Bedroom Session Vol. 8 | "Southy"
Bedroom Session Col. 8 titled "Southy" is a 100% South African Hip Hop mix curated by BASMNT. The future of our local Hip Hop is vast and booming with talent! I'm definitely going to be playing more local music in my mix series.
Bedroom Session Vol. 07 | "Bars & Beats"
Bedroom Session Vol. 07 titled "Bars & Beats" is exactly the girl it thinks she is. The mix features an array of mean soulful head boppin instrumentals and a couple of my all time classic Hip-Hop songs that bring nothing but straight raps, bars only.
Bedroom Session Vol. 06 | "Ase Trap Ke Pina Tsa Grootman"
"Ase Trap Ke Pina Tsa Grootman." I wanted to take it back for the old-heads. Mid-Tempo is still is one of the most respected genres in South Africa and has even played a huge role in the evolution of Kwaito music. Y2K was definitely the peak 'Street Bash' era and if you had the privilege of attending one, you most likely know these gems.
Bedroom Session Vol. 05 | "The 3rd Place"
Bedroom Session volume 5 was inspired by one of my favorite venues to party at in Jo'burg, The Third Place. House music is predominant genre, but I love this place even more because the people have an open ear to literally all sounds. One of the best places for a DJ to play, energies are always on a high and the party always goes on into the morning
Bedroom Session Vol. 04 | "No Wahala"
”No wahala” is the pidgin expression used for confirmation or approval. For volume 4 of my 'Bedroom Session' series, I'm taking ya'll on a trip to West African. I curated a mix with several of my favorite 'Afrobeat' songs that are sure to get you in the groove and probably craving Jollof too.
