ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: James Redi (ITZ030)

Posted by: noble savage on 12/10/2016 in Featured, Mixes, Music, Releases

sls-itz030-800x800

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.

This month, we are blessed to have a true Toronto journeyman grabbing the coveted Spotlight Series spot, and he obviously delivers the heat throughout his 45-minute mix. James Redi is a DJ that needs no introduction in our city, but we’ll try to do justice to his name regardless. No stranger to Toronto’s burgeoning DJ scene, Redi has been honing his craft for years, and has arguably the most positive demeanour in the game. Whether he’s holding it down at one of his many residencies (SOHO House, Escobar, Sneaky Dees, Underground Garage, Peacock, and Bar Fancy, to name a few), hosting his own parties, or headlining at the infamous Dudebox jams, the man does it all with a huge smile on his face. Running into Redi on the street is always a pleasure, because when you see that bearded grin, you know your day is about to become just a little bit brighter.

Redi also has a fair share of accomplishments under his belt: two Stylus Awards nominations, a second place finish at Red Bull Thre3Style Toronto, and the 2015 NOW Readers Choice “BEST TORONTO DJ” Award. He’s had the honour of playing alongside Action Bronson, Roy Woods, Skratch Bastid, Grandtheft, THUGLI, Fat Man Scoop, Mac Miller, Phonte, Starting From Scratch, Win Butler of Arcade Fire, Keith Ape, Statik Selektah, Adam Sandler, Kardinal Offishall and a lot more. The man has even earned himself well-respected contracts with TIFF, McDonalds, and Roots Canada. Time and time again, Redi has proven himself to be a pure gladiator in the Toronto DJ arena. On his contribution to the Spotlight Series, Redi goes in with an effortlessly-mixed collection of new hip-hop bangers, demonstrating why the city holds his name in such high esteem. Thank you homie – we really appreciate all that you do. Congratulations to you and Kate on the engagement – stay blessed up fam.

This mix is a blend of songs that I’m really feeling right now. Some are new, some old but collectively, it’s a pretty chill mix with good vibes and some bangers. And that new De La is fire.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: MADD3E (ITZ029)

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.

As the ITZSOWEEZEE network continues to expand, so does our reach. Over the past couple of years, we’ve built strong connections across the Atlantic with all types of artists and labels. One such label is the Frankfurt-based Nu Disco Your Disco (NDYD) Records, who have been supplying us with releases from their talented roster for several months now. Previous features have included tracks from the likes of Italian producer BVRGER and Berlin representative Mogul. Two weeks ago, NDYD also gave us the privilege of premiering the latest record by one of Italy’s best-kept-secrets, MADD3E. And now, we have the pleasure of presenting MADD3E’s contribution to our monthly Spotlight Series. This twenty-ninth edition is special, as it serves as the first of back-to-back Spotlight Series releases from NDYD Records!

MADD3E, hailing from Rome, is a producer who is steadily rising in the global ranks for the past year. He has been dropping funky future bass creations with a finesse that is unmatched. His sound has a polish that is lacking from many of his production contemporaries, and this is definitely reflected in his Spotlight Series mix. Throughout the 45-minute affair, MADD3E changes the pace from many of our previous releases, and crafts a soulful blend of music ranging from chill instrumentals to hiphop and R&B, all while maintaining a vibe that is smooth as silk. As the seasons transition from summer to autumn, this is a mix that should most definitely stay in heavy rotation for those of you who simply love to groove.

My name is MADD3E, I regularly get high off music instead of drugs. In my mind this mix could also be run as “ITZSOWEED” for it is very relaxing and gets you high too.

PREMIERE: The Jets – Crush On You (Dom Dias Remix)

Posted by: noble savage on 06/07/2016 in Featured, Music

dom dias the jets crush on you

Another month, another Dom Dias remix… After blessing us with his excellent remix of “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone, the hardest working producer in Toronto returns with a tropical remix to The Jets’ 1986 classic, “Crush On You”. The track, beginning with the sounds of a rain shower, instantly brings to mind a sweltering, humid, and sticky day like those we’ve been having in the city lately. Forty seconds in, the snarl of a tiger leads into a slowed down sample of Elizabeth Wolfgramm’s hook, layered over a hazy instrumental. The funk breakdown near the middle of the track is a reminder that even in the summer heat, there’s always time to get up and dance. Overall, it’s a fun rework of an old-time favourite, and it’s meant to be enjoyed after a few too many mojitos with your l’amour du jour. Kudos to Dom for always bringing something different and enjoyable to the table, and for allowing us to share his creations with the world.
