The Cocktail Hour ft. Treasure Fingers

#FlashbackFriday all the way to 2009

It was a different era of dance music back then. A young me was listening to the punky roots of electro with guys like the Bloody Beetroots and MSTRKRFT, all the while dudes like Treasure Fingers were busy working away on the disco revival.

Well guess what Treasure, it took me 5 years but I’m really feeling the cut of your jib. Maybe I needed to be in my late 20s to appreciate the finer sides of dance music but the important part is I’m here now!

This mix holds the fuck up. He even noted that there are still some unreleased tracks on here. That’s how it goes I guess, the world isn’t always read to catch the fever. There are some absolute classics in here though, Ready 2 Wear is an all time fav and Empire of the Sun is timeless.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Treasure Fingers

Foooooooools Gooooooooooold

To anyone who’s heard them, those words are synonymous with the awesomness. Here we have New Yorks own Treasure Fingers represents everything the FG family is about.

That is to say he’s all sorts of funky, groovy, and dirty. All with some of that hip hop influenced NYC grit.

He put down one of my favorite sets at Pemberton Music Festival because of his no gimmick stage presence that let his mixing and track selection do the work for him. And it did work.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Sleep Tom – The Currency Mix

This week im proud to once again be repping Vancouver’s brightest up and comer, Sleepy Tom. Maybe its the rain that keeps these lethargic bros like Tom and Lazy Rich on the couch but its all cool by me if that’s where they produce all this sweet music.

Toms work habits are far from lazy. His EP, The Currency just dropped on my favorite record label – Fools Gold – and hes set to headline this weeks #FVDED event at Celebrities.

A-Trak: A love story..

A-Trak is one of my favorite DJs for a so many reasons. He’s Canadian. He wears fedoras like, really well. He’s been the best scratch DJ in the world since he was 15. I’m not even exaggerating at all. You have to see it, I don’t know how he does it! It just sits up there super chill and not douchy at all.

Look at this guy.

He’s 1/2 of Duck Sauce. He runs the coolest record label, Fools Gold, which has signed the coolest artist.. Danny Brown, Chromeo, Tommy Trash, Flosstradamus, Kavinsky, just to name a few.  He also runs this super weird and awesome YouTube channel with Diplo and Skrillex, POTATOwillEATyou.

Most importantly though, I saw him at a my first music festival in 2010. Back when I had no idea what kind of music I liked or what artists were my favorite.. I was just on an adventure. Then I stumbled into the dance tent and witnessed Trizzy scratching Robot Rock by Daft Punk. This. This is what its all about.

I cant WAIT to see him blow the roof off Celebrities tonight!! Get your tickets right hurr
