Hey kiddos! Okay, I have a treat for you! And no it’s not a nudie photo of myself covered in coconut oil, holding a gun. I know you’d be stoked cos there is nothing hotter than a fat old hairy man doing that… But I have other news! Vancouver’s very own lil ray of sunshine, Desirée Dawson has been killing it lately with her album Wild Heart, which went on to crack millions of plays online and make ladies and gents cry. The winner of CBC’s Searchlight Competition 2016 (Desirée) has teamed up with SKIO MUSIC and Vintage Currency Music to host a remix competition of her soulful Ukulele single Wild Heart, which was originally produced by none other than hometown hero, Mr. Konrad OldMoney himself. The winner of the remix competition was WYOMI from Sweden.
Looks like the damn Swedes did it again with their pop knowledge and shocking hair. This is some really dope brooding futurebass inspired ish. There are many amazing remixes of this song in the playlist below. Vintage Currency must have gotten some serious FOMO because they got 13 of these mufuckas in here! Runners up were Iset Sankofa and the Grei Show, and Sampet. In my opinion, Hazmatt remix has a dope drop and Gabe Mabry has a really dope chord structure and a fly ass remix overall . Each remix offers something different and all these dudes did their thing… Show Desirée and the artists some support for their hard work and share the hell out of this thing ;)

account after account dodging the copy-write police. Leaving fans chasing
his name through the search bar time and again..
Get into this one hour mix featuring the mashes so many of us have been
chasing all this time. Free download available for the masses.
Just three short months and a season ago MYNXY & Unkle Ricky paired for their 2016 Fvded In The Park Mixtape. The tracklist was made up of all performing artists for the Vancouver festival. Quite a feat to mix smoothly, not to mention the ambition of a project like that. At that point it was a must to featured the two Vancouver based artists who’s collaborations are ongoing.
#FCMV74 takes a tone with less Trap and focuses more on the house spectrum. Bass House, Deep House and the original productions MYNXY & Unkle Ricky made together like ‘I don’t Need You Now,’ ‘Make Me Happy,’ and the opening track ‘Come Stay With Me Tonight’ make up this club ready 40 minute mix. Download and tracklist after the jump.
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had the mix series get injected with some pep in it’s step. Thankfully Miami’s Adam Foster was able to come through with a chill and Deep House hour long set to right the mood, end the hiatus, and elevate x chill the energy in a way that the doctor would have recommend if he had known about the hiatus.. Adam kicks things off with his new single ‘Don’t Give It Up’ featuiring Daniela (linked below). Without further adieu Id like to thank Adam Foster, and to everyone who’s been with us since the jump. Download via SqueakShark and tracklist after the jump.
REZZ’s performance at Shambhala 2016 is still spinning heads. Weeks later. It’s now made it’s way to Soundcloud for easy mind boggling bass goodness. Check the video after the jump.
The stacked on stacked FVDED In The Park descended over the weekend on Surrey x Vancouver. Leaving many unable to escape their bedrooms or the times they had and shared over the weekend. Thankfully locals Unkle Ricky & MYNXY put together an all lineup inclusive mix for the longevity of the reminisce.

Music At The View 2016 is just a few short days away now, in Tonasket Washington. The 3 day long music festival runs from May 20th – 22nd. In anticipation of the festival we’ve reached out to a couple of artists who we are most excited to see perform this year for interview.
First up is Seattle based Trap & Experimental Bass Producer and DJ ShermGerm. In the short time we’ve been familiar with the artist his catalog has stood to impress. Numerous uploads of what can be said is his signature sound of Trap and Experimental Bass. Elements of Grime, even Glitch-Hop, and an audibly clean Hip Hop influence all add to what is #GermTrap For promo, and plain overall hype purposes ShermGerm has hooked up an exclusive promo mix made up of almost entirely original material along with some words so we can all do the get to know.
Can you talk a bit about how your listening habits grew into your productions style? i.e. Who you were listening to early on in Electronic music, or mentors, or previous projects x bands?
It really started with oldschool hiphop beats back when I was like 8 years old. Groups like Beastie Boys, Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, Gorillaz really set me into my beat making ways. The first electronic music i discovered was Daft Punk and that took me down the path of Aphex Twins and other trippy producers.
Do you have a favourite venue in Seattle, and or one you recommend to newcomers to the city?
I think Q night club is holding it down right now, also Moneky Loft & Club Sur always comes threw with good vibes.
Is this going to be your first year performing Music At The View?
Yes it will be my first time playing here. I couldnt be more excited to make new friends and share my music with new ears.
Are you planning on spending the weekend at the festival?
Yea I’ll be camping out all weekend, come find me and chill.
When your camping (like many attendees no doubt will be), what are some of the essentials x simple pleasures you pack for yourself?
I keep it all down to one backpack, I bring water, snacks,a few prepared meals and thats it. I dont bring much of anything for personal entertainment.
From the perspective of an attendee, what makes a memorable performance from and artist at a festival?
Hearing music I have never heard is what stands out most for me. I like hearing new sounds and styles.
Quick on the subject of the Soundcloud peerage where do you stand? Have you begun migrating your catalog to other platforms as of yet?
I really only upload to soundcloud right now, I’m working on getting more music up on bandcamp though.
What have you got in store for the remainder of the year?
I’m finishing up 2 EPs right now for some summer releases. I’m also planning out all my upcoming shows, this summer is gonna get busy and i cant wait to share my music along the West Coast!
Care to sign this off with an quotable quotes, words to live by, or shout outs?
Make music out of love!
Tuesday, yet again. After another classic weekend of debauchery, our minds are torn as to whether we should keep the energy going, or take some time to chill out. Music seems to be the only thing that can serve both my need for tranquility but also the fuel to carry on. I’ve compiled a short list of tracks that will help to ease the pain of existence (jk).
As always, feel free to tweet us out if you have any tracks that deserve our attention!
Once again reaffirming himself as one of musics most valid mainstays A-Trak pays homage to the time of the Blogsphere with an all circa 2007-2009 hour long. Tracklist holding some of the bigger and better “BLOG HAUS, INDIE DANCE, DISTORTED ELECTRO, FIDGET” that pushed it all.
