DEAD AIR BASS 44 (INFLUENZA) ((JULY 2017))

I’ve literally had the idea for this episode since I started DAB, back in 2013. An entire hour filled with songs that I have sampled in my bootlegs, remixes, and original productions. It’s the first of several very special projects I’ll be releasing as part of the FINAL 10. I call this one INFLUENZA. Why…



DEAD AIR BASS 42 (BOOTY) ((MAY 2017))

I love ghetto music. Doesn’t matter when or where it’s from, it’s always made with passion, honesty, and urgency. Plus, it’s usually lots of fun. That’s exactly why BOOTY BASS and GHETTO HOUSE are such timeless and beloved genres of music, as long as you can handle some nasty lyrics. Warning: This stuff was…



DEAD AIR BASS 40 (DICK OR NO DICK: THE SOUNDTRACK) ((FEBRUARY 2017))

There’s this amazing bar night in Toronto, called DICK OR NO DICK. It’s an absolute riot and it has inspired me to put together a full hour of songs all about… you guessed it… DICK! This is going to be the filthiest episode of DAB yet. Probably ever.



DEAD AIR BASS 39 (UGLY SWEATER X-MAS PARTY) ((DECEMBER 2016))

This is gonna be one of those truly special musical journeys. Throw on your ugliest sweater and join me as I remix, mashup, and bastardize all your favourite holiday classics, along with some killer Indie vibes, and some rave jams for the hard crew. The most special part of the broadcast will be the…



DEAD AIR BASS 37 (HALLOWEEN WARM-UP) ((OCTOBER 2016))

It’s Halloween season in The 6ix, and that means me doing what I do best by bringing you the 4th annual HALLOWEEN special, but this one will be a bit different from past years. First of all, it will be a Halloween warm up, instead of a recap. More importantly, while I’m usually pretty…



QUICK MIX VAULT: DKGL QUICK HITTER PACK 004 (4:20)

Something about HIP HOP and DANCEHALL marries so naturally with HERB SMOKING. When in charge of soundtracking a smoking session, it really is essential that you have at least a selections from both genres in your play list. I bet it would be helpful if they were short and sweet too. The session aint…



DEAD AIR BASS 35 (#MCADAY2016: A BOOTLEG TRIBUTE TO THE BEASTIE BOYS) ((AUGUST 2016))

August 20th is MCA DAY in Brooklyn, NY. For the 3rd consecutive year, I’ll be getting ready for it by throwing down an hour of BOOTLEGS, MASHUPS, REMIXES, RARITIES, and ORIGINALS, all featuring the incredible music of THE BEASTIE BOYS. Honestly, I think this 3rd edition is the best one yet. If you’re a B-Boys…



QUICK MIX VAULT: DKGL QUICK HITTER PACK 003 (90s)

I asked the people what the theme of the next QUICK HITTER 10 PACK should be and it was unanimous: 90s TUNES!!!

Now, at this point, the 90s have been done to death, so I wanted to make sure the 10 songs I’ve chosen are not ones you’re going to find edits of ANYWHERE…



DEAD AIR BASS 33 (4TH ANNUAL 420 STONER MIX) ((APRIL 2016))

In past years, this mix has aired on the 1st Weds of the month, but to celebrate 4 years of soundtracking your smoking session, it seemed way more proper to put it up right on 4/20. By this point, I’ve got these mixes down to a pretty sound formula. We light up to some DANCEHALL,…



DEAD AIR BASS 30 (FAVOURITES OF ’15) ((JANUARY 2015))

2015 was an amazing year for music. Let’s give it the send-off it deserves with an hour of my favourite jams from the past 52 weeks. This is gonna be really good!
