Future Classic: Throwback Zack “Messages From the Stars”

For this week’s show, I had the immense pleasure to introduce a guest mix from Shred One (Cherries Records/Sweater Funk), who will be at the next Voyage Funktastique monthly night (in Montreal) on Saturday August 2nd, alongside Lexis, Dr.MaD and yours truly. I often keep songs that I dig on the side, so that I […]

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 […]



Forgotten Treasure: Prince Buster “Ten Commandments” (1967)

I was hanging out with good friends Kobal, Andy Williams and Serious Black last night, we were all djing at a Montreal Nuit Blanche event and after my set, Andy and Kobal played a back to back roots & reggae set. There were...

My new babies: AIAIAI TMA-1 Headphones

Ok so i’m not one to surrender easily to “artificial” needs but when I first saw these I must admit my heart skipped a beat. I was telling myself that I as long as I had my trusty Sony’s holding up there...

Forgotten Treasure: Groove Chronicles “Stone Cold”

Straight up this is probably my favorite 2step track of all time. Yes, it does fall under the whole UK Garage family tree but it is probably one of the few tracks that describe what the whole 2step sub-genre was. Rolling bassli...

Questlove “Lost Samples BBC Radio 1 Mix”

Let’s face it, the whole doing a “samples” mix has been to death. One of the main reasons i’ve never done one of those mixes is that there are tons of people out there who are just untouchable in that sp...

Future Classic: Maya Jane Coles “Hummingbird EP” (Vinyl w/ remixes)

Whether it be with her multi-faceted forays into the realms of house music , or the dub-wise concoctions she wields under the guise of Nocturnal Sunshine, Maya Jane Coles has made an astounding mark on the UK dance scene. The r...

Forgotten Treasure: Shades of Culture “Mindstate” (1998)

So I went to the 2nd edition of the Montreal Hip Hop Awards last night and found myself feeling pretty confused about the Montreal Hip Hop scene. It seems we all have our own definition of what Hip Hop is, which is to be expect...

Future Classic: Lecrae “Long Time Coming”

I spent the first 25 years of my life as a devout Christian, and the first 17 years growing up in a household that didnʼt let me listen to anything but “praise music” (and Lorrrrrrrrd knows it wasnʼt the “exciting” ki...

Future Classic: LTJ X-Perience “Cry” (LTJ Rework)

A few weeks ago, I was on the hunt for a song I heard on a house mix, and all I had to go on was the artist name, LTJ (and not LTJ Bukem the British Drum n’ Bass artist I used to bump to in grade 9). This was some soulful dis...

Forgotten Treasure: Musiq Soulchild “Just Friends” E-Smoove Remix (2000)

One of my favorite albums of this year (don’t worry, there won’t be a list) is undoubtedly Black Radio by Robert Glasper Experiment. I remember being stuck at the halfway mark because once I heard Ah Yeah (Feat. Musiq Soulc...

Future Classic: DJ Mitsu The Beats “Beat Installments Vol 2″

Smooth like pouring custard, phat like The Biggest Loser cast, and crafted like a Renissance master. C’mon man, it’s Mitsu! Was it ever gonna be anything else? I’m not name checking any tunes here, as I’...

Forgotten Treasure: Dreamer G “I Got That Feeling” (1992)

Every now and then I get into one of these 90′s Deep House moods which happens to be all the rage right now. Like anything else, the wrong kinda deep house music can be very boring and disposable; the line between great s...
