Hip Hop Corner Vol.10 DJ Invizible

 

Hip Hop Corner Vol.10 DJ InvizibleThis time of the year is all about spreading goods vibes and cheers, so we figured we’d venture to the heart of it all. The Okanagan Valley. More specifically Kelowna,BC

Here we have the pleasure of linking up with Kelowna’s most notorious man on the decks, DJ Invizible. The holidays are right around the corner and we all know you can’t have good times with out good tunes. So warm up the amps and crank the speakers because Vol.10 is about to commence.

Enjoy!

 

 

Have a little read and get to know the man behind the mix. 

SlowDJ’s: First and foremost all of us at SlowDJ’s are truly appreciative that you had the time to compile such a great mix at such a busy time of the year.

This is the perfect way to crack open the holidays.

SlowDJ’s: We knew you were gonna flip it up when we spoke about the mix but we had no idea that its was going to be this freshly flipped.

Was this your game plan from the jump or did the tracks just fall into place?

Invizible: Thank you guys for giving me the platform to show case and giving me a good reason to drop a long overdue mix.

Dj Premier, Revolution and Dj Spinbad have always been inspirational to me in Djing so I was really keen on putting a intro together with scratches forming sentences and also throwing down interludes throughout the mix with some scratching in it. As far as the songs go I had a lot of late nights going through my library looking for songs. I really wanted to incorporate new beats with throwback acapellas.

SlowDJ’s: People may not know this but your a mean turntablist, what or who got you hooked on the 1s and 2s?

Invizible: Then growing up listening to hip hop music I got to know the DJ’s like  Jam Master Jay, Premier, Evil Dee, Eric B ect….. Then I discovered battle DJ’s like the Invizible Skratch Piklz, Xecusioners, Beat Junkies and Allies and that took it to a new level of for me and I’ve been hooked ever since.

SlowDJ’s: Being your a DJ that spins multiple genres of music, is there one person/peoples or group that you would love to share the stage with?

Invizible: I have always loved the Roots and now that they do Fallon I would be hyped to do some cuts over

?uestlove live on the drums.

SlowDJ’s: SlowDJ’s are buying’ what are you drinkin?

Invizible: If you guys are buying it would have to be a Pabst Blue Ribbon because I’m all ghetto all the time.

Hip Hop Corner Vol.8 Folivora

In this edition we travel eastbound to the other side of the Canadian Rockies to link up with Calgary’s 2014 DMC Champion “Folivora” formally known to the world as “Dustin Def”

This super fresh mixtape kicks off with a slick original piece right into what this man does best “sweet ass cuts”
The cuts,the blends the track choices,it’s all here and waiting for you to press play.

Have a listen and little read, get to know the man behind the mix.

SlowDJ’s: Thank you so much for coming onboard for Mixtape Vol.8, I know it took a minute for us to link

up for this project but i have to say the wait was well worth it!

 

SlowDJ’s: People have been asking, whats with your name? You were formally known to the world as “Dustin Def”

2014 Calgary DMC Champ and now you go as “Folivora”

Was this something in the works for a while or was it just time for a switch?

Folivora:

Folivora is the moniker I have been using for my beat production and more bass/electronic projects. The name is actually the scientific term for Sloths. I got the nickname Sloth from my close friends growing up because it sometimes took me longer than usual to do things or would spend too much time on the couch.  I guess it came to a point where I should choose one or the other, I still go by Dustin Def if I’m playing a predominantly hip-hop oriented show.

 

SlowDJ’s: At 14 years old you rocked your first decks. Who or what got you so interested in the DJ world?

Folivora:

Growing up, my friends and I got into hip-hop quite early. I remember as far back as grade 4 I was exchanging and trading rap and hip-hop tapes and cds with friends. This was before mp3’s so we would literally bug our parents to get us music and sign us up for Columbia House. After listening to hip-hop since ’92-’93 I eventually wanted to get behind the music, and it was listening to Funk Master Flex mixtapes I decided I wanted to be a DJ. Around 1997 I was watching Much Music one day and A-Trak was doing a showcase, he had someone handing him records as he cut them up and juggled them and I noticed he was super young so I knew at this point I had to do whatever it took to start becoming a turntablist.

 

SlowDJ’s: Is producing the next natural step in your DJ career?

Folivora:

Yeah, I bought my first MPC in 2008 and have been learning how to make beats ever since. I usually incorporate a few of my own beats in my mixes these days, however I would like to get to a point where I can play a full set of my own music.

SlowDJ’s: As a DJ,records are sacred. If you could only keep or obtain 5 pieces of wax what would they be?

Folivora:

Hmm, That’s a tough question.

I’ll go in the direction of records I would keep:

Soulsides – Greatest Bumps – (A gift from my sister )

People Under The Stairs – Highlighter (A gift from my girlfriend)

DJ Krush – Kakusei

Peanut Butter Wolf – Peanut Butter Breaks

Gang Starr – Moment Of Truth LP (always a party saver)

 

SlowDJ’s: SlowDJ’s are buying’ what are you drink in?

Folivora:

Double Long Island Iced Tea!!!

Hip Hop Corner Vol.7 ILL.Pete (Mass Appeal Kiel)

HHC VOL.7 - iLL Pete (Mass Appeal Kiel)

SlowDJ’s HHC Vol.7 takes us on a journey, not only through super fresh beats but across the North Atlantic Ocean to Kiel Germany.

Here we popped our international mixtape cherry, by linking up with ILL.Pete of the Mass Appeal crew.

A mixtape well worthy of its travels!

Cuts,blends,rare gems and a front to back layout that will have you going back more.

Enjoy the journey!

Get to know the man behind the mix

SlowDJ’s: For everyone outside of Germany, who is ILL.Pete and Mass Appeal Kiel?

ILL.Pete

I’m a 28 years old dude who loves music, film and skateboarding and everything about hip-hop culture. At the moment I’m working as a freelancer in film production doing image films and music videos. Along with my homie Chrischy I organize and play the Mass Appeal party in Kiel. For more than 3 years Mass Appeal is all about hip-hop, reggae and bass, diverse and danceable. Usually we invite out-of-town guest Djs to keep the party fresh and inspiring.

SlowDJ’s: This mix is so up our alley! Mobb Deep,Black Moon,Group Home,Fu-Schnickens etc. Have you always been drawn to this style of hip-hop?

ILL.Pete

Back in the days when I tried hard to be different from my older sisters who liked to listen to Metallica, Nirvana and Blondie I discovered hip-hop for myself. At first there was KRS One, Nas, Mobb Deep, MOP and some German rap, a bit later I also digged a lot of David Banner, Bun B, 8Ball & MJG and stuff like that. I’ve always listened to all kinds of hip-hop. From Dipset to Dilated, from Jadakiss to Jamal. Because I started listening to hip-hop in the early 2000-something years I missed the „Golden Era“ and that’s why I still discover lots of great rap from the 90ies nowadays. Beyond hip-hop I’ve always loved reggae and dancehall music. Actually my first vinyls were some Burro Banton and Anthony B 7-inches. So I’ve always been drawn by the Boom Bap as well as by a lot of other Influences.

SlowDJ’s: Was there anyone or anything specific that lead you down the rabbit hole of DJing?

ILL.Pete

One day my homie Hannes bought a turntable and a mixer… After I tried my first Baby Scratch I knew I had to possess my own turntables. I had to wait 2 Years till I saved enough money to buy them. After I played my first set at a private party (I only had enough records to play 1,5 hours) I was addicted. „I got a craving like I fiend for nicotine, but I didn’t need a cigarette, know what I mean?„ That’s it.

SlowDJ’s: As a DJ,records are sacred. If you could only keep or obtain 5 pieces of wax what would they be?

ILL.Pete

Ouuuuuh really hard …. I’d rather like to obtain 50 records…..

1. Guts – Le Bienheureux

2. Mobb Deep – Infamous

3. Shurik’n – Ou je vis

4. Nightmares On Wax – In a space outta sound
