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

Vibe Sessions 002 – Nada Deva

This mix is packed with both classic lyrical excursions and Nu-pop remixes that flow so smoothly together you can’t help but close your eyes and smile. It has those mounting builds and big drops you crave from any mix, and its versatility and effortless transitions make it a lovely listening experience. It’s damn near impossible to keep your neck and shoulders from gyrating to the silky sounds of Edmonton based Nada Deva‘s second instalment of Vibe Sessions (check out #1 here). This dynamic DJ duo of Fransesco and Jen have been making waves in the Western Canadian music scene since 2003 and are a massive part of potentially the most underrated festival of all time – Astral Harvest. They’ve played alongside all the big boys and girls out there and continue to evolve into a provincial treasure. Do check out their wonderful beats on Soundcloud or grab your tickets to either Astral or the Rise & Shine FamJam Fundraiser in Pemberton (party with a purpose :). Don’t hesitate to get up and dance!

Trails – BLU J (ft. Axel Mansoor)

You know its cool seeing artists evolve and master their craft more and more with each track they put out. A common thing for me to say whenever BLU J release a new song is “These guys just keep getter better and better!” So whenever I am about to listen to something new from the duo I am ready to hear their best.

Well they did not disappoint with “Trails”! The beginning sets the mood for something powerful to happen. Axel Mansoors’ amazing vocals pulls you along to an exploding climax that will bring a smile to your face from ear to ear. Close your eyes to get the full effect. You’ll be riding that glorious music high for the rest of the track…..which will probably make you hit repeat. Enjoy another fantastic track by BLU J!

Homegrown Artists Edmonton Sessions: Vol. III Britt’s Theme

Kusch3Music has been the avenue for how I met the majority of my closest friends. I am sure most of you can agree the same thing. I met one of the most amazing humans at Shambhala in 2012. Britt Geddie. Her energy was infectious, you could see her smile across the ranch. Britt was that person who you would instantly connect with, feeling like you had known each other for years. From dancing deep in forests of Shambhala, to the middle of the ocean on Holy Ship, Britt was always smiling, and loved music that got her booty movin!

This homegrown session is special as it is a tribute to Britt. Britt, an original High Kicks member passed away unexpectedly this past summer, leaving a massive hole in not only our friend circle, but in our scene. Kusch, an Edmonton based producer/dj and friend to High Kicks wanted to create a mix that would capture Britt in every aspect. With the help of Jules Corpuz they encapsulated the energy Britt always carried. This mix is fun, bouncy, and beautiful. Just like Britt. I can only imagine the emotions that were coming through when making this. On behalf of High Kicks & Face Licks we want to say thank you to Kusch and Jules for letting us remember Britt in the most positive way.
