We started from the bottom, but now #ALLVINYLEVERYTHING is moving on up!
We are taking our jam to the heights inside the amazing NEST at 423 College Street!
Known for its outstanding sound system, NEST has hosted the world’s best DJs, and will be now be the backdrop for Toronto’s premier vinyl party.
Resident DJ’s Mista Jiggz, DJ Agile, and DJ Mensa will be loading up their crates with vibes of all genres and eras. Helping them bless the 1’s and 2’s will be none other than the OG himself: MASTERMIND.
Mastermind is a bona fide legend in Toronto's hip hop scene. His "Street Jam" radio show and catalog of mix tapes were influential in raising a generation of hip-hop fiends in the city. He was on the decks for many pivotal parties, concerts, and events that shaped in the city's culture.
Now a full time radio personality on The Move 93.5, it is extremely rare to hear him rock out on the decks. This set is absolutely not to be missed.
So get hype, assemble your crew, and flock to NEST this Saturday for #ALLVINYLEVERYTHING!
NEST, 423 College St. West (upstairs)
Saturday, April 8, 2017 (and every 2nd Saturday thereafter)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
WHILE WE WAIT FOR THE NEW YEAR'S WAVES OF MUSIC TO COME THROUGH, PEEP SOME OF MY FAVORITE TUNES FROM THE LAST PART OF 2016!
Winter is three months of constant enclosure. The layers that swaddle you. The limited destinations you can travel to. The snow that surrounds your every step.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, so long as you know how to freak it.
Winter facilitates intimacy. The toasty ambience of a good friend’s home is the oasis from the frosty desert. A beverage or two that furthers along good conversation. It brings people closer together and beyond.
DJ Mensa harnesses a stellar year in R’n’B to showcase the atmosphere of a winter link up.

A Tribe Called Quest already has the bulletproof discography, but there is a ton of amazing songs that didn't get as much shine as the big singles. DJ's held the heat because these rare remixes and collaborations were exclusive to the vinyl singles they bought.
For this #ALLVINYLEVERYTHING mini-mix, DJ Mensa explores some of the best b-sides, remixes, and album cuts Tribe had to offer.
