The yearly music menagerie of South by Southwest comes to a close this weekend and Toronto producer beat sampras (Bedroomer/ITZSOWEEZEE) decided to pay homage to some of his favourite artists that have been performing in Austin, Texas throughout the week with his SXSW 2016 Mix. The result is an almost hour-long, superbly mixed, collection of some great contemporary R&B and hiphop records that you’ll be sure to enjoy while you cool out as the warm Spring weather takes over. Artists featured on the mix include Kehlani, Tory Lanez, Little Simz, Kodak Black, Rihanna, Majid Jordan, Stormzy, Anderson .Paak, Jazz Cartier, Jeremih, madeintyo, Two-9, Mick Jenkins, and a LOT more, including a sexy exclusive from sampras himself. Just trust us when we tell you that this mix is fire and that you need it in your life.
Vancouver production duo Live Evil, consisting of the homies Kutcorners and Marvel, release a dope new remix EP called Future Evil. True to its name, the project consists of four stellar remixes to tracks by everyone’s favourite trap-lord-du-jour, Future. Stream it below and get the free download here.
If you follow ITZSOWEEZEE, you should be aware that we are huge supporters of our Toronto fam beat sampras, routinely featuring his original tracks, remixes, and edits. Since the summer, he has increased his output significantly, dropping remix after remix on SoundCloud, all of which we’ve proudly shared on our website. He’s also been in the studio cooking up some dope material with the Bedroomer clique: a roster that includes some incredibly talented producers like Eytan Tobin, Hudson Alexander, Lum, and Michael Imperial. His track “Cosmic Ocean”, produced in collaboration with Eytan, for Cleveland emcee Atari Jones, remains one of the hottest hidden gems of the year. And for all the heat that he’s shared publicly, visiting his home studio you quickly find out that he’s sitting on an entire archive of unreleased fire. On The Remixes, sampras has completely re-mastered 11 of his recent remixes, giving them a feel that can only be described as lush. As a bonus, he’s also thrown in an exclusive download of a brand new remix to “Temple” by rising Toronto band WILDE. Stream all of the tracks below and get the free download via Bandcamp. We want to congratulate the homie on the release of this project, and look forward to hearing the debut EP that he has in the works. Stay tuned.
