November 2016 DnB Top 10
This month's tunes have a good mix from some amazing producers that are really coming into their own. Tyke's "Dream Catcher" is as good of a dancefloor mover as I've heard in a long time. Huge tunes from Break/Kyo in "Give In To Me" and Metrik with "Electric Echo", and beautiful, urgently soulful business in Bailey's "Stargazing" and SUV & Jaxx's jungle stepper "No Discrimination."
Most of these will make an appearance on my birthday event - #TDotLove at Bassline. See you there.
My birthday - #TDotLove 30
It's that time of year again, which means it's time to rave for charity. We're getting back to the reason we started throwing #TDotLove - pushing the talent that just doesn't get enough damn play in this city. We welcome back the #TDotLove veteran DJ Remedy, alongside the increbily talented Bandit Emcee. I'm in the DTYD set, and being set up by Dub Trauma with Savvy C, who so impressed us last month that we couldn't wait to have her back. My homeboy Tranzit will kick the night off until the cheap cover/cheap drinks end, so you win three times over.
Facebook event page here. See you on the dancefloor.
Datty's June 2016 Top 10 Drum n' Bass
This month's list is mostly good-time tunes, with a bit of the pretty stuff mixed in. Jungle music is having a renaissance of late, and there's some outright sexy business being made, with original vocals. Potential Badboy's "Revolution" is case in point. I'm also featuring some home-grown Toronto business on Inner City Dance and Intaface Audio here - not out of some sense of obligation, but because the tunes are fierce. Skaylz, The Junk-E & RMS' "Test Tube" is rolling thunder, and DCision & Colin All Shotz "Doors of Perception" brings vibes ever upwards.
You can play them straight off of Juno's site as well.

We went a little long on this one - about 1.5 hours. Tranzit kicks it off, and I cover the second half with some upbeat tunes from virtually unknown and lesser-known producers.

#TDotLove 26: Seed Organization & MC Clinton Sly (Montreal)
This month's #TDotLove, we're excited to welcome this dub/roots/drum n' bass combo in from Montreal. Clinton Sly was last here to battle in our Synergy Soundclash a couple of years back, and we enjoyed his work so much, we vowed to have him back. We're good to our word. He's bringing one of Canada's best soundsystem DJs to grace our stage - Seed Organization is guaranteed to satisfy.
I'll be setting the stage, and Tranzit will finish you off. We're also welcoming the up & coming DJ Fraktl to work the warmup for his #TDotLove debut - so get there early to support.
