On this week’s episode of the R.O.A.D. Podcast, the crew spoke to Vancouver-based DJ/producer Nick Bike. The renowned remixer described how it feels to have DJ legends like DJ Jazzy Jeff and Questlove praise and play his edits.
The fellas also shared some of their favorite edits and remixes from “The Bike Crate” and asked Nick how he managed to migrate his audience from Bandcamp to Patreon after getting his account shut down due to the recent DMCA copyright infringement crackdowns.

At this year’s PLAYLIST Retreat, six of the attendees were selected to compete in an impromptu DJ battle. Nick Bike, EASE, DJ Jaycee, Trayze, DJ BYTE, and Damianito competed to win a pair of Rane TWELVE controllers and a Rane SEVENTY-TWO mixer. The battle was hosted by DJ Zimmie, and the judges chose EASE as the winner.
Each contestant was given a USB drive with a selection of songs from which they had to build their sets. This meant that the DJs had to come up with new routines, as opposed to relying on material from previous battles.
DJ set times:
Nick Bike: 1:40
DJ Jaycee: 11:17
DJ BYTE: 23:35
