Rob Smith (Smith & Mighty – Bristol England)
Long before Bristol had become a recognized stronghold for down tempo trip-hop and spy-soundtrack dubs, the duo of Rob Smith and Ray Mighty teamed in the late ’80s for two early break beat tracks, “Walk on By” and “Anyone Who Had a Heart.” The anachronistic fusion of sophisticated Burt Bacharach productions with laidback hip-hop prefigured trip-hop’s later fascination with the more polished end of ’60s adult-pop.

Aram Scaram (Citizen Sound)
A lover of music & sound system culture, Citizen Sound is the production moniker of Toronto-based DJ and producer Aram Scaram. He began his musical journey as a DJ in 1999 rocking local dance-floors with his soulful, dubbed out vinyl selections. His first residency was a weekly at a popular downtown bar called Ciao Edie. It is here where he would hone his skills as a selector. It is also here where he met Sassa’le and the radio chapter started.
Lee Castle aka Sassa’le is no stranger to the underground music scene. This veteran DJ, producer, and radio host, originally from Bristol, England took residence in Toronto in the early nineties. Sassa’le is the sole founder of the present day Version Xcursion, established in 1996. He has been the opening DJ for a variety of well-known artists and interviewed many others on his radio show.
