LiT MIX 021 :: Dem Ones

LT_LitMix_DEMONES_021_white.jpg

DJ Dem Ones delivers a lively LiT MIX of dancehall, reggae, moombahton, r’n’b, trap and afrobeats to keep us bubblin' thru winter! Representing #mightygang from Brampton, Dem Ones has energized crowds across Canada as touring DJ for Haviah Mighty.

 

Watch their Boiler Room set from Vancouver’s Fortune Sound Club, or  their Caribana-themed music video “Ba Na Na” with A Tribe Called Red, Odario & Chippewa Travellers, and you’ll see how Dem Ones is more than a DJ, she’s a hype woman backing up her performing partners whether that's on dem ones and twos, on the mic, dancing or vibing up the crowd too. 

Mixing wise, the cuts are quick, the dubwise effects are live, and you can tell she had as much fun recording this LiT MiX as we will dancing to it. No wonder she’s the fox with the aux at house parties - now if only we could catch her on tour again soon, that would be fantastic! Until then, pump up the volume it’s time to get mighty lit to the sounds of DJ Dem Ones!

:: INTERVIEW ::

🔥 Light Twerkerz: How would you describe Light Twerkerz to your parents?

📣 DEM ONES: It's a safe space for free expression.. and twerking. lol

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: If you were sharing this DJ mix to someone you were crushing on, how would you describe it to them?

📣 DEM ONES: "Hey, wanna bubble to my mix?"

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: How did you first discover twerking?

📣 DEM ONES: I guess on Instagram when trap music started to become a thing.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: What is the most butt-tastic dancefloor activity you’ve ever witnessed while DJing?

📣 DEM ONES: I DJ'd an all girls boat party this summer and the whole day was butt-tastic activity. lol

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: What does a booty/body positive dance floor mean to you as a DJ?

📣 DEM ONES: It means there's no judgement. People can dress how they want and move how they feel. Just the freedom to express yourself as you are.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: What's your favorite music to DJ when dancers want to twerk (or when you want them to)?

📣 DEM ONES: Trap and Dancehall.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: What inspires you to move your butt as a dancer?

📣 DEM ONES: Music I can feel.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: Any memorable times as a DJ you had to adapt your selections to a particular audience?

📣 DEM ONES: One time I was DJing an afterparty for this festival Sappy Fest and I played this Red Hot Chili Peppers remix and everyone lost it. Normally i wouldn't play that type of music but because the remix had dancehall drums i was pretty confident it was the perfect compromise.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: What was your ASSpiration for this mix?

📣 DEM ONES: My friends. Anytime my friends and i all get together i'm always the one controlling the aux and the vibes are almost always twerking and whining. So I channeled that for this mix.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: What kind of butt do you have?

📣 DEM ONES: I'd say I have a #littlebootysmatter butt.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: What is your personal cultural background? Any specific cultural traditions related to booty-shaking that have influenced you?

📣 DEM ONES: My Dad is from Trinidad and my Mom is half Jamaican so dancing and 'booty-shaking' have a big influence on me and my DJ style.

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: How would you describe your politics? Any particular causes you support that you’d like to call others to action for?

📣 DEM ONES: I'm not huge into politics but I'm extremely passionate about the rights of humans and living beings. BLM is important to me, especially as a black woman. I support the LGBTQ+ community .

 

🔥 Light Twerkerz: Are there any affiliations (labels, crews, blogs, etc…) that we should list/link you with when promoting this mix?

📣 DEM ONES: Definitely. The biggest reason I started DJing is because my best friend and Toronto artist Haviah Mighty asked me to be her DJ. Shout out to #MightyGang 🍑
