As Canada's first rock-driven radio mix show, you can catch "The Zone's Mixtape" every weekday at 5pm in The Zone @ 91-3.

And now, in partnership with Coultish Management, The Zone is bringing the show to Capital Ballroom! "The Zone's Mixtape LIVE" is on Thursday, May 11th, 2023 - featuring world class DJ/Producer/Remixer, A.Skillz.

A.Skillz will be joining The Zone's resident DJ (and creator of The Mixtape), DJ Boitano. The night will be a celebration of music as you dance to everything from classic and modern rock, to hip hop, funk and house.

The night will also feature a set from Mixtape regular, DJ Geekout (a.k.a. The Zone's resident geek, webmeister Bud).


A.Skillz is a true party rocker behind the turntables, captivating crowds with his ability to embrace all aspects of music that he takes inspiration from and mash them up into a unique cocktail, infused with his own signature flavour of funk. With his DJ bookings taking him to the four corners of the world, he has appeared on stages big and small and no matter what venue or style, he always brings the house down...

Having clocked up over six million plays on his Soundcloud page, his records have gained the support of the biggest names in the industry, from Jazzy Jeff to Pete Tong, Annie Mac to Zane Lowe, whilst his DJ mixes have won over an army of supporters and resulted in him being commissioned by Radio 1 to put together a special DJ mix for their Beatles tribute night, that even had Paul McCartney tapping his feet. His James Bond mini mix is the only ever mix to be played on every daytime show on Radio 1 in the UK, whilst his productions have appeared in films, TV adverts and many a computer game.

His label Jam City has released, alongside his own work, tracks from the likes of DJ Yoda, Doorly, the Cuban Brothers, Afrika Bambaataa, Jungle Brothers, Nightmares on Wax, Mica Paris to name just a few, whilst his productions have seen him collaborate with a selection of some of the industry's finest including: Kurtis Blow, Dr Luke, Nasa, Krafty Kuts, DJ Numark, Beardyman, Nick Thayer and Z trip.

DJ Boitano

As a born-and-raised Vancouver Islander, Bryan Capistrano (a.k.a. DJ Boitano) has become one of those lucky individuals who makes a living through his love for music. During the day, he's the Music Director and Assistant Program Director of Canada's oldest modern/indie rock radio station West of Toronto, The Zone @ 91-3. By 5 o'clock, he's behind the decks as the resident DJ for The Zone and the creator of Canada's FIRST rock-driven radio mix show, The #Mixtape. 

DJ Boitano has spun tunes in a multitude of venues around Greater Victoria - he's played everywhere from small rooms and patios to opening up for acts like Black Pistol Fire at the Capital Ballroom and Carly Rae Jepsen at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. On top of this, he's played festivals and outdoor concerts all over the Island such as Rifflandia, Rock The Shores and the Laketown Shakedown - keeping the crowd warm for acts such as Wu-Tang Clan, Sugar Ray, AWOLNATION, Weezer, The Black Keys, Jane's Addiction and many more.
