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.

This is the latest EP from Austrian producer Mo Vibez. “Dreamers” features five tracks of Mo’s unique style of production. I believe this is his fifth or sixth release but his best one by far. Enjoy the sounds.
The homie Garrett Welldone has been spending some time down in Brazil and the man has been putting in work. He just released a six track EP titled “Massage Parlour Music” on Rio based label Tudubom Records.
Our French/Moroccan brother Ikaz Boi took to SoundCloud this week to release two new freebies. The first is a melodic, piano-laden remix to “Love” by Felix Snow and Lil Uzi Vert, and the second is a darker, bass-heavy original banger called “Want Her”. Both are worth checking out and you’d be foolish not to jump on the free downloads while you can.
