Mix of the Day: Seb Diamond & Kyle Kalma “Neon Podcast 11″

With only 1/3 of the summer left to go here is a mix you need to add to the “to-listen” pile, preferably on a sunny day. The mix is part of the NEON series, a collective who have been running some (most) of Montreal’s great electronic music events since 1998. Mix #11 in the series […]

Future Classic: Rollrgrrl “Repent”

I never thought I’d see the day where my friend’s mom makes it to the MIMS front page! Working hard as a hairdresser during the day, she slaves away at sluggish sizzurp-fueled beats after dark, desperately trying to overpower the harmful side-effects from old-lady perm fumes. It’s a hard-knock life, but someone’s gotta do it. […]

Forgotten Treasures: East Flatbush Project “Tried By 12″ Remixes (1998)

When I was 17, I used to hangout with a guy named Fat Steve who lived in a suburb of Montreal called Cote-St-Luc. We’d chill in his bedroom at his mom’s house and listen to rap music after school. He had the fattest cat I’d ever seen in my life, and was obsessed with Quasimoto […]

Jay Electronica – The Making of Act II

Depending on which hip-hop head you ask Jay Electronica may be the more overhyped MC or just the ultimate tease. After being considered by everyone to be the up and coming guy for the past 3-4 years the dude has yet to release ...

Future Classic: Belleruche “Backyard” (KidKanevil Remix)

I have to admit that I kind of slept on this one a little, honestly the Tru Thoughts label have been putting out so much good stuff that sometimes it’s hard to keep up! This nice little downtempo remix was released with t...

Forgotten Treasure: Oran “Juice” Jones – The Rain (1986)

Ok so I know it’s been a streak of a couple really cheesy selections of our forgotten treasures segment, but to me it’s a very fine line between awesome cheese and smelly old cheese. And as you know, well… we ...

Future Classic: Moka Only “Grab Grab Grab”

Moka Only is definitely one of Canada’s most prolific and underrated MC’s. By the time I finish this post he’s gonna probably put out another 2 records. Loving this jam. Perfect winter headphone music.

Just got a message from the founder of a new company and service called iCrates and I have to say it’s a pretty interesting tool, which does raise certain ethical questions for the seasoned record digger. As you can see f...

Forgotten Treasure: The System “You Are In My System” (1982)

XLR8R Magazine : Issue 137 ft. Ramadanman
