Last night I had a date with the radio but was also enjoying a Christmas Feast of regal proportions so I pre-recorded this mix to play on air. Like a kid in a candy store, I put together this mix with very little thought and just grabbed whatever I could find that was shiny and new! Enjoy!

Apologies for the delay in getting this one posted up. The recent drama surrounding CKLN has been all-consuming....also the quality is poor on this one - sorry the gear at the station is really old and this time around opted not to work properly. Hopefully, next month's show will turn out better!

img00496-20110130-0332.jpg


Thanks to Splattermonkey for taking this photo in front of the parking garage! I gapped on it in the studio…

Local Bass-maker, Terror Tone, was on the show this month and he ripped it up proper!

He took the first hour and tore through a great selection of tunes; we even got to hear a couple of his forthcoming productions!

In case you didn’t know, now ya do:

“Terror Tone aka Luke D is a producer based out of Toronto, Canada, his various remixes and original productions have received critical acclaim, making several recommended lists on such retailers such as Juno Download (5 times), Mixmag Online and others. Luke’s productions cross genres frequently, he has made everything from Dubstep, Electro, Uk Funky to Breakbeats… Sitting at the computer for hours with his essentials: Cubase, multiple synths, and loads of coffee – Terror Tone churns out unparalleled original beats at a pace that would intimidate most. From his productions, it’s clear that he doesn’t hold back – but instead indulges in every parameter available. His dedication to music is unrivaled: a true slave to his passion.”

Unfortunately, this might be my last ever In My Room. On Friday, Jan.28th the CRTC issued a ruling to revoke CKLN’s broadcasting licence. This came as a surprise to many here at the station and although we are working on an appeal, we have been ordered to cease broadcasting on Feb.12, 2011.

So, best case scenario: we’re on hiatus for a little bit. Worst case: that’s it.

In the meantime,

If you care about independent community radio in Toronto and want to help us stay on the air, please take a moment to sign our online petition: CKLN must remain on the airwaves! Petition

This petition may make the CRTC reconsider their decision.

However, we can’t put all of our faith in this effort alone. We have also started a letter writing campaign to let solicit support from our MPs. Federal NDP Leader Jack Layton has already offered his support!

Last month I was very happy to have Mr. Tunes on the program. He's the real deal: DJ, Producer, and Technician. His passion for music is obvious and infectious but in case you've never heard of the man....

Mr. Tunes (Elliott Fienberg) plays a heady blend of house, world fusion, and a bit of dubstep. He's released music on labels such as Crammed Disc, DNH Records, and his own Auditory Music. This year, Tunes has been busy working on the El Niño project, which is a combination of podcasts and a monthly event at Rasputin Vodka Bar.

A couple of weeks back I was lucky to have Rich Hope, of the Bounce crew, as the featured guest on In My Room. Rich Hope has been DJing for over a decade now, spinning deep and dubby house music in Toronto. Over the years Rich has performed alongside international acts like JT Donaldson, Sonny Fodera, Pezzner, Fred Everything, and LawnChair Generals to name a few.

We took a little break in the middle to do an interview and unfortunately the levels were a bit off so I apologize for the muddiness. Otherwise, it's gold.

Preamble + In My Room Oct.5, 2011

After a few months on hiatus In My Room is back online!

As you’ve undoubtedly heard, CKLN’s broadcasting license was revoked by the CRTC back in January 2011 and although we were granted a stay for a few months, we ceased broadcasting on 88.1 FM – after almost 30 years – in April and left the Ryerson campus.

This past summer, CKLN was fortunate to partner with Regent Park Focus who opened their doors to provide a space for CKLN to continue to offer our diverse and challenging programming online as internet radio station. Along with the change in venue and broadcasting status, was a change in the programming schedule. Lucky me, In My Room will now be a WEEKLY online show broadcasting live online at CKLN 88.1FM | News on Wednesday nights from 10pm-12am!

As before, I’m continuing to curate In My Room as a 2 hour spot showcasing an eclectic array of “dance” music with a focus on the underground sound. In the coming weeks expect interviews and guest sets by local djs and producers, artist spotlights, label profiles and I’m excited to reach out and work with our new programmers and community partners.

If you’d like to submit a set /track, want to perform, or have something to say, let me know! After all, community radio works best when it works with the community.

Tune in Wednesday nights on CKLN 88.1FM | News from 10pm-12am for a live, dj set by yours truly.

Thanks for your continued support for independent, community radio.

This month on the show I’m going to be sorting and sifting through my all of my dark, creepy, aggro, Horrorshow, weird, and odd-ball dance music in order to create a shortlist of tracks for my next volume of Technoir. It’s hard for me to believe it’s been almost 2 years since the first volume (tempus fugit!) and I think I’m long over due for a second instalment!

Unlike the previous volume, you’re invited to participate in the creative process of putting together a studio dj mix. I want to hear from you. Love/Hate a track? Let me know via the comments or email over the next few weeks and I’ll make sure it gets into, or stays out of, Technoir Vol.2.

This episode of In My Room is a real grab bag of genres: Tech-House, Electro-House, Techno, Breaks/Electro

I took a break from the standard, continuous dj mix, format last week and for the first hour I played complete songs and talked a bit about them in between. I enjoyed playing some of my collection of vintage, experimental, darkwave, and industrial music before finishing off the set with a short dj mix.

As we draw nearer to Halloween, I'm whittling down my "virtual crate" to shape my Technoir Vol.2 dj set recording and I'm looking for your input to help me get there...what do you think of this week's tunes?

Apologies for the delay getting this up on the site. I've been out sick for nearly a week...ugh.

Last week I continued the Technoir Vol. 2 sorting process and started things off with a nice dollop of retro cheese before moving into darker territory.

I was a dj "possessed" and I think I covered a lot of musical ground on this mix. I've got one more "sorting" show planned before I go away into the studio to put together Technoir Vol.2 and I'm looking for your input!

Let me know what you'd like to hear, or not hear, in Vol.2 and I'll work my damnedest to make it happen.

For the final Technoir Vol.2 “sorting session” I started off with some moody, vocal tracks before moving into the tech-ier side of things, and closed, on a whim, with a ripping techno mashup of No More’s “Suicide Commando” from 1981. After a month of jocking the darker side of electronic music on the show and soliciting your feedback, I’m ready to hit the studio. In case you missed the live broadcast, take a listen to the set below and let me know what tracks should be in or out of the mix. I’m hoping to have the final product by the end of November at the latest.

Back in September DJ Lee MacDonald stopped by the station to drop a funky, bouncy, bumpin’ house set. Some real gems in there. About an hour, or so, in he took a break and we chatted for a bit. Then, I hopped on the decks and went off in a completely different direction: classic electro and tough electro-breaks with some dark vocal tracks….a bit of dissonance, but hey, it was the week before my birthday and I felt like being a robot.

Earlier this month local party-rocker Duzi was on the show and offered up a lesson in the “new-ish” Tropical genre of electronic dance music – think bass-heavy and slightly off-kilter rhythms punctuated by insistent snare drums and aggro synths. His first set was a mix of Tropical along with some Bass and Dubstep-influenced tracks and then we took a break for a short interview before he carried on with a mix of big room Electro-House, Fidget, and Bass sounds.

As a testament to his talent, drive, and his ability to mix multiple genres of music, Duzi still has a monthly residency in Regina - even while living here in Toronto - and he has performed alongside the likes of: Skratch Bastid, Team Canada, Huggs, LA Riots, Mat the Alien, and many others.

This week’s show was a hodge-podge grab-bag affair. I went into it with a couple of “bookends” in mind: the delightfully campy Senor Coconut cover of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” and Scissor Sisters’ “Electrobix.”

What do you think of the journey between them?

Sounds like: Quirky, Electro-House, Fidget, Bass, & Filtered House.

westsidewaxpic.jpg


I met WestsideWax a few years back when I was living near Bloor-Lansdowne in Toronto. We were both active posters on Tribe.ca and started bumping into each other at techno jams in the west end. In 2008, WestsideWax started up a part-time dj school and co-ordinated his launch with ComeUnity‘s graffiti activism event that spanned the alleyways and sideroads from Dundas West subway station to Jane. The majority of the graffiti you see out the window while you’re riding the subway between those two stops was put up over that late summer festival weekend in 2008….

img_0122.jpg


img_0125.jpg


But I digress, he invited me to perform and showcase Serato (which was relatively new at the time) to his new students and prospective students. Afterwards we chilled at his place and I was blown away by the depth of the dude’s crates of techno and his commitment to the art of all vinyl djing.

img_0131.jpg


A true “head,” WestsideWax has been djing for nearly 30 years and his dedication to the art of djing and the spirit of rave are an inspiring and welcome relief from today’s constant distracted barrage of disposable novelty and “cookie-cutter” music.

His first set is a trip down memory lane with Industrial, Post-Punk, Rave, Classic Chicago House and Techno. After our interview, a Techno set to close things out.

Yo! Welcome to 2012! Some house-keeping from last year to take care of….

chicletgramaphone.jpg


Chiclet, an old friend of the show, stopped by the studio for the last show of 2011 to deliver a special set of all her favorite sounds. Recently featured in The Grid, Chiclet’s energy and enthusiasm behind the decks is infectious and it’s no doubt why she’s one of the most consistently “in-demand” DJs in Toronto. Weaving together Filtered Disco House, Nu-Disco, Electro-House, Tech-House, Bass, Baile Funk & B-more these 2 sets are a great snapshot of the fun, upbeat and dancefloor destroying sounds Chiclet is known for. Sorry, no trance this time…but maybe, just maybe, I can convince her to put together an exclusive set for In My Room?

Last week Jack Tripper aka Dylan T aka Dyjomat aka Bad Boy Dill (ha!) joined me in the studio for the first show of 2012. His was the first to tweet to the new Twitter account and in doing so earned himself top seeding on In My Room. A self-confessed vinyl junkie, Jack Tripper’s influences and tastes span the history of “dance” from disco to present day. He’s been djing for a number of years and his passion for both his craft and the music is evident. It seemed like he had a little story to go along with each record he pulled out and over the course of the 2 hours, between his knowledge and the collective wisdom of discogs.com, I felt like I was getting an education in electronic music!

Armed with a bag of records, Jack Tripper laid down a wonderfully eclectic set of electronic music. In fact, he was on such a roll that we were a bit pressed for time when we had to squeeze in a little Q+A at the end of the set! Regardless, the man’s taste in music is terrific and his crates run deep; I was shocked by how few of these tracks I’d heard before! Some standouts for me are highlighted in bold below but the whole set is a great sampling of Classic House, Detroit Techno, Chicago House, Garage, Tech-House, Deep House, Nu-Disco, Electro and Rarities.You won’t be disappointed…

sage-music-weapon.jpg


A multi-instrumentalist, Sage brings his extensive musical background together as a DJ. I was surprised to learn that Sage is a classically trained flautist and has dabbled in a wide variety of musical forms from Jazz, to Rock, to Funk, even Punk! His passion for music eventually led him to the sample driven sounds of House music in Montreal over a decade ago while attending university. If you’re a house-head here in Toronto, chances are you ran into Sage and co. at the summer sun-drenched Lazydaze parties or caught him live at one-off events around the city.

He’s currently working on a number of projects including a new night and a Live PA project tentatively entitled “Sword,” which will blend the House and Punk sound and aesthetic. 2012 promises to be a big year for Sage and I can’t wait to see what’s in store!

Fans of the deeper sound of house will be especially excited for this week’s installment of In My Room. There’s some nice finds in this set, I’ve bolded them below. Sounds like: Deep, Tech, Jackin’, Acid, and Vocal House

Hey all!

I’m going through the sorting process again in preparation for my upcoming demo for Pride Toronto in hopes that they pick me again to perform at one of the stages. There was no real rhyme nor reason to this mix aside from starting off around 112 bpm and working up to a heavy froth. You know, I kinda wish I had a little more time to play with the last one by DJ Dero – I forgot how much that one kicks…maybe it’ll make the cut? Anyway, I need to have this mix done before the end of the month so you can expect another set like this next time around on Wednesday.

I appeal to your collective sense of rhythm and good taste to weigh in on the tunes contained herein. Sounds like: Nu-Disco, Tech-House, House, Acid House, Vintage, Electro-House, Filtered Disco House!

Local DJ and promoter Boots Boogie stopped by the station last week and, true to form, delivered a set chock-a-block with Disco, Nu-Disco, Deep House, Tech-House, and some new Bootlegs. A fixture in Toronto’s underground dance scene, Boots’ love for music extends beyond any one particular genre and his passion is infectious. Working with production partner, Max the Fax and friends at the Deep North Blog, Boots has been crafting disco-tinged bootlegs and edits aimed squarely at the dancefloor. While still new to the production game, his tracks are quirky, a bit cheeky, and border on the warehouse vibe. No slouch, the man mixes his way through a ton of tracks and showcased some of the great work being put out by other up-and-coming Toronto producers (highlighted in bold for y’all). It was a great show and afterwards we chat a bit about his musical tastes, the rise of Nu-Disco, who’s hot in Toronto and Canada right now, and list off his upcoming events. This one is not to be missed.

jiggy.jpg

Jiggy Tarsands is the latest alias of the mercurial Spencer Dee, a longtime veteran DJ in Toronto’s underground electronic music scene. Although his sound has evolved over the years, his passion for innovative and cutting-edge dance music has been a constant. With a keen ear and deep crates, Spencer has a knack for putting together compelling mixes that take the dancefloor on a journey into sound. As he says in the interview: “It’s not deep unless you have to work for it.”

We first met a few years back at a gig at the old Chelsea Lounge on Dundas. I recall enjoying his eclectic set and I distinctly remember running over to the booth a couple of times to peer over his shoulder and check out the Traktor display to see what was on deck. Since then I’ve caught him performing at the occasional Bounce party, some other one-off around town or at the occasional loft/warehouse jam and he’s always delivered the goods.

This latest incarnation is no exception. The sound of Jiggy Tarsands is deep, acid, warehouse, woozy, laidback nu-disco that’s slightly off-kilter.

mikeconradiedit.jpg


Mike Conradi is a legend-in-the-making in Toronto's electronic music scene. The experienced DJ has been moving crowds for over a decade and has recently been bitten by the "production" bug. If you've been clubbing in Southern Ontario during the past few years you've no doubt danced to the rhythms of Mike Conradi at places like Nocturne, 24 Lounge, After 8 Lounge, Festivals like WEMF, or the old mainstays like Circa, The Docks and System Soundbar just to name a few....

Citing Deko-ze as an inspirational force, "from his mixing to his track selection & programming [Deko-ze] is in a league of his own," Conradi's no slouch behind the decks either.

Using 3 CDJs, Mike's signature sound is best summed up as a Techno-driven hybrid of Electro, House, and Funk overlaid with samples and effects. More to the point, the man has the skills to pay the bills.

As a producer, Mike has a number of remixes already under his belt and has releases forthcoming on labels such as Champion Beats, Fine Grind Audio, Don't Look Productions among others. You may also have caught Mike performing as one half of the DJ/Production duo known as Rex Manning with Christian Poulsen of HUGSNOTDRUGS.

I was fortunate to have Toronto area DJ/Producer Mike Conradi agree to submit an exclusive mix for In My Room last week. Quite frankly, the mix couldn't have come at a better time as I was hit with a nasty cold-flu thing and could barely even get my ass to the studio to load it up and press play.

If you like what you hear below, you can catch the man live here:

Friday April 13th at Nocturne in Toronto

skank-honto-grassy.jpg


First off, apologies for the delay getting Skank Honto’s dj mix posted up but for those of you who weren’t able to tune in and listen live; I think you’ll find that it was worth the wait. A problem with some mixer levels and a gap in the recording necessitated an overdub and re-recording in a section or 2 but, rest assured, the tracklist and the integrity of the mix remain intact and the mix sounds great!

Skank Honto has been a fixture in the Southern Ontario breaks scene over the past decade or so. Originally from London, ON, he moved to Toronto a few years back and brought the funk with him.

Known for his love of funky break beats, Skank Honto has recently become a booster for the emerging sounds of Nu-Funk and Ghetto-funk coming from Canada’s west coast. He credits the Make it Funky crew for helping to spread this new sound exemplified by acts like A.Skillz, Stickybuds, DJ Czech, the Funk Hunters, DJs Wood & Soo who are working to re-invent the sound of funky breaks. He also points to local talent like Big League Chu, and Marty McFly as being critical to the development of his sound as a dj.

A long-time collector of vinyl, Jay recently made the jump to Serato to overcome the lack of access to new records and he enjoys the versatility afforded to him through the use of the Novation Dicer as a MIDI interface. However, you can still hear the gems from his vinyl collection at the monthly Funkin’ it up! event he co-hosts with Toronto’s infamous vinyl junkie, DJ Splattermonkey, at No One Writes to the Colonel.

In the first hour and a bit, Skank Honto takes us on a journey through party breaks, funky breaks, some bangers and finally some dubstep-inspired sounds before we break (ha!) for an interview. Afterwards he rounds out the playlist with some choice cuts of the slower tempo’d Nu-Funk, Ghettofunk, and bootlegs.

dougieboom.jpg


A couple of weeks back, local party-rocker and genre-blurring DJ Dougie Boom visited the Regent Park Focus studios to appear on In My Room. Mr. Boom is a well-known fixture in Toronto’s underground electronic music scene and has worked with international legends and locals alike. He works quite a bit with Toronto-based promotion company Underdog but, as a testament to his versatility as a DJ, he has hosted and performed at a number of events with music ranging from psychedelic rock, to hip-hop, to metal, Italo and Boogie, to Booty House and beyond.

After about a year of wrangling our schedules, we were finally able to connect and during our preliminary discussions we talked about our mutual love of vintage Italo Disco, Boogie, and Electro-funk. The initial concept for the show was for us to have a back2back jam session for the first hour wherein we could showcase some choice cuts from the late 70s and 80s but, as is so often the case in the DJ world, a technical issue involving Serato prevented us from doing so and Dougie stepped up and went solo.

During the first hour, Dougie Boom took us on a rapid-fire sampling of his collection of Italo and Boogie. Fans of the sound will notice hits by Patrick Cowley, Mr. Flagio, Trophy, Jago, and BWH among a few rare gems.

Then we paused for an interview and discussed: his love of vinyl, what's going on with slower bpms in dance, the state of the “scene” in Toronto and future gigs.

The second set is packed new music from local and Canadian producers such as Nautilus, Jokers of the Scene, John Roman, & Kevin McPhee and ranges from Deep and Tech-House, Electro-Funk, to Techno, to stripped-down Bass-heavy broken beat.
