Tonight is going to be something special as ITZSOWEEZEE’s own DeMiggs and beat sampras return to The Libertine (1307 Dundas St W, Toronto) for their monthly party, Coast. When these two share the decks, it’s nothing short of a problem. Expect to get super wavy as we’re also celebrating the birthdays of ITZSOWEEZEE fam Noble Savage (@wrecknoble) and Ronstar (@ronstar_itzso) – so you’ve been warned that this is going to be one for the books. Come through and witness why our crew of DJs and tastemakers can’t be touched. No cover, no dress code, no bullshit. No guestlist either, so if you’re there then you’re there. And if you’re not, well, we’re sure you’ll be able to live vicariously through your social media feeds. See you all tonight.

PREMIERE: beat sampras – said it

Posted by: noble savage on 09/04/2016 in Featured, Music

beat sampras said it

Toronto producer beat sampras (ITZSOWEEZEE/Bedroomer) has been hard at work for the past several months, dropping a fresh mixtape called The Remixes in November, DJing at the flyest parties in the city, as well as recently releasing his SXSW 2016 Mix less than a month ago. And now, he’s gearing up to release a brand new EP in the summer. “said it” is the first offering from the EP – a smooth-as-fuck instrumental flip of Rihanna’s sexual slow jam “Yeah, I Said It”. Featuring a chopped and screwed sample, with an unsubtle addition of drums, bass, and keys, the track is perfectly suited to driving slow through the city lights or some aphroditic activities with your amour. Stream the track below and definitely grab the free download via Bandcamp.

P.S. Make sure you come out to The Libertine (1307 Dundas St W, Toronto) tonight to catch beat sampras live alongside ITZSOWEEZEE co-founder DeMiggs at Coast. You don’t want to miss this one – trust me.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Lum (ITZ024)

Posted by: noble savage on 30/03/2016 in Featured, Mixes, Music, Releases

sls itz024 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.

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!!! 🙂
– Lum

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series: Yuknodis (ITZ023)

Posted by: noble savage on 29/02/2016 in Featured, Mixes, Music, Releases

sls itz023 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.

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!
– Yuknodis
