From Brock Boogie…

“What’s good, facebook fam!?

It’s been a hella long time since your boy, Brock Boogie dropped a mix, but I’m happy to say I finally made it happen! To put this into perspective, the last mix I released was actually distributed in record shops on cassette in the late 90′s!

This new mix, UP NORTH TRIP!, features 90′s Canadian hip-hop tracks hand-picked from my collection. I had a lot of fun pulling these records & doing this mix. Each of these tracks had heavy rotation in my walkman when I was a teenager, growing up in Toronto.

There’s no crazy post-production or multi-track mixing going on here. This mix was done the old-school way with vinyl, a sampler (for ID hits) and two turntables…all done in one-take!

I hope you dig it, because I hope to keep turning out these mixes on a monthly basis (of various genres).

Thanks for listening!

    Okay, I must be getting annoying with these comments but I am LOVING these mixes!

    I’m a huge hip-hop fan and I haven’t heard of any of these artists (except for Kaos and Masta Ace)! It’s really cool stuff, too! Are these artists all from Canada?

    As for the mix – the best I’ve heard on this site so far (so smooth and really nice scratching)!

    Thanks again!

    Dani.

    One take?  No editing?   Mixed old school on turntables?  Wow.  This is really good.  I can’t wait for next month’s mix.  Fitzy

    Saw this guy on the decks in Berlin last year. Outstanding ability to move through genres (funk, motown, hip-hop, live mashups).

    I am in Toronto for a month for work, is he DJ’n anywhere?

    This mix is great btw!

    Whoa! Thanks for the feedback, everyone!
    Salty…I’m loving the new Chosen Ones LP! I’ll definitely be getting that on a mix, asap! Great work on the production, as always!
    Fitzy…glad you liked the mix! Sorry for not getting another done. I’ve been slackin’ big time!
    Dani…good to hear you’ve been enjoying the mixes on this site. It’s a great collective of DJs…there a lot of talent in Toronto!
    By way of Munich (not sure of your name)…Small world, eh!? That night at Cafe Moskau was crazy! Unfortunately, I just became a father and am taking a little time off from gigs…so I’m not spinning in Toronto this month. Be sure to check out some of the other DJs on this site and look for their names in the NOW & EYE Magazine listings (the free newspapers you can find throughout the city). I’m sure one of the CR8APES DJs is playing music this month…you won’t be disappointed, trust me!
    Thanks for listening,
    Brock Boogie
