MC Flipside joins the Spotlight Mix Series

Share

Flipside, the voice of the underground. The Juno nominated producer/songwriter/DJ is a trailblazer who continues to define his own unique sound through his production, record labels, captivating flows, and DJ sets. Flipside’s career spans 2 plus decades and he remains one of the bright lights and cutting edge talents to come out of Toronto, Canada, a hotbed for music and internationally respected talents. With recent Top Ten smashes on Lowsteppa’s – Simma Black and Nicky Romero’s mammoth Protocol Recordings, a talent as unique as Flipside’s is a rare occurrence in today’s cookie cutter dance music landscape. 

His timber and chameleon vocal abilities have crafted hits for stars from Deadmau5, Roger Sanchez, Coone, Wolfgang Gartner, Stadium X, Matteo Di Marr, Carlo Lio, Golf Clap, Going Deeper, Bart B More, Krafty Kuts, E-Clyps, MDE, Funkagenda, Kurd Maverick, and so many more. The Flipside sound has also led to recent deals with Billy Kenny’s imprint, This Ain’t Bristol, and a forthcoming single on the iconic and legendary electronic/hip hop label Tommy Boy Records, further cementing his status as one of the most consistent and top songwriters in electronic music today. His DJ sets have provided classic albums such as the Trippin series, Sound of the Underground, Proper Beats in the Mix, among others. 

His production abilities have seen his sound bless labels such as Toolroom, In Stereo, Love and Other, Farriswheel, Phoenix, Black Hole, Sony, and his own imprints Proper Beats and DBR. If this wasn’t enough, his hip hop a.k.a. MIC Perri, has seen his collab with Royce Da 5’9, Jojo Pellegrino, and the late Disco D, who produced the seminal 50 Cent cut – Ski Mask Way! His unique flow and melodies have topped charts on Itunes, Beatport, Traxsource, etc peaking at number one while cracking the Top 100, 50, and overall top 10 multiple times. Consistency and fanatical attention to verbal weaponry keep Flipside’s sound timeless and truly his own.

His next release is a collaboration with Doc Brown on Unlearn:Records including two fresh cuts. Flipside’s sonic creations speak for themselves, and these two brand new collaborations with Doc Brown are perfect examples of both producers’ prowess. Both tracks are absolutely massive, with dark rolling grooves & signature hooks that will permeate your headspace long after listening! Listen to the EP above and grab them on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
