1234 – k?d & Medasin

18.1k hits on SoundCloud in one day! This track is fire. If you have an ear for house music, you’ll love this collab between k?d and Medasin. From the light intro to the deep drops, they cover all bases. I could stomp around and shake to this all night.

Later – busy stomping.

Mass Manipulation – REZZ 👽

The invasion I’ve been waiting for! My future wife Isabelle touches down with her newest album – ‘Mass Manipulation.’ What better way to kick off a Friday than cranking up with some (as my good pal Shaun Caron coins) dark techno alien music. It’s tough to pick a favourite out of these 8 tracks when each has such a different flow and feel, but simultaneously webbing together to create a very solid album. If you’re a REZZ fan, you’re going to love ‘Green Gusher.’ If you’re not a REZZ fan, watch out. This is my future partner we’re talking about here! We unofficially tied the knot last time she abducted me. 

That’s it for today folks. – I’m off to lay in a hammock for 2 weeks along the west coast islands. Catch you in a couple weeks!

Good Deeds & Funk the World 38- Everyman

Everyman oh Everyman, what a fucking legend. After seeing two solid sets at two different festivals from him I couldn’t help but fall in love. From his funky daytime set with QDup to his own more bass heavy hip hop set, it was nothing but eargasms for me. As indecisive as I am I couldn’t pick between a set from the Heart of Funk Canadian Tour with Fort Knox Recording artist, QDup and Everyman’s new solo album, Good Deeds… so you’re welcome, here is both!

One year after the tragic and sudden passing of Everyman’s best friend, Nicholas “Pumpkin” Alvarado, Good Deeds was created and dedicated in his honour. Everyman takes an aim at a broken political system and rallies the next generation to rise up, all while still mixing in plenty of the playful nostalgia, biting humour, deep thoughts and the unshakeable optimism that have captivated humans around the globe.

Good Deeds is a very unique and rare album. It fuses the conscious “Golden Era” hip hop Everyman was raised on with the future funk he now mixes up during his deluxe DJ sets, to create a collection of his most personal songs to date that will have you drooling from the tip to the finish to get that full eargasm I was talking about earlier 😉

So whether you’re feeling the funk or hyped on the hip hop, make sure you have a change of clothes, cause these babies will have you wet no matter what!

Diluted Brains – REZZ

What is this sound?! REZZ once again dominating my ear drums. This song just touched town today ladies and gents. HighKicks is on-top of the freshness for you. For such a small, pleasant, humble human, Isabelle Rezazadeh creates one of the darkest, heaviest sounds I’ve come across. Closing your eyes to a REZZ song is like being in a horror based video game – first, your curiosity slowly leads you up the crumbling steps into the dark corridor that is the mausoleum entrance. As you make your way down the seemingly endless path filled with cobwebs and dusty stone your heartbeat starts migrating to your throat. Now you can hear it pounding in your ears, almost a melody that persuades you into the darkness. Then, as you turn the corner, time freezes for one split second and your eyeballs nearly burst from your skull. ZOMBIES! Now whip out that shotgun and fluently, confidently, with a smirk on your face, annihilate those bastards! Oh yah, now this darkness isn’t so scary. In fact, I kinda like it here. Now, time for the next REZZ track and proceed onwards to level two of your video game!

Haha, was that too carried away for you? The answer is no, not with this tune it isn’t. Turn it up real loud and see what I mean. Enjoy

Ps. I made the game reference because Isabelle is also a nerd gamer like myself. She mentioned to the crowd when I saw her play a fairly intimate set for a couple hundred lucky folks that she came up with her track ‘Silent Hill’ whilst taking the plunge into a horror based video game herself. I know it says that on SoundCloud, but I promise I knew first 😉 I’ve attached this song as well in case you haven’t heard it.
