Big Jacks – Home Is Toronto Vol. 1 Mix

With its own language, style and sound, long gone are the days that tours would skip over TDot in favour of larger markets. At this point, it’s become a staple of inspiration and the second home to some of your favourite artists and producers. The accompanying pride and sense of self that the city has developed almost brings a tear to my eye but luckily Big Jacks is there with Home Is Toronto Vol. 1 to keep me from getting all misty-eyed while I’m on the road.

The tape starts off with a candid soundbyte from The Boy on his super-enunciation vibes band imploring his fellow artists to rep the real version of the city and not some baby-brother-to-NY tip. Featuring all of your favourite Six-side strip club superstars like Syph, Tory Lanez and P Reign with a side of lyricism from cats like Jimmy Prime, this mix slaps from start to end. While there aren’t any new cuts on here, the bulk of the world is still trying to scratch beyond the OVO-surface to figure out what the hell is in the water in the city and there is no better place to start.

Brought to us by Peace Collective and the Grand Groove DJs Big Jacks and Royale, the monthly series will keep y’all updated on all of the hottest records from the North North. For everyone joining us In the TDot for All Star Weekend, do your homework before you touch down, then roll your windows down and let this tape bang down Queen West.
