"Beauty Isn't Always Pretty" ~ mixed by dj sprouT for Artist Chad Depner @ _space Gallery - July 2019
Important Note: on Mixcloud - there is a tiny glitch at the beginning - but this was not recorded on my end - so it's not in the download link... jus'so'ya'know!
I was so honoured to have been invited to dj a set at Artist Chad Depner's Closing Party & Auction at _space - BC's first interchangeable arts & alternative healing centre https://spaceartscentre.com/depner-beauty-isnt-always-pretty
Peep Depner on:
I went with my gut and these are the tracks that I finally chose.
I am feeling a call-back to play more Breaks again and have been loving Bass House ... and of course, as always you'll find some tech, progressive-ish house, a touch of techno and always a remix or 2...
Please share a comment or I'd love if you gave me a review on my Facebook Page >>> https://www.facebook.com/djsprouT/
Let Love Rule
PS: You rock

Soooo... I've been wanting to complete Pt. 2 of my "Music Is The Answer". These are songs I've wanted to put together since Dec. 2018 -- so my next mix will be tracks from 2019 - but I didn't want these to go unheard...
I've decided that I am going back to the way I've always mixed - starting with about 115 BPM- and then journeying through to about 125bpm (likely in 2 parts like this one) - and will be including nu-disco, indie dance, all kind of house and breaks. Yay!
I am also enjoying so many different kinds of music and hope to make more mixes for intuitive dance, world music and more. Stay tuned.

Hi! Exciting news...
So, a few months ago I was interviewed to be included in an article about female djs in Squamish. I had a super fun time sharing my experiences and dj'ing for Haley as she took notes and photos! Thank you also to Craig, aka dj Craiger, for coming up with the idea and hosting it on What's on Sea to Sky...
I am truly honoured.
"In the mid-2000s, electronic music was an underground phenomenon in the Sea to Sky.
Sometimes parties took place quite literally in the shadows; the shadows of towering trees in the Squamish Valley and below the majestic mountains across BC.
In most places the people making the music – a niche hobby that required rare skills and costly setup – was a male-dominated crowd. But as the scene began in the Sea to Sky, some of the best known DJs building it were women, bringing the party to the riverbanks and red cedars groves as the music scene flourished...

I am so absolutely honoured to dj and support The PLUR Collective for their ongoing fundraiser for Youth Empowerment: PANTS OFF DANCE OFF. Youth Unleashing Power is Canada’s first and only national symposium created by and for HIV / HCV positive youth. All funds raised from this event support travel costs for positive youth to attend the symposium. Over the past year and a half, #PODO has donated $3200 to YUP!! PANTS OFF DANCE OFF is a body+ queer friendly event, and is inspired by and in homage to the No Pants No Problem (http://jessicawhitbread.com/project/no-pants-no-problem/) parties that are held in support of women with HIV and have grown to international fame. Join us Friday, January 26th in Victoria BC at The Copper Owl!
Presented by the PLUR collective
The PLUR collective creates intentional spaces for creativity that honour the history of PLUR: Peace, Love, Unity & Respect. expect events that are ecologically conscious, are queer friendly, and are firmly grounded in principles of consent and harm reduction, often in benefit or service to local causes that are important to us. We acknowledge this event takes place on the homelands of the Lekwungen People.

They brought life to my limbs and love to my heart.

This mix was intuitively guided by the Spirit of The Eagle for a themed event on Self-Leadership. When I sense into Self-Leadership for myself I think of an animal like the Eagle. You might find a different animal to join you on this journey. Explore that and have fun with it. The songs are a mix of songs I was drawn to on YouTube and then mixed with Garage Band on my laptop.
"All these energies [the 5Rhythms: flow, staccato, chaos, lyrical, stillness] come together in you. In your deepest center, you are the stillpoint. You are the rhythm beyond stillness, the feeling beyond compassion, the sexual energy beyond celibacy, the life force beyond death, the vibration beyond inspiration.The moving center is within you.” ~ Gabrielle Roth — Maps to Ecstasy
How to use this mix
The Dance (some ideas if this is your first time)
- Beginning with the singing bowls allows us to slow our movements into flow and also root into rooting.
- Connecting with our heart-centre, the place of love and trust, we can begin to trust ourself to guide us on the dancing path and ask: how do I move at my core?
- As we find ourselves rooting and flowing- we can begin to open like a flower
- Hearing the Eagle calls can give us a birds eye view and we can let ourselves fly
- In the last song ask: How can I build a shrine for all things Self-leadership - how does this translate into movement?
Today was the Women's March around the world. Some women / people have the freedom and privilege and health to march, some don't. Thank you to everyone who keeps fighting and praying for my right to be a female dj (and to feel safe- which hasn't always been the case) - this is for all youz.
This was my first time recording on the new DDJ SX2 controller - I have played and recorded my mixes on turntables (since the late 90's) - but I couldn't link this crazy new machine to my controller vinyls w/o a certain added pak- so here you go--- my first time recording on this cd controller, even though I have hardly played / practised on it. This was my first take and didn't edit anything.
I found it to be a lot of fun. I journey through Deep / Tech and Electro House, Breaks & Glitch Hop
I simply want to share the music. I always want to dance.
