Grandtheft - Bouge De La Mixtape

This week, I moved to Toronto after living in Montréal for 14 amazing years. As most know, Mount Real is an super fun city that is now, more than ever, exporting such amazing music to the world. While I am excited for the inspiration that this change will bring to my music and life, Montréal will always be in my soul and I am proud to have built my career there. Bouge De La is a mix I put together of a lot of my favourite artists/bands in Montréal.

Lana Del Rey - Video Games (Grandtheft Remix)

I had to do it. Love the song and been wanting to play it in my sets... but was not crazy about any of the remixes or bootlegs of it to date. Enjoy:

Brand Spanking New II


This party is going to be REALLY GOOD. This is the 2nd installment of our BRAND SPANKING NEW monthly. Last month we brought DJ CRAZE and the party was amazing. Classic tunes perfectly mixed for an amazing crowd. Our guest this time is going to be a REALLY GOOD treat. He's ventured away from the hip hop scene in recent years and it took a little bit of coaxing from our part but he is absolutely going to murder this party. Seriously one of the most talented DJs in the game, this one will be fresh as F*ck!

This one is for the heads. Donkeys need not apply.

Let's take a trip down memory lane....

This is a double mix CD that I made in 2003 for Timebomb Trading. It features 4 hrs of classic hip hop tracks from the early 90's. All vinyl (no mp3's), tons of scratching and trick mixing and all that good stuff. Some of you might have the OG 2cd package when it first came out - lucky you, i don't even have my own copy anymore... Big up to Gman & Rizk and Timebomb for putting this out. It's only right that I release this again, and now officially on my soundcloud page so go get 'em, they're up for grabs.

PS ~ yes, there was volume 2 that pretty much had everything from 2pac to De la Soul, Hieroglyphics, Dr Dre, DJ Quik and some more G funk artists, etc. I was about 70% done when my Roland VS-880 (8-track recorder) crashed and lost everything. It never saw the light of the day and I just never had the chance to start all over again. So devastating... Anyways, enjoy...

New Audience Remix - Kutcorners & Curtis Santiago

Eh! Team super homies Kutcorners & Curtis Santiago released a 7 inch of their awesome 80's RNB inspired single "Diamond" a few months back (you can get it here ) and now the full digital version with remixes is available online everywhere from the fine folks at 11 Inch Records.

Audience (Dj Illo's song writing duo) was fortunate enough to be asked to make a remix alongside some other incredible producers - Waajeed (Platinum Pied Pipers, Bling 47), J Boogie (Dubtronic Science) and others. Im really happy with how the Audience remix came out, a little dancefloor disco jam with lots of change-ups and textures.

Grandtheft - Gangsta Muzik / Splash

Grandtheft drops two banging bootlegs on Dj Ayres' Label T&A records. "Gangsta Muzik reworks The Diplomts' "Dipset Anthem" in a uk funky/b-more-inspired framework with big kicks, marching drums, a wobbly bassline, and chopped up vocals creating a strictly-for-the-club heater. "Splash" is a house remix of Ludacris' "Splash Waterfalls," with smoothly bumping drums, funky chops, and the best parts of the original left intact. Definitely useful stuff to have in your crates if you're a working dj!


Go cop the single @ TURNTABLE LAB


Here's a free download of a Grandtheft Remix on Dj Ayres new EP entitled "I'd Fuck Me" coming out on July 19.

Eh! Team Goods Edits Pack Volume 1.0 on Turntable Lab

The Eh! Team DJS - Pump, Hedspin, Illo & Drastik - have made a name for themselves in "The Truth North" as DJs who own deep crates, but can also cold rock a party. This release of recent remixes and edits shows their affinity for both, while keeping the overall feel of the EP funky and soulful. More "cut and paste" style then full on production, these edits are fun and simple, and are clearly designed for the dancefloor. Tasteful remakes of classics from The Jackson 5, Sly Stone, Michael Wycoff and Chuck Brown will certainly be a favorite amongst most at first listen, but hip-hop remakes from Big Boi and Erick Sermon can hold their own as well. Sit back, crack a Labatts, and watch the party start to take off!

Vancouver hip hop community fundraises to help 'Father of Hip Hop'... Kool!

Vancouver, B.C. -When Jheric Hizon, a member of the local Bboy crew Now or Never found out that New York's DJ Kool Herc was hospitalized and in need of some financial assistance to pay his medical bills, he immediately contacted some fellow hip-hop heads to host a fundraiser.

The Big Payback fundraiser (named after a classic track by EPMD, a duo also considered among the pioneers of hip hop) will be held at W2 Storyeum, 151 W. Cordova St, in Vancouver, B.C., on April 10, 2011.This will be an all-ages event from 2-7 p.m. that will feature all the elements of hip hop: Bboying/Bgirling, MCing, DJing and graf writing. A $10 minimum donation will be collected at the door, with all proceeds set to be donated to the Kool Herc Fund. More info on the fund can be found at

Thankfully, Kool Herc is out of the hospital. However, Hizon says “the Vancouver hip hop community would still like to pay tribute to Kool Herc and the other hip-hop pioneers that paved the way for what we do today.” And although The Big Payback was inspired by Kool Herc's unfortunate situation, organizers say should the need to raise funds for another pioneer occur again, this might not be the last you see of The Big Payback! That's how much the local community recognizes how indebted they are to their East Coast forebears.

If you are interested in volunteering, donating, becoming a sponsor and/or would like more information, possibly to conduct an interview, please visit or contact one of the media contacts below.

Dudes & dudettes, we are back once again, and as always, we are super stoked to bring you another night where we get to jam hard to our favorite party in town with our favorite peoples. It's been a crazy year so far. Lately, we've been busy doing the damn thing from constantly being on the road touring to spending many hours in the studio making the perfect tune (Stars & Muscles EP. coming soon), so there are lots of exciting things to get aroused about, and of course you're all part of it.

In the meantime, Let's celebrate episode 10. Stars & Muscles jammy jam is a fun party, you better ask somebody! We deliver nothing but the goods right where it counts and by that we mean the real schitt, no gimmicks - strictly gems from boogie-funk, disco, house and all the classics, new & old. We don't have to explain this all the time, just come, bring your hormones & a good crew and come dance with a cutie or two. Fuck a TigerBlood, we got that Williams Blood.

Come before 11pm or a meet and greet with our pal, The Joker. Can't wait to see you again. Let's Get Gooey! B.Y.O.S.**
