How are things going for you recently?
The year has been going good and, looks very promising. I’m looking forward to a bright year!
What have you been up to?
I have recently graduated from Academy of Sound Engineering in 2021, so this year I’ve been busy building my own craft, working hard on content, brand and myself. It has been a breeze and taking all the free time to educate and expand my craft.
If you could go back in time, what musical era would you choose to experience? Why?
Definitely the musical era between the 80s and early 2000s because all music written back then is still played till this day. It’s the musical era that influenced and introduced me to music ,the era that got me choosing old school music over some new school even though the music piece is way older than I am. The 80s to early 200s is the golden era in music for me.
Tell us a bit about the mix.
The importance in all my mixes is taking the listeners on a journey of music, specifically this one is on different type of journey meaning different types of genre under one mix taking you to the world of the famous Amapiano then flying over to the calm seas of Deep House, blessing the sound with a touch of South African afro house and entering the grooving space of South African house music, taking the rocket off and ending with Gqom music of which it’s the specific genre I want to take overseas. All these artists under each genre will be Proudly South African music and a great advantage for the listeners to indulge more on the party and music scene of the wonderful South Africa.
What’s your favourite track in the mix? How did you discover it?
It’s so hard to choose from! But I would definitely say ‘Camagusha’ by Spacesounds (Insertcoinz & Roscoesteazy) featuring Zubesky and how I discovered it was at Broke Boys AW/2021 where they played the unreleased at that time and it just woke my spirit up and what this song means is that it thanks God and the ancestors for the continuous protection and guidance over us in this difficult and weird times we living in. It’s a very African spiritual song mixed with a nice groove to the song that makes it enjoyable to listen and take in on what is being said.
Finally, who else would you like to see in the series?
I would love to see people of different race, culture, ethnic group and gender identity. It’s beautiful to see humans of different places from different backgrounds come together and listen to one sound and language, called music.
