For our final show of the year we caught up with Steve Hogg aka Vox Portent. Having just released his album titled “Youth”, we wanted to get to know a little more about the humble producer from Johannesburg.
His emotional live set culminates a range of downtempo styles, and it was an honour to see him perform it live in studio. Heavily influenced by similar producers we see Vox Portent on a steady upward path to becoming one of South Africa’s better known live acts.
South Africa’s own deep house hero supplies us with our sixty Third podcast this week. Pretoria born Jullian Gomes needs no introduction. Having just released his first album after more than 10 years in the industry. The wait was worth it, selling out in only a few weeks.
We caught up with Jullian to hear about his journey. A perfectly rounded mix accompanies the interview and shows exactly why the world respects such a quality artist.
After the announcement dropped that Robin Would, would no longer be performing any gigs for the foreseeable future. You can imagine the excitement we at Sound Sensible Radio had when we knew we had already lined him up for our SSR62 podcast.
The timing was perfect and the stage was set. For one last showcase and informative chat with this highly talented selector and stalwart DJ.
In this week’s podcast, Luigi Tozzi gears us up for TOYTOY’s fifth birthday. The young Italian producer travels to South Africa for the first time for an exclusive gig in Johannesburg.
His unique blend of ambient and atmospheric sounds, mixed with the hypnotic elements of techno, has catapulted him into the electronic music world over the past two years, and he is now considered to be a prolific player in the techno scene.
Finding a connection with the Swedish label Hypnus Records, a platform allowing him regular releases to a niche market, helped Luigi develop his sound. In doing so gave him the opportunity to join Dino Sabatini’s label, Outis Music.
Thank you to Luigi for taking the time out to supply us with this emotional musical journey.
For this week’s Sound Sensible Radio podcast we have a young, dynamic and highly talented DJ in the form of Kyle Russouw. A resident at ERA night club in Cape Town, as well as a firm TOYTOY favourite and regular guest. Kyle has quickly made his way up the ranks as a class act in South Africa.
His tight mixing style and impeccable track selection blends dark, atmospheric and deep electronic sounds into what can only be described as an unforgettable journey.
