MONTHLY MIXTAPE REVIEW: WAX HANDS – LIVE AT PACHA 8/2/2014

I’m not gonna lie. A great way to get your mix reviewed on DKGL is to drop a tune involving yours truly, ol’ GOBS. Ofcourse, my tunes have been dropped in some pretty stinky mixes. It still needs to be good enough to sit amongst all of the exceptional tapes that have appeared here, over…



MONTHLY MIXTAPE REVIEW: ANONYMOUS – TUNES TO LOSE YOUR SH!T TO! (CONTINUOUS DJ MIX 2)

This is going to be a very different MIXTAPE review because, unlike every other mix found on this site, there is no artistic intention behind it. The DJ responsible for this “continuous DJ mix” is not even credited. I can’t tell you about who made it, or why, or say anything of the style in…



MONTHLY MIXTAPE REVIEW: L-VIS 1990 PRESENTS DANCE SYSTEM – WORKOUT MODULE 001

Slip into your exercise attire, and get ready to work that MF!

L-VIS 1990

I was first exposed to this UK born New Yorker in 2009, and he very quickly became my favourite artist, for a while. His music was a fusion of GARAGE and TROPICAL BASS executed in a way that was uniquely his. I was…



MONTHLY MIXTAPE REVIEW: MUMDANCE – TWISTS & TURNS

As 2013 draws to a close, and everybody is preparing their best of lists, and reminiscing about what they heard the most of this year, I’m gonna do the opposite, and review a MIXTAPE that is very different from anything I’ve posted on this blog before.

MUMDANCE

The first era of his productions was heavily influenced by…



DKGL YEAR 4 – THE JUMPOFF!!!

I’m sure you’ve noticed that things have changed around here. DKGL has an exciting new, responsive layout to kick off Year 4. It’s sleek, sophisticated, and maybe even a little more grown up. Don’t go thinking I’ve gone all mature on you. This blog is still gonna be tonnes of fun.



MIXTAPE MONDAY: ILL.GATES – RE:MIX:TAPE

When a man considered, by many, to be the best sequencer in the world, and a true guru of EDM, releases a DJ mix, expect it to be of only the highest possible quality.

MIXTAPE MONDAY: FAYDZ & TWISTA – BACK TO THE FUTURE (RAVE MIX)

All of the mixes reviewed in this monthly series, as of late, have been on the deeper, more chilled side of EDM. As summer time quickly approaches, I think we need to get back to sets of straight up, high energy, tear out music! Below is one that satisfies all that criteria, while still managing…



MOVIE MONDAY: UNAIRED BEASTIES, MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU, and ULTIMATE ZOMBIE RAVE

May isn’t even over yet, and it’s already been an epic month. Since it’s a holiday, in Canada, today, I know at least a good portion of you are at home chillin’ so here’s some choice viewing material to keep you occupied on your day off.

Q.G. – BOMB DISASTER

Wowwww! Extremely epic ZOMBIE themed music vid….



MIXTAPE MONDAY: POOLSIDE – SEASONS CHANGE (FALL/WINTER MIXTAPE)

I’ve been working on a remix all day. The last thing I wanna do, right now, is blow my ears out more with some loud, aggressive EDM. So tonight, I’m reviewing what’s been my go to MIXTAPE for chilling time.

MIXTAPE MONDAY: TOMMIE SUNSHINE – WHERE’S THE #EDM

The majority of the time, the merit of a  MIXTAPE is purely for our enjoyment, and we’d never expect anything more of one. Nevertheless, a Mix holds the potential to prove a point, or even make a political statement. The following mix is not only a fine example of this, it’s possibly the best one.
