July 21st, 2009 -- PODCAST

What's good?

We got it going tonight with a Double Shot from DJ Spinna's new album, "Sonic Smash". This talented DJ and producer has worked with the biggest names in Hip-Hop, and does not disappoint with this new disc. Features include Torae, Homeboy Sandman, P. Casso and plenty more, so do not sleep on this one.

We were joined live in studio by the 2009 Red Bull 3Style DJ Competition champion, DJ Mensa. We discussed the T. Dot scene and Rock The Bells before he got into a sick mix of his own, giving DJ Sage the rare break! Check Mensa out at!

Emotionz also slid into the spot to run down some events and give our listeners a sneak peak at his new album, "Kush". We bumped a few new tracks, all of which were heat. Check out the album on iTunes on August 3rd, 2009! If you're in or around the Vancouver area on that date, hit The Modern (in Gastown) for Emotionz "Kush" album release party! Don't miss out! Hit up Emotionz on MySpace ( for more details about "Kush" and Monday Night Live!

Overall, we were treated to a very dope night of great tracks courtesy of DJ Sage, DJ Mensa and Emotionz. We really let the music do the talking this time, with cuts from Q-Tip, Jay Kin, Tona, Jadakiss, J Dilla, DJ Quik & Kurupt, Drake, Emotionz and plenty more. Don't sleep on this show!
