Jiggy Tarsands is the latest alias of the mercurial Spencer Dee, a longtime veteran DJ in Toronto’s underground electronic music scene. Although his sound has evolved over the years, his passion for innovative and cutting-edge dance music has been a constant. With a keen ear and deep crates, Spencer has a knack for putting together compelling mixes that take the dancefloor on a journey into sound. As he says in the interview: “It’s not deep unless you have to work for it.”
We first met a few years back at a gig at the old Chelsea Lounge on Dundas. I recall enjoying his eclectic set and I distinctly remember running over to the booth a couple of times to peer over his shoulder and check out the Traktor display to see what was on deck. Since then I’ve caught him performing at the occasional Bounce party, some other one-off around town or at the occasional loft/warehouse jam and he’s always delivered the goods.
This latest incarnation is no exception. The sound of Jiggy Tarsands is deep, acid, warehouse, woozy, laidback nu-disco that’s slightly off-kilter.
