Marcus Visionary – Carnival Special on Rinse FM

A lot of people asked us this summer if and when we were going to put out a Caribana Jungle Mix from Channel One figure head Marcus Visionary.  In our two year history this mix has become an annual and heavily downloaded drop for us.  Sadly due to his hectic studio and touring schedule Marcus was unable to record his Jungle mix this year, BUT, we have the next best thing:

The live archive of Marcus’s appearance on vastly influential London radio station Rinse FM, broadcast during his recent European tour. Marcus guested on label boss Shy FX‘s Digital Soundboy show on the Wednesday leading up to his appearance on the massive DSB stage at this years Notting Hill Carnival.

A full two hours of pre carnival warm up vibes showcasing Marcus’s signature Ragga Jungle and 140 bpm Sub Soca sound.  The play list is almost entirely exclusive dubplates from the likes of Benny Page, Aries, Chopstick Crew and Marcus Visionary himself.

“These are the tunes that would have been on my Carnival Mix if I had been able to record one this year.  Hope everyone enjoys it and watch for my upcoming releases on High Culture, Necessary Bass and Inner City Dance which are all played on this show” – Marcus Visionary

We know, you are welcome!

The Frandiscos – Roll Up, Pour Up, Turn’t Up

(Photo Taken by Conrad McGee-Stocks)

It’s been over a year since the brothers Francisco blessed us with a Channel One mix.   In that time The Frandiscos have continued to build their name all over the city with their effortless knack for stringing together different flavours into one cohesive party set.

This mix showcases their signature DJ style, taking the best of bass heavy music from across different tempos and seamlessly mixing it together PROPERLY. (Take note imitators)

A high energy roller coaster ride touching on Trap leaning Dubstep, Mid 90’s Jungle classics, Upfront DnB, 808 Gutter Bass, Parisian House and sleazy party time Electro.

Roll Up, Pour Up, Turn’t Up!

Tasc – Summer 2012

Yes. We know we haven’t been updating the site with new mixes with the frequency that we normally would, but hey it’s summer time. We have outside shit to do like drink beer in the street and take instagram pictures of sunsets over lakes.

Have no fear though, just like Hov the kid of a hundred nicknames aka Tasc has been holding us down for mixes for the last few summers guaranteed!  This time “Two Champagnes”  really takes us on a journey, effortlessly running through some of the finest deep dark and sexy house music around at the moment.

Knowing Tasc we can only imagine the amount of Pinot that was consumed at The Hazy Hotel while he recorded this mix.  Maybe he was upset that he didn’t get a ticket to Burning Man this year so he tried to recreate the experience musically. Regardless, this is your soundtrack for hot nights in the city, on the beach or driving up to your favorite festival this summer.

Also be on the look out for our site revamp coming real soon, and oh yeah, happy two year anniversary to us!  Cheers.  C1.

Marcus Visionary 4×4 90’s UKG mix

Ahhhh yes, spring cleaning. Living in this country a proper above and beyond the normal cleaning of your home, going threw all your stuff and purging the unnecessary after a long winter is some what of a tradition for us Canadians.

Lucky for us Marcus Visionary also subscribes to this practice, and once again, while digging through his storage locker he found another lost UK Garage mix from his days behind the decks at Flirt Sundays.

Judging by the tracks played this mix was recorded sometime around 1998. For many this was the “golden age” of UKG, before the “2-step” sound, when it was still heavily related to the 4×4 skip and swing of the style pioneered in the US by the likes of M.A.W, Todd Edwards and MK.
PUT_CHARACTERS_HERE kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjgggggggggyyytfrdrjjjjjjjj
Marcus couldn’t remember the exact tracklisting but tracks from Tuff Jam, MJ Cole, Ramsey & Fen, Grant Nelson and Dem 2 are all featured.  Summer time party music in its purest, rawest, sexiest form.  CONSTANT rotation!

Ice One – ‘Seasons’ – April 2012

Back again for another journey into the deep murky depths of the underground is one of our absolute favourite DJ’s, the mysterious Ice One. We are not going to lie, he submitted this mix months ago but then decided to our dismay that he didn’t want to put it out.  Recently he realized like we knew already, that this mix was full of timeless music and needed to be released.  So while the tracks are a few months old, they still sound fresh as mountain dew.

What we love about Ice One is that no matter what  tempo he chooses to rock, from the coldest metallic Drum n Bass to the most introspective late night house music, he ALWAYS delivers with the flyest selections from across the spectrum.  We never know what he is going to come with but its guaranteed we will be hunting him down for a track ID or two everytime he blesses us with a new mix.

Our boy is currently residing in Alberta and flying the flag firmly for Channel One out there, catch Ice One playing in and around the province spreading the gospel of low down Bass music to the uninitiated.  Stone Cold.

Tasc – Is it Spring Yet?

With a warm winter and spring right around the corner, its only right that our next mix comes from the been had Polo kid himself: DJ Tasc. A new Tasc podcast sets the mood perfectly for our journeys into late night trouble and blazes the trail forward with all things currently hot in House music.

As always with Tasc, championship DJ skills are on show. Pay close attention to the EQ’ing and the transitions, seamless…no synch button, no mixed in key, just a great ear for dope music and the pedigree of years of experience and good taste to present it to you properly.

Monsieur ‘Two Champagne’ himself speaks on it a little more nonchalantly:

“Woke up, got the coffee pot brewing and started recording. I didn’t want to get caught up worrying about the tracklisting, just good House beats, all across the board. I hope you all enjoy”

Also, make sure you check out his ‘Choke’ remix for “Damn Kids“, out now on Provoke. via Beatport.
