With a new mix on www.podomatic.com/soulshack each month , DJ-J-ME started "The Soul Shack" in November 2005 on Soulstream Networks as a way to share with the world his take on 'good' music...made with soul. From soulful & classic house to nu disco & chillwave to neo-soul & nu-jazz to rn'b to old school, funk and 'real' hip hop, it's all fair game on "The Soul Shack". Each month, depending on Jamie's mood you may hear any or all of the above music - sometimes a mixed bag of 'all things soulful', sometimes just a particular theme or genre...but always soulful! With Soul Shack parties having occurred in Toronto, New York, Miami & LA, the brand (and DJ-J-ME) continues to grow and gain new fans. Check this podcast for the latest Soul Shack mixes. (Archived Soul Shack mixes are available at www.mixcloud.com/soulshack) About DJ-J-ME: In demand, Toronto based dj who has played everything from 2,000 person Fortune 500 corporate events to Toronto rooftop hotspots like Kost & Lavelle to a decade of TIFF events in Yorkville for various celebrities, as well as gigs in NYC, LA, Chicago & Miami (where he enjoyed a monthly winter residency before Covid hit). His music style can be described as eclectic, sophisticated and soulful, using remixes, edits and acapellas to put a fresh twist on even the most well known songs, seamlessly mixing the familiar with relatively unknown lounge grooves and forgotten gems to provide a unique and engaging soundtrack.

The Soul Shack (Sept/Oct 2022) aka "2022 Bar Promo"
So back in the winter when places finally started opening up again, I recorded a 2022 Bar Promo mix, thinking I'd use it to try and get some gigs...and then got so busy that I never gave it to any venues! It's a great mix, so I figured I should use it as a Soul Shack mix before the year ends! Here's the full live recording with the "first half of the night" being a mix of funk, soul, retro, hip hop, rn'b, indie alternative, lots of blends and reworks...a real mixed bag, and the 2nd half being more of a "party" mix of house, amapiano, throwbacks, hip hop, lots of blends and reworks too. Hope you enjoy!Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dj_j_meSubscribe on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/id306968245Follow on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/dj_j_meBookings & Merch: jamiewichartz @ yahoo.ca
The Soul Shack (July/Aug 2022) aka "Summer Home in Mykonos"
So I brought back the "Cottage Mix Series" this summer, but in a very different vibe! Last year I wanted to record a promo mix for a new venue opening called Toronto Beach Club, what my vision was for the soundtrack for their patio, warm feel good house with some Mediterranean vibes, sunny remixes of familiar songs...but never got a chance to record it. This summer I finally got a chance to record it and decided to call it Summer Home In Mykonos. Here it is, I hope you enjoy! (and if you do, please share the mix and leave me a comment!)Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dj_j_meSubscribe on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/id306968245Follow on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/dj_j_meBookings & Merch: jamiewichartz @ yahoo.ca
The Soul Shack (May/June 2022) aka "Birthday Livestream 2022"
I think this is going to be my last Birthday Livestream, but I guess we'll find out next April. I had a visual theme for this one, the first half of the stream I had Pretty In Pink playing behind me and played all new wave CFNY retro and classic house, and for the second half I had the movie Juice playing behind me and played all late 80's / early 90's hip hop & rn'b throwbacks... very self indulgent! So if you missed the actual livestream because you were watching that painful Raptor's loss, here's your way to enjoy it on your own schedule (without having to hear me talk over the music lol!)

The Soul Shack (April 2022) aka "Throwback Rn'B Mix"
So April 2020 at the start of Covid I got nostalgic and recorded a 90's (isolating in the) house mix. A year later Ontario was going into yet another 4 week lockdown and I got nostalgic again, posting a hip hop from my twenties mix. This year I figured I'd keep with this new tradition of nostalgia for April and am posting a Throwback rn'b mix! This mix is more mainstream than my usual more "neo soul" rn'b vibes, inspired heavily by a wedding I had recently dj'd, where the grooms wanted throwback rn'b during dinner. Hope you enjoy this timeless mix!Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dj_j_me Subscribe on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/id306968245 Follow on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/dj_j_me Bookings & Merch: jamiewichartz @ yahoo.ca
The Soul Shack (March 2022) aka "2021 Lounge Music ReCap Pt 1"
Here is my annual lounge music recap from the past year. (This year was a little different and I already did the funkier hip hop flips/blends/re-edits recap in February) As usual, lots of range here in tempo and style, some new stuff, some reworks of old (and one actual "old" song that I discovered via Skratch Bastid last year and just had to include), but all (non house) stuff that I really liked in 2021. So fix yourself a drink, sit back and enjoy the vibes (or lets be real, throw it on in the background while working from home or doing your household chores lol!)Subscribe on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/id306968245Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dj_j_meBookings & Merch: jamiewichartz @ yahoo.ca
The Soul Shack (Sept/Oct 2021) aka Sunday Morning Edition - Cottage Mix 2021
It's finally recorded! Old people my age you're gonna LOVE this mix! Definitely if you're a fan of laid back chill vibes to ease into the weekend with a coffee (or with me posting this on Podomatic in January, for hibernating through the cold & snow of winter). This is the last (and possibly best) installment of the Cottage Mix Series "Sunday Morning". I broke it into 3 parts on Mixcloud, but I'm trying to catch up here, so it's all one long 6+ hour mix!Soul Shack fans should still enjoy (it's still based on my personal taste in music) but this one has a much wider audience, so please, if you appreciate this mix, share the link! Share it with coworkers, family and facebook friends!
