StandardTapes 04: Vanity Muscles
Vanity Muscles, aka Lucy Lo', aka one half of 84.85, is the latest moniker from local DJ/producer Jay Jolliffe. VM is designed as a vehicle to marry Jolliffe's two loves: rap music and house music.

Vanity Muscles, aka Lucy Lo’, aka one half of 84.85, is the latest moniker from local DJ/producer Jay Jolliffe. VM is designed as a vehicle to marry Jolliffe’s two loves: rap music and house music. His latest mix, and the latest in our Standard Tapes series, focuses on the former.

Rather than blurring lines between genres, this mix blurs the frontier between mainstream and underground. If you’re a fan of rap or hip hop, some of these track names will probably be familiar to you; the same goes if you spend any amount of time on music blogs. But there’s also some tracks here that you may not recognize–and that’s good. One of the best parts about going out and seeing a DJ is discovering new music you didn’t know you loved. Same goes for downloading a mixtape from the internet.

Vanity Muscles is releasing a new, original production every week at his tumblr. You can also catch him playing rap music on October 29 at Red Light on Dundas West.
