Freshly Chilled Vol 2- JayFresh

I am so stoked to be writing about the legend himself, JayFresh! Not only is he a wicked DJ, he is also a good friend of mine and a genuinely awesome dude!

For the past 15 years JayFresh has been rocking the party scene in Alberta. From House and Hip Hop to Future Bass, Drum and Bass and Breaks, this guy can play anything and everything to get your booty moving. He has opened for some of the biggest names in the scene and has played at some of Canada’s most sought after music festivals.

Born and raised in Grande Prairie, JayFresh has taken the lead in creating an amazing electronic music scene there. Being the owner and founder of Freshly Squeezed Entertainment, he has brought in acts from around the world to the ears of electronic music lovers of the north.

Recently he has come out with volume two of his chill mix series that is super satisfying to the ears and oh so fresh. From the sexy female vocals and smooth house beats to the silky subtle transitions and superb track selection this mix is not one to be missed! The blend of Future Funk, House, R&B, and chillin’ Hip Hop beats has something for everyone. Whether your relaxing at home, on a road trip or just in need of some tasty fresh beats press play and get ready to be served the most delicious sounds.

Much Love

Africa Ni Leo (Esa Extended Mix) – Bantu Clan

Capture

Ugandan hip-hop trio Bantu Clan founded in 2013 after members partook in a hip-hop bootcamp organized under the Youth & Hip Hip project of Bayimba – a Ugandan organization focusing on uplifting arts and culture in Uganda. This song explodes with character, music like this is a rare find for me.

U Say – Akronym

Screen Shot 2018-01-17 at 2.18.01 PM

Akronym is a local rapper in Fernie, the beautiful mountain town nestled in the east kootenays – originally, however, from the people filled streets of the UK. The underlain track in this video is “I’m sorry (feat. shiloh)” by swell, which was released through majestic casual records (swoon worthy – as always is with that label). The combination of Akronyms twist on an already dope track levels this up to a must have for the next Lovesauce compilation. I hope you enjoy it as much I do.

As always, give this gent a follow on Soundcloud: Akronym – to stay up to date and while your at it feel free to connect with Majestic Casual to satiate your thirst for sexy songs.

Shadowbox Tour 2017- Beats Antique

Ladies and gentleman I have for you a unique, groovy, soulful pre made playlist for your listening pleasures. Beats Antique have created this collection of tracks they have collaborated with others on and music they have enjoyed over this past 2017 year. It is like no other playlist I have listened to. Zoe Jakes, David Satori, and Sidecar Tommy, this Oakland based group have made a genre of their own, forging a curious alliance between middle eastern traditions and potent west coast circus, underground hip hop, breakfast brass band, down tempo, glitch and dubstep.

If you are lucky enough to live in a city that this tour is coming to, first of all get your tickets, and second listen to this playlist as many times as you please to get amped up for the wicked soul filling experience you are about to be a part of. The first time I had the pleasure of being a part of a Beats Antique show I walked away feeling re charged and warm inside, exploding with all good vibes and so much love.

My favourite track off this playlist is Beats Antique- Let It All Go (feat. Preservation Hall Jazz Band). It’s crunchy, classy, and catchy with that swingy jazz vibe that is right up my alley.  Take a listen to this 31 tremendous track selection and choose your favourite!

Cat’n Around Mix- DLIGHT

DLIGHT -and what a delight this dude is. I’m sure if you are in the festival scene you have been alarmed by Dalen’s snake or at least noticed the sexy cat loving power couple that make up Dayla. From the booming metropolis of Grande Prairie and although quite new to the DJ world, DLIGHT is no new face in the electronic music scene. Thanks to JayFresh, the music scene in Grande Prairie is very impressive and with mixes like DLIGHT has just dropped it’s about to get that much better.

“I thoroughly enjoy digging through the endless spaces of life to discover music, and then mixing these nifty tunes for the great people to hear.” -DLIGHT

This mix is a total reflection of those words. Filled with non stop top notch tracks, from Golden Era Hip Hop to funky feel good classics, its got all the right vibes. If your’e looking for a fresh new face to follow, it’s your lucky day! Give this salt of the earth a taste and satisfy those musical cravings.

Much Love
