collaborative efforts have earned them recognition from well-established outlets such as BBC Radio 1, Shade 45, Pitchfork, Hypetrak, Okayplayer, and many more. With strong international nightclub experience under their belts, the duo have grabbed the game by its horns with their live remixing abilities, combining turntablism with synths and drum pads to deliver unique performances that drive party-goers insane. These skills are showcased in full force on their contribution to our Spotlight Series, taking the listener on a guided tour through the darker side of hiphop. This mix is what happens when two of the illest in the country decide to put on some Timbs and proceed to stomp out any DJ standing in their way.

ELMNT – 93 Tape

Posted by: noble savage on 13/03/2017 in Music

elmnt 93 tape

Been a while. Sorry about that. I know I annoyed a lot of people that generally chose to support my art. It wasn’t purposeful. I needed some time to get life in order. Nothing worse than hearing frustration in your own voice on wax. So instead, I decided to take time and build up life.

93 Tape is something I did over the past few days, just based on the vibe and all that. I haven’t put the pen down, and the art form may have been one of the only reasons I kept pushing fwd.

Thank you to Hip Hop, the whole culture, the beautiful people in it and surrounding me with positive love & energy. It made the difference between a dope day and a shit day.

Next time I release something, it won’t take years or whatever.

Thanks world.

xx.
