Chase March on the Gripple Effect Mixshow

I am the guest DJ for the latest edition of The Gripple Effect Mixshow.

It’s an open-format show that highlights the art and skill of various deejays. Hosted by DJ Gripski, the show has absolutely no limits. A DJ is free to craft a mix of any length that covers any genre.

I wanted to have fun with this mix and play things I wouldn’t normally get the chance to play on my underground hip-hop show, Word is Bond Rap Radio. So there is some funk, some pop, some hip-hop, and a few instrumental tracks. I’m quite proud of how it turned out.

When I recorded this mixset, I played a song called Freedom and felt like I should mix it into another track by the same title. At the time, I didn’t realize that my guest stint for the show would be featured for episode 55. It made me think of the old commercials I used to hear for Freedom 55. I haven’t seen or heard a commercial from them in a while, and this is by no means a recommendation of their services. I just thought it was a nice plan on words and the theme of my mix.

Please visit DJ Gripski’s website and subscribe to his podcast. It celebrates the art of deejaying and features great mixsets every single month.

Download or stream DJ Chase March – Freedom 55 from the Gripple Effect Mixshow page.

150 Canadian Hip-Hop Tracks Celebrating Canada 150!

I wanted to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial with a special edition of Word is Bond Rap Radio. My goal was to play 150 Canadian hip-hop tracks to help celebrate Canada 150!

Last week, we started the quest and managed to play 30 tracks. Needless to say, this might take a a few more episodes to complete. But we will do it. There are so many great Canadian rap tracks. I look forward to highlighting some of the great ones in my collection.

If you have any requests, please leave a comment below, get at me on Facebook or Twitter, or call in to the station when we are live.

We started this show off with a Mobb Deep song to pay tribute to Prodigy. We lost him way too soon. I did a tribute mixset for him on the weekend when I was the guest DJ for Break North Radio.

It only felt right to have a guest DJ kick off this special. DJ Mark the Mechanic blessed the show with some Canadian hip-hop classics and even spun a few that I had completely forgotten about.

Then, up-and-coming Vaughan emcee, Trist4n, strolled through to talk about his new single and forthcoming album.

Finally, I closed off the night by jumping on the 1s and 2s to bring some more Canadian hip-hop jams.

This show features these tunes . . .
