LOOKOUT Mix #12 – Skratch Bastid – Live at FFUN BBQ

And then it hits you. Yeah, summer's over, but at least we were able to say goodbye in the tradition known as #FFUN. Superhero DJ Skratch Bastid surprised us with a special set on the Tokyo rooftop last Saturday, and damn was that clutch after a series unforeseen, unfortunate, and unrelated events prevented some of our good homies from reaching the decks on the sun scorched afternoon. As the air cooled down, Skratch heated the party up. So we give you this recording of his live set to keep your memories hot while the chill sets in and the last of your BBQ coals turn to dust.

LOOKOUT Mixtape No. 7: "For Each Other" mixed by Tronald Trump

LOOKOUT Mixtape #7: "For Each Other" by Tronald Trump

Montreal native Tronald Trump is a man of many different styles/sounds/flavors. Over the last 8 years he has been earning his stripes playing clubs, bars, backyards, basements, fashion shows... You name it!

Getting put on by Skratch Bastid at his infamous Thursday night at Blizzarts, Tron got to flex what he had for a demanding crowd all while having one of the best mentors a thriving DJ could ask for. With this more moves were made, having known Guilty for years they decided to started up there own weekly night at Lola Lounge (RIP). This led to regular gigs around the city including the late great CODA (I will never forget that night with the legend Dj Premier), some only pictures could explain all night house jams, and he was on the Le Spank (Saturdays at Blue Dog) team during it's nearly 3 year run.

No matter how chique or shitty, the setting doesn't matter as much when you got the right music.

Download the latest Lookout mix, a combination of heavily hip hop influenced House music and anything else that is groovy enough.

And if you want to dance make sure to catch Tronald Trump along with Guilty at Velvet (426 Rue Saint Gabriel) on Saturday April 16th...

LOOKOUT Mixtape #2: Hovatron – “Rain In Montreal”

Montreal's resident R&B robot and Night Trackin' loc Hovatron is the latest to craft together a mix for the Lookout series. The R.Kelly-themed cover art belies it's bubblegum sheen, but don't get it twisted, this mix is as dirty it gets. From the raunchy bedroom tales of Lil B and Nicki Minaj to the dubbed out garage fury of UK producers like Kingdom, Ramadanman, and Doc Daneeka, Hovatron's take on the Lookout mix is required listening heading into the big POP MTL Lookout showcase featuring Hudson Mohawke, Machinedrum, Lunice, and big Hov himself. Mix and tracklist below, peep game!

Sepalcure Mix for XLR8R

The UK gets most of the shine for the whole post-dubstep/future-garage/whatever-the-hell-it's-called-this-week scene, but a few US artists have been making some noise over on this side of the pond. One such act is Sepalcure, the Brooklyn-based duo of Travis Stewart (a.k.a. Machinedrum) and Praveen Sharma. After years spent working together running the Cassette NYC club night and the online mix archive Percussion Lab, last year the producers joined forced in the studio, focusing on the soulful sounds of '90s house, 2-step, and UK bass music. Their debut, the Love Pressure EP, dropped earlier this summer on the esteemed Hotflush label, and now we've corralled the boys into assembling an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast. And not to get all patriotic and flag-waving, but Sepalcure has done the US of A real proud here, expanding their sound palette even further while adeptly shifting tempos, moods, and styles over the course of 23 tracks and 51 minutes.
