#39: An interview with Proverb

Podcast-Mister-Deejay-Presents-CoverImage2

On this week’s episode I have an interview we conducted for SNMS with SA rapper Proverb. Proverb has been doing his thing for quite a while now and has earned the respect of not just his peers in South Africa, but with rappers and hip-hop lovers all over the continent. He has a significant following here in Uganda and it was a real pleasure to talk to him. His insight and knowledge of the music industry is quite something.

#38: Richy ‘My Words’ album listen

Podcast-Mister-Deejay-Presents-CoverImage2

On this week’s episode I have an interview we conducted on #SNMS with Richy on the occasion of the release of his debut album ‘My Words’.  Debut albums are always big deal of course, but this one was especially special, because Richy went through a lot before fnally settling with his current management team and actually getting on with the business of making music.

Richy was kind enough to let us listen to his entire album all the way through and I’m going to play you the discussion we had during the listen as well as snippets of selected songs.  You’ll also hear me mentioning a brand new site called http://www.myziki.com developed here in uganda where you can buy local music.  If you like what you hear, support richy by buying his album on MyZiki.

#37: Myko Ouma & JSomething of Mi Casa

Podcast-Mister-Deejay-Presents-CoverImage2

So… hello! Long time, as they say in our part of the world. The podcast has been off-air for a while and I have no excuses other than life just got in the way. This is a one-man operation and although it was always my intention to take a break every 12 episodes, this last break took a lil bit longer than I had planned. I can’t promise that there won’t be another lapse in episodes, but I can promise that they won’t be as long as this one and I will announce them beforehand. I’d like to thank everyone that has sent me messages of encouragement through email, on Twitter and Facebook and in person. I really appreciate the support and I’m glad this podcast has found a little audience out there.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, on to the business at hand.

This week’s podcast is broken up into two sections. The first is an interview with guitarist extraordinaire Myko Ouma, which was recorded waaay back in March when Myko dropped by the show to release his then new song Club Banger. The second features  an interview with JSomething of the incredible South African house band Mi Casa. Now if you are unfamiliar with Mi Casa and if you like your house music- actually if you like music, period-  you are in for a real treat.

#36: Game night with BFE

Podcast-Mister-Deejay-Presents-CoverImage2

I was recently told by a radio consultant that my radio show, SNMS, breaks almost every rule of conventional radio. Some of his criticisms were general- that we don’t have a clear structure, that the week-to-week format is all over the place, etc. But most of his criticisms (paranoia-alert!) seemed to be directed at me- that I talk too much, that I talk in the middle of songs, that I can be a little shout-y (I concede that one), that I’m sometimes rude to callers (but it’s SO funny!), that my enunciation needed work etc etc. By the time he was done with me, I felt about 1 foot tall.

When I thought about it a little later, I realised that although his points were valid, he was describing the sort of boring, cookie-cutter radio show that I absolutely hate and that we did not want SNMS to become.

Every production meeting we have for the show starts with the same question: how can we make our next show better than our last, and that philosophy has served us quite well for the 2 years we’ve been on air. It’s what makes us try things like the BFE game night that you are about to hear.

If you are a radio consultant, you should switch this off now because what you are about to hear may hurt your sensibilites. For the rest of you, enjoy the craziness! And don’t forget to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes!

#35: Navio introduces the Kata remix ft Benny D

Podcast-Mister-Deejay-Presents-CoverImage2

I have a very simple recording for you this week and it’s from when Navio came by the show to drop the remix to his Kata track. The remix features Benny D (Akon’s official DJ) and it maintains the high energy, high tempo feel of the original.

Before Navio and I got down to the buiness at hand I had to play him my own (very unofficial) Kata remix.
