HOT SAUCE 2.0 mini mix by Shingo Shimizu


To comemorate the launch of the new home of our music blog: HotSauce, we threw down a party last Friday. It was pretty packed tight that night. Thank you to all those who made it, despite the cold dense foggy weather that night! Passing by Trinity Bellwoods park, it looked like some serious ghost action going down. Blurred lights and shadows. (Spooky!) Check out some of the photos here on FB. Big thank yous go out to Ted P for our new site, and A-Lo for the awesome visuals!

My mini mix is a pretty tightly packed 28 minute mix, as we gave out CDs with all three of our mixes (missruckus', urbansteve's and mine) on it. I've kept it pretty lean, but made it as fun as possible at the same time. Let me know what you think! Enjoy.

NEW: Hot Sauce #3 mix! by Shingo Shimizu

I know it's been a long time for this next installment. There's just so much great music out at the moment, it was very difficult to narrow down for mix #3. So whatever didn't make it for this one, will definitely be on #4. I've also got some dark weird stuff set aside (cuz I have weird taste), so...maybe I'll wait till I get all the fun stuff out of the way. In the future, I was thinking maybe leaning towards more themed mixes: an 'all house', 'boogie' mix or 'rock mix' for example. Anyhow, this time around in classic Hot Sauce fashion, I've managed to get in a bit of everything: some boogie, a bit of house, some funky, and a whole lotta dubstep. The latter of which isn't being played enough in Toronto. Let me know what you think! Tracklisting coming soon (just Shazam it! j/k). Enjoy.



Hot Sauce #2 mix by Shingo Shimizu


I finally came around to putting together another short mix with a little bit of everything. It's sort of different this time around than my usual stuff, because I incorporated some Dubstep. I never considered myself as a 'house head' even though I usually play mostly house. Lately there's been a such a huge surge in musical creativity that it can't be ignored! So I had to incorporate some of those new directions in music that I find pretty exciting, into this mix. Also I couldn't resist tacking on a very 90s breaks-sounding by one of my favourite Dubstep artists, Zomby at the end. It's a bit rough around the edges, as Dubstep is pretty different from House. Anyhow, download it and hit the PLAY button. Let me know what you think! Enjoy.

Hot Sauce #1 mix (Just the Tip) by DJ Shingo by Shingo Shimizu


I finally got around to doing a mix! This is the last mix in our ‘Just the Tip’ series. I was supposed to keep it at 30 minutes, but I went further with 51 minutes. It’s a bit difficult to include all types of music that I’m into one short mix of course. Regardless I’ve kept it pretty much on the fun side of things, with tracks that I instantly loved. (ie: Dam Funk, Apiento Edit of Sade’s ‘Paradise’, NSI, etc.). By the way, anybody going to catch the Dam Funk show at the Drake Underground tonight? Haven’t seen him perform yet…or is it a DJ set? Not crazy about the venue, but Dammmmmm Funk! (somebody bring me a coffee). Hopefully see you there!

Anyhow, back to this mix… it’s pretty laid back and chill for the first 2/3 then kicks in the last 1/3. You can download it below. Enjoy!
