On February 2nd, ITZSOWEEZEE’s own beat sampras and ΛV connected to play a stellar 1.5h b2b set for the 24h pop-up launch of Istolethesoul FM, Toronto’s newest online radio community founded by Jayemkayem and Paul Chin. The vibes in the studio were amazing, and we’d like to thank Jo and Paul for having us be a part of such a wonderful experience. We’re stoked to be a part of the movement and are looking forward to the next edition of the pop-up.
All of the mixes from the 24h launch have now been uploaded to Mixcloud, and you can listen to the fiery ITZSOWEEZEE set in the player below.
Our homegirl JAYEMKAYEM (aka Jo) has connected with Paul Chin to launch a brand new Toronto-based radio platform called Istolethesoul FM. Their aim is to provide artists in the city a new medium on which to broadcast their unique sounds to the rest of the world. Jo and Paul have been hard at work preparing the launch of their new station, working with sponsors like MOOG Audio, 876 Studio, Steam Whistle Brewing, and Red Bull to put together an extraordinary 24 hour launch event. That’s right, today marks the beginning of the official Istolethesoul FM 24 Hour Radio Pop-Up. Starting at 12:00pm EST, listeners can tune in online for an entire 24 hours worth of live mixing from a line-up of Toronto’s dopest DJs and producers.
ITZSOWEEZEE is extremely proud to take part in today’s launch, and our own ΛV and beat sampras will be on air, live, with a very special b2b set from 8:30pm to 10:00pm EST. Tune in at www.istolethesoul.com and be sure to follow @istolethesoulfm on Instagram to stay up-to-date with all of today’s sets and future events.
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.
