ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: PhatCap (ITZ034)

Posted by: noble savage on 26/03/2017 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.

After a one month hiatus, the Spotlight Series returns for its thirty-fourth edition, and we are proud to feature a high-octane mix from our good homie PhatCap! We first met Cap back in 2012, when he would travel long distances from Northern Ontario to Toronto as one of THUGLI’s most dedicated fans. Back then, we all wondered who this random dude was in the green room. Tom Wrecks explained that he had journeyed to see them play, so they showed their love by hooking up VIP access. Fast forward to 2017, and the kid has emerged as one of the hottest electronic producers in the city, with a following on SoundCloud that is 30,000+ strong. His hard-hitting tracks have been supported by heavyweights like Flosstradamus, Rusko, Boi-1da, 808 Mafia, THUGLI (of course) and many more. Running into Cap is always a pleasure. Despite his growing success, he remains humble to the core and is one of the friendliest faces in any festival crowd. On his contribution to the Spotlight Series, PhatCap provides a 30 minute sneak peek into one of his live shows. Heavy bass, stuttering drums, and energy are his signature sounds, and he delivers all three on this mix. Pump this at extremely high volume and you’ll immediately remember why you miss The Hoxton. Thanks PhatCap.

Our Bedroomer homie Eytan Tobin is gearing up to release a new EP on January 13th called EMO EDITS, and the first release is an uptempo bit, featuring Edmonton producer GHIBLI, called “You’re A Positive Motivating Force”. The track flips The Isley Brothers’ classic “At Your Best (You Are Love)” into a genre-bending electronic frenzy, while still maintaining enough of the sweet syrup from the original. Stream it below and pre-order the entire project via Bandcamp.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Lum (ITZ024)

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!!! 🙂

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Yuknodis (ITZ023)

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!

PREMIERE: Eytan Tobin – WORKOUT

Posted by: noble savage on 09/10/2015 in Featured, Music

eytan tobin workoutplan

Toronto producer Eytan Tobin is always in the lab cooking up some next level shit. Today, the Bedroomer representative allows us to premiere his new track, “WORKOUT”, which, true to it’s name, will have you sweating all over the dance floor. While a Kanye West bootleg may not seem so extraordinary, Eytan manages to transform the original into an even higher octane heater, with spastic drum work, synths, and air horns (!!!), all colliding into a menagerie of sounds that just seem to work. The release is Eytan’s foray into the eclectic futuristic style that’s being pumped out by UK collective PC Music, and was inspired by tonight’s Bedroomer party featuring London producer, and PC Music’s own, Kane West and Jamie (of Kero Kero Bonito). The event also serves as the afterparty to Kero Kero Bonito’s concert at Drake Underground, so make sure you check that out as well. Information for both shows can be found after you take in the music below (free download also available via Bandcamp).

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.

Follow Iyer on: SoundCloud | Facebook | Twitter

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.
