Here is another mix filled with some bad ass bassline/speed garage for all you lovers of the whomp! This d-set is smushing together the catchy tunes. Great buildups into exciting drops that will make you want to shake that booty!
My favourite tune in this is the Jake S tune a bit through called “Kernkraft Strikes Back” A lot of you will recognize the sampling in this one!
Now this is what I call DRUM AND BASS! Every once in awhile I hear a tune that makes me want to bounce around. That is exactly what I did when I first heard this tune by Andy C. A dark and crazy bass line which is just the way I love my drum and bass.

Ghost Order has teamed up with Myth and Danny Christiansen to create a beauty of a track. This is the best I have heard from Myth.

I have to be honest and say I don’t think I have ever said “what a beautiful track” to a garage track. Artful’s UK Garage remix of his own track Wasteman . The contrast of the gloomy lyrics with the uplifting sounds give this track a unique spark. I have had it on repeat since It was sent to me in an email. The most awesome thing? It is a free download on his facebook page
Carson was always one of my favorite locals because of house he always picks the tracks that make people want to move. This mix is filled with the grooviest of the deep house to the funkiest of the disco style tunes. Carson has a way to build you up even when you are just sitting in a chair. You won’t be able to stop moving while you listen to this!
C Majah’s mixes are always fun, unique and all worthy of the sunshine we are getting right now. Check out Mixing Roots 1, Reggae and hip hop tunes that will surely bring a smile to your face. I was wandering around in the sun yesterday and seriously could not stop smiling. A great DJ like C Majah knows how to pick the tunes that will make people get that happy feeling you only get when you hear them.
I think I forgot to share this which is very silly of me since I love Buddygirrl and CoMa. Both these ladies have amazing gifts. The toybox sounds in this track give it a unique element you don’t hear in others.
Control Freq Radio VS ORBITAL Ft. Lenar + Emmanuel Ferreira
I had the amazing opportunity to interview Orbital.. I joined forces with Tim of Control Freq Radio Before hand we got to see them perform live which was absolutely unreal. Getting to see Orbital in a small club in Vancouver was for sure a once in a lifetime experience. After the show we sat down and had a lovely chat with these legends! Take a listen to hear about what they think about upcoming artists, downloading music and some details on their roots!
Sonny Fodera sure knows how to pick the house music. This mix is filled , classic house sounds, sweet vocals and downright grooving sounds. Sonny mixes these classic sounds with unique tracks to keep your ears excited. It makes me realise what i miss about dancing around to house music.
This past weekend I was able to catch a fun hip hop show in Nanaimo at the Cambie! Emotionz came by with the Sound Vibe folks and it was a night of good music!! I had a chance to have a little chat with him before he went on. A lot of people will know Emotionz by his track "Skytrain" from a few years back. Anyone who has lived in Vancouver will appreciate that tune.I know I cracked up the first time I heard it. Anyways take a listen!!
Skulastic’s debut Self Titled album is exactly how I love my hip hop: funky and fresh. Fully self produced and filled with passionate lyrics. This female emcee busts out some epic rhymes and catchy beats. This sassy album has been on repeat since I first heard it. My favourite track is the funked out, jazzy “Move Slow”
Coma - Wouldn't It Be Good If It Was True (eXcess remix)
A beauty of a chillstep track! Coma’s haunting vocals reworked by eXcess! Chilled, Relaxing keys with punchy drums make this track shine for me!! I am a big sucker for Coma’s work as well as chill so this one is a shoe in to be on repeat.
