2015 Round Up

Here's all my releases from the past year in one place, including solo projects and Wood'n'Soo stuff. First off, I did a remix for Cheshire's album that dropped in March on Adapted Records.
 

DJ Soo and myself jumped at the opportunity to remix up and coming Vancouver Island hip hop crew Illvis Freshly. Released independently in July.
 

We also dropped this 4 track EP of bootleg remixes we made over the summer.
 

This year's Halloween banger came in the form of a well known movie theme...
 

And last but not least, I gave away an original tune I made earlier this year.

The CHOPPING BLOCK Volume 5


It's been a while since I did one of these, honestly putting out a mix every month was a bit of a stretch on my music collection, not wanting to repeat myself or dig too far back into the old stuff. Gonna try & get back on this on a semi-regular basis, I'd say expect a mix every 3-4 months or so. This time around I've put down a lot of ultra-modern soul, hop hop and electronica influenced grooves. Please share & enjoy!

THE CHOPPING BLOCK Podcast Volume 4

I'm still buzzing from the response to last month's show, stoked as I was on the music and how it all came together I never expected it to outpace the first two shows in under a week! Apparently y'all were ready for some deep and vibey chill tunes. For the follow up I've dug into my collection of nu disco and house music to find the most headphone-friendly cuts, starting out with some of the low-tempo bits that would rarely find their way into a dance floor set. Hopefully some of my more bass-music oriented fans will give this one a chance, while it may not be your usual flavour there is plenty of good going on here and you may even find yourself busting a move or two as the tempo ramps up. I've got a big time weakness for disco house, especially of the French variety, and you'll hear a bunch of that later in the show. Anyways, enough spoilers, press play and enjoy!

THE CHOPPING BLOCK Podcast Volume 3

I've been moving pretty slowly since last week's heat wave so it seemed fitting to drop the tempo and throw down some of the lush and lazy chill tunes that have been collecting in my library. Although a lot of these jams would be right at home on a dance floor, the overall vibe here is very laid back. You could flip this on for the drive home from one of the many upcoming festivals, after a full weekend of raging bangers your ears and brain will be thankful.  And as much as I love the bangers, I feel like a lot of the innovation in electronic music is happening off of the dance floor, where the demands of lit up punters aren't nudging artists towards homogeneity.
